Broadliner Tech Data UK has formed a new partnership with edgescan to offer partners consumption-based vulnerability scanning and penetration testing that can be offered as ‘as -a-service’.

Customers are able to buy the services as they use them, making them simple for partners to offer and sell. Tech Data has already identified a number of potential opportunities through key managed security services partners (MSSPs) and expects to see demand increasing swiftly.

Alison Nixon, director security for Tech Data Advanced Solutions Ireland and UK, said: “one of the constant challenges organisations face with security is knowing where the gaps are in their defences – and no-one wants to discover that the hard way. With edgescan’s solutions and services, backed by Tech Data’s own security expertise and services, partners can offer comprehensive vulnerability management that will identify any possible attack surfaces that cybercriminals could exploit. That has tremendous value for customers – reducing their risk and enhancing their overall security posture. It gives partners huge potential to extend their security services offering.

For edgescan, Tech Data provides the assurance and certainty of being an established value-added distributor in the security market. Tech Data’s security practice team and edgescan will work together to provide the knowledge and support partners need in delivering the company’s industry-leading vulnerability management to enterprise and mid-market customers.

Edgescan is an accurate, complete, and cost-effective, full-stack vulnerability management SaaS solution. It combines highly-advanced scanning technology with custom testing by expert security engineers to provide effective protection. Designed to scale massively, it is already used by some of the world’s largest enterprises.
