CyberCNS, the vulnerability management technology firm, has rebranded as ConnectSecure and named Peter Bellini its new CEO.

The changes reinforce the company’s position as a “pioneer” in cybersecurity solutions for MSPs working with SMBs. ConnectSecure is establishing U.S. operations in Tampa, Florida.


CyberCNS’ Peter Bellini

With Bellini joining the executive team, ConnectSecure will continue to be an employee-owned company focused on organic, independent growth.

Bellini joined the company in June as vice president of operations. Before that, he was with ConnectWise for nearly eight years. His most recent role was project manager.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in November.

“We are a mission-driven company meeting a critical need,” Bellini said. “A high percentage of cyberattacks target small businesses. But most MSP solutions are designed for large enterprises or have pricing structures that exploit MSPs, rather than help them. This small business cyber gap must be closed. MSPs play a pivotal role. And our team feels a responsibility to give them an affordable solution so they can protect the small businesses that form the backbone of the world’s economy.”

Adding More Resources for MSPs

As CEO, Bellini will spearhead the buildout of U.S.-based customer support and education teams to provide more resources for MSP partners using the ConnectSecure vulnerability management platform. Since launching in 2021, the platform’s user base has grown to more than 1,200 MSPs. They provide cybersecurity services to nearly 20,000 SMBs globally.

ConnectSecure offers PSA integrations with applications such as Slack, Teams, Halo and ConnectWise. It also offers a library of international regulations and compliance protocols, and a multitenant architecture. That allows multiple clients to be managed through a single interface. MSPs can choose from multiple pricing tiers with no contract required and all capabilities provided in a single solution.

Shiva Jagannathan is ConnectSecure’s co-founder.

“We built our platform in partnership with the MSP community and engage with them every week in our Wednesday community meeting,” he said. “That’s how we know we are delivering what they need to protect their clients: a single vulnerability management solution, with a flexible, affordable pricing structure, robust application integration, and the most extensive regulatory protocol library available. When we see other providers essentially price-gouging for separate tools and locking MSPs into multi-year contracts, it just reinforces our belief that we are on a better path.”
