A Checklist for Implementing Cyber Protection for MSPs
Legacy protection technologies lack integration. Cyberthreats are on the rise. Breaches happen more often and on more devices.
When it comes to cybercrime, today’s small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are an easy target. Budgets and staffing are limited, and finding the right skilled people is difficult. Many opt to rely on a managed service provider (MSP) to administer their IT needs and keep their workloads and systems secure. However, since the cyberthreat
landscape is always evolving, many MSPs also struggle to stay ahead of new threats. In fact, cybercriminals have successfully attacked the platforms that service providers use to run their businesses to gain access to both the MSPs’ data and their clients’.
A backup and restore strategy alone is no longer sufficient to keep data safe. The objective of new ransomware strains is to delete backup files, agents, and security software. Backup without integrated cybersecurity capabilities is not enough.
