Redefining the Future of MSP Data Security
For Managed Service Providers (MSPs), the security of client data is mission critical. Traditional security efforts often focus on endpoint defenses. This approach can overlook the primary target of cyber attackers, which is the data itself. This blog explores how a cloud-native platform provides a comprehensive data-first security approach.
The Shortcomings of Traditional MSP Security
Many MSPs invest heavily in endpoint security measures like vulnerability assessments, patch management, antivirus, and endpoint detection and response (EDR). While these are important, they often address the symptoms rather than the root cause of security breaches – the data.
Securing client data effectively is challenging. This is because to the widespread use of cloud solutions and the presence of threats from both inside and outside the organization. Additionally, complying with various regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS adds to this challenge. This problem is further complicated when traditional data solutions struggle to manage both cloud-based and on premises data stores.
