CONNECTWISE IT NATION SECURE — ConnectWise is unveiling new solutions to help MSPs gain cyber insurance. It also has simplified the branding of its cybersecurity products.

Taking place in Orlando, Florida, IT Nation Secure aims to help MSPs reduce risk and transform their business. Streamlining cybersecurity service delivery for clients is another goal of the conference.

Raffael Marty is ConnectWise’s general manager of cybersecurity. He said the theme of this year’s IT Nation Secure is all about trust.

“We’re going to grow with the MSPs, helping them grow faster and really focusing on how do we become a close partner with the MSP,” he said. “We need to earn that trust again. We need to earn the trust of our partners because trust is not something you just have. And then tying it into security, trust or secure is a big piece of that … making sure that MSPs trust our infrastructure, our tools. But then also, how do we help the MSP be a trusted entity for their customer so that they can rely on working with the MSPs on a customer level?”

Cybersecurity More Important than Ever for MSPs

Patrick Beggs is ConnectWise’s new CISO. He said in today’s evolving threat landscape, it’s most important for MSPs to know their attack surface and what their assets are.

ConnectWise focuses on third-party penetration testing and compromise assessments, he said.

“We’re actually letting folks within our third parties come in our environments and looking for any active compromises,” Beggs said. “They’re going to start exploring internally and looking for weaknesses. The point of this is to have remediation efforts that we’re going to be able to identify and mature from. Every organization has an issue for something like that. If somebody tells you they don’t, they’re lying to you or they just don’t have an idea of their security.”

ConnectWise is transitioning more to the threat intelligence side of cybersecurity, he said.
