Junior tech play, Whitehawk (ASX:WHK) has revealed its new partnership with Tesserent (ASX:TNT), a leading Australian provider of cyber-security products and services.

This collaboration will see TNT’s enterprise-grade cyber-security solution for SMBs, CyberBiz, offered through the WhiteHawk exchange. Here, SMB buyers can seek advice relating to their cyber-security needs and be matched to vendor products based on their risk profile.

TNT is a specialist in managed cyber-security. It manages direct end-customers in Australia while also offering a managed security service to wholesale channel partners globally, enabling them to deliver effective cyber-security management to their end customers.

This makes it a perfect partner for WHK, whose offers online marketplace is a one-stop portal for small and medium-sized companies to access tools for cyber-security.

TNT’s CyberBiz solution is a managed security service specifically designed for SMBs, giving them the same level of cyber-security as large organisations on more affordable terms.

While there are many cyber-security offerings available to SMBs, most require business owners to install and manage the equipment themselves. Under the CyberBiz managed service model, however, TNT monitors and protects its customers’ network, thereby letting them to focus on actually growing their businesses.

“CyberBiz enables small and mid-sized business owners to rest easy, knowing that our team of security engineers are looking after their network security,” said TNT head of sales and marketing, Karen Negus. “The WhiteHawk exchange is a great way for businesses of all sizes to obtain assistance with their cyber security needs.”

Negus continued: “We’re thrilled that the WhiteHawk team understand the immense value CyberBiz can offer SMB customers, and we’re looking forward to partnering with WhiteHawk to drive awareness and adoption of robust cybersecurity solutions within the SMB market.”

WHK CEO, Terry Roberts, said: “Establishing a strategic partnership with Tesserent is a no-brainer for us because it’s been so difficult to find quality cyber-security vendors with effective, easy to purchase, and affordable options for small and medium size businesses.

“We are delighted to bring the CyberBiz solution to the world via our platform which will enable SMBs to help protect their digital assets and prevent online crime and fraud,” Roberts said.

Tesserent’s CyberBiz solution is now available on the WhiteHawk exchange, joining more than 200 vendors and over 500 unique products and services.

Of course, it should be noted here that WHK is still in its early stages and anything can happen, so investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for their portfolio.
