PSA Announces Partnership With Defendify for MSSP Program
PSA, a consortium of professional systems integrators, announced the addition of Defendify to the partners in its Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program. The MSSP program is designed to help systems integrators diversify their service offerings and realize the full potential and benefits of a managed services business model.
“Defendify gives our integrators the ability to protect their organizations from cyber threats with a holistic platform at an affordable price,” said Dan Dunkel, managing director of PSA’s MSSP program. “Small and medium businesses are a common target for cyber criminals, but often these organizations don’t have the protection they need; Defendify changes that for its users.”
Defendify’s cyber security platform arms businesses with cyber protection that goes beyond traditional antiviruses and firewalls, including helping to create a culture of employee awareness and institutional knowledge about cyber threats and best practices.
Defendify is a holistic solution that adds multiple layers of protection to existing baseline defenses. Its cyber security dashboard offers assessments and health grades, recommendations and reports, policies and procedures, alerts and notifications, a stolen password scanner, employee awareness training tools, scanners that search for vulnerabilities found on IOT and network devices and more.
“We’re thrilled to partner with PSA and empower its members to succeed with a comprehensive cyber security solution that’s simple, affordable, flexible and scalable for their diverse small business customer base,” said Rob Simopoulos, co-founder of Defendify and 20+ year veteran of the physical and electronic security industry. “The Defendify platform provides a single pane of glass, focuses on automation and works continuously to improve security posture as small businesses grow and threats continue to evolve.”
PSA’s MSSP program hinges on uniting partners in cyber security and cloud-based security solutions, offering training and certification opportunities and financing options with assistance from PSA.
