New York-based cybersecurity leader Port53 has launched a groundbreaking partner program at the RSA Conference 2024, marking a significant stride in the fight against cyber threats. The program is set to transform Managed Security Operations by making advanced cloud security and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions widely accessible.

Shifting away from traditional MDR systems that depend on cumbersome legacy SIEMs, Port53’s approach is built on Extended Detection and Response (XDR), integrating AI and automation to expedite threat detection and remediation. This modern method not only streamlines incident management but also makes Managed XDR (mXDR) more affordable and efficient.

The partner program is designed to empower partners with a competitive edge, offering them an entry at a more accessible price point to cater to a diverse range of organizations. It includes rewards, incentives, and resources to support security-conscious and cloud-focused technology partners worldwide.

Recognizing the limitations of resource-constrained IT departments, Port53 provides MDR and mXDR solutions based on Cisco XDR to simplify security management, fostering a mutually beneficial partnership that relieves businesses from the need to develop complex solutions in-house.

Matt Baringer, Director of GTM and Partnerships, will spearhead the partner team, driving engagement across various channels, including MSP/MSSP, resale, distribution, and national partnerships. The program offers two tiers:

  • Pro Partners: Access to essential benefits for growth, demand generation, and expansion, including training, co-sell support, discounts, and marketing materials.
  • Premium Partners: Additional perks like the Port53 Pipeline Impact Program and NFR licenses.

Omar Zarabi, Founder and CEO, emphasizes the program’s ease, stating, “Partners can start generating revenue immediately without the need for hardware, training, or specialized security personnel. We fill the knowledge gaps, allowing partners to offer instant protection and profit to customers.”

Port53’s initiative is poised to democratize advanced security solutions, ensuring robust cyber resilience for partners and their clients through a comprehensive SOC-as-a-service model.
