eSentire’s Award-winning Channel Program Underscores Strong Market Position and Partner-of-choice Rank with Leading Security Companies

Strong Channel Relationships and Programs Creates a Solid Foundation for Growth and Recognition

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario – April 10, 2019 – eSentire, Inc., the global leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced it has achieved year-over-year global growth of 50 percent, with 40 percent growth attributed to channel bookings in 2018. The company also announced an award-winning partner program and notable industry recognition, all positioning the company for further scale, productivity and ongoing dominance in the global MDR market.

As organizations embrace digital transformation, they look to MDR to protect the wide distribution of critical information across the cloud, network, endpoints and devices. eSentire enables its partners with the following key advantages for their clients:

  • A 24X7X365 Security Operations Center (SOC) running AI-assisted detection with expert analysts to rapidly hunt and contain threats that prevention misses
  • Robust channel enablement programs, portals and platforms offering best-in-class resources to its partner network, including a new global Cyber College launching in May 2019
  • Rapid and focused investment to drive automation, effectiveness and efficiencies

Chris Braden, VP of global channels and alliances, eSentire, said: “eSentire recognizes the vital and dynamic role that partners play in our strategy, and we work hard to ensure their success. Our partners play a key role in enabling us to achieve scalable growth and reach new markets. We always look to drive innovation in our program, so our partners can continuously create value for their customers. We will continue to provide powerful, channel-ready MDR solutions and services to help our partners address their customers’ evolving security needs.”

The evolution of eSentire’s Channel Program within the MDR market has led to significant growth and recognition for the company. eSentire is rapidly adding partners across North America and the UK. The interest from prospective partners in the company’s Channel Program has been strong and is coming from across the globe.
