Breach Secure Now’s IT channel offering provides rigorous security services + $100K of cyber-Insurance to protect their SMB clients
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
Breach Secure Now!, a new division launched by HIPAA Secure Now! enables MSPs (managed service providers) to offer high-powered protection for sensitive data to their small and mid-sized business (SMB) clients.
MSPs can expand their own brands with Breach Secure Now!, a white label service that helps organizations prevent data breaches. A comprehensive security platform, Breach Secure Now! offers in-depth security risk assessments, detailed security policies and procedures, and comprehensive employee security training, as well as tools to scan for personally identifiable information (PII) and to identify system vulnerabilities. The service also includes $100,000 in cyber-insurance coverage and breach response services including legal, forensic, breach notification and ID/credit monitoring.
“Our MSP partners have been asking for a data security service for their non-healthcare clients that would meet the same rigorous standards as our HIPAA Secure Now! platform,” said Art Gross, CEO of HIPAA Secure Now! “Educating their clients on how risks to data can lead to potentially catastrophic business consequences adds value and reinforces the MSP’s role as a trusted partner.
In addition to requests from the company’s 150 MSP partners, HIPAA Secure Now! created the new division – the first to be launched under its Secure Now! brand – in response to the growing recognition by smaller companies that data breaches can affect any enterprise, regardless of size. In fact, more than 70 percent of data breaches target small businesses and 60 percent of small businesses close within six months of experiencing a data breach.
PII on laptops?
The Breach Secure Now! channel model opens up opportunities for MSPs to educate more than 6 million SMBs in the U.S. about the need to protect PII data such as social security and credit card numbers, while also protecting themselves from potential lawsuits arising from breaches. Part of the employee security training focuses on protecting portable devices such as smartphones, tablets and USB drives – because an estimated half of all data breaches occur due to unsecured data on lost or stolen portable devices.
In addition to assessing technological vulnerabilities, Breach Secure Now! provides practical insight to employees and business owners down to the subtleties of distinguishing between legitimate emails and websites, and those designed to execute phishing scams.
A level-playing cloud
As data management continues migrating to cloud-based systems, MSPs need to address the lower demand for their traditional services, such as hardware/software upgrades and licensing. Breach Secure Now! helps level the playing field and gives MSPs a competitive advantage because they can use it to offer their clients additional data security services.
“MSP can now show their clients that if they move their data to the cloud they still need to secure it,” Gross said. “And Breach Secure Now! provides a framework for MSPs to discuss security and risk with their clients, and resources to help convince them of the need to better protect data by investing in security products and services.”
Breach Secure Now! offers an attractive partner program and lets MSPs set the pricing that their clients pay for the service. For more information on the Breach Secure Now! partner program visit https://www.breachsecurenow.com/partners/.
