Proficio Achieves Modern Compute and Identity Behavior Monitoring Specialization Distinctions in the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency

CARLSBAD, CA – July 26, 2022 – Proficio, a leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service provider, announced today that it has achieved both the Modern Compute and Identity Behavior Monitoring specialization distinctions in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 MSSP Competency. These new distinctions recognize that Proficio has successfully met both AWS’s Level 1 Managed Security Services baseline requirements and additional technical and operational requirements for providing customers with a deep level of modern computing and identity behavior monitoring security services uniquely designed for AWS environments.

AWS launched the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency to enable customers to easily acquire ongoing security monitoring and management, validated by AWS. AWS security experts annually validate the tools used and operational processes of each MSSP address specific cloud security challenges such as continuous event monitoring, triaging, AWS service configuration best practices, and 24/7 incident response. The AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency provides a faster and easier experience for customers to select the right MSSP to help them achieve their goals for business risk and cloud strategy confidence.

Achieving the Modern Compute and Identity Behavior Monitoring specialization distinctions in the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency differentiates Proficio as an MSSP and AWS Partner with 24/7 managed cloud security skillsets to earn the distinction of Level 1 MSSP with specialized modern compute and identity behavior monitoring services.

“Proficio is proud to achieve both the Modern Compute and Identity Behavior Monitoring specializations, in addition to our AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency status,” said Tim DeMarco, Sr. Director of Partnerships at Proficio. “These specializations continue to demonstrate the dedication of Proficio’s teams to keeping our clients’ cloud infrastructures and critical data safe. We are pleased to be one of the first to provide these capabilities for enterprise customers.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Proficio delivers an array of security services on AWS, including 24/7 security monitoring, incident alerting, and response capabilities from our global network of Security Operations Centers (SOCs). The company’s team of security experts help customers to reduce risk, meet their security and compliance goals and maximize the value of their AWS infrastructure. As a dedicated AWS Partner, Proficio has also joined the AWS Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate program, a recognition of the confidence and focus to collaborate in the AWS Partner co-sell program. In addition, Proficio was also a launch Partner for the MSSP solution area in AWS Marketplace.

“Proficio has been a pleasure to work with, and that is saying a lot for a tech company,” said Carlos Gomez, Director of IT, Naropa University. “I only get impactful notifications and the support team is always comprehensive in their response. Five stars!”
