sysob IT-Distribution partners with Skurio to provide Digital Risk Protection for VARs and MSPs in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland

17 October, 2023

With cyber attacks becoming more frequent and more complex, the demand for Digital Risk Protection (DRP) is increasing. According to Future Market Insight, the global DRP market was worth $1 billion in 2022. Skurio can protect organisations of every size against the latest cyber-attacks. 

Many end users are turning to trusted channel partners for new DRP capabilities as they struggle with a lack of expertise and bandwidth within their IT teams.  

sysob IT-Distribution has appointed Skurio, the DRP experts, to enhance their cybersecurity offerings with their DRP platform that includes Cyber Threat Intelligence, Dark Web Monitoring, and Data Breach Detection solutions.  

Skurio’s cybersecurity solution helps organisations identify potential cyber threats and detect data leaks across their digital supply chains. Channel partners can help customers stay ahead of hackers with round-the-clock, automated surface, deep and Dark Web monitoring for their data. When information is found, instant alerts will help them act quickly to mitigate risk and prevent attacks on their customers. 

This exciting new partnership means that sysob IT-Distribution channel partners can offer new cybersecurity solutions and services for use cases including credential monitoring, domain monitoring, supply chain monitoring and VIP monitoring. This protects their customers from threats such as business email compromise, account takeover, and phishing. Additionally, IP address monitoring notifies customers of potential infrastructure attacks. 

Skurio’s CEO Jeremy Hendy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by sysob IT-Distribution as the solution to protect their customers from digital risk. This exciting new relationship will help us accelerate our growth in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets, a key geographical region for us. Adding Skurio to their portfolio allows sysob IT-Distribution partners to extend their customers’ defences beyond their network perimeters, protecting their data from cyber threats wherever it lives.” 

“He adds, “Cyber-related incidents are time-critical, and the faster a threat can be identified, the faster it can be contained. Identifying an external threat or breach is only half the story; hackers are then effectively prevented from mounting further, more sophisticated, and costly attacks once remediated.  

“We are pleased to now be able to offer cybersecurity products and services in the area of ​​digital risk protection to resellers and system houses,” comments Thomas Hruby, Managing Director at sysob. “Through the new partnership with Skurio, we once again demonstrate our ongoing commitment to always providing the most advanced security solutions in our portfolio. In this way, we actively support our partners in further expanding their business and providing their customers with reliable IT security.”
