IT Security Specialist Sentor Launches in the U.S. With ScrapeSentry, Anti-Scraping Service

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Leading European IT managed security services and anti-scraping solutions provider, Sentor, is continuing its international expansion by opening a U.S. office. The new office, located in Boston MA, will be managed by Gus Cunningham, who joins Sentor after six years as Chief Operating Officer with global DDoS mitigation firm Prolexic Technologies.

The new office will offer North American clients the highest levels of support and technical excellence in Managed Security Services, as well giving them access to ScrapeSentry, the leading anti-scraping solution.

Martin Zetterlund, Chief Operating Officer at Sentor, explains: "In one sense we are already a global company, as we have many existing international clients and have always offered around the clock service to all our clients, wherever their location. Opening an office now allows us to better meet the needs of the U.S. market and the increasing number of U.S.-based clients asking to work with us. "

As the first company to identify, define and develop a complete solution for web scraping, Sentor has been at the forefront of online security in Europe for the past 15 years.

Commenting on the opening, Gus Cunningham, USA Regional Manager, said, " We know the expectations of the North American region are high. Sentor has already signed some of the largest U.S.-based online brands, and it is now the right time to fully establish a local Sentor presence. We know there's a very high level of interest in our ScrapeSentry service and we look forward to adding to our U.S. client base in the forthcoming months."

Gus Cunningham concluded, "Like DDoS mitigation five or ten years ago, most companies either ignore the problem or get a false sense of security, believing that their existing technologies will handle the issue. But scrapers, adapt their techniques to work around those barriers. The hard truth is that to eliminate scraping you need a tremendous amount of processing power, analysis, and 24/7 skilled operators to stay ahead of the scrapers. Java script injection, rate limiting, CAPTCHAs, and geo blocking just don't cut it today."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
