Press Release: eSentire Endpoint Managed Detection and ResponseTM, Powered by Carbon Black Strengthens Defense Against Cyber Threats and Attack Vectors
CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO – September 12, 2016 – eSentire, Inc., the leader in managed cyber threat detection and response services, today launched eSentire Endpoint Managed Detection and Response™ (MDR), powered by Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security. The integrated service makes endpoint security available to midmarket organizations, helping them strengthen their overall security posture.
Cybercrime and the attack vectors used by hackers are evolving faster than the traditional defenses organizations require to counter advanced threats. eSentire Endpoint MDR, powered by Carbon Black, provides a critical layer of protection for today’s most common target, the endpoint. (70% of all breaches occur at the endpoint according to Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report).
A Powerful Cybersecurity Combination
The integrated cybersecurity service makes eSentire the first and only vendor in Gartner’s 2016 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services to provide Carbon Black endpoint visibility and response as a comprehensive, fully managed security service.
eSentire Endpoint MDR provides real-time continuous monitoring, hunting, detection, and isolation of endpoint threats before they propagate within the customer’s network. The service goes beyond legacy solutions, leveraging analysts, attack patterns, and behavioral analytics to forensically investigate and combat unknown threats.
Carbon Black’s “Cb Response” is the market-leading incident response and threat hunting solution. Its integration with eSentire Endpoint MDR allows the service to continuously record and centralize all endpoint activity, providing eSentire’s Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts with complete, real-time information needed to understand exactly how attackers are targeting a customer’s organization so they can identify root cause, hunt anomalous behavior, and isolate threats with precision.
Cb Response empowers eSentire Endpoint MDR to streamline alert validation, accelerate investigations, reduce dwell time, eliminate unnecessary reimaging, and limit IT involvement in the security lifecycle process. Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) recording is essential for threat remediation, complementing full packet capture analysis techniques. This enhanced visibility enables eSentire SOC analysts to rapidly contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.
“Technology simply isn’t enough to combat today’s sophisticated cyber-attacks. In the case of the endpoint, it has been clearly demonstrated that traditional antivirus and firewall technologies cannot prevent endpoints from being compromised. The attacks and malware are always evolving faster than the signatures can keep up,” said Mark McArdle, CTO, eSentire. “The key to MDR is having broad and deep visibility into the network and its endpoints. Identifying and understanding a threat is required before you can respond. eSentire Endpoint MDR provides our clients with unparalleled endpoint threat management. Our business has been built on hunting down and terminating threats, and partnering with Carbon Black allows us to deliver an affordable, premiere endpoint service to midmarket organizations.”
