February 15, 2022 | 3 MINS READ

Waterloo, Ontario, Feb. 15, 2022 eSentire, the global Authority in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named eSentire to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category. The Security 100 category recognizes MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

Founded to address the challenge that traditional security controls would continue to be bypassed by sophisticated cyber attackers, eSentire created the category of Managed Detection and Response to define its innovative approach to delivering complete response to modern security threats. eSentire proudly protects the reputations and operations of more than 1200 organizations in over 75 countries from business disrupting security events. With more than 50 percent of its customer base recognized by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) as a critical sector whose operational disruption would debilitate national economic security, public health, or safety, eSentire has firmly established itself as the industry’s most trusted and complete MDR provider. 

The firm differentiates itself from system integrators and Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) by exceeding market accepted definitions of Managed Detection and Response. eSentire proudly owns the R in MDR, correlating multiple signals and minimizing attacker dwell time, while delivering the world’s most complete response capability with a Mean Time to Contain of less than 15 minutes. Powered by an artificial intelligence advantage, eSentire’s Atlas XDR Cloud Platform enables real-time detection and response at scale, as each threat detection machine learning model, and expert response action are proactively pushed across the eSentire global customer base. This Security Network Effect coupled with the support of eSentire’s 24/7 Threat Response Unit, Elite Threat Hunters and SOC Analysts, enables a level of protection that cannot be underestimated in today’s evolving cybercrime ecosystem.  eSentire’s security portfolio also includes strategic assessment and planning Managed Risk services and Digital Forensics and Incident Response services.

Customers and partners around the world are showing eSentire that orchestrating an ecosystem of technologies and delivering an outcome is the number one objective. As such, eSentire has established a partner environment that is both flexible and customizable so together, with its partners, eSentire can meet the buyer where they are in their security journey. eSentire’s ecosystem is focused on mapping partner engagement, productivity and overall experience to the ways end customers want to consume best-in-class cybersecurity services whether it be through new marketplaces, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), Trusted Advisors, Distributors or Technology Partners. Most notably, eSentire has begun delivering to partners and their customers all the benefits of eSentire’s Atlas XDR platform, Atlas XDR Investigator agent (eSentire’s proprietary eDiscovery and Digital Forensic Investigation technology), and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

“eSentire is committed to providing our partners with innovative, flexible and scalable security solutions that protect their customers where they are targeted the most – at the endpoint, email and identity levels,” said Bob Layton, Chief Channel Officer, eSentire. “As our market evolves the channel community must collaborate differently to derive true value for our customers.
