Beachhead Solutions' MSP Business Sees 346% Growth in 2014

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2015) -  Beachhead Solutions, provider of cloud-managed mobile device encryption, security and data access control for businesses of all sizes, today reported a 346% year-over-year rise in monthly recurring revenue in 2014. As was true the previous year, MSPs and resellers have continued to more than double their demand for Beachhead's SimplySecure Management System, which provides easy cloud-based security and management for their customers' portable devices, including Windows and Mac laptops and desktops, iPhones and Android Phones, iPads and other tablets, and USB storage devices.

In today's bring-your-own-device offices, MSPs and SMBs alike have increasingly realized the value of Beachhead's highly configurable tool, which can be managed from a single sign-on console for low IT overhead. With its combination of comprehensive data security offering blanket coverage for all portable devices holding data within an organization through an all-in-one management console, SimplySecure is recognized as a first-in-the-industry product. Beachhead Solutions is also the only pure play cloud service provider included in Gartner's recent Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection report.

Beachhead's monthly recurring revenue has risen sharply alongside the growth in its quantity of domestic resellers -- up 226% over the past year -- and the rise in its number of international resellers, which has more than doubled. Beachhead's customer-friendly free license offer has acted as a boon to this growth, with MSPs able to offer five free SimplySecure Phones & Tablets licenses per customer, These, along with the availability of an instant free trial of the cloud-based solution, allows them to make risk-free determinations and entice client demand with these no-cost explorations.

Special features within SimplySecure added specifically for MSP benefit include:

  • A single sign-on multi-tenant cloud console for all MSP subaccounts;
  • Monthly reporting summaries and delineated MSP subaccounts;
  • Monthly billing with no customer or reseller time/cost commitments -- billing is only for licenses deployed that month;
  • New UI improvements for MSP control, including account snapshots, a more graphical UI, and the ability to manage by user.

"The success Beachhead experienced in 2014 has only served to reinforce the importance of our MSP partnerships," said Cam Roberson, director of the reseller channel for Beachhead Solutions. "Insights into the market and the specific needs of clients gleaned from our MSPs' client knowledge and experiences have helped light our path forward and been influential as our SimplySecure product develops and adapts to the latest industry needs. We continue to take pride in delivering a solution that clients are glad to have and resellers are eager to provide."

"Beachhead really understands how technology is delivered to businesses," said Larry Robertson, CEO of Convergent Technologies, a Beachhead-authorized MSP. "Today, sensitive data travels at light-speed and can be carried around in every employees' pocket, and compliance requirements for the handling of sensitive data only raise the stakes. Rendering the entire mobile constellation of laptops, tablets, phones, and USB drives within an organization significantly less susceptible to data leaks makes for a peace of mind clients find very welcome, and that wouldn't be available without Beachhead's easily-managed solution. We're glad to include Beachhead's SimplySecure as part of what we offer and see more mutual successes ahead."
