McAfee Managed Service Provider Program (MSP) is designed to support a fast-growing market of midsize- and enterprise-class customers seeking to maximize their network security through managed services.
As customers are looking for more options in the way they purchase and manage technology, the McAfee Managed Service Provider (MSP) program gives partners the ultimate flexibility in the deployment of security products and services. Either on-premises or cloud based, McAfee MSP partners will have a security offering for virtually every customer requirement via a monthly subscription-based, pay-as-you-go model.
McAfee has been in the managed services business for more than a decade. The newly expanded MSP program offers a consistent global framework that can be scaled through distribution, providing partners with access to the industry’s broadest, most advanced security protection available. By bundling McAfee solutions into a partner’s existing value-added services, a MSP can become a trusted advisor to remotely monitor and support customers while maintaining control over partner branding, licensing, reporting, billing, and pricing.
The McAfee MSP program offers protection for endpoints, servers/networks, virtual environments, and mobile devices, in addition to the industry’s most expansive security SaaS portfolio, which can all be managed centrally through either McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software or the McAfee SaaS management console. The simplicity of centralized security management allows for remote administration of McAfee software and SaaS solutions, reducing MSP resources necessary to manage multiple customers.
