About Sentinel IPS
Network security isn’t just our business. It’s our passion.
The first iteration of Sentinel Intrusion Prevention Systems began in Dallas, Texas, in 1995, at the dawn of the World Wide Web. Although we started as web developers, we soon shifted our focus to network security, driven by the belief that everyone—and every sized company—has the fundamental right to be secure on the Internet. Small businesses, state and local government entities, and companies with lean IT departments that simply didn’t have the security expertise or the time to put one more thing on their already overflowing plates.
We couldn’t find an integrated solution that checked all the boxes, so, we assembled a team of innovators and developed our own.
Session Six12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
