Continuum Unveils Compliance and Cloud Enhancements for Security Portfolio

September 26, 2018

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 26, 2018--Continuum, the exclusive provider of the only service-enabled technology platform that enables MSPs to scale rapidly and profitably, today announced enhancements to its Continuum Security portfolio. At Navigate 2018, the company’s annual user conference, Continuum unveiled new solutions to help MSPs meet the demands of their clients with regulatory requirements and help secure their cloud-based operations. Continuum also announced the expansion of their newly released Continuum Security into the European marketplace.

The new Compliance Dashboard, part of Continuum Security’s Profile & Protect offering, provides MSPs with key views that enable MSPs to ensure their clients are compliant with critical regulations, starting with HIPAA, and provides easily consumable information to help clients quickly adhere to their audit and self-assessment requirements. These extensions effectively detail adherence to technical compliance requirements and outline any gaps in those requirements, allowing providers to deliver visibility into vital information required in highly-regulated industries.

Continuum is also extending its powerful risk-monitoring capabilities to cloud applications, beginning with support for Microsoft Office365. Office365 serves as a heavily relied upon cornerstone of SMB productivity, but has also developed into a key vector for attackers. The new monitoring capabilities can quickly identify suspicious behaviors, and through investigation via Continuum’s Security Operations Center (SOC), identify and remediate compromised accounts. These added capabilities strengthen Continuum Security’s ability to provide comprehensive risk analysis across multiple environments.

The new solutions add to the comprehensive Continuum Security portfolio, which provides MSPs with purpose built tools and a complete set of services that enable them to meet the complex security and compliance needs of their end-clients in the small to medium business sector. At a time when increasing talent shortages have put pressure on IT service providers seeking to scale their businesses, Continuum Security and the Continuum Security Operations Center (SOC) arm partners with the resources and expertise needed to effectively and efficiently protect their clients.

Continuum has also broadened the reach of Continuum Security solutions, announcing today that Continuum Security is available to European service providers with full GDPR support. European SMB customers continue to show a demand for advanced security, and MSPs can now provide that support with the full suite of Continuum Security offerings available to protect their end-customers from the increasing threat of cybercrime.

“The most important asset our partners need to protect their customers is a security toolset that stays ahead of today’s threats” said Fielder Hiss, vice president of product, Continuum. “These enhancements to Continuum Security keep our providers on the front foot in the fight to secure their clients and keep them compliant with increasing regulatory pressures. This comprehensive suite continues to be the keystone in today’s MSP’s pursuit of new revenue streams and high-value clients.”

“Throughout the development of Continuum Security, we’re listening to the needs our partners have today and anticipating their needs for tomorrow,” said Brian Downey, Senior Director of Product Management for Continuum Security. “In doing so, we recognized the need for greater compliance capabilities and for our cloud monitoring to cover one of the most relied-upon, and heavily attacked, services in small business today, Office365. We’re confident in the enhanced portfolio’s ability to power our partners’ efforts to protect their end-customers from the threats they’re facing.”

The Compliance Dashboard is now available as part of Profile & Protect, and Office365 monitoring is being rolled out across Detect & Respond: Endpoint platforms. European MSPs looking to power their security operations with Continuum Security can learn more about the offering in their region at www.continuum.net/Europe.
