Bengaluru, India – April 4, 2024eSentire, Inc., the Authority in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), announced today the opening of its new Technology Innovation Center in India, under the legal entity eSentire India Private Limited. The Innovation Center will extend eSentire’s global footprint and give eSentire access to a pool of exceptional engineering talent, with expertise in cybersecurity, generative AI and low-code orchestration and automation. The focus of the Innovation Center will be to accelerate the capabilities of eSentire’s Atlas XDR Cloud Platform across three core functions:

Dustin Hillard, eSentire Chief Technology Officer, and Raghunath Konda, eSentire VP of Engineering, spearheaded the launch of the new Center in Bengaluru, including the hiring of 50 India-based software engineers, who will contribute to the enhancement of the Atlas XDR Cloud Platform.

“India is a thriving ecosystem of cybersecurity talent, particularly in cloud security and generative AI,” said Dustin Hillard, Chief Technology Officer at eSentire. “The opening of our Innovation Center in India will enable eSentire to fully leverage local talent to accelerate the capabilities delivered by our XDR platform as we continue to deliver industry leading MDR value with 24/7 SOCaaS, security monitoring and incident handling at scale.”

eSentire’s commitment to helping organizations anticipate, withstand and recover from cyber-attacks across their entire attack surface – whether on premises or in the cloud, is made possible by its Atlas XDR Cloud Platform. The eSentire platform has captured, processed and correlated the daily investigations and threat hunting activities of eSentire’s 200+ security experts for more than a decade, creating the world’s largest expert investigation and response dataset. The platform learns from human actions as every positive SOC investigation is amplified with a network effect across the eSentire customer base, rapidly protecting customers from emerging threat patterns.

As the industry leader in MDR and SOCaaS, eSentire’s ability to protect global businesses from known and unknown threats, by operationalizing threat intelligence and responding at scale, continues to set it apart from other MDR providers. eSentire was recently recognized as one of the top 3 MDR Providers in The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection and Response Services in Europe where analysts specifically cited eSentire’s exceptional capabilities in delivering and operationalizing threat intelligence, rapid threat containment and expert response. eSentire was also named in KuppingerCole’s July 2023 Worldwide Leadership Compass Report as the Overall Leader for Managed Detection and Response, as well as Product Leader, Innovation Leader and Market Leader.

The opening of eSentire’s Technology Innovation Center in India, follows its celebrated service expansion across the Middle East and demonstrates its commitment to not only hiring locally but continuing to protect businesses in the region with localized, compliant, 24/7 Managed Detection and Response cybersecurity services.

“Reputation is everything in this market, and eSentire checked all the boxes,” said eSentire customer Ramakrishnan Natarajan, Head of IT, Emirates Hospitals Group. “When we had done just 10% of the deployment, I could see outcomes and I could tell the quality of research that goes behind the alerts was really impressive. To see eSentire continue to invest in our region and expand their presence across India only demonstrates their commitment to innovation and excellence.”
