Emerge partners with ConnectWise for SME security

Managed services provider Emerge Digital has teamed up with MSP software provider ConnectWise, to make enterprise-level cyber security protection "accessible" to SMEs.

The growing cyber security skills gap has led to a lack of in-house expertise at firms to manage their complex networks, while they pay a premium for their IT security solutions. 

By partnering with ConnectWise, Emerge Digital hopes to "redefine" cyber security for SMEs, bringing industry expertise and enterprise-grade protection to the market at "SME-friendly prices". 

The new offering called OnyxSecure will be available in three tiers. Each will include a dedicated team of highly certified cyber security engineers, and advanced protection from vendors including Microsoft, ThreatLocker and CybSafe, "all of which are typically unaffordable for SMEs", says Emerge. 

Emerge Digital’s entry level tier, OnyxSecure Essential, includes a 24/7 security operations centre (SOC), dark web monitoring and zero trust security, as well as AI-powered "robust endpoint defence", and a solution which provides Microsoft "cloud fortification", by logging usage data from across Microsoft 365 systems. 

Tom Henson, managing director at Emerge Digital, said: “ConnectWise creates state-of-the-art products that are used far and wide across the cyber security and IT industries. Having been a trusted partner of the company for nearly a decade, we’ve leveraged ConnectWise’s products to provide our clients with best-in-class solutions across their cyber security."

He said: "Together we wanted to break down barriers for SMEs and tackle the challenges for corporations, helping them access the solutions and support needed to confidently defend their businesses against today’s emerging threats.

“Our three tiers of cyber security services sit at 60% less than our usual price point, which was already extremely competitive with the wider industry."

OnyxSecure Essentials is £20 per user, per month. Prices for OnyxSecure Enhanced start from £50, while the OnyxSecure Elite price is calculated on a bespoke basis.
