Founded in 1874, ADT has long been synonymous with security. A new strategic partnership with SonicWall further expands the Florida-based company’s footprint into cybersecurity.
In a public release, “ADT Selects SonicWall as Exclusive Provider of Managed Cybersecurity Service Offering for SMBs,” the companies announced their plans to offer an exclusive managed security offering to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB).
“The financial impact of a cyberattack can easily result in a company closing its door,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner in the official release. “As these threats evolve, so must the tactics we employ to protect organizations of all sizes. Their No. 1 focus should be on their business needs and operations, not on looming online threats.”
With SonicWall, ADT will deliver managed cybersecurity to SMBs much in the same manner as they simplify physical home security for the consumer market. This turn-key approach will make it easy and affordable for SMBs to protect their networks, data, email and brand — all for a single monthly price.
“For more than a century, ADT has been monitoring and responding to emerging threats for our customers. We will continue to do so with the help of cybersecurity pioneers like SonicWall … ”
