SKOUT was launched in 2006, after his CEO saw a lack in cyber security and a lack in organizations to provide this service to SMB businesses as they were increasingly becoming the targets of attacks. The company spent 6 years selling to direct customers but realized the true path to protecting the economy was through managed service providers. Therefore, in January 2019, the company became 100% channel-only. SKOUT augments analyst capabilities with AI and machine learning to find trouble, before trouble finds you. SKOUT can integrate to existing tools and systems, including mainframes and custom applications.
