After Nines Inc., parent of ChannelE2E, today unveiled the company's next major IT media site: MSSP Alert, the global voice for Managed Security Service Providers. 

MSSP Alert’s exclusive cybersecurity content empowers MSSPs, cybersecurity professionals and the IT channel ecosystem (VARs, MSPs, CSPs, ISVs) to build or partner their way to managed security success. The ultimate goal for MSSP Alert's audience: Safeguard customer assets. Launch sponsors include AppRiver, ConnectWise, Cylance, SonicWall and Sophos.

“Effective cybersecurity is the single most pressing issue facing businesses worldwide,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As cyberattacks and ransomware proliferate and escalate, MSSPs are the go-to partners that safeguard the digital economy. Now, MSSP Alert is the go-to resource for MSSPs and those seeking their protection.”

Driven by Content Czar Joe Panettieri, MSSP Alert’s news analysis, insights, research and databases serve:

  1. Established MSSPs that are seeking timely updates about cybersecurity trends, breaches, regulations, business opportunities, technologies and partnerships.
  2. Emerging MSSPs that need guidance as they build their security practices, business models, security operations centers (SOCs), and associated service catalogs.
  3. Channel partners, VARs, MSPs, IT service providers, IT professionals and organizations seeking to partner with established MSSPs.
  4. Cybersecurity professionals and businesses that safeguard customer assets.
