CI Security to Protect & Defend SMB Suite’s Customers


Seattle, WA — September 22, 2020 — SMB Suite is now working with CI Security®, a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services provider specializing in protecting the networks of critical infrastructure, essential organizations, and mid-market companies, to protect and defend customers from cyber-attacks.


Together, the two companies will help customers evolve every part of their security program, from day-to-day threat investigation to scheduled assessments and technical testing. CI Security offers a suite of services that allows organizations to get critical insight into what’s threatening their network environments. SMB Suite offers business software solutions to growing businesses throughout the United States.


Teaming up with CI Security allows SMB Suite to offer to their customers top-notch security operations and staffing solutions that typically only large companies have been able to afford.
