Asset visibility and intelligence are like towering, Grecian pillars dotting the dynamic, rugged landscape of cybersecurity. They’re crucial because a.) you can’t protect what you can’t see, b.) understanding your assets to better prioritize/allocate resources accordingly is big, and c.) we’ll of course lump in effective threat detection and response (MDR/EDR), patch management and vulnerability remediation, and comprehensive understanding of IT assets for compliance sake. These are musts, and they do legitimately support how cybersecurity measures are carried out in nearly every field.

That’s why we’re reporting on a new strategic reseller partnership between two secure-everything organizations: Sevco Security and GuidePoint Security.

For context, here’s the long-story-short version of each:

Sevco’s team motto is “hardwired to stay humble, hungry, and smart.” This cybersecurity software org was born out of what it describes as “a strong motivation to fix a decades-old problem” – namely, attackers unfortunately better understanding their target networks than the network owners, themselves. Sevco knows how important asset inventory management and consistent visibility are, given how “it doesn’t matter how many remediation tickets you open if a vulnerable device lacks patch management,” their team stated. That’s why the Sevco platform enables robust exposure management, vulnerability prioritization, and remediation with visibility across businesses’ entire attack surfaces. (Sevco then automates and validates to improve the efficacy of future security operations, as well.)

GuidePoint is in a similar boat; a boat that sails along the MSP version of the Aegean Sea (I’m sticking with the Greek theme for this article, readers) and provides orgs with a bona fide track record of proven expertise and tailored services to help make data-driven cybersecurity decisions that minimize risk and, quite frankly, stick. GuidePoint’s cybersecurity practitioners live and breathe this stuff; many are veterans from the DoD, Intel Communities and several Fortune 500 companies, and they hold, quote, “just as many industry and product certifications,” to boot. From startups to cabinet-level government agencies, GuidePoint embraces both offensive and defense security tactics that guide businesses through the oft-complex maze of top-notch security so everything going forward is done so in an informed (and exhaustive) pace.

Thus, it’s pretty clear as to why these two have partnered.

According to last week’s official announcement, this partnership will allow GuidePoint’s customers “to leverage the full Sevco platform and its asset intelligence resources to help surface previously unknown vulnerabilities and more deeply understand enterprise IT cyber risks.”

Per J.J. Guy, CEO and co-founder of Sevco Security:

“For years cybersecurity teams have struggled to obtain an accurate inventory of the assets within their environments, especially when siloed teams work with siloed tools. That is why we created Sevco, to provide organizations with a comprehensive view into the state of their assets and controls. As the platform has grown, we’ve developed additional capabilities to help organizations drive more deliberate and proactive cybersecurity practices. We’re excited to have the opportunity to bring our platform and intelligence to GuidePoint’s customers.”

And per Justin Iwaniszyn, Director of New and Emerging Alliances at GuidePoint Security:

“Amid today’s increasingly complex digital landscape, evolving attack surfaces, and growing cyber threats, comprehensive asset intelligence is a necessity to mitigate risk. Our partnership with Sevco can help joint customers achieve enhanced visibility into their security environments to optimize security operations and improve their overall security posture.”
