Cyberattacks have impacted leading retailers, financial institutions, healthcare providers, and even elections. While awareness of cyber threats may be at an all- time high, cyberattacks are still happening, and they’re extremely expensive, both in terms of money and a company’s reputation.
Not only do your clients expect a certain level of quality in the services they receive; they also place a great deal of importance on the individual working relationship. Clients want to know they’re being taken seriously as people, and are being served by MSPs who understand their needs on a personal level.
Today’s threats use multiple vectors to attack, from malicious email attachments to infected web ads to phishing sites. Criminals combine a range of threat technologies, deployed in numerous stages to infect computers and networks. This blended approach increases the likelihood of success, the speed of contagion, and the severity of damage. The only way to keep your clients safe is with a layered cybersecurity strategy that can secure users and their devices at every stage of an attack, across every possible attack vector. The following guide is designed to help MSPs develop an effective IT security program for their clients.
Here are 10 reasons MSP clients need a layered security strategy to stay safe.
Cybersecurity breaches are expensive. Even if you provide industry-leading cybersecurity services, modern malware tactics are too sophisticated to guarantee 100% that your clients will stay safe. A single breach at a client site can spell countless man-hours lost to remediation and disaster recovery—not to mention the damage it does to the trust your clients place in you and your services. So what’s an MSP to do?
“With 7.5 million new malware variants introduced each month,” organizations need to prepare for all-out war on cyberattacks. Cyber threats are attacking users from multiple angles—or “vectors”. And what’s worse, their attacks can hit in multiple stages. As an MSP, you must leverage solutions that keep users and devices infection free, across all endpoints. Unfortunately, two- thirds of MSPs are short on qualified IT professionals who can help them ramp up their security offerings. Thankfully, multi-vector protection can help.
For businesses of any size, web browsing can not only present serious security threats, it can also become a drain on productivity. Your clients need the ability to ensure their users don’t visit dangerous or time-wasting sites. That’s where Webroot SecureAnywhere® DNS Protection comes in.
