Ignition Technology launches “Cyber-Security-as-a-Service” aggregation platform for the channel

Catalyst Insights helps channel partners to integrate disparate security products and services to capitalise on growing MSSP and SoC opportunity.

Ignition Technology has launched Catalyst Insights, the UK’s first “Cyber-Security-as-a-Service” aggregation platform designed exclusively for the channel. Catalyst Insights currently supports 15 vendors spanning endpoint assessment, breach data reporting, MFA, EDR, IT Service Desk and Contact Centre, delivered within an integrated management and reporting service.


Developed over the last 12 months, Catalyst Insights provides a single pane of glass deployment, management and reporting function offered as a white label platform to Ignition’s 870 strong partner community to streamline MSSP and SoC delivery for the channel.

At launch, Catalyst Insights integrates with 15 leading security and infrastructure management products with built-in breach data reporting and Microsoft Active Directory support to allow channel partners to create highly configurable solutions for both single clients and as part of a MSSP / SoC offering.

“Several security vendors offer ‘Cyber-Security-as-a-Service’ solutions, but these are only designed for their own products and each requires a separate administrative layer which is impractical for channel partners’ supporting growing client bases,” explains Paul Risk, CTO for Ignition, “In some cases, these products were never designed for MSSP usage and as such offer limited multi-tenant support, service provider reporting or integration with IT service desk tools.”

“Catalyst Insights has been developed over the last year based on feedback from our partners to offer a better way of using multiple best-of-breed cyber security solutions within an integrated process to handle moves, adds and changes as well as monthly billing and reporting,” adds Risk.

Launch integration

Catalyst Insights launches with built-in breach data reporting to allow channel partners to show clients which corporate email addresses, passwords and personal data is on the dark web, and where these have been connected to known breaches. Other noteworthy features include Global Cloud Health Status showing all the data centres and component status’ of AWS, GCP and Azure/O365 in a simple view plus Active Directory to Endpoint AV cross-referencing to show which endpoints don’t have AV installed, or what machines have AV that aren’t in Active Directory.

  • C3M: Cloud security posture management and compliance assurance.
