RPA provider UiPath and eSentire, provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced a strategic partnership to provide end-to-end automation of security services. Learning AI is used in this solution.
By combining UiPath software with eSentire’s MDR offering, cyber threats can be addressed faster. As the complexity and scale of cyber attacks increase, human intervention can no longer keep up. This requires extensive automation.
ESentire’s MDR service is delivered through Atlas, a proprietary Extended Detection and Response (XDR) platform purpose-built on cloud-native architecture, enabling end-to-end proactive protection. Leveraging proprietary AI technologies, Atlas learns from SOC investigations and responses across eSentire’s global customer base, quickly extending protection to any customer. This ability to learn quickly and operate on a cloud scale, combined with expert human action, stops attacks and reduces customer risk.
Cloud Automation Security Assistant
Native integration of UiPath robots with the Atlas platform in the new Cloud Automation Security Assistant automates the creation, configuration and updating of security policies for Microsoft services. This makes the traditionally repetitive and error-prone manual work unnecessary.
According to Gartner’s Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services 2020, Gartner expects that “By 2025, 50 percent of organizations will use MDR services to monitor, detect and respond to threats that provide threat mitigation capabilities.”
Peace of mind
Kerry Bailey, Chief Executive Officer, eSentire, commented: “The need for intelligent understanding and action for large-scale security data is becoming an integral part of any organization’s cybersecurity roadmap. Combining the intelligence of our Atlas XDR platform with UiPath RPA capabilities for Microsoft Security is just the beginning of what we can deliver to our customers with UiPath. Our customers rely on us for industry-leading MDR solutions that provide the highest security efficiency and their peace of mind is our top priority. Through our partnership with UiPath, we deliver industry-leading technologies to stop threats day after day, 24 hours a day. ”
Param Kahlon, Chief Product Officer of UiPath: Without automation, security teams face an increasing number of security alerts and potential incidents that take many hours of their precious time to resolve. And because there are too many false positives, that time is spent in vain. By combining our industry-leading platform with the industry’s leading cloud-native MDR security platform, companies can now fully unlock automation and employee productivity, while better predicting behavior and implementing security measures faster and more effectively. ”
