With its new dedicated MSP Programme, the global cybersecurity company is looking to help managed service providers (MSPs), expand their managed service offerings and grow their business
Kaspersky Lab’s new partner programme is aimed at MSPs that already offer security services or would like to add them to their current portfolio. The company says the programme helps MSPs address the growing demand for IT security services and enables them to attract new customers in the SMB markets, while satisfying existing customers looking to outsource all IT functions, including security, to a trusted third party.
The specialised program is designed for partners that want to enhance and grow their reputation and expertise, achieve maximum margin at minimum risk and ensure that their customers’ data and infrastructure are kept safe. Kaspersky Lab’s offering includes products and technologies that will enable MSP partners to provide new security services to their customers, such as remote security monitoring, managed security, virtualisation security and mobile device security and management.
MSPs who participate in the programme will enjoy special privileges and benefits including:
Exclusive access to volume-based pricing with a separate MSP price list
Product and security training and certification
Standard and premium technical support (five premium support incidents are included depending on the total number of customer nodes)
Extended sales and marketing materials
Cloud and on-premises models
MSP partners will have the opportunity to choose between cloud and on-premises models to provide greater flexibility of IT security services for their customers.
2017 marks Kaspersky Lab’s 20th anniversary and it is also the sixth year it has been named a “Leader” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.
