“Partners of the program can provide proof of value to customers in as little as two weeks with a business communication risk report that relies on SafeGuard Cyber’s easy-to-deploy platform to connect with over 30 cloud applications,” he said. “The Illuminate partner program is designed to drive profitability and predictability by prioritizing the channel for resale, services and support to address business communication compromise.”

SafeGuard Cyber Helps VARs, MSSPs Secure Customers’ Communications

The Illuminate program helps VARs and MSSPs enable security and compliance for all business communications to their customers. Through a combination of unified visibility, contextual analysis and multichannel investigations and detections, SafeGuard Cyber mitigates risks in email, mobile and web messaging apps, collaboration apps and social media.

Powered by natural language understanding (NLU) and social engineering detection technologies, the SafeGuard Cyber platform reduces time to discovery and resolution of social engineering and language-based attacks in more than 50 languages.

SafeGuard Cyber partners BlueAlly and XO Cyber are new to the program.

Jonathan Berger is BlueAlly‘s CMO.

“SafeGuard Cyber is like no other cloud communications security platform on the market,” he said. “Competing tools lack the sophistication to successfully detect social engineering, business email compromise (BEC) and insider threat attacks. Simply using security tools that analyze meta data is no longer enough. Threat actors are using more sophisticated TTPs to infiltrate our customers. SafeGuard Cyber’s contextual analysis provides the event correlation and detections needed to align with our customers’ key business initiatives. SafeGuard is exactly the kind of partner we need to solidify the trust of our customers.”
