eSentire Inc., a leader in Active Threat Protection solutions and managed security services, took home the award for 2015 Best IT Security Service at the prestigious HFM US Hedge Fund Services Awards.
The HFMWeek US Hedge Fund Services Awards were held October 22, 2015 in New York City and celebrated hedge fund technology providers that have raised the bar in their respective services over the past 12 months. The awards recognize and reward those that have outperformed their peers and demonstrated impressive customer service and product development.
