Cybersecurity Infrastructure to Insurance
Ryan talks with Secure Now CEO, Art Gross about having clear and concise business conversations with customers….Taking a holistic approach to securing their businesses from establishing customer clarity and training their staff to cyber insurance.
Configuration is Vital
Ryan sits down with David Corlette, Director of Product Management with Vipre for a very frank conversation on the approach that IT Service Providers need to be taking with today’s cybersecurity. The importance of proper configuration from the onset, to ensure that all the tools in your stack are actually securing you and your clients.
Protect the Data
Amy Luby, Channel Chief Evangelist with Acronis talks with Ryan about focusing on protecting the data and selling solutions rather than products. With a myriad of different tools available for MSPs to deploy our security stacks are only going to increasingly get more complicated. Amy tells us ‘Simplify our processes and tool sets when looking at modernizing and automating our integrations’ .
Deny by Default
Danny Jenkins, CEO at ThreatLocker joins Ryan to discuss taking a Zero Trust approach to cybersecurity. Danny explains, ‘When deploying cybersecurity, more, doesn’t always mean better’. ‘Operate in the world of controls when securing your clients’. Great conversation touching on recent attacks and how they could have been avoided to having tough or not so tough customer conversations.
The Value of Collaboration
All too often we see IT Service Providers who insist on operating in a vacuum, out of fear, their competitors will learn their strengths and weaknesses to only use against them. However, we also see many who are engaged with peers and vendors, sharing information, providing feedback and keeping themselves at the forefront of industry knowledge and solutions.
Standing the Workforce Back Up
Michael Crean, CEO at Solutions Granted MSSP, talks with Brian about the return to the office and the challenges IT Providers are facing with the different customer requirements as we come out of this pandemic. Michael tells us, ‘Don’t forget about the fundamentals to chase a new product or service. Your stack is only as good as the foundation its sitting on.’
