VENZA now offers IT Security Managed Services at its new Security Operations Center at three West Garden Street in downtown Pensacola, Florida. With an official ribbon-cutting event scheduled for February, the MSP division employs a full-time staff both locally as well as in remote locations securing the hospitality industry 24/7/365.
Pensacola was a top choice for VENZA because of its municipal investments in the high-tech economy, a large cluster of IT companies, a talent pool consisting of many military veterans and the fact that it has some of Florida’s best beaches was an added plus. Together, these factors make it the perfect place to build a team. “Being a veteran and having grown up there, I know Pensacola has the technology infrastructure and talent base to launch this new division quickly,” said David Christiansen, CIO of VENZA.
In hospitality today, a commitment to security is central to all intelligent IT initiatives. VENZA MSP aims to be the hospitality industry’s virtual CIO/ISO. Along with ensuring that your network is properly monitored and managed, VENZA MSP delivers the tools and resources necessary to deliver security. Our logging, monitoring and incident response program focuses on keeping data secure while satisfying standards (ISO/IEC 27001) and compliance requirements (PCI DSS, GDPR) implementing a layered security approach to ensure best practices for data integrity. Services include remote monitoring/management (24/7/365), patch management, next-generation endpoint protection, firewall management, disaster recovery encrypted backup, automated threat monitoring, vulnerability scanning (internal/external), remote access management, help desk support, mail protection/archiving and security information event management (SIEM). In addition, our new Third Wall product allows VENZA to set policies and procedures to establish “best practices” with built-in intelligence that is constantly searching for ransomware activity with counteractive measures that are put in place when malicious activity is detected. So, sit back, we’ve got you covered; our help desk security agents are only an email or a phone call away should a need arise.
“Locating this new division in Florida keeps us closer to our core business within hospitality,” said Josh Bergen, President of VENZA. “Being in Pensacola will allow us to tap into the local military, college and tech hub while delivering the best security solutions to our clients in such a beautiful location,” said Bergen. VENZA has hired new team members, such as IT Specialists and Vulnerability Scanning Engineers.
