AV Firm Adds 'S' to MSP Mix

MSPs are the central theme of this blog, but a well-known security software vendor has added another "S" to the managed service equation.

McAfee has launched a Managed Security Service Provider program through its brand-spanking new SecurityAlliance MSSP. The AV software vendor says the program is "tailored to meet the needs of organizations that provide managed security services."
