Total Defense Adds New Partner ProgramIn addition, IDC has recognized Total Defense as a Major Player in the Worldwide Enterprise Messaging Security MarketScape
Redwood Shores, Calif. – December 11, 2013 – Cloud security leader Total Defense, Inc. today announced the launch of a new partner program aimed at managed service providers (MSPs), enabling them to grow their businesses with the company's cloud-based Web, email and endpoint security solutions. With this new program, Total Defense provides MSPs the ability to confidently monitor, protect and manage their clients' networks, while providing them with a recurring revenue stream unmatched by on-premise software and hardware solutions.
Also announced today, IDC has recognized Total Defense as a Major Player in the Worldwide Enterprise Messaging Security MarketScape1, stating that: "This position reflects Total Defense's pure cloud approach to messaging security, combined with cloud-based Web and endpoint security technologies, making the company a competitive choice for SMBs and midsize enterprises interested in moving to cloud-based security technology models."
MSPs play a significant part in helping small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) protect and maintain their networks. With cloud, virtualization and mobile completely erasing the network perimeter, the smallest security weakness could lead to substantial business impact from loss of data, revenue and productivity. Total Defense for Business allows partners to deliver unsurpassed protection for their customers and in the process generate an additional high margin revenue stream.
"MSPs are central to our growth plan moving forward and we're excited about the opportunity to integrate partners more closely into our business," said Paul Lipman, CEO at Total Defense. "MSPs need the ability to adapt to emerging threats to better protect their customers and Total Defense for Business is a natural choice to help make that happen. As evidenced by our IDC positioning as a Major Player, we're providing superior, proactive security with 24/7 client protection, allowing MSPs to create more strategic engagements with their customers."
This newly established partner program builds on the extensive market validation achieved by the Total Defense for Business security management solution across industries and around the world over the last year. Total Defense for Business is the only unified content and endpoint security service on the market, available on-demand, via the cloud. Customers and partners alike are realizing the benefits of a single cloud-based console and policy engine that reduces security complexity and costs, while providing unparalleled protection by blocking threats in the cloud.
"We're thrilled to partner with a company that provides such an agile and scalable cloud-based security management solution that can easily answer the needs of our customers, no matter their size," said Scott Poehlman, Services Director at Wired Solutions, LLC. "In addition to a game-changing, top-notch security platform, Total Defense gives us the ability to grow our business by providing the most partner-friendly account management we've seen in the industry."
Delivered via the cloud, Total Defense for Business can be rapidly deployed and requires zero up-front costs and no hardware to provision or manage, making it completely seamless for partners and their customers. Total Defense also provides partners with sales and technical training, including 24/7 online and onsite pre-and post-sales technical support. The company also offers MSPs the ability to white label the cloud-based security management platform, retaining brand consistency and dramatically increasing market and revenue opportunities.
Total Defense for Business is the industry's most complete offering for protecting against today's complex blended threats, combining the power, flexibility and ease of a cloud-based service offering with a seamlessly integrated suite of critical technologies - advanced endpoint anti-malware and application controls; Web filtering and malware protection; and anti-spam and email threat prevention.
