eSentire raises $47 million to provide AI-powered managed detection and response

Category creator and leader driving MDR innovation with human expertise at machine-scale
3 minutes read

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario and SEATTLE – March 4, 2019 eSentire, Inc., the global leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced it has raised an additional USD $47 million in funding led by majority investor Warburg Pincus and minority investors Georgian Partners and Edison Partners. This continued investment validates eSentire’s strong leadership position and will accelerate innovation to address the complexity of protecting data that is widely distributed and at machine scale.

Traditional security solutions lack the visibility, intelligence, scale and speed to keep pace with the rise of vulnerabilities and cyber threats, resulting in an ever-growing need for MDR. Category creator and leader eSentire provides organizations with constant dedicated threat detection and response, safeguarding their business from known and unknown threats across their entire attack surface.

eSentire is innovating the MDR category again through the application of a proprietary AI methodology for threat hunting and advanced automation to enable our security experts to operate at machine scale, which solves some of cybersecurity’s biggest challenges.

Kerry Bailey, CEO, eSentire, said: "Protecting the scale of information that is widely distributed across an organization’s infrastructure, endpoint, customers and supply chain partners requires the continued innovation of MDR by applying AI technology with expert analysts. Today’s business leaders recognize the fiduciary responsibility of securing mission-critical information and eSentire has been committed to this responsibility since creating MDR."

Cary J. Davis, Managing Director, Warburg Pincus, said: "eSentire is well positioned in the high-growth cybersecurity space to further accelerate MDR adoption and innovation as organizations look to solutions that provide end-to-end protection with the rising volume of data and threats penetrating IT environments. eSentire has the opportunity to build on its category creator and leadership position. We look forward to continuing to work with Kerry Bailey and his seasoned leadership team."

Aaron Sherill, Senior Analyst, 451 Research, said: "The managed security services (MSS) market continues to grow rapidly at a CAGR of nearly 17%, with global market revenues expected to reach more than $24 billion by 2022. Managed detection and response services are key drivers of this growth as executives and boards increasingly acknowledge the importance of using third-party experts to cope with the continued proliferation of sophisticated attacks on the one hand, and the ever-evolving compliance and regulatory requirements on the other."
