Sword & Shield Announces MSSP Partnership Program for Technology Service Providers
Leading cybersecurity firm now enables managed service providers (MSPs) and other technology service providers to quickly add managed security to their service offering.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. July 10, 2018 – Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, a globally-recognized managed security service provider (MSSP) based in Knoxville, Tennessee, announced the launch of a partnership program to fill a need for MSPs and other technology service providers to quickly add around-the-clock managed security services to their offering.
The partnership program allows technology consulting companies to provide MSSP solutions to their customers without the time-consuming and costly investment required to become an MSSP. This, in turn, helps end users keep up with today’s constantly changing threat landscape and fulfill compliance requirements.
This comes at a fraction of the cost of staffing, running and maintaining a facility on their own.
Sword & Shield President and CEO John McNeely said adding MSSP to their services also helps MSPs and other technology service providers deliver valuable services to their customers in the wake of the current worldwide shortage of cybersecurity expertise.
“There is a significant shortage in cybersecurity talent right now, a problem that is not going away soon” said McNeely. “Industry experts predict there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions globally by 2021. The MSSP program helps technology enabled service companies provide access to 24x7x365 expertise and protection right away.”
McNeely explained that Sword & Shield’s MSSP security analysts and resources serve as an extension of their partners’ service team to support their clients on a collaborative basis, address potential issues, and respond quickly to problems.
The MSSP Partnership Program key benefits include:
- New revenue opportunities
- Expanded service portfolio, resource, capabilities, and credibility
- Enhanced customer contact and connection
- Improved security and compliance industry knowledge and expertise
- Increased training and learning
- Efficiency through co-marketing programs and initiatives
