The article includes insights from several members of the Entara team, including Pamela Diaz, CEO, Raum Sandoval, CISO, and Michael Brunetti, Director of Professional Services, and reviews the history of Entara as well as what is ahead in 2023 for the organization.
The article discussed the growth of Entara's service offerings since its inception in 2001, including their evolution to an eXtended Service Provider (XSP). Further, it described Entara’s commitment to its incident response practice and the lessons that the team has learned from performing thousands of hours of remediation work every week. According to Brunetti, “In 2020, Entara worked on its first incident response project. This was a turning point for our organization as we learned more about the root causes of cyberattacks and correlating best practices to avoid being a target of one of these attacks.”
When looking ahead to 2023, the article commented on Entara’s prediction that cyber security will continue to increase in importance and become nonnegotiable for small businesses and enterprises alike. Entara anticipates more mature security solutions taking a more prominent role in 2023. “There will be increased demand for solutions such as microsegmentation, user awareness training, risk-based vulnerability management, zero trust solutions, and vCISO services,” said Diaz. “In order to meet the demands of cyber security talent, many businesses will continue to outsource to security professional services to ensure the best possible outcomes.”
The article concludes with a focus on the importance of collaborative partnerships between service providers and their clients and how, as an XSP, Entara can be a single, comprehensive partner for its clients. As summarized by Sandoval, “As the single vendor for our clients’ IT and security needs, we provide centralized accountability and a more efficient technology service.”
