Strategic Alliance Extends Critical Asset Protection and Detection and Response Across the Network, Endpoints, Cloud, and SaaS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
LAS VEGAS, NV & CAMBRIDGE, ON – August 8, 2018 – eSentire, Inc., the largest pure-play Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider, and Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, today announced a strategic partnership to bring customers comprehensive security solutions designed to secure today’s modern hybrid IT environment.
The partnership combines eSentire’s 24x7 MDR with Cyxtera’s AppGate SDP zero-trust network offering, delivering industry-leading prevention and detection capabilities across customers’ hybrid IT environments. The two companies will jointly go-to-market to maximize customer reach for this mid-sized enterprise offering.
“Digital transformation of our customers is accelerating the adoption of hybrid IT, fundamentally changing the enterprise perimeter and the methods required to secure it,” said Kerry Bailey, eSentire CEO. “Cyxtera and eSentire share a common vision – that traditional security solutions and methods are challenged to secure the new highly distributed enterprise. With this partnership, our joint customers gain modern security solutions that were built specifically for modern hybrid IT environments that span prevention, protection, and detection and response capabilities. eSentire established and leads the MDR security category; our customers look for our continued innovation to help them operate securely now and into the future. Solutions like AppGate SDP deliver on our commitment to our customers and partners.”
eSentire MDR and its Security Operations Centers (SOC) investigate and respond in real-time to known and unknown threats that bypass its customers’ traditional security controls. eSentire MDR ingests mass amounts of security data, leveraging advanced tools, like machine learning, to detect threats and respond to them on the customer’s behalf. Customers can now include AppGate SDP with eSentire MDR service, delivering improved cloud policy enforcement, fine-grained user access controls, and better user behavior-based response capabilities.
“Our analysts leverage the richest data sets available to make fast, informed decisions on behalf of our customers,” said Bailey. “AppGate SDP enriches those toolsets with user behavior and access control data that extends our response capabilities.”
“Organizations understand the need to modernize their security programs to keep up with transformative IT initiatives,” said Manuel D. Medina, CEO of Cyxtera. “Cyxtera is committed to securing network access in a perimeter-less, hybrid environment. Our AppGate SDP solution combined with eSentire’s MDR services can significantly lower the risk of a security event. eSentire’s security analysts have the benefit of AppGate SDP’s fine-grained identity-centric access controls and dynamic policy enforcement – a quantum leap over outdated, static IP-based access control methods – so they can quickly detect and respond to threats.”
eSentire and Cyxtera are exhibiting at Black Hat USA, August 4-9, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, and available to discuss the partnership: eSentire booth #2010; Cyxtera booth #244.
