N-able has made another key chess move to keep its MSPs ahead of security threats. The company has promoted Troels Rasmussen as general manager of security products to help MSPs and their customers stay ahead of ever-evolving IT threats.

N-able’s Troels Rasmussen

In his new role, Rasmussen will support strategic direction across the full security product portfolio. Said portfolio currently hosts a range of solutions including endpoint detection and response, DNS filtering, Passportal and mail assure. All of these tools aid MSPs in protecting both their business and their customers’ businesses from bad actors. 

Rasmussen has been with N-able for more than four years. During that time, he has gained a holistic understanding of the business, focusing on its digital evolution.

“As attackers and threats continue to adapt, our goal is to provide the widest breadth and depth of security products to our MSP partners to nail security across its full life cycle — from identification to protection, detection, response, and recovery,” said Mike Adler, chief technology and product officer. “By appointing Troels for this role, we can continue to hone our focus on delivering secure, sophisticated solutions to help businesses not just stay current with today’s security threats but stay ahead of tomorrow’s.”

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in October.

Multilayered Security a Must

It is well known by now that MSPs need to stay ahead of the game with a multilayered security approach. It is, in fact, vital. In a survey released by N-able earlier this year, MSPs were found to be primary targets for cyberattacks. Almost all MSPs surveyed were victims of a successful cyberattack in the past 18 months. Further, 90% have seen an increase in attacks since the pandemic started. This throws into harsh relief the importance of MSPs leading by example, and implementing the same technologies as their customers. 

“Security changes every day and requires people to think about risk differently — it’s not just small-scale; it can be large-scale attacks that disrupt business continuity and can even lead to an extinction event,” said Rasmussen. “In this new role, our team will continue to be 100% dedicated to ongoing discovery, collaboration and partnership to help improve not only ourselves, but the industry as a whole. That is why we design sophisticated security solutions to help our partners own the risk conversation and to stay ahead with full, layered protection.”
