WhiteHawk joins forces with Tesserent to help SMBs prevent cyber crime

TNT is a specialist in managed cyber-security. It manages direct end-customers in Australia while also offering a managed security service to wholesale channel partners globally, enabling them to deliver effective cyber-security management to their end customers.
This makes it a perfect partner for WHK, whose offers online marketplace is a one-stop portal for small and medium-sized companies to access tools for cyber-security.
TNT’s CyberBiz solution is a managed security service specifically designed for SMBs, giving them the same level of cyber-security as large organisations on more affordable terms.

WHK CEO, Terry Roberts, said: “Establishing a strategic partnership with Tesserent is a no-brainer for us because it’s been so difficult to find quality cyber-security vendors with effective, easy to purchase, and affordable options for small and medium size businesses.
“We are delighted to bring the CyberBiz solution to the world via our platform which will enable SMBs to help protect their digital assets and prevent online crime and fraud,” Roberts said.
Tesserent’s CyberBiz solution is now available on the WhiteHawk exchange, joining more than 200 vendors and over 500 unique products and services.
