Collabrance, a master managed service provider (MSP), has integrated security information and event management (SIEM) and vulnerability and penetration (VUL/PEN) testing into its master MSSP offering for partners.

Also, MSPs and MSSPs can use Collabrance's master MSSP offering to run VUL/PEN tests to assess customer risks and establish appropriate security measures, the company stated.
