Guardz launches in Australia and New Zealand

Israeli cybersecurity startup Guardz, which targets small businesses with an offering that includes cybersecurity protection and insurance, announced its launch in Australia and New Zealand.

The Guardz solution will be distributed through a partnership with Australian-owned and operated IT cloud solution company Manage Protect, which serves over 300 managed service providers. MSPs will be able to manage their clients’ end-to-end cybersecurity with automated detection and response capabilities.

“As the backbone of the Australian economy, SMBs are crucial to ensuring the cyber posture and operation of the country. There is no better way to protect SMBs than by reaching them through their valued MSPs, and we are delighted to have joined forces with Manage Protect to make our shared mission of unified cyber protection a reality for these millions of businesses.” – Dor Eisner, CEO and Co-Founder of Guardz.

“As an Australian company, we are proud to empower local businesses through technology. We have long searched for a product that would offer our customers comprehensive and accessible cybersecurity, and we’ve found that in Guardz’s unique, holistic solution. Working together with the Guardz team, we have localised the platform for our market with 100% local technical support, billing (AUD), training, certification, and the recently deployed data centre to serve our region. We are excited to be working with local MSPs to enable and empower them to Manage & Protect their customers and deliver them the peace of mind they deserve efficiently and cost effectively.” – Andrew Johnson, Managing Director and Founder of Manage Protect.
