InSecurity Podcast: Bob Keblusek and Rick Spatafore on Trust and Managed Services

With a customer base striped across Education, Finance, Healthcare, Manufacturing and Government, it’s fair to say that Sentinel Technologies has a lot of fingers in a lot of pies.

They have been in business for over 35 years, with over 500 employees, 50+ company certifications, and over 2400 individual certifications with industry pillars including EMC, VMware and NetApp. No doubt they have been around more than a few blocks and solved a myriad of different security problems for their clients.

In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, Sentinel’s CTO Bob Keblusek and Strategic Advisor for Security and Healthcare Rick Spatafore sit down with Matt Stephenson and Edward Preston. They discuss the growing role of managed services and what it takes to foster the level of trust required for organizations to relinquish critical security aspects of their security operations to a third-party.
