Sentinel CTO: 6 Huge Security Bets On Cisco, SASE And Cloud
From Cisco and public cloud to SASE, Sentinel Technologies CTO Bob Keblusek tells CRN where his company is placing its cybersecurity investments to drive security sales.
SASE From Palo Alto Networks And Zscaler
Sentinel offers a slew of security products and SASE offerings in its SOC from Zscaler and Palo Alto Networks.
Specifically, Sentinel is betting on Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma cloud-based security package which includes advanced threat protection, user behavior monitoring, access control and other cybersecurity services. Palo Alto Networks dubs Prisma as the industry’s only comprehensive cloud-native security platform.
Another key SASE benefit from Palo Alto Networks came in 2020, with the acquisition of SD-WAN standout CloudGenix. “Palo Alto invests pretty heavily in their products around cloud security from Prisma. They also bought CloudGenix who had one of the leading SD-WAN products. So they’ve made some really good investments,” said Keblusek.
Another cloud security vendor that is receiving good market traction is Zscaler. The company’s Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access aims to create fast, secure connections between users and applications, regardless of device, location or network.
“Zscaler works with many different manufacturers with some native integrations, and they’ve had really strong market presence,” Keblusek said.
