Sentinel wants to help ensure your organization has the right technology solutions and procedures in place to remain secure, quickly recover from a disaster or attack, and enhance employees’ ability to communicate and collaborate with one another. We offer a number of different workshops intended to provide insights and analysis into various aspects of your IT environment so you can make improvements and solidify a path to sustained growth and innovation. A majority of these workshops are completely free of charge, can be conducted virtually, and take only a couple of hours to complete.
Security should always start with zero trust - assume no one is trusted to access your network. Sentinel's Zero Trust Workshop assists customers in identifying their highest areas of risk for workplace, workforce, and workload. We approach your systems from the standpoint of an untrusted user/device and uncover any gaps within your security infrastructure in order to mitigate such risks. Sentinel's strategic advisors then work with you to help harden your systems as quickly as possible.
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) framework provides a comprehensive approach to protecting critical portions of your infrastructure using established standards and guidelines. It emphasizes a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, and cost-effective way for organizations to manage their risk. Sentinel's NIST Workshop analyzes your organization's alignment with these cybersecurity standards as they relate to your people, processes, and technology. If any gaps or potentially vulnerable areas are discovered, the Sentinel team can help guide you back into alignment.
As more employees work from home and more organizations shift portions of their IT environment into the cloud, it has become more important than ever to carefully manage and protect your network perimeter. Sentinel's SASE Workshop (Secure Access Service Edge) aims to help your organization figure out the best path to SASE adoption using your existing network and security technologies. It can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of your environment while prioritizing user safety and accessibility.
As cyber criminals continue to use phishing and brute force password attacks as methods of gaining access to your secure systems and sensitive data, there are several tactics and solutions your organization can deploy to help keep employees and information safe. Sentinel's Identity Workshop reviews the ways users access your systems and data, then offers innovative ideas designed to improve both security and the user experience. Change the way people log in with things like rule-based access controls, impossible-to-guess passwords, and multi-factor authentication.
The public cloud provides a number of advantages to organizations, including easier scalability, faster development/deployment of new technologies, enhanced security, and lower costs. While it may be relatively simple to use and manage once deployed, properly integrating and optimizing it within your environment comes with its own set of unique challenges. If your organization is preparing to start its public cloud journey or simply wants to ensure it’s getting the most from any public cloud investments, you should consider Sentinel’s Cloud Adoption Workshop. Our goal is to help identify any gaps or issues ahead of a cloud migration, and offer recommendations on ways to improve cloud performance in alignment with your business objectives.
If your organization struggles to maintain a fast and effective wide area network (WAN), it might be time to upgrade to the speed, convenience, scalability, and security offered by a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN). Sentinel's SD-WAN Readiness Workshop aims to prepare your organization for this transition so you can take full advantage of the many benefits that SD-WAN offers. We can help you increase bandwidth at lower costs, centralize the management of your network, improve visibility of the traffic on your network, and boost its overall security. Our experts will also provide guidance to align SD-WAN capabilities and investments with your business goals and future plans.
If your organization is forced to immediately shut down due to a cyber attack, pandemic, or some other disaster event, is there a comprehensive plan in place detailing everything that needs to be done to either continue or restore operations? You may think you're prepared for anything, but there may be unforeseen issues that could significantly affect your ability to function fully and securely in less than optimal conditions. Sentinel's Business Resilience Workshop examines several different areas of your organization to rapidly identify areas of risk within your business plans and provide guidance on ways to protect employees and critical systems should a disruption occur.
As more and more healthcare organizations conduct exams and patient appointments in the virtual space, it's become increasingly important to have a well-developed and easy-to-use Telehealth or Telemedicine program in place. Sentinel's Telehealth & Telemedicine Maturity Workshop provides a comprehensive review of your current posture and recommends ways to foster growth, improve security, and keep costs manageable. Even if you do not have any Telehealth / Telemedicine solutions in place yet, Sentinel can help dene a path forward no matter your size or maturity level.
Sentinel's in-house team of highly certified healthcare consultants offers a Strategic Alignment Workshop for organizations interested in optimizing their technology strategy and investments in order to overcome challenges and stimulate growth. This engagement includes a comprehensive analysis of organizational goals, future initiatives, and the role IT plays in helping you achieve them. A final report includes recommendations and data to empower your healthcare institution with a new outlook and a more streamlined approach moving forward.
The contact center continues to evolve as digital innovation and customer needs change. It has become more essential than ever for organizations to maintain an omni-channel customer service presence that includes phone, messaging, social media and more, so customers can reach you when, where, and however it's most convenient for them. The latest contact centers can also integrate self-service elements through bots/AI, make it easier and more efficient for agents to resolve customer inquiries, and generate insights or improvements using the data gathered from interactions. Sentinel's Contact Center Modernization Workshop examines your current contact center setup and offers guidance to enhance your current system or migrate to a new one that works better for both customers and agents.
Today's cloud-based collaboration solutions offer a wide variety of applications and features designed to enhance calling, messaging, file sharing, meetings, and overall communication with others. Sentinel's Cloud Collaboration Modernization Workshop aims to help your organization pinpoint the vendors and solutions best aligned with your unique collaboration needs. This strategic evaluation can bring focus to internal discussions and provide a path to future cloud and collaboration investments.
As many organizations adapt to an increasingly remote workforce, they are adopting platforms and applications to help employees stay connected and collaborate with one another outside of the office. Microsoft Teams enables users to call, chat, share, and meet in a virtual space from any location at any time. If your organization is considering adopting and deploying Teams, there are a number of factors to consider before jumping in. Sentinel’s MS Teams Readiness Workshop aims to identify any gaps or roadblocks you may encounter when attempting to integrate Microsoft Teams into your environment. This Q&A-style engagement examines planning, communication, governance, security, design, deployment, and support so you know exactly what to expect before starting this journey.
