Kaspersky Hits 2,000 MSP Partner Milestone

By Maurice Nagle

Milestones are meant to be relished, but for Service Providers, specifically managed service providers, there is little room for rest. This exploding space is seeing its active participants experiencing robust bottom line growth.

Kaspersky announced that it has seen its numbers of registered MSP partners hit 2,000. In two short years, Kaspersky has created a rich ecosystem of partners spanning Europe, Africa, the Middle East, North and Latin America.

“Kaspersky remains committed to our partner community and we understand that ease of doing business is the key demand of any MSP. This recent update to our MSP Partner Program is part of a larger improvement plan focused on existing and new partners, their profitability, business needs and access to tools and security solutions,” comments Riaan Badenhorst, GM for Kaspersky in Africa.

Research from Kaspersky indicates that nearly 60 percent of organizations around the world will leverage an MSP to cut security-related costs. As such, Kaspersky United promises support and speedy onboarding for MSPs. The Kaspersky portfolio offers end to end security, from cloud services and cloud environments, to endpoint protection.

“Kaspersky’s trusted security portfolio for MSPs, with easy to manage solutions enable our partners to build out their managed service offering with confidence. The personal and direct contact we have with the Kaspersky team helps us to support and provide in return a great service to our partners. We value our partnership with Kaspersky and their dedication to continue to enable, support and grow the channel,” says Chantelle Erwee, Kaspersky brand manager at First Distribution.

The boost in the MSP market is not simply a fad, as businesses cannot deny the positive impact for operations with a trusted MSP.
