Managed Service Providers (MSP)
In the past few years, the threat landscape has changed dramatically, and the traditional solutions will not be enough to defend your business. However, partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) that offers IT security can bolster your cybersecurity defenses with robust security technology, monitoring, detection, and training.
Partnering with an MSP makes sense because they can proactively prevent security leaks that employees might cause and mitigate damage when a leak occurs. Here’s a sampling of the benefits a mobile device management MSP can provide:
- Keeps employee devices updated with the latest endpoint protection software.
- Applies updates to programs and applications when new versions and fixes become available.
- Applies operating system patches when first available on a regular schedule that you can configure.
- Provides security assessments to identify weaknesses in your existing mobile security program.
- Offers guidance on how to mitigate any mobile security program risks.
Viruses can also do serious harm to information, so consider MSPs that offer Webroot for complete endpoint management. The technology scans downloaded apps and devices for any threats. Equipped with Internet security, this defense provides a heads-up if it detects any malicious activity from the device browser.
Additionally, an MSP that offers mobile device management (MDM) can be very helpful in deploying automatic, remote device-locate and device-wipe services when mobile devices are lost or stolen, as well as antimalware and antivirus solutions to keep them protected at all times. This is especially important in terms of end user error, which is still highly dangerous; over time, employees may start to grow complacent, and at some point as they fail to follow best practices.
Education and Technology: A Winning Cybersecurity Combination
As your business begins the journey to enhance its cybersecurity posture, it all starts with educating your employees. The tips provided within this blog along with some basic common sense can go a long way in making sure sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands.
This is where an MSP can assist. They eliminate the need for your business to keep up on the latest antivirus, antimalware and alert technologies. You also don’t need to expend the necessary resource time to deploy and manage such solutions, which often fall beyond the bandwidth and expertise of internal teams.
