Feb 16, 2018 Uncategorized Comments Off on Cisco Offers Cloud-Based Endpoint Security Solutions for Managed Security Service Providers
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cisco today is helping address the challenges of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) and their customers by offering MSSPs comprehensive security, visibility, and control of customer endpoints without added hardware or complexity. The Cisco endpoint security portfolio includes three industry-leading solutions—Cisco AMP for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella, and Meraki Systems Manager to offer protection against advanced malware and threats.
Security teams know the endpoints in their environments are being targeted by advanced threats, but often lack the security talent, tools, and budget to address those challenges. As a result, organizations of all sizes are choosing to augment their in-house IT security with managed security services. Nearly half of SMBs and enterprises in the US1 are outsourcing at least one aspect of their security practice to third parties, with most outsourcing multiple pieces of their practice.
MSSPs today are helping customers protect their network from advanced threats, reduce expense on detecting and mitigating threats, and, augment talent amidst a cybersecurity skills shortage. When MSSPs partner with the right vendor, security services can become a profitable way to differentiate their organization from the competition and strengthen existing customer relationships.
The Cisco MSSP endpoint security portfolio was built to help MSSPs take advantage of this massive opportunity, featuring:
• Comprehensive Cloud-Based Endpoint Security Portfolio
• Profitable & Scalable Business Models: drive monetization of new services, adding incremental revenue streams.
• Efficient Service Creation & Ongoing Operations
“Cisco AMP was integrated into our NetDefend® Malware Protector Service and Malware Outbreak Service years ago,” said Rick Chapman, CTO, InterVision Systems, LLC. “We worked closely with Cisco as they developed their next-generation AMP platform. With its multitenant, cloud-based delivery model, AMP for Endpoints aligns with our operational needs and provides flexibility to deliver enhanced security services that increase our revenue and profitability.”
“At a time when customers are moving to the cloud and struggling with requirements to improve operational efficiency, we’re partnering with MSSPs to ensure they can deliver comprehensive solutions with security, visibility and end point control,” said Gee Rittenhouse, SVP of Engineering, Security Business Group, Cisco. “Through flexible licensing models and an expanding portfolio, we address customer needs and the needs of our MSSPs to differentiate and grow their businesses.”
