Company adds Mike Hall as senior network engineer to help businesses protect their brand, reputation, and assets from security threats
BEND, Ore., October 10, 2017 – Redhawk Network Security, a provider of information security, network, and managed security services, announced the expansion of its engineering team to support the increasing demand for outsourced cybersecurity. Mike Hall joins Redhawk Network Security as senior network engineer. With more than 20 years of security and networking experience, as well as CCNP and CCNP-Security certifications, Mike brings extensive knowledge of network design, firewall design, network administration, disaster recovery planning, VPN configuration, and network planning and design—critical in today’s threat-filled business world.
Security threats—malware, ransomware, lost laptops, even aging computers—can put organizations and customers’ sensitive information at risk, which can significantly impact organizations through customer loss, diminished trust in brand, and regulatory fines. It is no longer enough to simply install anti-virus software and hide the network behind a firewall. A strong security posture needs security expertise in the entire IT infrastructure, with deep knowledge of an evolving and increasingly complex threat landscape, and an understanding of regulatory compliance. An integrated security foundation is critical for organizations’ reputation and longevity.
Mike Hall’s background brings a breadth of knowledge and expertise to Redhawk and its customers, especially in highly regulated industries including healthcare and banking. Prior to Redhawk, Mike worked at Cerium Networks as a senior network engineer, where he led wireless design, installation, and surveying. As a senior consultant at ConvergeOne, Mike designed and implemented data center and security projects for customers in the financial and public sector. Mike’s experience also includes senior network engineering at Oregon Community Health Information Network’s (OCHIN) and Umpqua Bank. He has also managed network consulting projects for Fortune 1000 companies including Xerox, Nike, and Hewlett Packard.
“We work hand-in-hand with companies of all sizes to help with their security needs—whether they need a little help or whether they need full-service management of their network activity, we combine the best-of-breed tools in the industry with highly experienced experts, steeped in security and IT,” said Kerri Fry, president of Redhawk Network Security. “Our people are our greatest asset and Mike Hall lends extensive expertise in network design and network management.”
