At eSentire, we offer practical & pragmatic security solutions to help guard the intellectual property & infrastructure of enterprises. As a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), eSentire specializes in the delivery of comprehensive security consulting, continuous security monitoring services and immersive incident response. eSentire's crucial distinction stems from the fact that unlike many large companies whose primary business is integration, implementation, or product sales that address security as a sideline, eSentire focuses exclusively on information security issues on a daily basis. In order to consolidate multiple security functions in a single platform eSentire concluded that it must develop its’ own dedicated security service device technologies. These security technologies must then be further integrated into a powerful security event and information management multi-customer framework forming the baseline capability. Beyond this baseline capability however, what really makes our MSSP architecture truly effective is how that baseline technology is then combined with human analysts. The analysts overlay critical security-context knowledge and processes to make the technology effective and adaptable to both specific customer situations and the ever-changing threat landscape. The people produce a “contextual knowledge and adaptation” layer that supersedes any competitive prevention only product (ie. hardware / software). Furthermore, this combined dedicated technology /adaptive service layer concept is delivered at the 24×7 level of vigilance enterprises require.
