GCN Group, the largest B2B channel network, announced today a global strategic partnership with Malwarebytes, a provider of real-time cyber protection. As part of the partnership, Malwarebytes’ advanced endpoint protection and remediation solutions will be made available to MSPs through GCN Group’s global network spanning six continents.
“We are excited to add Malwarebytes to our vendor portfolio and offer its industry-leading cloud-based security and cyber protection solutions to our wider network. With the increasing threat of ransomware, Malwarebytes’ endpoint protection and incident response solutions will enable us to better support organizations with limited resources so they can successfully combat malware and manage endpoints at scale,” said Gerard Uson, Global Business Development Director of GCN Group.
As constrained IT and security teams, limited resources, and increased threat volume continues to stress the security of all businesses, small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are particularly vulnerable. The collaboration between GCN Group and Malwarebytes equips SMBs with robust endpoint detection and response (EDR), endpoint protection (EP) and Incident Response (IR) tools, that automate advanced defenses and rapidly resolve incidents for ongoing resilience.
“Easily accessible, quality cybersecurity is core to consumer trust and successful business practices,” said Brian Thomas, Vice President of Worldwide MSP and Channel Programs for Malwarebytes. “We are committed to bringing real-time protection along with best-in-class remediation to organizations of all sizes. Our partnership with GCN Group re-enforces our commitment to SMBs while also significantly broadening our reach.”
