UiPath and eSentire Partnership the First to Bring End-to-End Hyperautomation to Cybersecurity

UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, and eSentire, a leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver the first of its kind end-to-end security policy automation across multiple Microsoft Security services.

Marrying the power of the UiPath end-to-end platform for hyperautomation with eSentire's MDR service further accelerates the speed at which eSentire stops cyberthreats for its customers. As the complexity and scale of cyberattacks grow, hyperautomation levels the playing field by reducing the volume of threats that require human intervention and enabling faster prevention, allowing security teams to focus on the more evasive and malicious threats. The solution is available to try now.

The eSentire MDR service is delivered from Atlas, a proprietary extended detection and response (XDR) platform purpose-built on cloud-native architecture, enabling end-to-end proactive security. Utilizing patented AI technologies, Atlas learns from expert SOC investigations and responses across eSentire's global customer base, quickly extending protection to every customer with each specific detection. This ability to rapidly learn and work at cloud scale, combined with expert human actions, stops breaches and reduces customer risk.

From native integration with UiPath robots, the Atlas platform through the new Cloud Automation Security Assistant now automates security policy creation, configuration, and updates for non-API accessible Microsoft services to replace the traditionally repetitive and error-prone manual work.

"The Cloud Automation Security Assistant combined with the UiPath platform for hyperautomation is a gamechanger for how we manage our Microsoft Cloud Application Security policies," said Chris Pace, CEO, Centre Technologies. "With cyberattacks increasingly frequent with greater negative impact, attack automation is driving a lot of attack volume. Responding to these cyberattacks requires responsiveness and scale. This integration is very effective in dramatically reducing human time, while improving scale, repeatability, resiliency, and accuracy."

"The need for intelligent understanding and action on large scale security data is becoming an integral part of every organization's cybersecurity roadmap. Combining the intelligence of our Atlas XDR platform with UiPath RPA capabilities for Microsoft Security is only the beginning of what we will deliver to our customers with UiPath," said Kerry Bailey, Chief Executive Officer, eSentire. "Our customers rely on us for leading-edge MDR solutions that provide the highest security efficacy and their peace of mind is our top priority. Through our partnership with UiPath, we are providing leading technologies to stop threats day in and day out, around the clock."

According to Gartner's 2020 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services, Gartner anticipates that "by 2025, 50 percent of organizations will be using MDR services for threat monitoring, detection, and response functions that offer threat containment capabilities." The firm also named hyperautomation as its number one trend on Gartner's list of Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020. Hyperautomation brings together several components of process automation, integrating tools and technologies that amplify the ability to automate work. It starts with RPA at its core, and expands automation capability with AI, process mining, analytics, and other advanced tools.  

Param Kahlon, UiPath Chief Product Officer commented: "Without automation, security teams have to deal with an increasing number of security alerts and potential incidents that require many hours of their valuable time to resolve. And because there are too many false positives, that time ends up being spent in vain. By combining our leading hyperautomation platform with the industry's premier cloud-native MDR security platform, companies can now fully unlock enterprise-grade automation and worker productivity while better predicting behaviors and executing security protections faster and more effectively."
