XentIT is a full service IT firm specialising in information security, governance, risk and compliance, cloud technology, and managed IT services for commercial enterprises and government agencies. Founded in 2006, XentIT has a successful track record in understanding its clients’ business objectives and pain points to determine and implement the right technology solution. Clients include one of the world’s largest law firms, one of the largest US banks, one of world’s largest HR software and services firms, the US State Department, NASA, US Department of Justice, one of the largest hospitals in the southeast, and the US Library of Congress.
Since XentIT’s clients are recognised globally, they represent a tempting target for cyberattacks, especially as these organisations move more applications and data to the cloud. Among today’s growing threats are ransomware (cyber extortion) and covert, targeted attacks using advanced techniques. These can wreak havoc on a company’s IT systems, up to and including shutting them down until resolution. In highly regulated industries, such as government agencies and corporate enterprises in industries such as finance and healthcare, this can be especially burdensome as these organisations are required to meet stringent compliance regulations concerning their data security.
While its government clients typically respond quickly to the spectrum of global cyber threats, XentIT’s enterprise clients can be reluctant to confront security vulnerabilities if it means impacting their bottom line. That’s where XentIT’s years of experience come in.
“Today’s headlines are led with stories about security breaches, so the C-Suite needs to view security as a strategic asset that protects their valuable IP and business assets rather than simply an expense item on the balance sheet,”
Founder and President of XentIT.
Before founding XentIT a decade ago, Alvi implemented ERP systems for large enterprises. It was here that he was first introduced to Trend Micro. He was particularly impressed with the comprehensive, end-to-end security capabilities of Trend Micro solutions. In fact, when Alvi started XentIT, Trend Micro became his first software partner.
“One solution — Trend’s unique Smart Protection Network, the global threat intelligence — that powers all of their solutions — end points, physical and virtual servers, web portals, email, network intrusion, and behavior analysis. That is a very compelling selling point.”

Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ and Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ are XentlT’s flagship security solutions—and with good reason. As businesses and organisations shift more of their critical assets to the cloud, Deep Security™ offers them a highly scalable, automated solution that gives these organisations the added security they require.
What’s more, as the popularity of virtualisation increased, and then cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services℠ (AWS), XentIT needed a solution that could deliver security for all environments – physical, virtual and cloud.
The Trend Micro Smart Protection Network powers all security solutions, including Deep Discovery™, which allows XentIT to create custom defence solutions to detect, analyse, and respond to ransomware, advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks in real time for their clients.
In addition, for clients in highly regulated industries, like government and healthcare, Deep Security includes a number of key reporting features that can be essential when undergoing federally mandated security audits. It also allows security features to be implemented in a phased, gradual manner by turning its modules on or off as needed.
