Sentry Agent: The Wizard in Control
In order for a comprehensive security management solution to be proactive, it has to be reactive. Sentry Agent delivers that power, and is responsible for 3 things:
- receiving system requests
- sending those requests to the appropriate layer to be carried out
- reporting the results
Commands are sent from our dashboard, to our servers, and finally, to the system. Agent then takes the command and sends it to the appropriate layer to be carried out. The layer then reports back to Agent, who relays the info back to us via our dashboard or even an email or SMS alert.
Sentry Agent is one of the most powerful layers of our security stack, and allows Sentry to provide three essential processes: system and health monitoring, reporting and alerting.
Cross-Platform Health Monitoring
When it comes to technology, knowledge is power. Sentry utilizes a proactive system of automated checks that may be set up to run daily, or at intervals of five, fifteen, thirty, sixty or one hundred and twenty minutes.
Agent’s cross-platform design allows customized scans and checks to be configured and delivered across Windows servers and workstations, OS X workstations, Linux servers and even mobile devices.
Standard checks include:
– web page
– backup failure
– disk space
– physical disk health
– critical events
– bandwidth monitoring
– failed log-ins
Agent can create custom reports about just about anything on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, including:
– server fault history
– comprehensive backup checks
– performance monitoring
– software licenses
– antivirus threat, protection and quarantine
– web protection
Notifications are fundamental to any complete IT solution, allowing support to catch possible issues early. Sentry uses proactive email and SMS alerts to notify our techs when a problem is detected. Minimizing the time between symptom and treatment maximizes our ability to respond early.
The Sentry Model
Comprehensive security management must cover a wide scope of services to be successful. Sentry Business Solutions does just that, starting with a complete needs assessment of business workstations and servers.
Once needs are assessed, a set of security layers are deployed and Sentry does the rest. Able to deploy up to 8 layers of security on Windows, Mac or Linux devices, Sentry uses data-driven insights to proactively alert technicians when problems are detected.
Sentry’s layered security model combines multiple processes to protect resources and data. Each layer is responsible for stopping threats at a specific stage of exposure. Threats must find a hole in each layer in order to breach the entire system.
