BlueVoyant Acquires Managed Sentinel To Create End-to-End Services Portfolio For Microsoft Security Technologies

– Acquisition strengthens BlueVoyant’s ability to serve Microsoft customers; Managed Sentinel will continue to focus on deployment of Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender, bolstered by BlueVoyant’s MDR capabilities.

BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity services company, today announced that it has acquired Managed Sentinel, a global leader in deployment and management of Microsoft’s cloud-native SIEM, Azure Sentinel and Microsoft’s XDR platform, Microsoft Defender.

Organizations are increasingly looking for cloud-native security solutions. With the shift towards Extended Detection and Response (XDR) as customers demand more response capabilities beyond endpoint, as well as the drive to consolidate vendors and service providers, the acquisition of Managed Sentinel complements BlueVoyant’s managed detection and response (MDR) for Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender.

Working alongside BlueVoyant, Managed Sentinel strengthens BlueVoyant’s ability to better serve Microsoft customers globally, while enabling Managed Sentinel to leverage BlueVoyant’s threat intelligence and MDR capabilities. This allows both BlueVoyant and Managed Sentinel to deliver full-service offerings around Microsoft security technologies, from customized deployments to 24/7 Security Operations.

“The Microsoft partner ecosystem has hundreds of organizations that can implement and transact Microsoft technologies, but very few have security expertise. Managed Sentinel possesses world-class expertise and is a leading Azure Sentinel deployment provider, having served clients all over the world,” said Milan Patel, Global Head of Managed Security Services (MSS) at BlueVoyant. “Combining Managed Sentinel’s Azure Sentinel deployment expertise with BlueVoyant’s MDR capabilities will help customers operationalize and maximize Microsoft security technologies to realize the true business value of adopting cybersecurity through a managed service model.”

Jim Rosenthal, CEO of BlueVoyant, said: “We are very excited that Managed Sentinel’s Microsoft expertise and BlueVoyant’s industry-leading capabilities will continue to consolidate a position of excellence in the market.”

Marius Mocanu, CEO of Managed Sentinel, adds, “The acquisition of Managed Sentinel by BlueVoyant, combines our Azure Security expertise with BlueVoyant’s incredible proprietary threat intelligence and Managed Security Services, enabling customers to receive an enhanced solution which reduces operational and infrastructure costs.”

Founded in 2019 by Marius Mocanu and Adrian Grigorof in Canada, Managed Sentinel has best-in-class experience in deploying hybrid infrastructures, and integrating on-premise, private and public cloud security controls. As a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, Managed Sentinel has established a close working relationship with Microsoft and earned the highest standards of Microsoft’s widely recognized partnership.

BlueVoyant MDR provides real-time and customized threat response and remediation – terminating malicious processes, isolating devices, and manually preventing persistence and lateral movement associated with sophisticated attacks. BlueVoyant incorporates client-driven rules of engagement (ROE) enabling immediate, decisive action to stop threats that could cripple a network versus non-critical events where a lower-tiered response may be appropriate. Microsoft Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender allows BlueVoyant MDR to gain unparalleled and integrated visibility and response across endpoints, identities, e-mail, and cloud workloads.

In addition to addressing current industry trends driven by mandates to comply with regulatory and data protection laws, sophisticated attacks and budget constraints, the new MDR service will support businesses through their cloud digital transformation initiatives, focussing on a more proactive approach to security, with a faster-to-deploy solution, as more enterprises migrate to perimeter-less security.

“Security is so important to us and our clients, even more so now given the increasingly digital nature of how we work. Moving to an MDR service with our long term security partner ITC will help us step up to the next level of protection in this ever challenging area, and I’m really excited to see the results start to bear fruit for us,” said Orlando Milford, CIO, Oxera Consulting LLP.

The launch is the next phase of the journey as ITC continues to enhance its portfolio of services based on the Microsoft security stack, with the MDR service expanding on ITC’s existing managed Sentinel SIEM service.

Delivered and managed from ITC’s London-based, Security Operations Centre, the new service leverages Microsoft’s Defender for Endpoint (previously known as Defender Advanced Threat Protection) and the cloud-native SIEM tool, Azure Sentinel.

  • 24x7x365 SOC management, detection and response
