Deepwatch Achieves AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency Status and Lists in AWS Marketplace


Designation provides strong validation for organizations seeking Managed Detection and Response (MDR) capabilities on AWS

DENVER, CO — AWS RE:INFORCE, August 24, 2021 — Deepwatch, a leader in advanced managed detection and response (MDR) security, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Competency status. This designation recognizes that Deepwatch has successfully met AWS requirements for a baseline of managed security services to protect and monitor essential AWS resources, known as Level 1 Managed Security Services (MSS). This new baseline standard of quality for managed security services was introduced by AWS to benefit cloud environments of any size and it spans six security domains: vulnerability management, cloud security best practices and compliance, threat detection and response, network security, host and endpoint security, and application security.

AWS launched the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency and the AWS Marketplace MSSP Category to enable customers to easily acquire ongoing security monitoring and management, validated by AWS. AWS security experts annually validate the tools used and operational processes of each MSSP to address specific cloud security challenges such as continuous event monitoring, triaging, AWS service configuration best practices, and 24/7 incident response. The AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency provides a faster and easier experience for customers to select the right MSSP to help them achieve their goals for business risk and cloud strategy confidence.

Achieving the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency differentiates Deepwatch as an MSSP and AWS Partner Network member (APN) that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success, delivering solutions seamlessly on AWS. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and undergo an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions.

“Deepwatch provides early threat detection and response together with tailored guidance from experts to help our customers mitigate risk and improve their security posture,” said Charlie Thomas, CEO of Deepwatch. “We’re proud to achieve the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency which underscores our cloud security expertise and the performance and efficacy of Deepwatch’s MDR solutions on AWS.”

“AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency represents a new baseline standard of quality for managed security services to help organizations select the right partner to mitigate business risk and also advance their cloud strategies,” said Ryan Orsi, Global Security/MSSP Practice Team Lead, AWS. “We congratulate our partner Deepwatch on their managed cloud security competence and distinction of Level 1 MSSP.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Deepwatch is qualified by AWS to provide the MSS solutions, security architecture, and guidance to meet the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency requirements. The Deepwatch platform leverages native AWS security services to deliver a fully provisioned, dedicated Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) for every customer.
