K2 Cyber Security, provider of the next generation in application workload protection, announced a partnership with GuardSight, a Top 200 MSSP, cybersecurity operations as a service (SECOPS), and managed detection and response (MDR) company that serves SMBs and enterprises across the U.S.
GuardSight will offer K2’s Security Platform as a key component of its managed threat detection and response, compliance and consulting services. The partnership expands the GuardSight offering by securing its customers with web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks, including OWASP Top 10, memory-based, and zero-day attacks.
According to John McGloughlin, GuardSight Founder, “Our customers are increasingly moving to the cloud and we need to be able to protect their critical web applications against sophisticated attacks.
“With the K2 Security Platform, we can eliminate breaches due to zero-day attacks, detect attacks missed by traditional security tools including Web Application Firewalls, and dramatically reduce security costs.
“These capabilities are a powerful differentiator, and we’re excited to work with K2 to expand our security services for both current and future customers.”
“With more than a decade managing cybersecurity programs for SMBs and large enterprises, GuardSight offers an impressive range of technical breadth and real-world experience protecting customers against cybersecurity threats,” said Monty Venkersammy, Vice President of Channel Sales, K2 Cyber Security.
“We’re pleased to welcome GuardSight as a valuable member of K2’s Partner Success Program and look forward to working with them to successfully protect their customers’ critical applications and workloads.”
