End-to-end platform provider Ensim Corp has launched an integrated solution to support all front- and back-end functionalities for the Intel Security (formerly McAfee) software-as-a-service (SaaS) portfolio. Also, Ensim is authorized to distribute Intel products to its service provider ecosystem.

Ensim said its Intel Security automation connector enables the Ensim Automation Suite "to be fully leveraged to provide management of the entire user and order lifecycle of Intel Security's cloud-based services," include McAfee SaaS Email Archiving, McAfee SaaS Web & Email Security with Archiving and McAfee SaaS Web Protection. Managed service providers (MSPs) can use the Ensim Automation Suite to administer and automate their customers' application infrastructure, according to the company.

"Intel Security is tasked with rolling out new offerings quickly and providing an effective way for its customers to purchase services instantly and be billed accordingly," Ensim CEO David Wippich said in a prepared statement. "We are pleased to collaborate with Intel Security to make its suite of cloud-based services more easily distributed in the SaaS marketplace."

So what does Ensim's cloud service brokerage of Intel Security's SaaS portfolio offer MSPs? Ensim said it provides several benefits, including:

  • Automated provisioning and orchestration workflow
  • Cloud marketplace and storefront
  • Multi-tenant architecture
  • Product modeling with plan and pricing management
  • Single sign-on

In addition, Ensim pointed out that the Ensim Automation Suite can be deployed on a modular basis and is available in single and multi-tenant versions to meet enterprise and service provider requirements.
