IOSi Gains ConnectWise Fortify Security Certification

All of IOSi's technical staff trained hard during the month of December to obtain their security certification for ConnectWise Fortify which employs SentinalOne's Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) software.



When Steve Ellis was asked how he could ensure that his client systems were protected with antivirus (AV) alone by North America's largest IT Professional Services Automation (PSA) tool provider he had this to say, "As we go into 2021, we simply cannot ensure that end-users are protected from phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks using traditional antivirus alone.  Traditional AV depends on virus signatures which are updated daily and hourly in some cases, but become stale very quickly and do not provide complete protection.  EDR software protection doesn't just look at individual files on a system, but correlates and pieces the usage of these files together with other executables on a client system and checks if their combined usage is normal or safe.  It's the next layer in system protection and a game changer for overall client security".
