Promisec offering free endpoint audits through VARs

When Promisec audits its customers’ endpoint security, the work typically comes with a price tag of at least $10,000. But now the Israel-based vendor is giving away the service — and doing so through the channel.

Promisec will introduce the free service tomorrow. Company executives are betting that the audit results will lead customers to ramp up their endpoint security purchases, benefiting both Promisec and its value-added resellers.

“Our channel partners can now offer customers a comprehensive level of insight into their network security, so organizations can eliminate significant threats before they become security breaches,” Ari Trammam, vice president of channel marketing, said in a statement.

The audits, which take about an hour to complete, can discover keyloggers, Trojans and other stealth applications, unauthorized applications and USB devices, peer-to-peer networks and other potential vulnerabilities. A recent report by Infonetics predicted that the endpoint security market will grow from $323 million in 2006 to $3.9 billion by 2008.
