eSentire MDR for Cloud


9 minutes read
On-Premises. In The Cloud. Hybrid. We're All-In To Protect You.
A graphic outlining three key service areas under eSentire MDR for Cloud, such as 24/7 MDR for Cloud, Cloud Security Posture Management, and Cloud Workload Protection, and the security outcomes you can expect.

Cloud environments are incredibly dynamic. Most cloud threats stem from the misconfiguration and unaccounted use of the cloud platform itself. In addition, many security leaders are challenged with having the in-house resources necessary to build, optimize, and manage their multi-cloud environments without requiring continuous manual monitoring.

At eSentire, we prioritize the detection of cloud-based vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and suspicious activity across any cloud environment – no matter where your users and data reside – so you can focus on scaling your business operations securely.

We protect your multi-cloud environments and cloud-based applications with 24/7 threat detection, investigation and response, combined with best-in-breed Cloud Security Posture Management and Cloud Workload Protection. Our cloud experts have a deep understanding of the refined tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) leveraged by attackers in multi-cloud environments. We provide seamless monitoring, scanning and control, delivering unmatched visibility, correlation and protection with MDR for Multi-Cloud environments across AWS, Microsoft and Google to protect your business from cloud-based threats including:

Our Best-of-Breed Technology Ecosystem Approach

Our MDR for Cloud Ecosystem includes:

Simplify Multi-Cloud Security with Lacework

We are Lacework’s first global Managed Detection and Response partner and are proud to provide our Cloud Workload Protection service with Lacework, expanding our deep expertise across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud with further visibility, differentiated behavior-based threat detection and context-rich insights to fuel our multi-signal threat investigations. Through this partnership you can leverage your existing investment in the Lacework platform in a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) scenario for eSentire management, or partner with us for a completely Managed Offering.

The Lacework Polygraph® Data Platform automatically learns and understands behaviors across an organization’s cloud environment using machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cloud behavioral analytics. From there, eSentire’s 24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts and renowned Threat Response Unit (TRU) stop active threats before they become business disrupting events with a Mean Time to Contain of less than 15 minutes. If an automated block is not possible, we perform multi-signal investigation and prioritize threat response recommendations with informed guidance in alignment with your team.

Managed Detection and Response For Your Multi-Cloud Environment

We understand each cloud platform is unique and has different uses in a multi-cloud strategy. We deliver 24/7 Managed Detection and Response, Cloud Workload Protection and Cloud Security Posture Management, and across AWS, Microsoft and GCP.

MDR Built To Scale With Your Growing Multi-Cloud Environment

The eSentire XDR Cloud Platform makes eSentire’s Managed Detection and Response service possible. Patented machine learning eliminates noise, enables real-time detection and response and automatically blocks known and unknown threats. Our distributed, cloud-native platform was built to provide security, reliability, and redundancy at scale and on demand to grow with your business and cloud security needs.

Detection Engineering Driven By Industry Experts

eSentire's Threat Response Unit (TRU) delivers counter-threat research and proprietary content to stay ahead of attackers targeting multi-cloud environments. TRU builds proprietary detectors, and runbooks across AWS, Microsoft, and Google environments, all mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework. We publish original research and security advisories so you're up-to-date on the latest cyber landscape and cloud security risks.

eSentire in Action

24/7 MDR With Azure Sentinel & Azure Active Directory (AD)

The Challenge:

Threat actors commonly try to remove important security controls like multi-factor authentication (MFA) to gain or maintain access to a user account they have targeted.


24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts are alerted via Azure Sentinel whenever MFA requirements are removed and follow a proprietary runbook to streamline the investigation process.


A sudden change in MFA requirements is very unusual and a potential indicator of compromise. With the right context established and the eSentire XDR platform’s direct integration with Azure AD, our analyst can suspend the credentials of the user who removed the MFA policy, minimizing the risk of any other important security policies being tampered with.

Threat Detection and Investigations in Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

The Challenge:

Cloud infrastructure providers like GCP provide significant geographic regional control on where their data is stored. Threat actors can use this to their advantage as a means of evading detection, by creating cloud instances in unused geographic service regions.


eSentire has a proprietary GCP detector and investigative runbook designed to regularly scan for cloud administrative activity in typically unused GCP regions and our 24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts are alerted if such activity is identified.


Our analysts alert would alert you and confirm if the activity is expected or not. If not, SOC analysts would recommend the user’s credentials be suspended, perform further investigative work to determine if any other malicious admin activities happened, and find the initial intrusion source.

Real-time MDR With Network on AWS

The Challenge:

Many in-house security teams don’t have visibility across their AWS network traffic, which means they can’t monitor potential cyber threats across their full AWS environment.


Through eSentire MDR for Network, we leverage native AWS traffic mirroring to perform deep packet inspection based on signature and behavior-based detections using both industry standard commercial detections and proprietary detections developed by our TRU team.


Escalating levels of response are available to align with compliance and shared responsibility models. E-mail alert with instructionsfor your security team,TCP-RST at the VPC level,or API integration withindustry leading firewallsare all available.

Why Multi-Signal MDR Matters

Our multi-signal approach ingests endpoint, network, log, cloud, asset and vulnerability data that enables complete attack surface visibility. Automated blocking capabilities built into our eSentire XDR Cloud Platform prevent attackers from gaining an initial foothold while our expert Elite Threat Hunters can initiate manual containment at multiple levels of the attack surface. Through the use of host isolation, malicious network communication disruption, identity-based restriction and other measures, we can stop attackers at multiple vectors and minimize the risk of business disruption.

At eSentire we recognize that the attack surface is continuously evolving and expanding. While our MDR service protects your organization from modern attackers and the vectors they target most often, we are continuously analyzing and developing new services & detections to outpace the adversaries. In our 20+ history, we pride ourselves on the fact that no eSentire client has experienced a business disrupting breach. With over 2000+ customers across 80+ countries, we don’t just claim to deliver complete response. We prove it, and are proud to earn our global reputation as the Authority in Managed Detection and Response, each and every day.
