Global security leader Forcepoint today introduced its best-in-class Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program for service providers, distribution partners and other resellers.
With managed services based on the Forcepoint ONE Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, Forcepoint partners can simplify Zero Trust security and gain predictable, repeatable revenue streams through cloud-first, hybrid-ready security.

And every customer we speak to is on a path to SASE, with many looking to MSSPs for pay-as-you-go solutions that stop threats and data loss while letting users access information and apps securely on any device,” said Myles Bray, Chief Revenue Officer at Forcepoint. “Forcepoint ONE allows MSSP partners to fast forward their journey to Data-first SASE through the delivery of security convergence, subscription model and business tools that enable partners to reduce complexity for mutual customers, drive recurring revenue, and quickly scale their service offerings.”
“Forcepoint’s data-centric focus on security aligns with our vision for proactive protection, detection and remediation,” said Raluca Saceanu, CEO of Smarttech247, a Forcepoint partner. “Smarttech247’s hosted and managed services centered on Forcepoint ONE SSE cloud-native and Forcepoint enterprise data security solutions allow today’s enterprises to manage risk holistically and simplify security operations.

As a channel-first company, Forcepoint will help partners quickly incorporate SASE into their services through its MSSP program. Using the Forcepoint management portal, partners can update customer configurations and offer multi-tenant services with a few clicks. Subscriptions with simple billing help providers scale their profitability when end-user licensing needs change. With no significant up-front expenses, partners can offer Forcepoint ONE and Secure SD-WAN solutions quickly over the internet and customers can add more services anytime.
Forcepoint also provides enablement and training support, including channel managers dedicated to building business plans with MSSPs and distribution partners. Additional Forcepoint MSSP benefits to partners include:
