Cloud Channel Partner Program

Ermetic, a leading cloud infrastructure security company, today announced its new Above the Cloud Channel Partner Program with separate offerings tailored to the needs of solution providers and managed security service providers (MSSPs). The redesigned program provides the resources solution providers need to deliver turn-key cloud security solutions for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud environments, including the company’s first certification program for its cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP).

The program has more than 90 partners worldwide including Trace3, GuidePoint, Marcum Technology, Optiv, Protiviti, and 3 of the Big 4.

The global cloud security market is projected to grow from $33.13 billion in 2022 to $106.02 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 18.1% in forecast period, 2022-2029. The major factors driving the market include the massive migration of data center workloads to cloud platforms, increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks on cloud computing systems, and growing need for cloud-native protection that provides a contextual view of risk and prioritizes remediation with action steps.

“Ermetic is a pioneer in CIEM. This foundational expertise is a critical component that filters into the entirety of their CNAPP platform and enables us to provide detailed code and policy update recommendations that can be manually or automatically applied to instantly reduce cloud security risk,” said Dominique Singer, VP of Strategy for Eden Data. “Devops teams have very little time for security, so Eden Data needs to be explicit, prescriptive and risk-focused with our cloud configuration recommendations. Ermetic has empowered us to deliver reliable, specific, clear guidance on top priorities in a thoughtfully organized interface.”

The Ermetic CNAPP uses an identity-first approach to unify and automate cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM), cloud security posture management (CSPM), cloud workload protection (CWP), infrastructure as code (IaC) security and Kubernetes security posture management (KSPM). It unifies full asset discovery, deep risk analysis, runtime threat detection and compliance reporting, combined with pinpoint visualization and step-by-step guidance.

“Although organizations recognize the need to implement a comprehensive cloud infrastructure security program, they often lack the in-house multi-cloud expertise to manage it themselves. This is creating a significant opportunity for solution providers and MSSPs,” said Scott Hoard, Head of Global Channel Sales for Ermetic. “The new Ermetic Above the Cloud program is designed to meet the distinct needs of these two types of channel partners. We have also created a certification program that provides the technical skills to set our partners up for success, while improving their efficiency and profitability.”

The Ermetic Above the Cloud Partner Program provides the following partnership levels, criteria, and benefits tailored to meet the unique needs and business goals of solution providers and MSSPs:

Business Wire | April 19, 2023

D3 Security, the leader in smart security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR), today announced it will be exhibiting its new Smart SOAR technology at the 2023 Channel Futures MSP Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. D3’s security experts will be at Booth MSP46 at the Venetian Resort & Expo Convention Center from May 1-2. MSP Summit attendees will get the opportunity to see what makes Smart SOAR the preferred security operations platform for managed service providers around the world. “SOAR can be a gamechanger for MSPs and MSSPs, but too many vendors don’t understand their unique needs,” said Amardeep Dhingra, Director of Growth Marketing at D3 Security. “Smart SOAR is the rare platform that is purpose-built for managed service providers. Whether you’re adding security services to your offerings, or looking to scale your existing security business, we can help you reach those goals faster than you ever thought possible.” D3 Security’s recent innovations go beyond traditional SOAR capabilities to enable fully autonomous risk-based triage and cross-stack remediation, incorporating identity, behavior, and historical data to turn low-fidelity alerts into high-confidence incidents. MSP Summit attendees will also be among the first to get a preview of D3 Security’s MSSP Client Portal, which gives MSSPs’ clients secure access to metrics, messages, and investigation information. The portal streamlines client communication for MSSPs and connects clients’ approvals and comments directly to the SOAR environment. By taking communication off email and messaging platforms and putting it into a single, interactive workspace, the portal greatly reduces dwell time and human error. MSP Summit is the premiere event for all who sell managed services. The event is co-located with Channel Partners Conference & Expo – the largest independent event for the Information and Communications Technology Channel. Both events are expecting an estimated 8,000 channel professionals in attendance, with unparalleled networking and learning opportunities. About D3 Security D3 Security’s Smart SOAR helps solve many of the most entrenched problems in cybersecurity, such as analyst burnout, alert overwhelm, and information silos. D3 Security’s codeless playbooks automate enrichment and remediation tasks, while making it easy for enterprise, MSSP, and public sector security teams to build, modify, and scale security operations workflows.

Partners become part of an ecosystem where they work in partnership to offer solutions that fully meet the evolving needs of customers. ALE facilitates this ecosystem to encourage partners to easily collaborate with each other and combine their complementary strengths. A unique real-time Business Relationship Management platform enhances collaboration between ALE and each of its partners with strategic planning and efficient execution to ensure mutual success. According to Claudio Soland, SVP of Alliances and Global partner programme at ALE: “Our 360 Partner Experience programme allows our partners, existing and new, to do both Capex and XaaS business with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise within a single framework. The enhanced support will help them flourish, especially for those transitioning to a subscription model. In addition, the collaborative ecosystem we are promoting will benefit all our partners around the world.” “Today, customers are asking for more complete and complex solutions, which requires the combined skills of diverse experts. By facilitating this, the 360PX partner ecosystem ensures that end-users receive optimal solutions with best-in-class service, as they migrate to increasingly integrated platforms”, adds Rukmini Glanard, Executive Vice President, Global Sales, Services & Marketing at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
