BlackRidge Cyber Defense, MAD Launching Managed Security Service

BlackRidge Technology and MAD Security (an MSSP) are preparing to provide a fully managed cybersecurity solution for commercial and federal organizations across the United States, according to a prepared statement.

With the strategic partnership, MAD will integrate, deliver and manage a BlackRidge cyber defense solution, BlackRidge Federal Director Scott Armstrong said. In addition, MAD Security will serve as an official reseller and integrator of BlackRidge's adaptive trust solution for cyber defense and provide both consulting and managed security services for BlackRidge products.
