SonicWall, the trusted security partner protecting more than one million
networks worldwide, announces a strategic partnership with ADT
Cybersecurity, a leading managed security service provider (MSSP), to
provide an exclusive cybersecurity offering to better protect small- and
medium-sized businesses (SMB) from the growing volume of cyberattacks.

“In order to provide security that meets the ever-changing needs of our
customers, we constantly look for new, effective, and affordable options
to expand our security offerings,” said Jay Darfler, ADT SVP Emerging
Markets. “For more than a century, ADT has been monitoring and
responding to emerging threats for our customers. We will continue to do
so with the help of cybersecurity pioneers like SonicWall, that allow us
to deliver proven security solutions with high efficacy and low total
cost of ownership.”

Underpinned by SonicWall technology, ADT will deliver managed
cybersecurity to SMBs, much in the same manner as ADT delivers end to
end physical security solutions for the residential and business
markets. This turn-key approach will make it easy and affordable for
SMBs to protect their networks, data, email and brand — all for a single
monthly price.

“The financial impact of a cyberattack can easily result in a company
closing its doors,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner. “As
these threats evolve, so must the tactics we employ to protect
organizations of all sizes. Their number one focus should be on their
business needs and operations, not on looming online threats. We look
forward to working with a world-renowned security provider to deliver
the necessary tools to protect our customers.”

The exclusive, end-to-end SMB offering will include:

  • Network security via SonicWall TZ series firewalls
  • Secure email via SonicWall Hosted Email Security
  • Encrypted traffic protection via SonicWall DPI-SSL technology
  • 24x7x365 support from ADT
  • Management of routine patching, software updates and firmware
    upgrades via ADT
  • Optional SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with
    patent-pending Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI™) technology

“The Managed Security Services market is growing at a rapid pace as IT
professionals look for outside security expertise to supplement their
internal resources,” said Martha Vazquez, senior research analyst at
IDC. “IDC views small to mid-sized businesses as the sweet spot to
address, as over 50% of these businesses plan to outsource their
security functions to a 3rd party such as an MSSP. These organizations
are becoming more aware than ever of the security challenges as they
become more reliant on the Internet and face ongoing advanced security
threats.”

The two companies will provide proven, high-value managed internet
security services for micro, small and mid-sized businesses and
organizations through coordinated marketing and sales initiatives. ADT
sells SMB Cybersecurity nationwide directly to ADT Cybersecurity
customers.
