Red Piranha, Australia's leading developer and manufacturer of advanced cybersecurity solutions, has announced the launch of their 'Partner Assurance Program.’ A new initiative developed to provide a level of assurance for our products and services delivered to end-customers in relation to ensuring that our Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) overall data security, compliance are meeting industry best practice, thus reducing their vendor risk and strengthening their cyber supply chain risk management (SCRM).
Over the last three years, we’ve seen a steep growth in sophisticated cyberattacks and network compromises involving clients of MSPs, with the MSP acting as the initial vector to their client’s network compromise. The devastating Kaseya cyberattack serves as a clear reminder that third party processes can breach even the most refined security defences.
To provide a level of confidence and improve the overall standards of cybersecurity with our Partners, we have developed the Partners Assurance Program. We will work alongside our Partners and assist them in managing the supply chain risk they pose as a vendor to their clients by developing a holistic security program that uses a defence-in-depth approach integrating compliance policies and security controls within an information security management system.
Our comprehensive program is based upon the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO) and the Australian Federal Government’s Essential Eight, so our partners can understand the security standards they're expected to meet. It also provides confidence that our Risk Management Assessments are conducted uniformly.
The work we do is vital, so we require our partners to have the highest security, compliance, and privacy standards. That’s why we’ve implemented this program, to ensure that our partners are operating in a manner consistent with security best practices and abiding by federal, state laws, rules, and compliance.
When you are a Crystal Eye XDR customer serviced by one of our Premium Partners who has achieved accreditation of our ‘MSP Partnership Assurance Program’ you can be confident that they have met the highest standards of cybersecurity compliance and knowledge standards.
Our Partners will benefit from being included in the secure supply chain initiative provided by the program, with Red Piranha being able to include them in contracts requiring high assurance levels. One example of this is the recently released Defence Industry Security Program contractor channel, with Red Piranha providing a high level of assurance on service delivery to the Australian Defence Industry contractor network.
