Proficio Unveils 'First Year Free' Services Program

One year of cybersecurity services through Proficio's global security operations centers will be available to 30 select organizations

Carlsbad, CA – October 24, 2017 – Proficio™, one of the world’s fastest growing global managed security service providers (MSSP) delivering managed detection and response (MDR), today announced “First Year Free,” a limited-time promotion for select new clients. The exclusive offer provides a free first year of managed security services, including global 24x7 monitoring and alerting.

Proficio’s goal is to help companies manage the increasing cost and scarcity of needed cybersecurity resources to achieve a fully protected environment. The program also allows organizations that are unsatisfied with their current MSSP to make a switch, regardless of contract terms and timelines. The program is exclusively available to the first 30 qualified clients. For terms and details, visit: www.proficio.com/first-year-free.

“The security landscape is complex and challenging — an understatement, given the number of moving parts that are involved in defending an enterprise from cyberattacks. Organizations are struggling to find proactive and predictive security solutions," states Martha Vazquez, Senior Research Analyst, Infrastructure Services at IDC. “Protection comes at a steep price, and many companies are outsourcing their cybersecurity to managed security services providers (MSSPs) to offset increasing costs and leverage the external MSSP’s expertise. Proficio’s offer gives executives an opportunity to outsource their security needs without significant upfront costs, making it easier to switch existing vendors or kickstart a new program.”

Proficio provides a range of cybersecurity services, from 24x7 monitoring and alerting, to incident response and cybersecurity consulting, through their global security operations centers (SOC) in San Diego, Barcelona and Singapore. Proficio is recognized in the industry for its white-glove service, customizable solution packages, automated response capabilities, and alert accuracy.

“Proficio is fully committed to providing innovative solutions to our clients,” said Tim McElwee, Proficio’s President and Chairman of the Board. “That requires creative thinking in all areas of our business which is how we’ve been successful. Organizations need real solutions that address their individual needs, and this new program certainly makes world-class cybersecurity services attainable.”

“The marketplace was speaking loudly and our leadership team chose to take action,” stated Dustin Ritter, Chief Marketing Officer at Proficio. “Organizations know they’re vulnerable and are looking for an immediate solution. Unfortunately, most cybersecurity leaders find themselves in one of two positions: they either lack the internal resources to handle threats effectively and don’t have a budget, or they are unhappy with their current services provider but are hindered by contract constraints. This program was specifically created to remove these hurdles that obstruct complete cyber protection.”
