WATERLOO, Ont. – December 19, 2019eSentire, Inc., the global leader in cloud-delivered Managed Detection and Response (MDR) today announced a partnership with CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, to drive better detection and response for customers by extending and improving visibility across endpoint, network, log and cloud environments.

Digital transformation within modern businesses has outpaced the evolution of traditional security approaches, requiring organizations to adopt cloud-native security solutions that advance and adapt at the speed of their business. As two cloud-native platforms, CrowdStrike and eSentire bring simplicity, speed, and efficacy to endpoint protection and MDR. Combining the managed threat hunting capabilities of eSentire with CrowdStrike’s world-class endpoint protection solution and industry-leading proactive threat hunting services will help stop advanced threats.

Kerry Bailey, Chief Executive Officer, eSentire, said: “We are pleased to partner with the endpoint protection market innovator and leader CrowdStrike to manage the security challenges that digital transformation has created for businesses today, particularly in the mid-market segment. The relationship is focused on our combined go-to-market and innovation, which brings together the best security expertise and global security operations centers in the industry to support our joint customers.”

George Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, CrowdStrike, said: “We are partnering with eSentire to ensure that mid-market organizations benefit from the protection of a powerful and proven MDR solution that complements our next-generation endpoint protection solution.
