Security is a Marathon, Not a Sprint 🏃

…..Couldn’t have said it better myself.

James DePietro (Jim) and I have been working together for over 2 years now. My team had to build credibility and earn his IT Directors’ respect when we were first brought on as a vendor… but that didn’t take long.

Jim’s team was having a problem, and after discussing it over the phone, I sent RedZone’s CTO, James Crifasi in.

James went in and fixed the problem in 3 SECONDS.  Jim and his team were shocked!

That’s the power of RedZone Technologies’ Co-Managed Security Services.

Gain Unified Visibility & Control Over Your Security

Security Complexity is rising and the Security Tooling magnifies the workload since security tools don’t talk to one another in an easy way.

You need specialized labor to manage all the products as you attempt to simplify and consolidate.
