Back to Back Wins Affirm eSentire’s Position as a Leader in Asset Management

CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO, February 23, 2016 – eSentire, Inc., a leader in Active Threat Protection solutions and managed security services, today announced it was awarded “Best Security Solution” in the 2016 U.S. Technology Awards by HFM. The annual awards recognize and reward hedge fund technology providers, as well as firms with technology heavy solutions and products, that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past 12 months. Winners were announced during a February 22nd ceremony in New York City, NY. Felix Knoll, Executive VP, Worldwide Sales of eSentire accepted the award.

“The financial industry is a pillar of the U.S. economy, and cybercriminals see financial firms as lucrative targets, thanks to their high value assets and low tolerance to risk. Coupled with the fact that many firms lack the internal resources to devote to continuous cybersecurity management, it’s easy to see why it’s so important for hedge fund management companies to take a proactive approach in addressing cybersecurity threats,” said Eldon Sprickerhoff, founder and chief security strategist, eSentire. “We are honored to be recognized by HFM as Best Security Solution, as this win further demonstrates our continued efforts in providing unrivaled protection in the asset management space.”

eSentire continues to rank as the premier managed cybersecurity provider to hedge funds and alternative asset managers, striving to continually deliver services that shift with the factors influencing the industry. The company provides management cybersecurity solutions that are uniquely matched to the needs of financial firms, the assets they defend, and the regulatory measures they must adhere to. This ensures that firms continually receive the greatest level of threat protection available.
