Natively integrated with Microsoft 365, Vade Secure Helps D&H MSPs Better Monetize Seats and Expand Margins Through an AI-Based Email Security Add-on
HARRISBURG, PA – May 14, 2020 – D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announces it has added Vade Secure, a global leader in predictive email defense software, to its growing Cloud Marketplace digital commerce platform. Vade Secure’s dedicated offering for Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) enhances D&H’s suite of hosted solutions for resale, allowing MSPs to deliver additional value, justify higher margins, and affect better monetization of their service offerings.
Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 is an award-winning solution offering sophisticated, AI-powered filters that detect a range of threats, such as malware and cleverly targeted spear phishing attacks. Updated continuously with threat intelligence and user feedback reports from 600 million mailboxes, Vade’s behavioral engine scans emails, URLs, and attachments for new threats and dynamic attacks. A layered approach combines multiple AI technologies, heuristic rules, and human expertise, resulting in a more comprehensive and effective solution.
Vade Secure integrates seamlessly with Microsoft 365 environments via a simple API call and can be deployed in minutes, without changing the client’s MX record. Because it sits inside Microsoft 365, there is no user experience change or external quarantine required, and Vade scans intracompany email to protect against insider attacks.
Enhancing Sought-After Hosted Services
Demand for cloud services continues to grow, especially as companies have been compelled to transition their workforces to virtual platforms. These newly-established telework environments require hosted provisions such as cloud-based storage, collaborative solutions, and stringent security, as hackers look to exploit increased traffic on under-protected home networks. Vade Secure’s robust email defense solutions are a critical addition for partners looking to enhance value, especially during periods of social distancing and widespread virtual collaboration.
D&H’s Cloud Solutions include the “Success Path to Cloud” and XaaS partner enablement programs, which offer support, guidance, and resources to make sure MSPs can make a successful transition to an Everything-as-a-Service, or “XaaS,” model. D&H’s offering features an intelligently designed series of Cloud Clusters, or hosted solutions grouped around pillars such as Microsoft 365, Microsoft Azure, and ConnectWise Manage.
The D&H XaaS program allows MSPs to easily bundle managed services, these cluster solutions, and the MSP’s choice of hardware into a flexible monthly payment model for their customers, all while accelerating their own cash flow. In addition, D&H is facilitating deferred payment options in the XaaS program, allowing partners to support urgent technology deployments and remote workforce solutions critical to success in the current healthcare and economic environments.
“As the market evolves, partners who have diversified with a range of vital cloud-based services will prove to be the most resilient, even in challenging situations,” said Jason Bystrak, vice president of D&H’s Cloud Business Unit. “Vade Secure provides a unique, industry-leading hosted email detection platform with advanced protection against malicious activity. They complement our suite of Microsoft 365-based solutions, fitting squarely into D&H’s portfolio of intelligent cloud solutions as a high-value add-on for our partners’ portfolios.”
“Vade Secure is excited to partner with D&H and watch our community of MSPs, admins, and end users continue to grow,” said Georges Lotigier, CEO at Vade Secure. “The value of Vade is that the community not only benefits from our technology, they actively participate in making it stronger by reporting suspicious emails. By bringing AI and humans together in a mutually reinforcing environment, Vade offers the most complete protection against advanced threats, in a solution that’s purpose-built for busy managed service providers.”
