Vijilan fills a big gap in the industry as the only security services provider to focus exclusively on the MSP market with security services for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
Vijilan Security, the IT security company that exclusively enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and IT Solution Providers to deliver security services, today announced it has surpassed its first-year objective for signing partners in its first three months of operations in North America. With more than 40 partners on board, Vijilan fills a big gap in the industry as the only security services provider to focus exclusively on the MSP market with security services for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Vijilan’s ideal partner already has some type of security service in place or has some capabilities around security. To make it easy for partners to do business, Vijlian is integrated with ConnectWise and has plans to add integration for other PSA providers, as well.
Today’s SMBs do not have the resources or expertise to manage cyber-threats, requiring them to turn to partners as trusted security providers. MSPs and IT Solution Providers lack the operational capabilities and deep expertise required to detect and remediate cyber-threats, which is why they have embraced Vijilan. To help its partners meet the needs of SMBs, Vijilan’s cyber-threat monitoring and support services, delivered on a white-label basis, include:
- Event log data collection at the customer’s location;
- Automated parsing and correlation in its cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) system;
- Human review of potential threats in its 24/7 security operations center; and
- Remediation guidance from the company’s security engineers.

“Vijilan has become our intelligence engine, enabling us to deliver highly effective, actionable security to our customers. We have rolled out Vijilan as a white-label offering so our clients can choose to add it for 24/7 realtime intrusion alerting and correlations. Our customers like it because they understand it; the benefit is immediately obvious.”
Gary Mullen, CMO
“There are two major market gaps - providing protection for SMBs, and MSPs not having the security expertise needed. When SMBs are breached, they don’t make the news but are more likely to go out of business than larger organizations. As MSPs and IT Solution Providers typically don’t have the security expertise and infrastructure in place to protect their customers, it made sense to sell our intelligence and expertise through the channel. This is a unique strategy within in the market, but one that partners have shown a tremendous amount of interest in. We are looking forward to expanding our program and further protecting SMBs.”
Grounded in 15 years of threat intelligence and knowledge base expertise, the company’s advanced security services are sold exclusively through the Vijilan Partner Program, a white label channel sales model. With several 24/7 security service, support and log archiving offerings, Vijilan works with partners to determine which offering works best with their business model and the needs of its clients.
Vijilan Security enables Managed Security Providers (MSPs) and solution providers to sell cost-effective 24/7 security services to their clients. The company maintains a 100 percent channel sales model, meaning its services are sold exclusively through managed security and service providers.
