The PT Services team recently launched the latest episode of our podcast, the PT Buzz. During this installment, we took a deep dive into MSP security, how it has shifted over the recent years, the impact that the pandemic has had on it, and the MSP business growth opportunities that it presents in the near future. The potential that exists both currently and moving forward in the MSP security landscape suggests that many service providers would strongly benefit from shifting to become ‘security-centric’ MSPs, if they have not begun this journey already. On this new episode of the podcast, John Pojeta speaks with Brian Babineau, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Barracuda MSP, about changes and trends in MSP security.
The podcast touches on the key shifts and developments that have impacted the service delivery requirements of MSPs, shares some security-centric recommendations for success, and considers how MSPs can further improve their ability to detect, prevent, and remediate cyberattacks that emerge in the evolving threat landscape.
Pandemic impacts to MSP security
One particular theme of the conversation is how the pandemic and the shifting, hybrid work environment that resulted has impacted the security of businesses. The discussion focuses on the inherent risks that a distributed workforce has forced employers to address.
