Red Canary Launches Partner Program to Meet Demand for Security

Red Canary, a managed detection and response (MDR) provider, has launched its Red Canary Partner Connect, a partner program to address its ecosystem and arm partners with the tools to identify, investigate and triage threats.

The program will connect a group of businesses that organizations rely on to protect themselves and respond to breaches. In addition to more than 30 existing partners, new partners include Charles River Associates, Antigen Security, Brown & Brown Insurance and Jamf.

As cyberattacks grow in sophistication and volume, it’s essential that businesses can ensure no threats slip through the cracks. And it’s not just those breached who are impacted, as cyberattacks kickstart a trickle-down effect to cyber insurance carriers, brokers, incident response firms and MDR providers.

As a result, the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for MDR Services estimates that 50 percent of organizations will use MDR services by 2025, and the MDR market will reach $2.15 billion in revenue by the same year.

The Red Canary Partner Connect program has five categories:

  • Technology Partners – technology integration with Red Canary’s security platform
  • Incident Response – MDR support for short-term breach investigations
  • Managed Service Providers – leverage Red Canary MDR to provide Managed Security Services to end-user customers
  • Insurance and Risk – referral relationship for insurance carriers and brokers with Red Canary, or Red Canary MSSPs
  • Solution Providers – option for traditional resellers to resell Red Canary

The program provides a multitude of benefits to partners tailored to their industry, including the opportunity to co-sell, re-sell or refer, and is suited to MSPs wanting to offer more advanced security services without building and managing their own SOC.

MSPs meeting minimum size requirements also have the flexibility to act as distributors, aggregating licenses on behalf of smaller MSPs.

Unlike other partner programs that do a disservice to their partners by signing up dozens in a particular geography, Red Canary Partner Connect limits partner onboarding and provides specified account managers to each partner.

The new partner program arrives alongside the launch of new threat investigation and active remediation capabilities to provide customers with beyond-the-endpoint detection.

The proactive, tailored approach to MDR will allow customers and partners to find and address threats before they cause business harm.
