PlexTrac’s ability to cover a broad range of cybersecurity management duties helps boost efficiency and communication, allowing MSSPs to service more clients and provide a better customer experience.

FREMONT, CA: A fast-growing cybersecurity software firm driven by a mission to perk up the security posture of organizations and security teams of all sizes, PlexTrac, The Purple Teaming Platform, recently launched a new initiative aimed toward Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). The program will offer a custom price structure, a dedicated account manager, and full access to all of PlexTrac’s cybersecurity workflow and reporting features, making it one of the best cybersecurity workflow and reporting platforms for MSSPs.

PlexTrac has been featured in Enterprise Security Magazine’s “Top 10 Vulnerability Management Solution Providers-2020.” “We are excited to launch this new program, specifically designed with the needs of MSSPs in mind, to help them and their clients realize the full power and value of the PlexTrac platform,” said Dan DeCloss, Founder and CEO, PlexTrac. “We are on a mission to empower teams to win the right cybersecurity battles, and we’re looking forward to working with more MSSPs to help save their teams tremendous time and deliver critical insights so they can better prioritize and resolve the risks their clients are facing.”

Program features include:

MSSP-Friendly Price Structure: Several pricing model alternatives will be offered to meet the needs of a wide range of MSSPs.

MSSP Account Manager: MSSPs will get access to a dedicated account manager with industry experience, as well as an experienced implementation specialist and the PlexTrac customer success team, who will ensure MSSPs get the most out of the platform.

PlexTrac’s ability to cover a broad range of cybersecurity management duties helps boost efficiency and communication, allowing MSSPs to service more clients and provide a better customer experience. PlexTrac’s reporting and communication capabilities for penetration testing and vulnerability assessments are of special importance to the MSSP. PlexTrac streamlines the entire workflow, from aggregating and managing data from all scanner sources through an extensive and customizable writeups database to click-of-a-button exporting.

PlexTrac features that MSSP partners will appreciate include:

• Report formats that can be customized.

• Reports and user interface with a white label.

• A client-facing portal.

In due course, PlexTrac creates value for MSSPs, not only in the suppleness it provides but in the tremendous time savings the platform offers. Arnel Manalo, the cybersecurity architect at Richey May Technology Solutions, said, “After implementing PlexTrac, Richey May performed an analysis on the total time required to complete an engagement and found an average time savings of 18-22 percent.” The cybersecurity industry is perpetually short on time and talent. PlexTrac addresses both by becoming a force multiplier—helping MSSPs focus on the right work and do it more effectively and efficiently.

“One of the biggest challenges facing MSSPs today is the ability to articulate the value of their security services through efficient reporting and remediation tracking,” said Jason. “I joined PlexTrac to help MSSPs alleviate this pain.”

PlexTrac has engaged Jason Kramek to manage the effort to establish the MSSP Partner Program. Since 2014, Jason has been assisting MSSPs and channel partners in getting the most out of the IT security stack. Jason’s most recent role with AlienVault, which AT&T Cybersecurity acquired in August 2018, was instrumental in helping to build one of the most respected MSSP partner programs.
