Windstream Enterprise creates revamped partner program.

Forcepoint partners have access to the company’s new MSSP program for service providers, distribution partners and other resellers.

The MSSP program is centered on the Forcepoint One security service edge (SSE) cloud-based platform. It will help MSSPs deliver comprehensive security solutions to their customers.

Forcepoint partners can simplify zero-trust security and gain predictable, repeatable revenue streams through cloud-first, hybrid-ready security. Forcepoint One also allows partners to differentiate their security offerings with data-first secure access service edge (SASE), integrating SSE with connectivity through FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN solutions.

Forcepoint MSSP partners can help enterprises and government agencies turn security into a competitive advantage. They’ll do so by increasing productivity, streamlining costs and simplifying regulatory compliance.

Key Benefits for Forcepoint Partners

Fady Iskander, Forcepoint‘s head of global channel programs, said one of the key benefits of the Forcepoint One program is that it allows MSSPs to offer their customers a comprehensive security solution that covers all key aspects of their network and data protection.

This means customers can rely on their MSSP to provide them with a single point of contact for all their security needs, he said. That makes it easier for them to manage their security posture and stay protected against the latest threats.

“The Forcepoint One program also allows MSSPs to offer their customers a range of pricing and packaging options, making it easier for them to find a solution that suits their specific needs and budget,” Iskander said. “This flexibility allows MSSPs to tailor their offerings to meet the unique needs of each of their customers, ensuring that they are getting the best possible value for their investment.”

Helping Forcepoint Partners Incorporate SASE

Forcepoint will help partners incorporate SASE into their services through its MSSP program. Using the Forcepoint management portal, partners can update customer configurations and offer multitenant services with a few clicks.

Subscriptions with simple billing help providers scale their profitability when end-user licensing needs change. Partners can offer Forcepoint One and Secure SD-WAN solutions over the internet and customers can add more services anytime.

Forcepoint also provides enablement and training support, including channel managers dedicated to building business plans with MSSPs and distribution partners.

Additional Forcepoint MSSP benefits to partners include:

  • A single set of policies for securing remote, hybrid and office workers.

  • Strong zero trust data security delivered with a cloud-native SASE architecture.

  • Global availability with 300-plus points of presence for managed devices and agentless support for BYOD.

  • Cost-competitive, higher-margin services.

“Whether you are an MSSP looking to expand your offerings, or a customer looking for a reliable and comprehensive security solution, the Forcepoint One program is definitely worth consideration,” Iskander said.
