Australian Startup Sentinus Vows to “Clean Up the Cloud”
PERTH, Australia, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The cloud can be a dangerous place for business. Launching today, Australian company Sentinus vows to clean up the cloud by exposing risky practices, and helping businesses choose the right vendor.
“We’re seeing a wealth of choices in cloud services,” says Director of Advisory Services, Damian Bramanis, “it’s like visiting a supermarket. The difference is, at the supermarket we’re protected with standards for food quality and labelling, but in the cloud it’s far too easy to end up with a rotten egg.”
While there are worldwide efforts to bring regulation and standards to cloud services, for many businesses they aren’t being developed fast enough. “People want to know two things,” says Damian Bramanis. “Is it safe, and am I allowed to use it? In many industries, policy and regulation doesn’t yet give a clear enough answer to either question.”
Two of today’s biggest cloud issues are quality of service and the risk to important business data. That’s why Sentinus has launched the Sentinus Toolkit. The toolkit is designed to help an organisation find a cloud vendor they can trust. It uses best-practice in cloud security, service quality and architecture to expose hidden weaknesses.
“Businesses don’t want to risk their reputation with a major failure,” says Bramanis, “but they do want to take advantage of the cloud right now. That’s where we come in.”
Founded in 2012, Sentinus Pty Ltd has a mission to help organisations keep their data safe in the cloud. The company provides information and services for IT professionals to get business value from the cloud, without all of the risk. Sentinus is a privately held company, headquartered in Perth, Western Australia.
