eSentire acquires cybersecurity AI leader Versive

Category Creator eSentire Continues to Evolve Managed Detection and Response with Advanced Artificial Intelligence Capabilities for the Machine-Scale World

CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO and SEATTLE– October 23, 2018 – eSentire, Inc., the largest pure-play Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider, today announced the acquisition of Seattle- based Versive Inc., an award-winning cybersecurity AI company that delivers advanced threat detection and automation with its platform. eSentire also announced the senior leadership appointments of former Versive executives Dustin Rigg Hillard as Chief Technology Officer, Ashley Fidler as Vice President, Product and Matthew Vanderzee as Vice President, Engineering. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Our evolution of MDR blends expert human analysis with AI systems to effectively act on the increasing volume of threats impacting organizations. Traditional managed security approaches and tools can’t rapidly scale to cope with the challenges of today’s business environments,” said Kerry Bailey, CEO, eSentire. “Merging expert data scientists, engineers, and security teams and integrating the power of AI into eSentire services will result in the most advanced MDR platform delivering the scalability, automation, and speed that the modern organization demands without sacrificing quality.”

Increasing data volumes, new computing environments (cloud, hybrid), and more porous networks (e.g. Internet of Things, Bring Your Own Device) mean the corporate attack surface is more dynamic and larger than ever before. By 2025, there will be a projected 163 zettabytes of digital data in existence, a tenfold increase from 2016.[1] The scale of data growth, in combination with the evolution of digital adversaries and the democratization of hacking tools and skills, necessitates human analysts be equipped with machine-scale technologies.

"Organizations simply cannot keep pace with the rate at which cyber threats are emerging and evolving, especially in the age of digital transformation," said Mike Sapien, Chief Analyst, Enterprise Services, Ovum. "This new-normal environment is driving the growth of the MDR market and leading companies like eSentire within it. The acquisition of Versive, a leading artificial intelligence technology company is a natural progression as eSentire looks to enhance its AI and data science capabilities. Versive's technology will enable eSentire to manage, respond and shut down bad actors in real time at greater scale and accuracy."

The blending of expert analysts with AI for a machine-scale world

eSentire’s evolution of MDR integrates security analyst expertise and technology. eSentire will bring together the power of AI with the existing MDR platform and security analyst expertise to:

“Rapidly evolving IT environments require a new approach to security. Automating and scaling security expertise with machine learning is the clear path to protecting organizations facing machine-scale security threats,” said Dustin Rigg Hillard, CTO, eSentire. “This is the perfect partnership to drive the next evolution of the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) category that eSentire created, further integrating human security expertise and machine scale automation to secure customer networks.”
