Cloud commerce marketplace Pax8 has announced a new global partnership with cybersecurity firm Nord Security.

The agreement enables Pax8 to immediately offer partners Nord Security’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution NordLayer, as well as its NordPass password manager.

"Security is a huge focus for Pax8, and we are committed to partnering with the leading security vendors to enable MSPs to create the most comprehensive technology stack for their clients," said Ryan Walsh, Pax8’s Chief Operating Officer, in an announcement.

"Nord Security provides one of the most advanced security solutions in the industry and has been recognised by some of the most influential IT security specialists and tech sites. We are thrilled to add NordLayer and NordPass to our suite of solutions."

As part of the collaboration, Pax8 will now offer partners Nord Security’s ISO-certified adaptive network access solution NordLayer. The offering is designed to help businesses transition to SASE, implement zero trust, and move on from outdated legacy solutions.

Rather than simply securing the endpoint, NordLayer covers the journey to and from the cloud, applications, and site-to-site, through a single gateway. There’s also access to 24/7 support and centralised policy enforcement.

Additionally, NordPass provides state-of-the-art encryption, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), with zero-knowledge architecture. The solution shifts to proactive breach management with the native data breach scanner within the Security Dashboard to determine which users are posing potential risks to corporate data, as well as gather detailed security insights, see breached domains and assess password strength.

The availability of these solutions via Pax8 marks Nord Security’s first foray into the IT channel market through distribution.

"Nord Security is excited to be launching with Pax8 to make NordLayer and NordPass immediately available to Pax8's ever-expanding MSP community," commented David Nutt, SVP of North America at Nord Security. "For thousands of businesses worldwide, Nord Security has demonstrated that our cybersecurity solutions combine industry-leading innovation with unmatched ease of implementation and user experience.

“MSPs and their customers will see instant benefits. Pax8 is a key partner and is central to expanding Nord Security's commitment to our partner-led strategy."
