The programme will offer Five Diamond MSPs access to the highest level of cloud-based infrastructure available Tyco Security Products is pleased to introduce the hattrix Five Diamond Program from Kantech, a new cloud-based access control partnership programme for managed service providers (MSPs) who are active in or interested in offering hosted or managed access control services through Kantech. The programme, launching on Thursday, April 7 at ISC West in Las Vegas, will offer Five Diamond MSPs access to the highest level of cloud-based infrastructure available today, with high, mandatory requirements for participating data centres and MSPs. The programme is open to current and new hattrix MSPs of all sizes. Alliances with data centres and A&E firms The goal of the hattrix Five Diamond Program is to provide hattrix customers the peace of mind that their people and facilities are safe and secure. As part of the programme, Kantech has formed an alliance with two commercial grade North American data centres, which must meet stringent data security guidelines. The programme also helps the hattrix MSPs by including alliances with architecture and engineering (A&E) firms. The programme will be monitored by a neutral third party who will assess and inspect systems and the Five Diamond Committee, which will evaluate and award diamond ratings to participating MSPs. “The Five Diamond Program is designed to ensure that the highest security standards in the industry are instituted by our managed service providers for their cloud-based access control customers,” said Homer Enriquez, National Sales Manager – Kantech, Tyco Security Products. “This programme demonstrates our commitment to setting the standard for our industry. With the rigorous security requirements our alliances must meet, end users gain access to the most secure, cutting-edge technology available in the market today.” State of the art cyber security “The hattrix Five Diamond Program sets the bar high and is a win-win for everyone,” said Ken Robison, COO and co-owner of California Commercial Security, the first company to join the hattrix Five Diamond Program. “End users receive state of the art cyber security, while MSPs are given the option to outsource access control data to one of our data alliance members, knowing that their customers’ information is being secured at the highest level possible for cloud-based access control.” The hattrix Five Diamond Program launch event will be held at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, April 7, in the San Polo Room, 3401 of The Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, and is sponsored by Kantech’s Five Diamond partners Peak10 and CentrexIT.
