IT consulting provider Tecala has selected eSentire as its exclusive managed detection and response (MDR) provider in the ANZ region.

eSentire is a leader in the multi-signal MDR arena, and through its new partnership will enable Tecala to offer enterprises a bolstered cybersecurity service that detects and disrupts cyber-threats.

As part of the collaboration, eSentire will also expand its global presence beyond its current footprint in the North America and EMEA regions and into the APAC region.

“eSentire exemplifies the type of partner we are seeking as we focus on delivering our portfolio of cybersecurity services,” says Tecala managing director Pieter DeGunst.

“We want to help businesses reduce their manual processes and reinforce both security and business continuity.

“eSentire's ability to offer security solutions that scale and that handle large volumes of data, as well as produce enriched alerts and empowers us to respond to network anomalies, are all important to delivering the right outcomes for our customers.

MDR services fill the gaps left by preventative technologies, which only offer partial security in today's evolving threat environment, according to Tecala. MDR gives enterprises more confidence that their data and critical infrastructure and assets are secure — through the practice of detecting and responding to threats before they become business-impacting events.

Tecala will be offering eSentire's end-to-end MDR service as a comprehensive solution to customers across Australia and New Zealand as part of the partnership.

“We're already working on several joint engagements together and have been extremely impressed by the calibre of eSentire's people,” continues DeGunst.

“Team eSentire has the expertise to deliver response, remediation and results for our customers.

“We are thrilled to partner with them to support enterprises across Australia and New Zealand with security, compliance and risk management services.

The service includes 24/7 Security Operations Centre support from live cybersecurity analysts and elite threat hunters, supported via automated disruptions with proactive security network effects delivered by eSentire Atlas. Australian and New Zealand enterprises will also benefit from security operations leadership to drive analysis, investigation and complete response to security events.

“By embedding eSentire services and technology into their go-to-market strategy, Tecala will act as an extension of our security team, enabling us to expand our global footprint and provide our award-winning MDR solution to enterprises in Australia and New Zealand,” says eSentire chief channel officer Bob Layton.

“We remain relentless in our drive to bring innovation to the industry, allowing our partners to increase their competitive advantage through a proven, highly scalable MDR service that provides the highest security efficacy in the business.

“We look forward to serving as a trusted partner of Tecala and its customers.
