Herjavec, Zones and Other Top Canadian Product Providers Boost Sales with Advisory Services
Getting products into customers’ hands is one thing, but channel partners are finding that wrapping services around those products pay off in the long run.
In 2018, security solution provider Herjavec Group snatches the cybersecurity crown. The company saw an increasing demand for privileged access management services, cloud security services, as well as its new identity management services.
“Managed security services is a big growth engine of the company,” said Ira Goldstein, Herjavec Group’s senior vice-president of field operations. “We see people going to managed services because of the talent shortage in cyber security, also because of the compliance requirements where they need a second set of eyes on their security environment. People just want deep security experts to provide them with that day-to-day monitoring.”
An increasing number of software vendors are turning to Herjavec Group’s for advisory services related to GDPR compliance and privacy assessments. The healthcare sector specifically was heavily underscored, both in operational security and privacy related to the sensitive data.
In the rapidly morphing cyber security sector, Herjavec Group’s outlook for 2019 is vigilance and expansion.
“We’re seeing a lot more targeted attacks, like really focused social engineering campaigns. Business email compromises are a huge risk for a lot of people,” explained Goldstein. “Business email compromises often result in actual money leaving the door. Those campaigns are usually really sophisticated, targeted attacks using social vectors and they seem to be on the rise.”
Throughout the new year, Herjavec Group will continue global expansion and examine its solutions from a global perspective. It already has a base of operations in the UK, and will be looking to dig further into the European market. It’s always looking for new talents and acquisitions, though they’ll be centered around the US market due to an established presence.
