Waterloo, Ontario, Oct. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — eSentire, recognized globally as the Authority in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced the expansion of its award-winning MDR services with Microsoft Azure Sentinel, as part of its integration with the complete Microsoft 365 Defender and Azure Defender product suites supporting Microsoft SIEM, endpoint, identity, email and cloud security services.
As a Microsoft Gold Security Partner, eSentire has demonstrated deep response capabilities. Many organizations, identifying as MDR providers, simply detect threats across Microsoft services before escalating next steps to their customers. Not only does eSentire detect and investigate threats across an organization’s Microsoft ecosystem, but it actively responds by isolating hosts, containing threats, and remediating security incidents on the customers’ behalf, with a Mean Time to Contain of 15 minutes.
All eSentire MDR for Microsoft services are zero-install, delivering time to value in hours. eSentire’s proprietary Atlas XDR Cloud platform ingests signals from Microsoft 365 and Azure environments, enriching them with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning models for automated disruption, enabling rapid human-led investigation when required, and providing further contextual awareness, driving complete response. Standard 24/7 threat responses from eSentire include:
- Prevent infected endpoints from spreading to other machines
- Isolate ransomware, data exfiltration and hands-on keyboard attackers
- Quarantine malicious files and terminate processes
- Stop/remove service and registry keys
- System reboots to remove memory persistence
- Account and access suspension to stop compromised user from corrupting data or applications
- Prevent compromised email accounts from forwarding malicious content
- Facilitate organizational retroactive email purges
The 2020 ISC2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study confirmed that more than 50% of organizations are looking to consolidate security technology spends and information sources over the next year. Cybersecurity leaders have adapted their strategies in response to shifting hybrid work environments and turned to Microsoft’s advanced and highly integrated security licenses to replace their legacy tools. Despite being familiar with the Microsoft suite, many businesses lack the in-house expertise and resources to properly optimize and manage these tools.
The eSentire MDR for the Microsoft portfolio addresses these gaps with highly certified Microsoft security experts and zero-trust security services that deliver 24/7 Microsoft ecosystem visibility, security event monitoring, threat detection, threat investigation, threat disruption and complete response, across three core areas of service that can be consumed independently or bundled as part of a complete solution:
- eSentire MDR with Azure Sentinel: Monitor & respond to events generated from sources across the Microsoft cloud ecosystem including Azure Security Center, Azure Defender, Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Cloud App Security, and Microsoft Defender for Identity
- eSentire MDR with Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Office 365 email threat prevention, identity response, account & access suspension and phishing attack investigations & response; all led by eSentire experts
“With the launch of eSentire MDR with Microsoft Azure Sentinel, we are advancing our complete portfolio of MDR for Microsoft services and delivering robust Managed Detection and Response capabilities to organizations that have already made a significant investment in the Microsoft ecosystem,” said C.J. Spallitta, Chief Product Officer, eSentire. “With eSentire you can significantly reduce your security spend and maximize your cyber return on investment (ROI) while substantially reducing your risk of suffering a business disrupting security event. Our customers have experienced a 35% savings in technology costs and a 50% reduction in overall threat detection and response total cost of ownership (TCO) by choosing eSentire MDR for Microsoft.”
