CEDIA Propel, a program that connects CEDIA members to emerging trends, special offers, and innovative technology, has added guardDog.ai , an emerging provider of cybersecurity protection for consumers and businesses, to its portfolio of partner brands. Through Propel, CEDIA members can access exclusive discounts on guardDog’s products and service plans, including client monitoring services, among a suite of other benefits.
“CEDIA strives to keep the industry on the cutting-edge of technology and emerging trends, including cybersecurity,” says CEDIA senior director of strategic partnerships Ian Bryant. “guardDog is a perfect example of a new, innovative technology that aligns with the mission of the CEDIA Propel program and offers value to the entire CI channel. We are excited for CEDIA members to gain exclusive access to guardDog’s solutions and support and to feel pride in the benefits and security that they will now be able to offer their clients.”
Integrator and individual CEDIA members who sign up through CEDIA Propel can take advantage of free guardDog certification and training opportunities to develop their skillset and familiarity with the brand. Members will also receive access to new product developments and white-glove installation, set up, and monitoring. If additional support is needed, members can reach out to guardDog directly through a dedicated technical and sales hotline specifically for CEDIA members.
“guardDog underwent an extensive nine-month vetting process by CEDIA staff and volunteers,” says guardDog.ai executive director of business development Kelly Ryan. “Among other things, this led to our successful addition of AI protection to the CEDIA global headquarters. We are honored to connect with CEDIA members through the Propel program, to bring enterprise level cybersecurity protection to their clients through our affordable, easy-to-install and autonomous managed detection and response solutions.”
Available globally, guardDog uses AI-driven network overlay technology to find and protect attempted cyberattacks in less than two milliseconds. guardDog’s Fido and accompanying Protective Cloud Services make it possible for consumers, small business owners, and large enterprises to mitigate threats to their growing array of networked devices without having to hire dedicated IT support.
