Following integration with SolarWinds N-central last May, Kaspersky has now integrated its cybersecurity solutions with the SolarWinds remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform to help MSPs support smooth operations.
This new development will allow MSPs to deploy and manage Kaspersky’s products for endpoints across all of their customers through a single SolarWinds management console, both on premises and via a SaaS model, while automating regular, routine tasks such as security monitoring and antivirus database updates.
This announcement comes as businesses increasingly demand a specialized level of cybersecurity — solutions robust enough to truly protect their data, save money and reduce the strain on internal resources. Demand and expectations for this are high, putting the added responsibility on MSPs to funnel effort into the daily management of their clients’ cybersecurity needs.
RMM platforms allow MSPs to proactively manage their customers’ IT infrastructure remotely to prevent issues and respond faster. The benefit of a single monitoring and management console is that it allows administrators to automate daily routine tasks, meaning MSPs can make better use of cybersecurity resources within organizations.
This alliance between Kaspersky and SolarWinds will give MSPs the use of Kaspersky’s products and to benefit from automating a wide range of cybersecurity tasks such as monitoring protected devices, checking for updates in the antivirus database and remotely deploying security to new endpoints, all through the RMM platform, the companies said.
SolarWinds MSP’s Marco Muto
“The integration across both SolarWinds MSP RMM platforms with our partner, Kaspersky, is going to give our mutual MSP customers even greater opportunity to further protect their systems and those of their customers,” said Marco Muto, director of business development, SolarWinds MSP. “The SolarWinds Technology Alliance Partner program extends our ability to more rapidly deliver the third-party solutions MSPs need to be efficient and successful, and this is a great example of that.”
Casper Teijema, global partner manager at Kaspersky, says MSPs need to be able to provide cybersecurity services to their customers.
“To achieve this, they need a powerful protection solution which is easy to deliver and manage across multiple clients. This is exactly what Kaspersky is offering with the integration of our endpoint protection products and the SolarWinds MSP RMM platform.”
