WATERLOO, ONTARIO – January 13, 2021 – eSentire, a leading global Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider, today announced that it has been recognized in Forrester’s Now Tech: Managed Detection and Response Services Providers Q4 2020 report. The report provides an overview of 42 MDR providers across the information security sector. eSentire was included in the proactive hunter, investigator, and responder specialists functionality segment. The report is designed to help security and risk professionals understand the value they can expect from an MDR provider. It is also designed to help security and risk professionals select a vendor based on their respective expertise and response capabilities.
The proactive hunter, investigator, and responder specialists functionality segment was cited in the report as bringing “an MDR service to clients built on a foundation of deep subject matter expertise in analytics, incident response, and threat intelligence. Proactive hypothesis-driven threat hunting methodologies curated into analytics and their use of automation makes these vendors excel.”
“We are proud to be recognized as a ‘large and established MDR player’ in Forrester’s Now Tech: Managed Detection and Response Services Providers, Q4 2020 report. We remain relentless in our commitment to making our customers and partners’ customers safe from current and emerging threats. eSentire continues to innovate and produce end-to-end solutions that successfully address security gaps and offer the highest levels of protection,” said Kerry Bailey, CEO of eSentire.
“In one solution, you are achieving three big main objectives of your cybersecurity program,” said Alex Bazay, CISO, Align. “You’re getting visibility, you’re getting the detection and identification of potentially bad traffic, and you’re getting response if anything is detected as malicious.”
As the report author, Forrester analyst Jeff Pollard, writes: “most SOC teams find themselves far too overloaded to ever reach the promised land of becoming proactive with their threat hunting. MDR can give teams this boost by handling hunting via managed detection.” Pollard also notes that MDR providers should be expected to offer “comprehensive response actions that leverage existing infrastructure, not a limited set of already available EDR API integrations.”
