PSA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH SEAGATE® FOR MANAGED SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER (MSSP) PROGRAM

WESTMINSTER, CO –  October 2, 2019 – PSA (www.psasecurity.com), the world’s largest consortium of professional systems integrators, today announced the addition of Seagate Recovery Services to the partners in its Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program. The MSSP program is designed to help systems integrators diversify their service offerings and realize the full potential and benefits of a managed services business model.

“Seagate Recovery Services is a wonderful addition to our vendor line up as the Seagate Rescue product accounts for the data recovery services that are so necessary to the success of any managed services program,” said Dan Dunkel, managing director of PSA’s MSSP program. “The reality is, twenty-five percent of PC users lose data annually, so Rescue is a product everyone needs to help avoid negative ramifications.”

With Seagate Rescue, businesses get their critical data back as soon as possible without having to recreate it. The user simply sends the hard drive to Seagate Recovery Services and their team performs data recovery services on the drive in a secure, clean lab. The recovered data is then encrypted on a new drive and sent back to the user.

“PSA customers understand the value of what they store on their systems. We are excited that Rescue Data Recovery Service Plans will offer an extra level of protection for their data,” said Paul Steele, general manager of Seagate Recovery Services.

PSA’s MSSP program will hinge on uniting industry-leading partners in cybersecurity and cloud-based security solutions, offering training and certification opportunities and financing options with assistance from PSA. Other partners include:
