EY to offer next generation of Managed Detection and Response services

(Toronto, 13 September 2019) EY is pleased to announce today that ElevatedPrompt Solutions Inc. and its team have joined EY to offer Canadian clients unparalleled cyber threat detection and response services.

“Cyber attacks are increasing in persistence, sophistication and business impact,” says Yogen Appalraju, EY Canada Cybersecurity Leader. “Managed services are increasingly important as companies struggle to retain the talent or invest in evolving technology and processes needed to face off these attacks. ElevatedPrompt is a leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR) with advanced monitoring capabilities addressing not only Information Technology but also Operational Technology and Industrial Control Systems. Together, we’ll be able to offer clients the next generation of protection to safeguard what matters most to them.”

ElevatedPrompt combines next generation automation and orchestration, machine learning and an iterative product development approach. Team members join a network of over 6,000 EY cybersecurity practitioners connected in 150 countries providing a range of consulting, implementation and managed services.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our team to build on an already advanced Managed Detection and Response capability,” says Chandra Majumdar, former ElevatedPrompt Co-Founder & CTO and newly appointed EY Canada Cyber Threat Management Leader. “Joining EY means combining our team of innovative and agile thinkers with powerful local and global networks to deliver entirely new cybersecurity possibilities to companies in Canada and beyond.”

Appalraju adds: “As cyber threats evolve, so too are the needs of our clients. Welcoming the ElevatedPrompt team to the EY family is another commitment to our clients that we’re investing in their future.”
