“Cloud24x7 serves as a strategic security vendor to IT solutions providers, MSPs and MSSPs,” Thankachen said. “For those IT solution providers who don’t sell security today, Cloud24x7 will help open doors to the managed security business through our white-label security operations center-as-a-service (SOC) platform. For MSPs and MSSPs, we offer alternative routes to enhance margin and reduce capital expenditure. We have invested in a state-of-the-art SOC and security information and event management (SIEM) platform for threat intelligence, breach detection and proactive monitoring. Our channel partners can sell security without having to absorb high cap-ex and subsequent impact on margin.”
