Cloud24x7 is kicking off managed security services for channel partners in the Americas.
The global Managed Security Services Market is expected to reach US $100.88 Bn by 2026. Increasing complex security threats, cybercrime, shortage of skilled security professionals and 24×7 readiness required against advanced threats are few of the reasons organizations are moving towards managed security service providers. However, in spite of the huge demand, many channel partners are not able to provide managed security services to their customers. This is due to lack of infrastructure, tools, budget and skilled resources.
Cloud24x7 covers three major areas that help partners (VARs, LARs, MSPs) to grow their network security offerings:
Research from Gartner suggests that, by 2020, 99% of firewall breaches will be caused by simple firewall misconfigurations, not flaws. Cloud24x7 has designed a consultancy to ensure that firewalls are manually audited (100+ checks), bespoke reported and remediated by highly skilled network security experts, to ensure that security devices maintain the highest level of security posture and are fully compliant with industries best practices.
Cloud24x7 managed security services include Support, Secure and Secure Plus, and are designed to ensure smooth running of customer’s vital security systems and infrastructure while giving channel partners the freedom to focus on other areas of business.
Security experts at Cloud24x7 work round-the-clock with channel partners and their customers to protect, detect and mitigate latest information security threats that businesses face. Cloud24x7 security analysts are trained and experienced on all major security vendors including Cyberoam, Sophos, Fortinet, SonicWALL, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard and more. They also are trained and skilled in next-gen firewall/UTM, web/e-mail gateway, web proxy and web application firewall supporting technologies.
“Today, majority of the MSSPs cater to end customers, whereas we want to empower our partners (VARs, LARs and MSPs) to provide comprehensive and cost-effective managed security services,” said Jacob Thankachen, vice president of strategic sales for the Americas, Cloud24x7. “That is where our differentiation lies. We have invested in experienced and vetted network security experts (pre-sales engineers), infrastructure (SOC Centre), tools (ticketing/SIEM etc…) and strictly followed ITIL-based processes–so our partners don’t have to.”
Cloud24x7 is a 100-percent channel-driven company, which also provides white-label security service packages which partners can brand as their own offering.
