Beachhead Solutions, a provider of cloud-managed mobile device encryption, security, and data access control, announced at the CompTIA ChannelCon event in Hollywood, Fla., that it is offering 10 free internal licenses of its SimplySecure Management System to any Beachhead partner.

The cloud-based SimplySecure platform secures PCs, laptops, phones, tablets, and USB storage devices by enforcing data encryption and by enabling administrators to remotely delete data and revoke access in the event that a device becomes lost or stolen (or whenever credentials are compromised). For organizations in the healthcare sector covered by HIPAA, the data security provider must legally handle client data in a HIPAA-complaint manner. Beachhead’s SimplySecure platform enables MSPs to secure their client information internally, while complying with industry standards around data security.

“It is important that our partners understand the requirements of HIPAA and other compliance mandates and be able to address themselves internally to put them in a position to better serve their customers, to be knowledgeable about the laws, [and] to be knowledgeable and expert with our platform,” says Cam Roberson, director of the reseller channel for Beachhead Solutions.

The free use of SimplySecure also gives partners the opportunity to become more familiar with the solution and better understand it from a client perspective, which can be valuable in developing expertise as a provider.

“The objective is for them to become knowledgeable experts and to be able to offer that service to their customers... I don't know what it's going to cost [us]. I hope it costs us a whole bunch. But I also hope it extends the platform to a lot of needy SMB firms... I don't view it as a cost almost at all really. It's getting us out there and then ultimately to the end customer who needs it most," adds Roberson.
