Flywheel IT Services Partners with Ericom Software to Deliver ZTEdge SASE as a Managed Service that Simplifies Zero Trust Secure Access for UK SMBs
New York, NY and London, England, 15 February, 2022 - Flywheel IT Services, a provider of professional IT and security services and solutions that are tailored to the needs of the small and mid-sized businesses it serves, and Ericom Software, a leading provider of Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions and developer of the ZTEdge™ SASE Platform, today announced that Flywheel IT are leveraging ZTEdge to deliver Zero Trust managed security services to their customers. In addition, Flywheel IT has partnered with Ericom Software to distribute the cloud-based ZTEdge platform for customers with in-house security teams.
Flywheel IT began providing managed security services to customers via the ZTEdge cloud platform in 2021. Customer response has been exciting, with reported improvements in their security posture as well as cost savings over previous solutions.
With the increase in the frequency and severity of ransomware attacks, the need for a Zero Trust security approach via a cloud-first Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform has become vital for organizations of all sizes. Ericom's ZTEdge SASE platform is delivered on the Ericom Global Cloud, which offers simple, fast, local access to the Zero Trust security controls needed to protect today's distributed workforces.
“Service partners like Flywheel IT Services are essential for SME customers who do not have in-house security staff, and therefore rely on our expertise, support and solution recommendations. Through Flywheel IT’s partnership with Ericom, our customers benefit from ZTEdge enterprise class Zero Trust security protections that keeps their networks and users secure, in any location and on any device – and all within a realistic budget,” said Rob Chapman, Corporate Sales Manager, Flywheel IT. “We look forward to further developing our partnership and enabling more customers to start their Zero Trust journeys, with simple to use, effective and affordable cloud services enabled by the ZTEdge security platform.”
Ericom's ZTEdge cloud security platform is the simplest way for midsize enterprises and small businesses to rapidly adopt Zero Trust security principles. ZTEdge provides organizations with an integrated cloud security solution that cuts complexity, reduces cyber-risk, and improves performance, all at a dramatically lower price point than alternative solutions.
The ZTEdge platform includes a broad set of capabilities that support multiple use cases, including ZTEdge Desktop, which secures access to remote desktops, replacing vulnerable RDP/RDS solutions; ZTEdge Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), a secure alternative to VPNs for remote access to internal resources, including networks, applications and data; ZTEdge Web Isolation, remote browser isolation-based web security that protects users and data from ransomware and phishing; and ZTEdge Web Security, which integrates remote browser isolation-based web security with a secure web gateway (SWG).
“Every organisation needs to defend against zero-day exploits, ransomware and phishing by securing internet use. Likewise, enforcing least privilege access immediately improves organisations’ risk posture by limiting each user to only the applications and resources they need,” said Matthew Howes, Ericom Director of EMEA Channels. “We designed ZTEdge specifically to meet the emerging security needs of small and mid-size organizations and their remote users, and are delighted to partner with Flywheel IT to support cloud-based Zero Trust security for companies like these, regardless of whether they choose to manage security in house or opt for externally managed security services.”
