Kaseya Buys The Security Specialist RocketCyber
Kaseya, the IT management software company, has bought the managed security operations platform RocketCyber, continuing Kaseya’s strategy to invest in its platform. The acquisition will allow Kaseya to make RocketCyber cloud-agent security operations centre (SOC), available on the Kaseya IT Complete Platform. Kaseya’s CEO Fred Voccola, had indicated at the start of the year that they planned to make a series of acquisitions during 2021, to add more depth to the security area, which has become one of the main areas of business for MSPs during the coronavirus pandemic.
This will allow Kaseya customers, who already benefit from identity and access management, dark web monitoring, compliance management, network assessment, BDR and security awareness training, access to RocketCyber’s experts, who will monitor IT environments without the cost and complexity of disparate data systems.
Kaseya plans to invest in Dallas based RocketCyber and build a second security operations centre in Miami with a third site in Dublin. There has been countless stories recently of data breaches and ransomware strikes and IT providers need to give customers the protection they need to combat this, by providing advanced security protection which Kaseya’s acquisition will provide. A fifth of MSP clients are now very hyper security conscious and need added protection, especially as so many users are working away from their offices at the moment.
RocketCyber’s managed SOC service comprises of breach detection, threat hunting, realtime monitoring of Microsoft 365 email with log monitoring for Windows and macOS endpoints and firewalls on both Azure Active Directory and Office 365 environments. This allows subscribers to have security analysts check their devices for any compromised threats and remove any vulnerabilities and then restore their network access once a device is made safe.
With RocketCyber, Kaseya has now added the go-to security solution to its IT Complete suite, giving their MSP customers security protection.
