Network assessments market leader outlines unique ways MSPs can profit through PCI, HIPAA and other Compliance-as-a-Service offerings
RapidFire Tools Inc., the world leader in non-invasive IT assessment tools, has embarked on a comprehensive schedule of trainings, seminar sessions, trade show appearances and webinars to kick off the fall. These sessions are designed to present managed services providers (MSPs) with new ways to profit from the use of network assessment tools. Throughout September, the company will appear at six separate trade events, host two proprietary webinars, and present four event-based seminar sessions presented by executives from both the sales and software-development sides of the company. The September schedule is the most comprehensive roster of events and presentations RapidFire Tools has offered all year. The series aim to educate the MSP community on how to profit from network assessment tools and grow their businesses.
RapidFire Tools’ training sessions introduce concepts and strategies to MSPs including how to conduct either a HIPAA or a PCI “Compliance-as-a-Service” practice, which can be leveraged in the healthcare and retail markets, respectively. These sessions teach solution providers to pursue opportunities they might not otherwise have been able to accommodate. In addition, seminar sessions focus on how MSPs can use network assessment reports to convert potential leads into new customers, and how to leverage ongoing assessments to enhance their customer relationships.
“We’ve found that the most effective way to make MSPs truly understand the opportunities of network assessment is to explain it to them live, giving them the product and category knowledge to create comprehensive compliance programs for their customers,” said Mike Mittel, CEO and president at RapidFire Tools. “Many solution providers don’t fully understand the benefits of ongoing network assessment reports, which offer clear advantages over other security disciplines such as anti-malware and remote management,” adds Mittel.
“Network Assessments provide a more holistic approach to threat detection, and significantly mitigate risks for their
customers beyond what these other disciplines can accomplish. In addition, ongoing assessments can lead to enhanced customer relationships and increased incremental service revenues as MSPs become a proactive and vested partner for the end-user, one who is able to identify patterns, vulnerabilities and suspicious behavior that can compromise their networks.”
RapidFire Tools will maintain a presence at events from some of the industry’s leading solution provider associations, media companies, and vendors. Presentations and webinars throughout the month will be delivered by RapidFire Tools Vice President of Software Development Win Pham; Vice President of Sales Mark Winter; National Sales Manager Matthew Koenig; and Regional Sales Manager Marlene Mullowney.
