CI Security Launches Insight Partner Program to Improve Cybersecurity for More Organizations
More businesses and organizations deserve modern, realistic cyber
security. To reach that wider range of customers, CI
Security is announcing that it is expanding by launching the Insight
Partners that work with CI Security will be able to bring to their
customers real Managed Detection and Response (MDR). Customers with
Critical Insight MDR get CI's dedicated technology platform with
24/7/365 monitoring by expert security analysts. Those analysts are
trained to hunt for intrusion attempts with detection analytics that
identify and prioritize events for investigation. The CI Security expert
analysts go well beyond what competitors do, with a mission focus to
protect services critical to life and business. Customers with Critical
Insight MDR lower the impact of serious breaches by catching intruders
The Insight Partner Program is designed to enable customer-centric VAR,
integrator, and IT managed service companies to bring Gartner (News - Alert)-recognized
MDR to their customers at a reasonable cost.
"We are thrilled to announce our new partner program at CI Security,"
said Garrett Silver, CEO of CI Security. "By offering our flagship MDR
service along with information security consulting services, we can help
our partners' customers achieve more than just regulatory compliance.
When we work with our customers, our goal is to shore up the detection
and response functions in their security program and help minimize the
financial impact should a cyber security incident occur." Silver
continues, "We are keenly aware that organizations need more insight
into their network so they can monitor, detect and respond to cyber
threats. Our solution gives them that critical insight to their entire
In order to combat rapidly-evolving cyber threats, the detection and
response functions within the cyber security program have come into
focus to protect networks from cyber-crime, reduce cyber security risk,
and minimize intrusion dwell time. The managed detection and response
market is expected to grow 30% by 2022 in the United States. According
to a 2018 report in Gartner Research, "By 2020, 15% of organizations
will be using MDR services, up from less than 5% today."
Many organizations today are relying upon preventive controls such as
firewalls, anti-virus, URL filtering, e-mail security, and user
judgement-which all routinely fail when attacked by persistent,
well-resourced threat actors. CI
Security's MDR service combines purpose-built technology with
security analysts stationed in the CI Security Operation Center (SOC) to
provide full cycle threat monitoring, alerting, investigation, response,
"The state of cyber security today is that it's fundamentally a people
problem. Experienced security staff is needed to select, tune, and
maintain detection technology, as well as to investigate the barrage of
alerts that are generated," said CISO and Founder Mike Hamilton. While
CI Security's technology is at the core of the service, it's service
management and customer communication that sets their MDR solution
apart. "We are not just SOC-as-a-Service. Our analysts are drawn from
the military or university educated and trained on the CI Security
monitoring stack. Our solution provides regulatory compliance, risk
reduction, and cost avoidance while leveraging customers' existing
technology investments and providing a customer experience that reflects
extremely well on our Channel Partners."
"We are always looking for the right partners who share our mission to
protect the security and system health of our customers," said Colin
Brissey, VP of Sales and Partners. Brissey continued, "This is a win for
the customer, a win for the partner, and most importantly, a win for the
public who we are all working to serve."
The partner program provides a turn-key MDR solution for customers
working with CI Security's exclusive partners. In turn, CI Security's
partners receive strong margins on subscription-based recurring revenue,
deal protection, and a technically differentiated product that will
complement existing offerings.
