Chico, CA — July 3, 2001 — MSPNews (www.mspnews.net), the leading information resource for the managed service provider industry, welcomes Qualys (https://www.qualys.com) as the latest member to join the MSP Directory.
“The Managed Security Provider industry has completely transformed the economics of network security and, in embracing online vulnerability detection techniques, is turning the Internet itself into a weapon against hackers,” said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys, Inc. “As a pioneer of online vulnerability scanning and risk assessment technologies, Qualys is pleased that MSPNews has established a forum to help define and further the benefits of this industry and are excited to be associated with their efforts.”
“We understand the MSP industry. We live, breath, and eat it,” said Karissa Michelle Stewart, Vice President of Business Development at MSPNews. “Not only do our members come to us for information, but they also come to us to get their word out. In this current economic situation, companies cannot afford the time it will take for the MSP Industry to define itself.”
To date, companies such as FusionStorm, WorldStor, SilverBack, Sentire, SonicWall and others have become members of the MSPNews Directory, with several more companies, such as Red Siren, Verado, SaskTel, CheckPoint and others, announcing their membership in upcoming weeks.
MSPNews covers news and events related to the managed service provider industry, as well as niche service provider sectors, including security, networks, storage, and vendors.

Membership in the Directory allows the company to accurately control and ensure that their unique message is not distorted.
