Kelly Communication Systems Launches Branded Managed Security Division
Sentribit Delivers Real-Time Analytics and Data Security Intelligence

June 18, 2018 (Mountainside, NJ) – For the cybersecurity industry – valued at more than $75 billion globally and forecast to grow to $170 billion in 2020 – there’s a pressing need to leave the work “to the experts.” That’s because data breaches are increasingly common, costing businesses more than $3.6 million per breach. And, only a group of dedicated team members with the best tools in place can handle the volume and magnitude to counteract today’s incoming threats instead overwhelming a smaller in-house team – provided the company in question even has such a department.

Recognizing this need and to best serve its customers, Kelly Communication Systems, an independent solutions provider of IT centered products, consulting, and support services, announced that it has officially launched Sentribit, its branded managed security solutions division, to handle the cybersecurity needs of businesses across the New York metropolitan area. Sentribit will provide small and large companies alike with complete visibility, around-the-clock monitoring, timely prevention, and prompt remediation if and when an attack occurs.

“As a leader in the IT space for more than 30 years, Kelly Communication Systems has provided technology solutions that have enhanced and protected data centers and remote IT offices around the world, and we are excited to be adding this new branded addition to our company,” said Matt Kaveney, President of Kelly Communications Systems. “I’m fully confident that Sentribit will go a long way toward helping keep businesses of all sizes safe no matter the increasingly sophisticated cyber threats they face.”

Key to Sentribit’s offerings will be its Security Operations Management solution featuring a U.S.-based Security Operations Center (SOC). Fully staffed with experienced security analysts and engineers, the SOC will act as a 24/7/365 central command to support businesses with data security monitoring and on-call incident response. In addition, Sentribit’s Managed SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) software will monitor for potential risks, investigate anomalies in the client’s infrastructure and report any issues immediately with recommendations to contain and eliminate the threat.

Sentribit also concentrates on compliance monitoring and consulting – a reality every industry must face. For years, KCS has worked with Fortune 1000 clients to ensure they meet specific industry and government compliance standards; cybersecurity is no different. As such, Sentribit has taken that knowledge to ensure a company’s risk management process is fully automated with network security compliance monitoring and reporting. The company’s solution focuses on, but is not limited to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), NYS Department of Financial Services, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and the Sarbanes–Oxley Act.

“Too often, the need for such a third-party managed security provider becomes all too clear – only after a data breach has occurred,” Kaveney added. “And, in those instances, time is critical. Even larger companies sometimes lack the internal resources to handle a data breach of any magnitude. It’s also a costly endeavor to hire in-house professionals and build the tools to keep a watchful eye at all hours of the day and night. It’s what sets Sentribit apart.”
