Nozomi Networks Inc. has announced its MSSP Elite Program – claimed by the company to be the industry’s first complete program for OT and IoT managed security services.
The program fully equips industry leading MSSPs with Nozomi Networks’ award-winning OT and IoT cybersecurity solutions, expertise and selling resources. Nozomi Networks enables MSSPs to generate additional revenue through new lines of business while giving customers greater flexibility and maximum value when it comes to strengthening their OT security postures while balancing resource requirements.
Operational asset management is making its way to the Security Operations Center (SOC) and customers are also turning to MSSPs for comprehensive IT and OT managed threat detection and response (MTDR) and platform management. With Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Program, partners can successfully operationalize, maintain and optimising OT and IoT security services. Customers benefit with more highly scalable industry-proven solutions.
“MSSPs are filling a critical role as CISOs look for cost-effective ways to strengthen their security postures across IT and OT while juggling resource limitations and skills gaps,” said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances. “Nozomi Networks MSSP Elite Program allows us to work with our partners to address a growing requirement to include advanced OT and IoT security solutions and maximise value for our mutual customers.”
Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Program goes beyond basic OT and IoT security integrations to support MSSP partners with the resources they need to effectively integrate, sell and support Nozomi Networks’ solutions as part of a full managed services offering for the customer. Specialized training and certifications ensure partners are fully qualified to support customers with deep network visibility, advanced monitoring, and actionable threat intelligence for the best possible incident response. MSSPs who participate in the program also have access to resources to further develop their industrial security expertise, grow their MSSP practice, expand their portfolio of services, and increase customer satisfaction. MSSPs can incorporate Nozomi Networks’ full suite of cloud-based and on premises solutions and manage them on behalf of their customers.
Nozomi Networks’ current list of MSSP Elite partners includes Accenture, FireEye Mandiant, Moro Hub, Telefónica, and others. Elite standing requires commitment to training and certification of sales and engineering team members as well as certification of the MSSP’s platform management or SOC service developed based on Nozomi Networks solutions. This reinforces the commitment to superior service and value to customers throughout their entire OT/IoT/IT converged networks.
