Sevco Security, the cloud-native CAASM platform that delivers the industry’s most accurate, continuously updated IT asset inventory, today announced the launch of the Sevco Channel Partner Program, including an incentive-based program to reward channel partner representatives for driving new deals and evaluations with Sevco. This new tiered sales performance incentive fund (SPIFF) program includes generous monetary incentives and significant discounts on Sevco’s SaaS-based 4D Asset Intelligence Platform for its partners.
“We’re excited to announce the launch of the Sevco Channel Partner Program because we understand how integral channel partners are for organizations trying to understand the cyber tool landscape, simplify the procurement process, and drive immediate value by understanding how these tools deliver better outcomes together,” said Trace Sheridan, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Sevco Security. “Because our platform is able to identify previously unknown devices within an IT environment, Sevco is uniquely positioned to better help our reseller community understand their customers’ asset landscape through correlation of device, user, software and vulnerability data.”
In today’s cloud-native business environment, most organizations have the tools necessary to help secure their IT environments. However, they likely don’t have full visibility into how well those tools are deployed across company-owned assets. This lack of visibility into the assets that need to be managed and protected upends the very foundation of every major security framework, presenting a major challenge for security teams – how can you protect what you can’t see?
Sevco’s 4D Asset Intelligence Platform provides comprehensive real-time asset visibility and fulfills CIS Critical Security Control 1: actively managing, inventorying, tracking, and correcting all enterprise assets. Sevco automates discovery and remediation of security gaps, vulnerabilities, and risks. With the asset data and real-time intelligence provided by Sevco, security teams can make faster, accurate, evidence-based decisions to close security gaps that appear when devices are unprotected.
The Sevco 4D Asset Intelligence Platform integrates seamlessly with existing security stacks at scale, allowing service providers to quickly increase security operations center (SOC) efficiency and better serve their customers by protecting them from threats.
The Sevco Channel Partner SPIFF will run from November 1, 2023 until January 31, 2024 – all deal registrations must be submitted by January 31, 2024.

The 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 list recognizes leading global MSPs for their achievements in growth and innovation within a volatile business environment.
The accolade was conferred upon Thrive during the MSP 501 Awards Gala on November 1 at Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Florida.
The award recognizes Thrive's commitment to delivering advanced global cybersecurity programs with excellence.
Thrive, a distinguished managed services provider specializing in cybersecurity and digital transformation, has announced its recognition as The Channel Futures 2023 Managed Security Services Partner of the Year.

He further emphasized that in an era characterized by pervasive data breaches and cyber threats, Thrive adheres to its mission of delivering the utmost protection for businesses spanning North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.
Thrive distinguishes itself from its industry peers due to its unique approach, which involves integrating cutting-edge tools, a 24/7 Security Operation Center staffed by vigilant experts, and advanced cybersecurity mesh automation systems, all aimed at enhancing the overall security posture of its clients. The company consistently demonstrates innovation, expertise, and a client-centric approach to streamline all security functions through its state-of-the-art SOAR and ServiceNow platforms, in contrast to the limited, point-in-time solutions many competitors offer.
This year's survey has seen one of the fiercest competitions in its history. Thrive has jumped to the 21st position on the 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings, a significant leap from its 2022 ranking at 50.
The MSP 501 ranking does not exclusively recognize MSPs based on their size and revenue; instead, it assesses organizations by considering criteria such as annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue composition, growth, innovation, and the technologies they supported in the preceding year. The study also acknowledges their business acumen, best practices, and the consistent and reliable advice they provide to their customers.
MSPs worldwide regarded 2022 as a significant year, marked by increased investments by SMBs, the integration of cloud computing for hybrid workforce support, automation, AI development, M&A activities, and the elevation of MSPs to trusted business and technology experts in their roles as frontline employees. The providers featured in this list exemplify their commitment to driving progress within the MSP sector and the entire channel, ushering in a new wave of innovation.
Before the MSP 501 Gala, Rob Stephenson participated as a featured expert panelist in two distinguished sessions at the Channel Futures MSP Summit: 'Gaining an Edge in Cybersecurity with AI: A Channel Partners Playbook' and '(Almost) Everything You Need to Know About AI: Tips and Best Practices for Building AI Solutions Customers Actually Need.'
