Security has always encompassed physical and logical components. But in the face of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), an increasingly mobile and remote workforce, highly distributed assets and sophisticated online threats, security has become too complex and multifaceted for many organizations to manage alone. At the same time, managed service providers (MSPs) are looking to explore new revenue streams in a changing market. Security, in all its forms, is a key area in which MSPs can become indispensable partners to their clients and with the right partner, online security has low barriers of entry and solid payoffs.
Read this white paper to learn ways that MSPs can leverage online security solutions to add substantial value for their customers and expand their service portfolios to grow their businesses.
Security concerns, privacy invasions, data breaches, and new threats to computers and networks are making headlines every day. As the lines between our professional and personal lives blur and employees increasingly access corporate networks and resources with personal devices, the variety and complexity of security concerns can be overwhelming for even the savviest of organizations. SMBs, which often lack dedicated IT resources or experienced staff to address these challenges, are even more vulnerable to potential security threats.
It should come as no surprise, then, that businesses of all sizes are eager for new tools, new services, and strategic partners that can help them operate securely in IT environments dominated by cloud
computing, BYOD, consumerization and highly distributed workforces.
