Australian automated cybersecurity startup 6pillars, AWS Advanced consulting partner, RedBear IT and AWS Premier consulting partner Versent have become among the first partners globally to achieve the newly launched Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 managed security service provider (MSSP) competency.

The designation recognises partners that have 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. 


6pillars is the brainchild of Lorenzo Modesto, who launched the startup late last year after taking some time out following his 10-year stint with cloud services provider Bulletproof until its acquisition by AC3 in 2018.
