Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX company, has launched a security operations centre as a service (SOCaaS) offering that enables partners to offer managed security services Alison Nixon to their customers without having to invest up-front or miss out on opportunities while they build their own capabilities.
Alison Nixon, Director, Security, Advanced Solutions at Tech Data UK & Ireland, said: “SOCaaS has been highlighted as a huge opportunity by analysts, but many small and mid-market partners just don’t have the skill set or the investment capability to build and offer a managed security service quickly enough to address the immediate opportunity.
“With our SOCaaS offering, they can offer a comprehensive and reliable service right away, without having to make the significant up-front investment, time and effort that would be required to establish their own SOC and managed service. It increases their ability to support their customers’ digital transformations and lowers risk for both the end customer and the partner. Crucially, it also means partners can extend and enhance the range of services and value they offer to their customers.”
Partners that want build a long-term security business can make use of Tech Data’s Security Practice Builder to define their strategy, follow a tailored development pathway and become a trusted advisor on security and data protection for their customers. They can then choose to develop their own offering or make use of SOCaaS or any of the other as-a-service and managed security services offered by the Tech Data security practice.
