So yeah, we’re really good. company LookingGlass Cyber Solutions debuted its first ever partner program targeted specifically at managed security service providers (MSSPs).

Through the new program, LookingGlass partners can provide security-as-a-service solutions and customize threat intelligence services.

“In visiting with all of our solution providers, what became really apparent was the need to have a solution for managed security service providers,” said Laurie Potratz, Vice President of Global Channels and Alliances at LookingGlass.“So in essence, what we did, we created a program that we think is very flexible, designed for people who want to be up and running immediately.”

The program is the brainchild of Potratz, who joined LookingGlass in March. It offers a “pay-as-you-grow” investment plan for service providers.

“It’s based on two very important feeds. One of them is infectious records, and the other one is malicious C2s. What it does is, you can look at the entire map of the world and know exactly where there are threats, where people have been infected,” Potratz said.

“You can zero it down and create a circle of relevance around what’s really important to you, and get right down to the IP address,” she said.

LookingGlass is actively recruiting new partners.
