Specialist MSSP for the midmarket is first European Fortinet partner to attain SOC accreditation
1st February 2023 – NormCyber, the award-winning managed security service provider for mid-sized organisations, today announced that it has achieved Security Operations, Operational Technology (OT), and Cloud Security specialisations as part of the Fortinet Engage Partner Programme. NormCyber is the first MSSP in Europe and only one in six firms across the wider EMEA region to achieve all three specialisations, demonstrating its commitment to helping midmarket organisations bolster their cyber resilience with state-of-the-art tools and practices.
A Fortinet partner since 2019, NormCyber has undergone rigorous sales training and multiple technical exams to achieve Advanced status in all three specialisations, proving its ability to deliver the full spectrum of Fortinet’s security solutions with certified staff to handle various implementation requirements.
- With the Security Operations Specialisation, NormCyber is able to demonstrate its deep technical understanding and expertise when it comes to the delivery and operation of Fortinet’s security information and event management (SIEM) , security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) and endpoint detection response (EDR) in the SOC, along with deeper understanding of advanced analytics. Through this, NormCyber can manage security operations in a more efficient way on behalf of customers, allowing for response in near-real time.
- To achieve the Operational Technology Specialisation, NormCyber’s sales and technical teams have demonstrated both a deep understanding of OT best practices and requirements as well as experience of deploying IT and OT security solutions. NormCyber can now help Fortinet customers secure their converged IT-OT networks to close OT security gaps, as well as provide the visibility, control and behavioural analytics they require.
- For the Cloud Security Specialisation, NormCyber has demonstrated its proficiency in managing Fortinet’s portfolio of solutions, helping organisations to securely deploy on any cloud or virtual data centre with consistent policies, centralised management and visibility, security automation and orchestration. NormCyber can help customers better secure their cloud environments, with advanced application and API protection, hybrid security and cloud-native protection.
In a fast-moving industry, specialisations focused on market opportunities enabled by the Fortinet Engage Partner Programme help partners to be recognised and valued by current and potential customers as trusted partners which have the expertise, services and technologies they need to fulfil their business needs.
