eSentire and Cyxtera Technologies announced a partnership to bring customers security solutions designed to secure today’s hybrid IT environment.

The partnership combines eSentire’s 24×7 MDR with Cyxtera’s AppGate SDP zero-trust network offering, delivering 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’ security controls.

eSentire MDR ingests security data, leveraging 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 cloud policy enforcement, user access controls, and 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.”
