Vulnerability management technology provider CyberCNS has announced the appointment of Peter Bellini as its new CEO, who will lead the business under its new name of ConnectSecure.

Bellini steps into the role having joined the MSP as vice president of operations earlier this year, as well as having recently made a significant investment in the company.

ConnectSecure is also establishing US operations in Tampa, Florida, with Bellini to spearhead the development of new US-based customer support and education teams in a bid to provide more resources for MSP partners using its ConnectSecure Vulnerability Management Platform.

Commenting on his appointment, Bellini highlighted the need for security solutions that are better suited to the needs of smaller businesses.

“We are a mission-driven company meeting a critical need,” he explained. “A high percentage of cyber attacks target small businesses, but most MSP solutions are designed for large enterprises or have pricing structures that exploit MSPs, rather than help them.

“This small business cyber gap must be closed. MSPs play a pivotal role, and our team feels a responsibility to give them an affordable solution so they can protect the small businesses that form the backbone of the world’s economy.”

The ConnectSecure Vulnerability Management platform is designed to help MSPs provide security services to small and midsize businesses, offering tools such as automated, continuous scanning with complete network, infrastructure, and user devices visibility.

The solution also provides PSA integrations with apps such as Slack, Teams, Halo, and ConnectWise, as well as an extensive library of international regulations and compliance protocols.

Since its launch in 2001, the platform’s user base has grown to more than 1,200 MSPs that provide cyber security services to nearly 20,000 SMBs around the world.

Despite the leadership change and rebrand, ConnectSecure’s co-founders Sri Sreenivasan and Shiva Jagannathan said the company remains committed to its core values and community-focused model.

“We built our platform in partnership with the MSP community and engage with them every week in our Wednesday community meeting,” Jagannathan said.

“That’s how we know we are delivering what they need to protect their clients: a single vulnerability management solution, with a flexible, affordable pricing structure, robust application integration, and the most extensive regulatory protocol library available.

“When we see other providers essentially price-gouging for separate tools and locking MSPs into multi-year contracts, it just reinforces our belief that we are on a better path.”
