Sentinel Technologies Achieves AWS Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider Competency Status

Wed January 11, 2023

Downers Grove, IL (January 11th, 2023) – Sentinel Technologies, Always Leading, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Competency status. This designation recognizes that Sentinel has successfully met AWS’s requirements for a baseline of managed security services to protect and monitor essential AWS resources 24/7, known as Level 1 Managed Security Services. This new baseline standard of quality for managed security services was introduced by AWS to benefit cloud environments of any size and it spans six security domains: vulnerability management, cloud security best practices and compliance, threat detection and response, network security, host and endpoint security, and application security. The six domains contain multiple MSSP services, each with technical skillset and operational process requirements specific to AWS.

AWS launched the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency to enable customers to easily acquire ongoing security monitoring and management, validated by AWS. AWS security experts annually validate the tools used and operational processes of each MSSP address specific cloud security challenges such as continuous event monitoring, triaging, AWS service configuration best practices, and 24/7 incident response. The AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency provides a faster and easier experience for customers to select the right MSSP to help them achieve their goals for business risk and cloud strategy confidence.

Achieving the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency differentiates Sentinel as an MSSP and AWS Partner with essential 24/7 managed cloud security skillsets to earn the distinction of Level 1 MSSP.

“Sentinel Technologies is proud to be one of the first AWS Partners to achieve AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency status,” said Michael Soule, National Director, Cloud. “Our team provides leading consulting services on AWS' breadth of offerings and incredible pace of innovation, helping our customers to achieve their business transformation goals.

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

"At Fortis by Sentinel we are always advancing our customers protection and achieving our AWS MSSP competency is great recognition of our accomplishments.  We look forward to continuing our work with AWS to protect our mutual customers from the ever-changing threat landscape with our Fortis Advisory, ActiveDefense  and ActiveRecovery  services,” said Robert Keblusek, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer at Sentinel Technologies.
