Cynet has announced a new Global Partner Program to help channel sales organizations leverage the company's AutoXDR extended detection and response (XDR) security platform to boost their profits, according to a prepared statement.

The Global Partner Program spans North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. It provides pricing, discounts and resources "aimed at streamlining the partner journey to reduce operational and buying costs," Cynet noted. In doing so, the program supports Cynet's channel-first business model.

Cynet Partners with TD Synnex, Bolsters XDR Platform

The Global Partner Program launch comes after Cynet announced a partnership with IT distributor and solutions aggregator TD Synnex. This partnership expands the distribution of Cynet's AutoXDR platform, the companies said.

Previously, Cynet released version 6.4 of AutoXDR in June 2022. The updated platform features pre-built investigation playbooks and allows end-users to build custom investigation workflows that can be tailored to any type of security alert, the company said. It also offers cloud security posture management (CSPM) for Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments.

A Closer Look at Cynet

Cynet offers AutoXDR, an automated security platform backed by a managed detection and response (MDR) service. Along with AutoXDR, Cynet provides the following security platforms:

  • Protector for threat prevention and detection and IT and security operations
  • Responder for automated threat investigation and response
  • Correlator for log management and security event correlation
  • CyOps for continuous threat monitoring and response

MSSPs and MSPs can join Cynet's Global Partner Program to integrate Cynet's security platforms into their offerings. That way, they can use these platforms to prevent, detect, investigate and respond to threats across their customers' environments, the company said.

Meanwhile, Cynet reported 200% growth in its active partner base between October 2021 and October 2022. It continues to explore ways to expand its partner base.
