eSentire Launches Embedded Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) Service to Mitigate Advanced Threats in a Continuum

Available Now, eSentire's CSIR Removes Incident Response Complexity, Reduces Risk, Unifies Technical Remediation and Supports Incident Response Best Practices

CAMBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2013) -  eSentire, the leader in active threat protection solutions and managed services, today announced immediate availability of its embedded Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) service, an augmented layer of protection to its industry-recognized Active Threat Protection suite of services.

eSentire's CSIR offers client-tailored responses to a plethora of active cyber security attack scenarios. The risk of breach is too great to ignore, and having a predetermined and tested response strategy is essential to protecting a company's mission critical data and intellectual property. CSIR provides a robust decision-making framework for capturing roles and responsibilities, mobilizing strategies, escalating stakeholder roles and responsibilities and ensuring communication guidelines and best practices are executed successfully.

As part of the service, eSentire will develop and maintain a formal incident response plan to reflect changes in corporate IT infrastructure, the compliance environment and advanced threat landscape. The service will include annual 'fire drill' exercises, and client IR plans will be backed-up and available to eSentire's team of expert threat analysts on demand. 

G. Mark Hardy, president of National Security Corporation, and a respected information security industry insider, said recent malware and hyper-targeted ransomeware threats like CryptoLocker demonstrate that every enterprise user can be a target.

"Publicly-traded companies have an obligation to not only protect their users, but their shareholders and investors as well," Hardy said. "Attacks are inevitable but successful attacks are not. Mitigating real and present risks by implementing a best-in-class incident response capability should be a top priority for every responsible executive from IT to the board room."

"eSentire's reputation is built on adapting to the changing advanced threat ecosystem. Calling in a security firm post-breach is a reactive measure and simply doesn't get ahead of the enemy. Our embedded approach is proven, with boots on the ground and safeties off," said eSentire CEO J. Paul Haynes. "The addition of CSIR to the eSentire service portfolio provides the quiet assurance our clients demand, and solidifies our position as the go-to provider of active threat protection services."
