PC Matic and MSPAlliance Form Joint Program to Promote MSP Cyber Security Transparency
Collaboration will encourage Cyber Security Best Practices, best of breed cyber security technologies, and Cyber Verify assurance rating
PC Matic partners to receive either A, AA or AAA Cyber Verify Rating Through MSPAlliance
PC Matic and MSPAlliance® today announced a joint program to promote cyber security best practices amongst managed service providers and their customers. The program will promote good cyber security practices amongst MSPs through the adoption of effective security technologies. MSPs who have demonstrated their ability to adopt cyber security best practices through the use of these tools will receive a Cyber Verify assurance rating.
Based on a 15-year-old standard for MSPs, the cyber risk rating will allow service providers (and their customers) to more accurately assess the cyber risk of the provider, and by extension, of the customer environment. The Cyber Verify Risk rating is a system designed to communicate cyber risk protection practices employed by service providers. Consumers of cloud and managed services can use the Cyber Verify rating system to determine what type of provider will be best suited to their needs.
“We are honored to be working with PC Matic to promote positive cyber security awareness and behavior amongst the global managed service provider community,” said Celia Weaver, president and co-founder of MSPAlliance. “Promotion of the Cyber Verify ratings throughout PC Matic partners can only serve to bring awareness to the business consumer that managed service providers, along with best practices and best of breed security software, is the best multi-layered defense protocol in the battle to secure their IT environments.”
“We are proud to be partnering with MSPAlliance in promoting standards and best practices via their Cyber Verify program,” said PC Matic Vice President of Sales Corey Munson. “As a new added benefit of the PC Matic Partner program, we will be working directly with our MSP partners to help them achieve certification. The globally recognized work being done by MSPAlliance to promote security transparency and assurance is desperately needed for both consumers and partners alike”
*PC Matic partners may contact either MSPAlliance or PC Matic, to discuss issuance of their A, AA or AAA Cyber Verify Rating
