Sherweb Adds MDR Solution to Microsoft Partner Offerings

Sherweb is taking another step to support smaller managed service providers whose customers' security expectations sometimes outstrip their MSPs' in-house capabilities.

The Sherbrooke, Quebec-based cloud solution provider (CSP) this week rolled out Office Protect Alliance, a managed detection and response (MDR) solution. The new service gives Sherweb's partners access to a security operations center staffed by security analysts who monitor the partners' clients' activity.

"We do the tedious work of analyzing every situation, eliminating false positives, and researching the required information affordably," said Guillaume Boisvert, director of product innovation at Sherweb, in a statement. "That way, partners can do the hero work of intervention for their clients, fully briefed and ready to go."

The service builds on the philosophy behind Sherweb's first security product -- Office Protect. The Office Protect tool was designed to help partners quickly and easily configure their clients' Office 365 environments to greatly improve the baseline security without needing extensive security expertise.

According to Sherweb, Office Protect Alliance is the first in a planned series of cybersecurity services to support Microsoft cloud-based applications.

Sherweb is one of a few dozen indirect providers in Microsoft's CSP program. In the program, indirect providers, like Sherweb, obtain Microsoft cloud subscriptions from Microsoft and bundle them with other services and support for distribution to a large network of smaller CSP/MSP partners who work directly with their own customers.
