Groupware Technology Promotes Paul Siri to Practice Manager of Security Solutions
March 26, 2019
Campbell, CA (March 26, 2019) – Groupware Technology, Inc., a leading IT solutions provider announced that Paul Siri has been promoted to Practice Manager of Security Solutions.
In his new position, Paul will report directly to VP of Engineering Vinay Prabhu and be responsible for growing Groupware’s security practice and solutions portfolio. In his 4-year tenure since he joined Groupware in February 2015 as a Junior Engineer/Data Center Technician, Paul has risen rapidly in the engineering ranks. He has received promotions to Internal Support Engineer, Network Engineer, Senior Consultant for Networking & Cyber Security and most recently, Security Team Lead.
Among his notable achievements at Groupware include spearheading the company’s “Infrastructure Automation” initiative and designing flexible Ansible, Terraform and cloud-native automation solutions. He has also tested, validated and deployed automated Security Transit VPC solutions, “Security Services” VPCs, and bleeding-edge integrations with cloud-native solutions such as the AWS Transit Gateway.
Paul holds over 80 certifications in technical categories from routing and switching to cloud automation and network security from a range of tech leaders such as Cisco, Dell EMC, HP, Oracle, Palo Alto Networks and Red Hat. He holds a BS in Computer Electronics and Network Technology from San Jose State University.
The era of digital transformation requires organizations to be vigilant in stepping up their security processes to protect infrastructures. According to the online statistics portal Statista, in the last 13 years, over 446.5 million records in the US have been exposed due to data breaches. Over half of US companies have reported being hit with malicious insiders—a type of cyberattack that takes longer to be solved, at an average of 68.9 days. The business sector has been the most affected by data breaches, accounting for over 90 percent of all exposed records in 2017.
“Paul is a truly unique and special engineering talent. I have the utmost confidence he will hit the ground running to raise the profile of our security practice and lead the charge to provide the sophisticated security solutions our customers demand in the digital era,” said Vinay Prabhu, Groupware’s VP of Engineering.
