“We’re excited to be a strategic partner of Private Protocol and assist in helping to expand their security offerings and deliver proof of value to their customers. This partnership also allows us to help more businesses in need of the fundamental building blocks of an effective cybersecurity program. A powerful, easy to use vulnerability management solution is key to raising the security maturity of any organization,” said Mark Bell, managing director, Digital Defense.
The Digital Defense MSP Partner Program, along with Digital Defense’s cloud-native SaaS platform, Frontline.Cloud, creates actionable opportunities for MSP, MSSP (managed security service providers) and MDR (managed detection and response) partners to help more clients in the rapidly growing cybersecurity market.
