Today’s MSSP Alert Market News:

1. MDR Integration: ESET, a digital security specialist, has announced a new integration with Arctic Wolf, a managed detection and response (MDR) provider, to ensure increased visibility and protection against cyber threats. By integrating ESET Inspect into Arctic Wolf's Security Operations Platform, Arctic Wolf customers are able to enhance their security posture, aggregating vast amounts of data from diverse, global sources. "The new ESET PROTECT Platform API allows ESET Inspect data to seamlessly integrate with the Arctic Wolf Platform, that when combined with the telemetry from other security tools, ensure Arctic Wolf customers get holistic protection against an ever-evolving threat landscape," said Ian McShane, Arctic Wolf's MDR vice president.

2. Security Partnership: Stellar Cyber, an Open XDR specialist, has formed a new partnership with Acronis, a cybersecurity and data protection company, to deliver a threat detection and response solution enabling MSPs to protect on-premises, cloud, hybrid and IT/OT environments. Stellar Cyber and Acronis aim to help organizations protect themselves from advanced cyberattacks by removing artificial obstacles that make it difficult for security teams to identify and mitigate threats effectively, the companies said.

3. DDoS Product Launch: Lightpath, an infrastructure-based connectivity provider, has launched LP DDoS Shield, its next-generation network safeguard against a growing list of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack types.

The solution enables prompt detection of suspicious activities around data across the Microsoft 365 environment, Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), as well as Active Directory and file servers, the company said.

5. Ransomware Protection Offer: Align, a provider of technology infrastructure solutions and managed IT services, has added a new ransomware prevention feature to its Align Guardian Managed Detection and Response offering powered by Adlumin. This solution is designed to detect and halt ransomware in its tracks, safeguarding files from encryption, the company said.

6. Leadership Move: Dataminr, an AI-powered threat detection provider, has appointed cybersecurity veteran Brian Gumbel as president and CEO.

Funding Round: Evolution Equity Partners announced the closing of Evolution Technology Fund III, with total capital commitments of $1.1 billion to back visionary entrepreneurs building next generation cybersecurity companies. The capital commitment includes funding from British Patient Capital, the UK's largest domestic investor in venture and venture growth opportunities and a subsidiary of the British Business Bank.

8. Public Safety Security Launch: RedSense, a cyber threat intelligence company, has launched its Public Sector Safety Shield Solution, which enables state and regional cyber command centers to secure smaller public entities like municipalities, schools and healthcare providers. This cybersecurity solution allows these command centers to oversee protection without requiring specialist teams, new hardware or software, the company said.

9. Women in Cyber Research: ISC2, a nonprofit member organization for cybersecurity professionals, has published its Women in Cybersecurity research. Among respondents in the "under 30" age category, 26% identified as women, while only 13% of respondents in the "65 or older" age category were women. By 2025, research predicts that women will represent 30% of the global cybersecurity workforce, increasing to 35% by 2031, the study said.
