DENVER, March 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pax8, the best place to buy cloud solutions, today announced a new partnership with Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader protecting more than 500 million systems across 150 countries, to deliver Bitdefender Cloud Security for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) including advanced prevention, detection, and automatic response layers to partners across North America.

“Touted as the world’s best antivirus by security software testing, we are thrilled to offer our partners Bitdefender Cloud Security for MSPs and add-on products,” said Ryan Walsh, chief channel officer at Pax8. “As cyberattacks continue to rise, it is critical for partners to provide robust cloud security stacks to their clients. With the addition of Bitdefender’s cloud security solutions—custom-built for the MSP—partners can fully protect customers against ransomware, zero-day malware, fileless attacks, and other sophisticated threats with one agent, managed from a single console.”

Bitdefender won AV-Comparatives’ Product of the Year award last year for the fourth time, racking up more wins than any other firm in the past 10 years. The latest award comes after Bitdefender earned the maximum Advanced+ ratings in tests conducted throughout 2019 covering Malware Protection, Performance, Advanced Threat Protection, and other categories.
