ADT has been providing physical security to businesses and residents for over 145 years. As a leader in security, we’re constantly adapting to meet the needs of our customers and evolving the products and services we offer to stay on the cutting edge of security. This is why ADT Cybersecurity started its Channel Program.
Through our Channel Program, we’re meeting the cybersecurity requirements of small and mid-sized businesses with comprehensive, enterprise-level cybersecurity infrastructure and solutions – at a cost that’s affordable to the SMB market and easy for our partners to incorporate into their RMR service model. Our partnership provides opportunities for partners to grow and scale, while protecting their customers from these threats.
We do all the heavy lifting from our US-based SOC and NOC operations, staffed with diversely skilled and continuously trained cybersecurity experts. We operate as a seamless extension of our partners’ existing teams, equipping them with a portfolio of managed cybersecurity services to protect their customers and their networks. Businesses need a multi-layered cyber defense (aka Defense in Depth) to protect their network from the evolving threats that impact us on a daily basis. The ADT Cybersecurity Partner Program provides layers of security—ranging from proactive and preventative to network monitoring, threat detection and full-scale NOC/SOC operations—coupled with 24/7/365 monitoring by highly skilled professionals. Hackers don’t sleep, and neither do we.
