Eze Castle Integration Enhances Cybersecurity Offering with Active Threat Protection Service Powered by eSentire
Eze Castle expands strategic partnership with eSentire to protect clients from data breaches and attacks
BOSTON – December 3, 2014 – Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of strategic IT solutions and private cloud services to the investment industry, today launched its Eze Active Threat Protection Service, powered by eSentire, Inc., a provider of managed cybersecurity solutions. Eze Active Threat Protection (ATP) offers Eze Castle customers an end-to-end service that allows hedge funds of any size to implement advanced cybersecurity protection and policies.
Eze Castle and eSentire have extended their partnership in order to better enable hedge funds and investment firms to mitigate cyber risk and maintain strict compliance given the SEC’s enhanced oversight of cyber -attacks and data breaches. Additionally, the new service supports both cloud-based infrastructures and those located on-site in firm offices, enabling customers to easily migrate workloads on and off the Eze Private Cloud safely and securely.
As part of the expanded service, Eze Castle’s customers can take advantage of the eSentire Asset Manager Protect (AMP) service, which actively shares threat intelligence across its subscriber base, so customers can immediately safeguard themselves against attacks and vulnerabilities of all kinds. In addition, Eze Castle is offering continuous monitoring, real-time threat detection and containment technology as a service with human threat analysts on a 24x7x365 basis, via the eSentire partnership.
“Data breaches and attacks are quickly becoming the norm and not the exception in today’s economy as hackers are continually finding vulnerabilities and costing companies lost time, resources and revenues – no one is immune to these threats,” said Bob Guilbert, managing director, Eze Castle Integration. “With Eze Active Threat Protection, our clients can have peace of mind knowing their data is secure whether hosted in the cloud or located in their office.”
J. Paul Hayes, CEO, eSentire, said, “Cyber attacks represent a clear and present danger. If you aren’t continuously looking for abnormal behavior on a 24x7 basis, you will never know it is happening until after the fact. And by then, the missing $1M is long gone, and beyond the reach of law enforcement. eSentire investigate situations like this all too often nowadays.” He went on to say, “With some of the largest financial services firms in the world with the industry’s best defenses, regularly reporting breaches, it should come as no surprise that doing nothing is irresponsible and that is why the regulators are increasing the scrutiny and making this an issue for hedge fund executives.”
