ADNET Technologies Spins Out MSSP MachBlue Defense

ADNET Technologies, a Top 250 Public Cloud MSP, has spun out an MSSP business that will provide "Blue Team" cybersecurity services.

The MSSP, MachBlue Defense LLC, will be led by ADNET co-CEO Christopher Luise. It will help organizations develop, implement and manage their security infrastructure, according to a prepared statement.

ADNET launched MachBlue to address cyber threats targeting organizations that manage sensitive data or operate critical infrastructure, ADNET said. MachBlue will support organizations of all sizes and across all industries.

MachBlue gets its name from its ability to provide "Blue Team" security solutions at "Mach" speed, ADNET stated. It will provide monitoring, management, risk analysis, compliance and incident response services backed by a 24/7 security operations center (SOC).

In addition, MachBlue will partner with IT firms and consultancies and customers that have existing relationships with MSPs, ADNET noted. It also is recruiting cybersecurity professionals to grow its team.

What Does MachBlue Mean for ADNET?

ADNET is prioritizing the delivery of certified, credentialed and specialized services via MachBlue, the company indicated. It will ensure MachBlue can provide security services to meet the needs of global organizations.

Furthermore, MachBlue will provide ADNET with opportunities to partner with other IT providers to implement cybersecurity systems for global organizations, MachBlue Director of Operations Tim Weber stated. It will promote collaboration among IT providers, so they can work together to uncover ways to protect organizations against evolving cyberattacks.

ADNET offers cybersecurity services designed to help organizations assess and improve their security strategies. It also provides managed IT and cloud services.
