Zomentum Adds Center for Internet Security Assessment Tool to Sales Automation Platform

Providing access to the CIS security controls compliance tool from within its solution, the vendor says, will help channel pros develop detailed and comprehensive client recommendation reports more rapidly. By Rich Freeman

Zomentum has added a security assessment tool from the Center for Internet Security (CIS) to the library of IT assessment tools in its sales management and automation platform for MSPs. 

The CIS Controls Self-Assessment Tool, as its formally known, is a free web application designed to help IT professionals track and prioritize implementation of CIS’s recommended security controls. Combining that system with the risk diagnostic functionality already in Zomentum’s software empowers channel pros to develop detailed and comprehensive client recommendation reports more rapidly, according to Product Manager Ben Spector.

“CIS has assembled the expertise of internet security experts all over the world into an actionable security assessment tool that takes the guesswork out of recommending cybersecurity measures to customers,” he said in prepared remarks. “By adding the CIS security assessment to the Zomentum Sales Acceleration Platform, our IT channel customers no longer have to log into a separate security assessment tool, making it faster and easier to identify and monetize opportunities to deliver high-value cybersecurity services to their business clients.”

Zomentum plans to build the CIS assessment tool for U.K. Cybersecurity Infrastructure & Security Agency (CISA) Cyber Essentials into its product in the future as well.

In September, the company integrated its solution with Connect Booster’s managed services payments service to enable sales prospects to accept quotes and pay for goods and services online using credit cards or ACH.

That announcement came three months after Zomentum Channel Chief Ted Roller told ChannelPro that new integrations would be among the primary ways the company spends the $13 million in seed funding it received this February and the $4.1 million it raised last July.
