DataStream: Cyber Insurance Fuels MSP Sales, Security Posture

5 minute read

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Sept. 9 2022 — Managed service providers across the channel are fast recognizing the protection, partnership and peace of mind DataStream Cyber Insurance is bringing to their businesses — and those of their SMB customers. Attendees at the XChange 2022 conference, hosted by The Channel Company in Denver last month, selected the cyber insurance broker as winner of the 2022 XCellence Award under the Solutions Pavilion Strategy — Event category. The award marks DataStream’s sixth accolade in recent months, including multiple distinctions at industry shows for clearly articulating the MSP’s opportunity, offering a stand-out product/solution and other differentiators.

DataStream’s prowess in protecting SMBs and MSPs from cyberattacks with cyber insurance means covered businesses can enjoy comprehensive benefits that span from pre-breach protective services to post-breach response and remediation.

“Cyber risk is a team sport. It takes the vendors who develop the technology, the partners who install and monitor it, the legal and compliance teams who ensure the right protections are in place, and the insurance company who offer support when the inevitable breach occurs,” said DataStream Channel Chief Larry Meador. “MSPs are the quarterback of this team. They run the plays, but they also call the one-off audible if they don’t like the look of the defensive set. It’s rewarding to see our contribution to the team be recognized and valued.”

“XChange August 2022 was an absolutely massive event, and the vendors that were honored in Denver truly stood out from the crowd,” said Bill Jones, Global, SVP & GM, Connected Technology Communities at The Channel Company. “Our 2022 XCellence Award recipients truly deliver on the demands and promises of a new digital world, helping their channel partners to thrive now and for the long term.”
