West Sealand Digital to Sell the Overwatch Managed Security Platform-as-a-Service to SMBs in EMEA Countries
CHICAGO & GUERNSEY – September 17, 2019 – High Wire Networks, a leading provider of managed security services based in Chicago, entered into a strategic partnership with West Sealand Digital (WSD), a managed security service provider (MSSP) based in Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands, to launch and deliver High Wire Network’s Overwatch managed security services internationally to small and medium businesses (SMBs) through its network of channel sales partners.
Overwatch by High Wire Networks simplifies cybersecurity by delivering end-to-end protections for an organization’s networks, data, endpoints and users as an affordable monthly subscription service with predictable costs and no capital outlay. Customers get instant access to a scalable, future-proof security platform, including a 24/7 security operations center (SOC), continuous vulnerability assessments, managed secure remote access, security awareness training, real-time patch management and video surveillance.
WSD will leverage the Overwatch by High Wire Networks trade name and managed security platform-as-a-service to build a comprehensive two-tiered sales channel across Europe and the Middle East.
“We’re incredibly excited to team with WSD to bring Overwatch to WSD channel partners and their customers in EMEA,” said Mark Porter, President and CEO of High Wire Networks. “Our security portfolio is built from the ground up to solve a global problem – too many narrow solutions, not enough people to manage them, no integration or centralized visibility. WSD and High Wire Networks share a common vision that we can cut through the confusion and complexity to bring enterprise-class security to the midmarket affordably.”
Significantly, Overwatch customers can choose where their non-privileged log file data resides for analysis either in the U.S. or Guernsey, the sovereign, offshore jurisdiction where WSD is based.
“Overwatch, combined with the benefits of analyzing and storing the log data offshore, is a unique solution for international service providers looking to extend the services they can offer to their clients,” said David Crook, Director at WSD.
“More importantly, Overwatch does not just rely on Microsoft Windows logs nor does it look at a small subset of data, such as insider threats,” Crook said. “Overwatch takes logs from all devices, Windows, Linux, firewalls, etc., as well as ingesting network data from switches and routers, allowing full correlation of events so we can deliver a complete managed security service.”
By tapping into the Overwatch platform, managed service providers (MSPs) can achieve instant scale and immediate ROI, sidestepping the significant investment and time to market required to integrate best-of-breed technology, attract and retain expert security talent, and optimize processes.
“Overwatch redefines the quality of managed services available to the international market with proven security service capability, at the right price,” added Crook.
