)-- Entech, a IT managed service provider (MSP) based in southwest Florida, announced today that Chris Brenes, its director of IT and Security, recently completed the requirements to earn a Certified Ethical Hacking (CEH) certification. This certification allows information security professionals to help a business defend itself against attacks by malicious hackers.
The CEH certification is administered by the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council, www.eccouncil.org). According to the council’s website, “A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.”
“This designation is an extremely important value-add to Entech’s technical expertise,” notes Buddy Martin, Entech’s chief operating officer. “We plan to use Chris’s knowledge to further develop our IT security solution and security best practices for the benefit of our managed service contract clients.”
Brenes holds multiple security certifications, including the (ISC2) (www.isc2.org) Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification and the CompTIA (www.comptia.org) Security+ certification.
