Houston – August 18, 2020 – Alert Logic today announced a new tier of its Partner Connect program purpose-built for managed service providers (MSPs) to seamlessly deliver advanced cybersecurity services to their customers. Through the industry’s first managed detection and response (MDR) partner program, MSPs can leverage Alert Logic’s best-in-class security solution and exclusive resources to improve unit economics and market expansion at scale.
“Across the board, organizations are looking for cost-effective access to the advanced technologies and 24/7 experts needed to secure IT environments in today’s complex threat landscape,” said Annalea Ilg, Chief Information Security Officer, Involta. “As a full-service MSP operating in a highly competitive market, Involta depends on innovative partners like Alert Logic for differentiated and flexible offerings to meet the unique and ever-changing security needs of our customers.”
