Raleigh, N.C. – June 1, 2022 – SilverSky, a cybersecurity innovator offering powerful managed detection and response (MDR) services, and NRTC, a member-driven and technology-focused organization based in Herndon, Virginia, today announced an agreement to offer cybersecurity services to NRTC members.
Providing its electric and telecom members with a vast array of managed services, NRTC will now add SilverSky’s award-winning MDR services to its portfolio, enabling the cooperative to provide its members with the latest managed cybersecurity services. These services range from managed endpoint protection, multi-factor authentication and security awareness training to vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and email security.
“Accompanying our ongoing emphasis on serving frequently underserved healthcare organizations and educational institutions, this partnership with NRTC helps expand that effort with a distinct focus on the needs of our nation’s rural communities,” said Jason McGinnis, President and COO at SilverSky. “SilverSky’s MDR services are powerful, yet easy to deploy and affordable – offering an appealing mix for NRTC’s members. We look forward to working with the NRTC Managed Services team to provide these valuable services.”
“Our members provide essential electric and telecommunications services to rural America and thus are obvious targets for hackers. It is vital we arm them with comprehensive cybersecurity tools and resources,” said Jon Bartleson, President of NRTC’s Managed Services division. “Cybersecurity is a top priority for our members and staffing for these types of roles is a major challenge. We chose to partner with SilverSky to make sure we could offer comprehensive, affordable managed cybersecurity to our members.”
SilverSky and NRTC will be hosting a webinar for NRTC members on June 7 at 2:00 PM Eastern. NRTC members can register for Managed Cybersecurity made Simple, Affordable & Accessible for Telcos & Electric Cooperatives on the NRTC website, www.nrtc.coop.
