Cyren and Carvir Partnership Sees SaaS Web and Email Security Solutions Offered to MSP Partners

Cybersecurity firm Cyren has announced it has formed a new distribution partnership with Carvir that will see the firm’s web and email Security SAAS platforms offered to Managed Service and IT Service Providers.

Carvir is a leading global distributor of monitoring and managed cybersecurity services for the IT services and MSP channel. Carvir already offers a wide range of cybersecurity solutions to MSPs and IT service providers, although there was a gap in its DNS, email, and web security solutions.

Carvir now has more than 500 MSP partners who serve the needs of tens of thousands of business customers by providing managed security services. Over the past eight months Carvir has been searching for a new provider of cloud-based web security services. There was no shortage of powerful web security solutions, but most web security solutions were not MSP friendly, having been developed for enterprises rather than service providers. Many solutions lacked the multi-tenant capability or pricing model required by MSPs.

By adding Cyren to our portfolio, we are delivering a superior security solution to our MSP partners with multi-tenant capability,” said Jay Ryerse, CEO, Carvir.

The new partnership will give CARVIR access to Cyren’s Cloud Security Platform, which includes the Cyren Web Security and Cyren Email Security solutions.

The next generation solutions provide greater protection than legacy gateway solutions which have been shown to be ineffective at protecting organizations from some of the new attack methods now being used by threat actors. The speed at which new variants of ransomware and malware are now being released means advanced security solutions are now needed to block web-based and email-based threats. Security solutions that rely on static signatures are often circumvented.

More than 1.3 billion end users are already protected by Cyren cybersecurity solutions. The partnership will help Cyren to expand its customer base, which already includes some of the biggest brands including Microsoft, Google, and Dell.
