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 artwork illustrates a complex network of interconnected digital nodes and data streams, symbolizing a comprehensive approach to data security. Abstract shapes and a mixture of vibrant colors represent the dynamic and multifaceted nature of modern MSP data security solutions, emphasizing the importance of protecting client data in a cloud-native environment.

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.


A Paradigm Shift in Data Security

Sotero is a game-changer for MSPs by offering a cloud native platform. It seamlessly integrates with customer data stores without requiring code changes or installed agents. This ease of integration allows MSPs to start protecting their customer’s data infrastructure rapidly. Often, this means that setup is reduced from weeks to months, giving companies a competitive advantage.

Empowering MSPs to Meet Customer Needs

Sotero enables MSPs to address the growing demand for data privacy and compliance with various regulatory mandates. With this technology, MSPs support their customers by meeting compliance requirements such as PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and GDPR.
