Beachhead Solutions Offering Free Internal Licenses to Any Beachhead Partner

Now MSPs Using Beachhead's SimplySecure Platform Can Encrypt and Secure Data on Their Own PCs for Free

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 2, 2016) - Beachhead Solutions, provider of cloud-managed mobile device encryption, security and data access control for businesses of all sizes, today announced that the company is offering ten free internal licenses of its SimplySecure Management System to any Beachhead partner. Beachhead Managed Service Providers (MSP) now have the ability to use SimplySecure internally to manage PC encryption on their own devices, implement robust data security, and gain experience with the solution -- at no charge.

The cloud-based SimplySecure platform -- as provided by Beachhead's MSP partners -- secures PCs, laptops, phones, tablets, and USB storage devices by enforcing data encryption and by enabling administrators to remotely delete data and revoke access in the event that a device becomes lost or stolen (or whenever credentials are compromised). This method of data security is especially valuable for clients whose employees use devices containing sensitive company information, and for those organizations in industries where regulatory compliance requires that customer data be secured in line with specific encryption and data handling practices.

In situations where resellers or MSPs have access to their clients' sensitive data, it is critical that their own devices and data access are protected with the same rigor as what they are providing their clients with. This is not only a best practice for ensuring proper data security for clients; it is a legal requirement in some industries. For example, for organizations in the healthcare sector covered by HIPAA, any data security provider must legally -- as a business associate of the HIPAA-covered entity -- handle client data in a HIPAA-compliant manner as well. With Beachhead now providing free internal SimplySecure licenses to its partners, securing client information internally and complying with industry requirements around data security is simple and free.

Free internal implementation of SimplySecure presents business opportunities as well. Resellers and MSPs that are internally compliant with industry standards can use this fact as a competitive differentiator to win clients in target industries. In the same way, demonstrating that the data security solution provided to clients is the same one the reseller or MSP uses itself can heighten trust in both the provider and the product. Free internal use of SimplySecure also gives partners the opportunity to become more familiar with the solution and better understand it from a client perspective, which can be valuable in developing expertise as a provider.

"Treating others as you would want to be treated isn't just the golden rule, it's a smart business practice," said Cam Roberson, Director of the Reseller Channel for Beachhead Solutions. "We're excited to offer our reseller and MSP partners the opportunity to familiarize themselves with SimplySecure and secure their own internal devices, and do so at no cost. Showing potential clients that their data is safe in their hands -- and that they practice what they preach as far using the same solution they provide others -- makes a powerful statement about how highly they value their products and their clients."

Resellers and MSPs are invited to learn more about Beachhead's offer at CompTIA's 2016 ChannelCon conference, held August 1-3 in Hollywood, Florida, where the company is attending and exhibiting (booth #420). Beachhead's offer of ten free internal SimplySecure licenses applies to all CompTIA members who become SimplySecure Platform Partners.
