Waterloo, Ontario -- April 20, 2021 – eSentire, Inc., the leading global Managed Detection and Response (MDR) cybersecurity services provider, today announced that its Strategic Advisor, Amit Mital, has been appointed by the White House as Senior Director in the National Security Council and Special Assistant to the President. In his new role, Mital will focus on cybersecurity strategy and policy.

We wish Amit the very best, as he fulfills this special honor in serving his country.”

As eSentire’s Strategic Advisor, Mital played an integral role in supporting the advancement of the company’s MDR services and cloud-native Extended Detection and Response (XDR) platform, eSentire Atlas. With his support, eSentire has positioned itself to solve one of the CISO’s greatest challenges, achieving security at scale, by delivering expert level threat disruption, containment and response through cloud-based integration, with redundancy and reliability, on demand.

“Over the last three years I’ve witnessed eSentire’s maturation in delivering the industry’s only cloud-native Managed Detection and Response service to market,” said Amit Mital. “There is no end to cyber risk, so business leaders need to prioritize continuous improvement in threat detection and response. The passion Team eSentire has for this industry, and for its mission of disrupting threats before they impact business operations, is unparalleled. It’s been a privilege to share in that vision and I wish the entire team much success as they continue to expand their position as the industry’s Authority in Managed Detection and Response cybersecurity services.”
