Cisco Systems Inc. has introduced a tool that lets MSPs provision and administer a range of security products from directly within the ConnectWise Manage PSA system.
Called the ConnectWise Advanced Security Dashboard, the new system arms channel pros to deliver managed security services based on Cisco’s Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints, Umbrella, and Stealthwatch Cloud solutions, as well as the vendor’s Adaptive Security Appliances, Next-Generation Firewall, and Cisco Meraki MX appliances.
San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco positions the dashboard as a complement to ConnectWise Unite, the centralized portal for managing cloud-based solutions that ConnectWise introduced—alongside a strategic partnership with Cisco—last November.
