A new Kaspersky partner program for security services providers

A new Kaspersky partner program for security services providers

Kaspersky Lab has launched a new partner program in Africa, aimed at managed service providers (MSPs) that already offer security services or would like to add them to their current portfolio.

According to the cybersecurity firm the program is designed to help MSP's expand their client base, particularly within the SMB market and also satisfy the demand from customers looking to outsource IT functions – including security.

Riaan Badenhorst, Managing Director, Kaspersky Lab Africa says: "Kaspersky Lab's MSP Program was created specifically to meet the needs of partners who want to grow their managed service offerings in cybersecurity – without additional administrative overheads or resources. The program is based on the world's most tested, most awarded multi-layered security solutions. It allows MSP partners to secure the complete customer infrastructure, from mobile devices and desktops to physical and virtual servers, with our comprehensive portfolio that can be delivered both on-premises or from the cloud."

MSPs that sign up to the new program and meet specific criteria, are eligible for what the company calls "special privileges and benefits" including exclusive access to volume based pricing with a separate MSP price list, monthly licensing, as well as product and security training and certification, among others.

MSP looking to engage the program must be a provider of managed services, must purchase licenses from a distributor affiliated with Kaspersky Lab and must provide first line support to customers.

The company also states that managed service providers can choose between cloud and on-premise models.
