Trend Micro targets MSSPs with new channel effort

Trend Micro has extended its partner programme through launching a new worldwide offering designed to empower MSSPs, service partners and pure-play managed detection and response (MDR) companies.

“Breaches are on the rise, but many global organisations can’t afford the investment of time, resources and staff that a full SOC [security operations centre] requires,” said Louise McEvoy, vice president of US channels at Trend. “And those that can often find their analysts frustrated by tool sprawl and overwhelmed by alerts. This opens a lucrative and important opportunity for MSSPs.”

Trend Vision One for Service Providers provides turnkey threat detection and response with extended capabilities built for managed security service partners, offering multi-tenant SOC capabilities and hundreds of third party integrations across the IT environment, and with other security vendors.

“Trend’s channel-first model means the company is well positioned to address the fast-growing MSSP market,” said Jay McBain, chief analyst at Canalys. “Applying their resources beyond technology and into channel-driven services and programmes like this latest example will enable them to maintain this standing and better serve customers.”
