SAN FRANCISCO, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kenna Security Inc., a leader in predictive cyber risk, today welcomes new partner GuidePoint Security, a leading provider of innovative cybersecurity solutions, to Kenna's growing roster of MSSP and reseller partners. Addressing the cyber risk needs of modern enterprises of all sizes, GuidePoint will resell and integrate the Kenna Security Platform with vSOC Identify VM, its vulnerability management managed security service offering.
Leveraging Kenna's SaaS-based Security Platform, powered by Cyber Risk Context Technology™, GuidePoint Security can now quickly, efficiently, and profitably deliver SaaS-based vulnerability management and cyber risk management services critical to defending its customers from cyber attacks. Kenna's automated risk analysis helps GuidePoint Security's customers identify and remediate those specific vulnerabilities that present the greatest actual risk to their organization.
"The Kenna Security Platform enables GuidePoint's managed vulnerability offerings to go beyond the traditional 'scan and report' model many MSSPs deliver. With Kenna, GuidePoint's vSOC is able to provide customized, prioritized, and actionable guidance that is most relevant to our clients and updated in real-time," said Don Morash, practice lead at GuidePoint. "With GuidePoint's vSOC Identify VM Services and Kenna's automation and data science-driven approach, our clients don't spend weeks analyzing volumetric threat, exploit, and vulnerability data to determine where to focus their limited resources. They become consumers of actionable data and can focus their attention on FIXING what's important."
"With its many successful, long-term engagements among mid- and large-enterprise customers, GuidePoint understands the need to deliver best-of-breed solutions that can help organizations prioritize their vulnerabilities and take action on cybersecurity threats," said Tamir Hardof, vice president of marketing at Kenna Security. "We are excited to be chosen as GuidePoint's partner and to bring the Kenna Security Platform to organizations struggling to understand which of the thousands of vulnerabilities identified each day are putting them at greatest risk and how they can mitigate those threats most effectively."
