Judges’ panel impressed by cloud-based managed security service
Large corporations are not the only engine driving the economy. Small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) play a decisive role in defining the success of a particular business location or country. But they often lack the resources to protect their use of the internet from hacker and cybercriminal attacks as effectively as large companies. This implies a rethink on the part of security providers, who need to tailor their solutions more precisely to the requirements of SMEs.
This is exactly the reasoning behind Secucloud’s B2B products. The German IT specialist makes its cloud-based solutions available as a security-as-a-service offering, which gives service providers a comprehensive cross-selling opportunity with their customers. The solutions enable resellers in the Firewall as a Service segment to act as managed security service providers (MSSP), offering their SME customer base a package of powerful security technologies that can be scaled flexibly to their needs and are automatically kept up to date with no need for time-consuming maintenance.
“The SME segment is full of hidden champions – small and medium sized firms that the general public may never have heard of but who are world leaders in their specific sector,” says Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud. “Accordingly, their specialized knowledge and intellectual property stored in their systems is very valuable – and a highly attractive target for hackers and cybercriminals. No wonder attacks on small and midsized businesses are increasing at an alarming rate. These firms don’t often have the required time or resources to defend themselves in the same way as big corporations do – by using high-performance technology. That’s where our Secuscaler comes in. Managed security service providers can make strong, efficient cloud protection available to their customers, while relieving them of time-consuming implementation and maintenance work. Against this backdrop, we’re really delighted that the award jury has honored us for our approach.”
