New York, NY, Sept. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Edge announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Competency status. This designation recognizes that Digital Edge has successfully met AWS requirements for a baseline of managed security services to protect and monitor essential AWS resources 24/7, known as Level 1 Managed Security Services.
This new baseline standard of quality for managed 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. The six domains contain multiple MSSP services, each with technical skill set and operational process requirements specific to AWS.
AWS launched the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency program 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 Digital Edge as an MSSP and AWS Partner with essential 24/7 managed cloud security skill sets to earn the distinction of Level 1 MSSP.
“ We are thrilled to have achieved AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency. With AWS, we seamlessly provide our clients flexible, scalable, and cost-effective cloud solutions that modernize their IT infrastructure. Our comprehensive cybersecurity offerings ensure our client solutions are compliant with frameworks and meet the certification requirements,” says Mike Petrov, Chief Executive Officer, Digital Edge.

Recently Digital Edge’s CEO, Micheal Petrov, was welcomed as a guest speaker for CTG Intelligence Managed Security Services Forum (#MSSTriState).
We are a leading IT company and AWS Partner which is headquartered in New York, yet staffed globally. Indeed, even prior to the disruption brought on by the Covid pandemic, we had a decentralized organization where the talent we sourced was more important to us than where our talent was sourced. With this as a guiding principle, we as many other IT firms tended to have substantial staff located in Ukraine.
It all worked great for many years as a win-win-win for our Ukrainian staff, which was happy to be employed by a US firm (and to be paid in US dollars); for our clients which were happy with a work product that exceeded expectations; and for Digital Edge, which was happy to have happy clients (and to be paying competitive, albeit steadily, rising compensation in US dollars).
The big IT problem facing many companies today is the recent explosive growth in privacy and cybersecurity laws they must comply with.
Cybernews met with Michael Petrov to talk about the importance and benefits of properly implemented cybersecurity management systems.
