London, UK, 22nd August 2022
CMS Distribution is excited to announce the launch of CMS “Attack Surface Management” Cloud Service Powered by GuardYoo.
GuardYoo is a highly respected cybersecurity company with extensive experience in delivering critical security assessment projects for many high-profile organisations and industries across the globe. With increased attacks from hostile entities, traditional cybersecurity and, specifically, internal risk assessments have been a manual, time-consuming and resource-intensive process.
GuardYoo’s approach in automating risk assessment allows organisations to reduce their attack surface to a minimum. GuardYoo delivers a self-service style assessment platform that allows partners to create, execute and analyse cybersecurity assessments on their clients’ infrastructure. This solution can be augmented with additional services, such as penetration and security testing and digital forensics and threat intelligence if deeper situational awareness is needed when any previously undetected threats, risks or evidence of adversaries within the client’s infrastructure are identified.
As a hosted service, CMS Cloud Service Powered by GuardYoo helps partners ensure that the highest levels of “Attack Surface Management” are maintained. The platform is regularly used by experienced “First Responders” when it comes to the most advanced and malicious cyber-attacks. CMS Cloud Service Powered by GuardYoo has pioneered the automation of “Attack Surface Management”, Artefact Analytics and Forensic Reporting and its primary purpose is to strengthen organisations’ resilience against vulnerabilities and cyber threats whilst enabling their growth and reaching their full business potential.
With expert knowledge and experience in cybersecurity, GuardYoo’s research and expertise have been internationally recognised, allowing collaboration not only with partners and their clients but also with many international think-tanks and institutions of higher learning. CMS and GuardYoo are both viewed as trusted advisors within the IT industry and offer the highest levels of service and knowledge to both partners and their clients.
“CMS is delighted to have penned an agreement to provide GuardYoo’s pen testing and security services under our “CMS Powered by” brand. Our partners look to us to provide innovative new products and services, and adding GuardYoo strengthens that considerably,” said Nick Bailey, Alliance Director at CMS Distribution.
Darren Sexton, GuardYoo’s Chief Executive Officer, stated “It’s a real pleasure for us at GuardYoo to partner with CMS Distribution who have a strong history of delivering value-added services to their channel. Through our partnership with CMS, we are able to provide cybersecurity partners with a sophisticated Attack Surface Management platform to help their clients accurately identify and remediate previously undetected vulnerabilities.”
CMS Distribution and GuardYoo take great pride in seeking out innovative technologies that deliver practical, cost-effective solutions. GuardYoo’s frontline experience in cyberwarfare, combined with CMS’ value-added offerings, will enable partners to design and execute custom cyber strategies for their clients.
