Partnership with Fokus MSP

Neue Distributionspartnerschaft mit Fokus MSP

Lywand signs distribution partnership with Fokus MSP

Full support for MSPs in the consulting and procurement process

Lywand, provider of automated security audits for SMEs, has entered into a distribution partnership for the DACH region with the distributor Fokus MSP. With lywand's IT infrastructure scans, the partners intend to simplify the consulting and procurement process for MSPs as well as IT service providers, resellers, and system houses undergoing the transformation to this within the framework of a consumption model.

The SaaS solution developed by lywand examines the IT environment of companies and generates an easy-to-understand “renovation plan” with the necessary measures to eliminate identified weaknesses. Depending on the results, these range from simple configuration adjustments to concrete product recommendations. Lywand has launched its channel-exclusive SaaS solution 2021. In addition to the value-added distributor Nuvias, lywand now works with 35 channel partners.

Fokus MSP is now offering the service as a consumption model: IT service providers who offer lywand's service can use it on-demand for their customers.

Consumption model for IT service providers

“The consumption model creates the highest possible added value for IT service providers,” explains Tom Haak, CEO and co-founder of lywand.

“For their customers, they can efficiently check the quality of IT security thanks to intelligent automation and act promptly, as both the consulting and procurement processes are improved. We are very excited that Fokus MSP is going on this path with us.”

“Lywand's security audits are a solution that we assess as MSP-ready: For new customers, it forms a suitable starting point for further cooperation; for existing customers, it supports optimisation. In addition, lywand helps MSPs build straightforward processes, which is fully in line with our standards.”
