Security vendor, Sophos, has unveiled its Complete MSP Security partner program designed to align the business and technical needs of managed services providers (MSPs) to bring complete security services to market.

The vendor said Complete MSP Security is the first MSP-focused solution to offer complete protection for networks, endpoints, and mobile devices from a single vendor.

"We developed Sophos Complete MSP Security in close collaboration with our MSPs, which wanted a solution that met their customers' security needs, optimised cash flow and increased revenue potential," Sophos worldwide sales and channel senior vice-president, Mike Valentine, said.

"As a channel-first company, the goal of this program has been to make it easy for MSPs to manage and grow their businesses with us, and we believe our new program will result in tremendous growth for them."

Through self-provisioning MSP licensing, the program employs usage-based pricing and pay-as-you-go monthly billing, with no up-front commitments required.

It can offer a full range of IT security services that provide credibility and protection, including centralised management which enables partners to simplify management of all customers' locations at no extra charge.

"Having the ability to have a true pay-as-you-go offering from our UTM offering is exactly what we, as MSPs, have been asking for from the industry," CharTec COO, Shane Swanson, said. "It's rewarding to know that Sophos is not only listening to its partners, but taking action on our feedback."

In addition, PowerNet business development manager, Cameron Price, said the program has eliminated the need for its consultants to monitor and manage multiple consoles across client sites.
