BlackBerry Cylance’s Native AI Platform Now Available From SYNNEX-Westcon

NEWS / 05.30.19 / The Cylance Team

BlackBerry Cylance is pleased to announce that its native AI platform is now available to the resellers of SYNNEX-Westcon for purchase as software-as-a-service (SaaS).

SYNNEX-Westcon is a market leader in supporting and enabling the growth of the small-and-medium business (SMB) reseller community across North America. The partnership with BlackBerry Cylance provides an opportunity for more than 8,000 SYNNEX-Westcon resellers to revolutionize their security offerings as the market shifts towards value-based, operating-expense-driven solutions.

“We’re offering a simple, cash-friendly, brandable offering for resellers and managed service providers to help them jump-start their managed security offering,” said Brian Stoner, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances at BlackBerry Cylance.

“In addition, this partnership creates an easy-to-use offering for established BlackBerry Cylance resellers to secure agreements with end-users desiring managed security services.”

Many resellers get requests from SMB customers for managed endpoint security services they cannot afford to build and maintain on their own, and the BlackBerry Cylance MSSP pre-bundled solutions allow partners to easily address this type of customer demand. Customers can get to a state of true prevention with increased protection from the successful execution of cyber attacks without having to hire, train, and retain in-house security specialists.

“We are both excited and humbled by the confidence that BlackBerry Cylance and SYNNEX-Westcon have in our ability to deliver an exceptional MSSP offering,” said Michael Crean, Solutions Granted chief executive officer.

“Solutions Granted has been extremely successful with BlackBerry Cylance solutions to date, because BlackBerry Cylance has revolutionized the endpoint security space with artificial intelligence that has provided SMB customers with optimum outcomes around preventing known and unknown malware and ransomware. This new venture with SYNNEX-Westcon is a game-changer.”  

Solutions Granted is one of BlackBerry Cylance’s first MSSPs to adopt the offering. Solutions Granted customers can benefit from deployment services, tuning, and monitoring by leveraging the BlackBerry Cylance native AI platform. 

“HTS Voice & Data is extremely excited to hear that BlackBerry Cylance will be available for purchase as a service from our valued distributor, SYNNEX-Westcon,” said Lydia McCloskey, help desk manager at HTS VOICE & Data.

“We know that BlackBerry Cylance is an industry leader and is becoming a market driver for AI-driven endpoint security. We have seen the results and reaped the benefits of the countless hours this software has saved HTS in mitigating system disasters caused by viruses, ransomware, and other malicious attacks. We rest easy knowing we are protected by the best.”
