WESTMINSTER, Colo.—PSA announced the addition of Defendify to the partners in its Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program, which is designed to help systems integrators diversify their service offerings and realize the full potential and benefits of a managed services business model.

“Defendify gives our integrators the ability to protect their organizations from cyber threats with a holistic platform at an affordable price,” Dan Dunkel, managing director of PSA’s MSSP program, said in the announcement. “Small and medium businesses are a common target for cyber criminals, but often these organizations don’t have the protection they need; Defendify changes that for its users.”

Defendify’s cybersecurity platform arms businesses with cyber protection that goes beyond traditional antiviruses and firewalls, including helping to create a culture of employee awareness and institutional knowledge about cyber threats and best practices.

Defendify is a unique, holistic solution that adds multiple layers of protection to existing baseline defenses. Its cybersecurity dashboard offers assessments and health grades, recommendations and reports, policies and procedures, alerts and notifications, a stolen password scanner, employee awareness training tools, scanners that search for vulnerabilities found on IOT and network devices, and more.

“We’re thrilled to partner with PSA and empower its members to succeed with a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that’s simple, affordable, flexible, and scalable for their diverse small business customer base,“ said Defendify Co-Founder Rob Simopoulos, a 20-plus year security veteran and SSN “40 under 40” winner from the class of 2015. “The Defendify platform provides a single pane of glass, focuses on automation, and works continuously to improve security posture as small businesses grow and threats continue to evolve.”

PSA’s MSSP program hinges on uniting industry-leading partners in cybersecurity and cloud-based security solutions, offering training and certification opportunities and financing options with assistance from PSA.
