Thomas H. Lee Partners
MDR Case Study

For private equity (PE) firms like Thomas H. Lee Partners, working with a trusted advisor like eSentire means staying ahead of cybercriminals targeting firms and their portfolio companies. In this video, Mark Benaquista, THL’s Managing Director, outlines why PE firms are a target, the challenges they face, and how eSentire MDR provides 24/7 threat detection for 30+ THL portfolio companies to improve their cyber controls, governance, and mitigate the risk of impacting deal valuation.

Company Description: THL is a private equity firm that invests in middle market growth companies across the Financial Technology & Services, Healthcare, and Technology & Business Solutions industries.

Industry: Private Equity

Security Challenges:

  • Lack of in-house expertise for 24/7 threat detection and response
  • Limited access to best in class cybersecurity tools that show where the cyber risks exist, how they’re being managed, and areas of improvement
  • Holistic view of the threat landscape impacting PE firms
  • Ability to completely protect assets, help them mature, and provide phishing and security awareness training for employees

Service Overview: 24/7 Multi-Signal Managed Detection and Response, Managed Vulnerability Service, Managed Phishing and Security Awareness Training

The eSentire Difference:

Mark recommends that other cybersecurity leaders in the Private Equity industry partner with an MDR provider like eSentire to better manage their cyber risks, feel secure, and be able to sleep at night.

The service benefits outlined by Mark include:

  • 24/7 Visibility, Threat Detection and Response
  • Cybersecurity maturity of assets and portfolio companies
