Entisys360 Doubles Down on Cybersecurity; Invests in New Services OfferingsJanuary 13, 2020
Entisys360, an award-winning IT consultancy specializing in the deployment and delivery of advanced IT infrastructure, virtualization, security, automation and cloud first solutions, today announced that is has purchased Performance Technology Partner’s (PTP) cybersecurity technology and support solutions assets.
Inclusive of security and compliance assessments, as well as staff augmentation services delivered by a highly-skilled team offering decades of collective experience in cybersecurity, the PTP technology and services offering being purchased by Entisys360 will help the company establish itself as one of the West Coast’s leading providers of cybersecurity services. Entisys360 soon plans to leverage the assets being purchased from PTP to create a separate and unique entity focused on the delivery of cybersecurity services.
“Cybersecurity is top of mind for everyone today – businesses and consumers, alike,” said Mike Strohl, CEO, Entisys360. “VARs and solution providers that do not make a formal commitment to cybersecurity will not be able to drive a sustainable business model and stay ahead of the curve. It is that mindset which has driven us to grow our business by accelerating our commitment to meeting our clients’ most important business needs and requirements – especially where cybersecurity and compliance are concerned. Through our investment in PTP’s security services assets, we are fully demonstrating our commitment to a ‘security-first’ mindset that will bring true value to our clients in everything we do – starting from the ground up with our SOWs.”
Ron Hamilton, CISO, Entisys360, adds, “The PTP team is very excited to become part of a fully-operational and comprehensive cybersecurity services consulting practice at Entisys360. Our ability to provide staff augmentation and a comprehensive set of cybersecurity services to our clients will be especially beneficial given the overall staff shortages across the industry. Recently, The International Information System Security Certification Consortium, or (ISC)², reported that there were 2.93 million cybersecurity positions open and unfilled around the world. This statistic alone demonstrates both the value and opportunity in helping enterprises bolster their security organizations with temporary or permanent staff that includes CISO-level talent.
With the purchase of PTP’s security technology and support solutions portfolio, Entisys360 clients will also benefit from proven processes and methodologies which allow for the detection of a wide variety of cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. Among these offerings are Gap Assessments/Compliance Assessments; Staff Augmentation; Network Pen Testing; Application Security Assessments; Cybersecurity Program Development and Policy; and, PCI-DSS Assessments. “It is important to note that we are the only firm with more than 21 years of experience in conducting application security assessments,” added Hamilton. “We were on the cutting edge of creating these types of assessments, it is one of our key competitive differentiators and one we are very proud of.”
