Kaspersky Lab unveils MSP partnership deal for Africa

Kaspersky Lab has unveiled a partner programme on the continent of Africa, aimed at managed service providers (MSPs) that already offer security services or would like to add them to their current portfolio, reports ITRealms.

The programme, ITRealms gathered would help MSPs to address the growing demand for IT security services and enables them to attract new customers in the Small and Medium Business (SMB) markets, while satisfying existing customers looking to outsource all IT functions, including security, to a trusted third-party.

Managing Director, Kaspersky Lab Africa, Riaan Badenhorst, said that “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.”

Also, First Distribution, operating across Africa, with offices in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, recently resolved to join the Kaspersky Lab’s programme, at their First for Cloud Roadshow in Johannesburg, South Africa, which was attended by over 100 partners, resellers and vendors.

Managing Director, First Distribution, Debbie Abrahall, said that with Kaspersky Lab’s new programme they see great opportunities for resellers and MSPs.

“We believe that with this, everybody in the market, including SMB clients, will benefit from the high-quality cybersecurity proposals that allow remote management and make IT security more affordable” Abrahall said.

ITRealms reports that the specialised programme is designed for MSP partners that want to enhance and grow their reputation and expertise, achieve maximum margin at minimum risk, and ensure that their customers’ data and infrastructure are kept safe. Kaspersky Lab’s offering includes products and technologies that will enable MSP partners to provide new security services to their customers, such as remote security monitoring, managed security, virtualization security and mobile device security and management.
