Company's Managed Detection and Response Service Honored with Cybersecurity's Gold Standard of Excellence

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - February 16, 2017) - eSentire Inc., the leader in managed threat detection and response services, today announced it was awarded "Best SME Security Solution" in SC Awards' Excellence category for eSentire Managed Detection and Response™ (MDR). The award was presented during the 21st annual SC Awards Gala on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, presented by SC Media.

"eSentire is honored to receive this distinction," said Nimmy Reichenberg, eSentire's Chief Marketing Officer. "It is clear that technology alone cannot protect against today's threat landscape. Our ability to offer 24x7 managed detection and response by elite security analysts provides the mid-market with enterprise-grade protection that has traditionally been completely out of their reach. This award acts as further testament to our relentless effort to protect our customers' networks."

Winners in the SC Awards' Excellence category were selected by a panel of IT security experts from both the private and public sector. During the judging process, each finalist went through a rigorous evaluation that included in-depth analysis, analyst reports, and/or product reviews. After a thorough and comprehensive analysis of each finalist's strengths, eSentire Managed Detection and Response was chosen as the winner of an Excellence Award in the Best SME (Small-Medium Enterprise) Security Solution category.

"From advanced hacks, to massive malvertising campaigns, to a host of ransomware variations, 2016 showed that once again, cybercriminals are upping their game when it comes to exploiting today's businesses," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. "As a winner in the Excellence Award category of the SC Awards, eSentire proved its ability to execute comprehensive security measures to protect the enterprise from data-stealing attacks."

eSentire's award-winning MDR service has propelled the company's success, cementing its leadership position within the MDR marketplace. As the largest pure-play MDR vendor, eSentire concluded a record year in 2016, and was included in Gartner's 2016 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services - a list of service providers that can support organizations seeking to improve their threat detection and incident response capabilities.

The SC Awards are recognized throughout the cybersecurity industry and are the crowning achievement for IT security professionals and products. Each year, hundreds of applications are reviewed and narrowed down to a select group of finalists that represent the best solutions, services, and professionals working around the clock to protect today's businesses from an ever-changing landscape of security threats.
