The first three installments of the Cyberthreat Defense Report (CDR) began the process of looking beyond major breaches and the never-ending evolution of cyberthreats to better understand what IT security teams are doing to defend against them.
In this 2017 security survey, the overall responses strongly suggest that executive boards of enterprises and small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) are confident of their cyberthreat preparedness, low vulnerability, and data protection. The data reflects that their CIOs, heads of IT, and even their CISOs are all equally clear: we are secure.
For My IT, customization for each client is king. The firm’s philosophy is to eliminate the IT burden for customers, leaving them free to focus on driving bottom-line success. At the forefront of the MSP’s technology stack is remote monitoring and management (RMM). When My IT began experiencing technical constraints with its existing RMM platform, Vice President Patrick Leonard decided the time was right to switch to SolarWinds® MSP, the global leader in RMM and service automation software.
When Daniel Cohn formed Cohn Consulting Corp., he was able to make use of familiar technologies to get his IT practice off the ground. In 1996, he joined forces with Jon Czerwinski, Vice President of Operations, to hone in on automating their IT services to meet their clients’ needs. In 2006, they came across SolarWinds® MSP and found they were able to take their IT automation skills up a notch to better serve their small-to-midsize (SMB) businesses.
According to several industry surveys and analyst groups, the top technology priority for small and medium businesses (SMBs) is security for the third consecutive year. To help managed service providers (MSPs) capitalize on the needs of their core customer base, numerous security vendors have been lining up to empower MSPs with security tools. However, there is one security vendor with a sizable market share lead in the MSP space. According to last year’s MSPmentor 501 survey data, Webroot owns a 30% market share with the world’s top MSPs. In fact, the next closest antivirus player within the MSP market only commands an 15% market share.
Analysis of the current market reveals a new aspect of the second stage in cloud adoption. Many of the macro trends seen before are still in place, but the pace of progress appears to have slowed. In some cases, it even appears to have taken a step backwards. What accounts for this phenomenon?

As technology continues to advance, managing and analyzing massive data sets just can’t be accomplished by humans alone. It requires huge amounts of memory and storage, as well as the high-speed processing power of the cloud. Machine learning is a process that applies advanced mathematical algorithms and powerful computing capabilities to quickly and efficiently analyze those data sets and identify patterns.
A year ago, we accurately predicted cybersecurity threats that have since been realized, from attacks that targeted the presidential election to the continued onslaught of ransomware. Awareness of cyber threats may be at an all-time high, but attacks are still both prevalent and successful. Nonetheless, for the first time ever, we witnessed a minor year-over-year decrease in the volume of malware. In part, the decline can be attributed to the increased security awareness mentioned, but it also reflects changes in cybercriminal tactics.
