OpenDNS, a provider of cloud-delivered security, has announced the release of its Partner Enablement Pack, which enables their MSP partners to differentiate their managed service offerings by communicating with their customers more effectively about security and the evolving threat landscape.
“In the increasingly competitive IT space, an MSP needs to be able to communicate beyond feeds, speeds and technology specifications,” said Dmitriy “Dima” Kumets, senior product manager, OpenDNS. “They need to be their customers’ trusted security advisor and must show the value they are providing to the business. The Partner Enablement Pack gives OpenDNS MSP partners pre-built marketing collateral to help them present to their customers about the latest changes in security. It’s a robust collection of content and tools to help them express and elevate the value of their offering.”
OpenDNS’ Partner Enablement Pack provides resources to support Umbrella for MSPs, a cloud-delivered security service that helps MSPs proactively decrease malware infections on customer devices “by over 80 percent.” With fewer infections, MSPs would free up technical resources so that they can focus on growing their businesses instead of reactively putting out fires.
Umbrella’s cloud-delivered security would prevent malware infections without impacting device performance. Umbrella’s multi-tenant dashboard makes it easy to manage many customers with centralized settings and PSA integrations. Umbrella includes desktop, roaming laptop, and also BYOD protection that can be deployed in just minutes.
OpenDNS’ Partner Enablement Pack includes:
- Co-branded PowerPoint deck for explaining security to SMBs
- Co-branded datasheet
- Co-branded Solution Briefs
- “Why antivirus and firewalls are not enough”
- “Securing Guest Wi-Fi”
- “Web Filtering”
- “Cloud Services Report”
- Case studies that they can share with customers in specific verticals
- Messaging framework for MSPs to build their own marketing materials
The Partner Enablement Pack is available to OpenDNS MSP partners as of May 5, 2015.
