CNS Group to help Partners secure their share of the Cyber Security market.

by Shannon Simpson | Feb 03, 2014

Demand for cyber security services in the UK is growing rapidly. According to a report by the Pierre Audoin Consultants for the Department of Business and Skills, the UK market was worth almost £2.8bn in 2013, and is expected to grow to £3.4bn over the next four years. Yet how end users customer are accessing these services is unclear. Purchasing Cyber Security Services is not straight forward especially when the market is packed with software and hardware vendors selling "silver bullet" solutions.

In order to help this matter CNS Group has created a new Partner Programme to help UK based VARs, VADs, Systems Integrations, ISPs and Hosting/ Datacentre providers access Cyber Security skills on behalf of their customers.

The Programme will provide selected partners with access to the full suite of Cyber Security Services available from both CNS Group companies (CNS Hut3 & CNS Mosaic) including: Penetration Testing, PCI/ ISO/ CLAS Consultancy, Managed Security and Compliance Services, InfoSec Solutions consultancy, Governance, Risk & Compliance Consultancy, Incident Response & Protective Services, Forensic Services, R&D, Threat Analysis.

More and more customers need to find trusted partners to provide Cyber Security Services. The crucial word is "trusted". A good reseller builds this trust with their clients over many years. The CNS Partner Programme is proven to supplement that trust with expertise, systems and accreditation that mean the client can become more secure faster.

We have been working with partner for many years but this is the first time we have put together a comprehensive programme that will give our selected partners the structure, support, pricing and confidence required so that they can increase revenues in the Cyber Security arena without adding to their overheads. We hope that once partners engage with the programme that they will see an easy fit for our Cyber Security Services that compliments their existing portfolio and creates a comprehensive feel to the overall offering of the partner to the customer.

We have created  structure to our services that, where appropriate and applicable, will allow the partner to either White Label our services or leverage our accreditation and experience.

As one of the UK’s leading and truly independent consultancies we at CNS feel that the opportunity of working with Partners under this new regime is a golden opportunity  and win/win for CNS, Partners and customers alike.
