Huntress is investing more in its MSP partners to help them grow their businesses and better safeguard customers.

Huntress saw tremendous [partner ecosystem] growth in 2022 and more than doubled our annual recurring revenue (ARR),” Kaiser said. “That growth comes from a mix of recruiting new partners and helping our current partners grow their business. We also made some significant investments into the MSP community, which you’ll continue to see us double down on throughout 2023. For example, we made Huntress available at no cost to thousands of MSPs for internal use through our Neighborhood Watch program.”

Neighborhood Watch Helping MSPs

Neighborhood Watch is a collection of programs and resources to help elevate the broader security community. It offers “internal use” Huntress licenses. These licenses offer access to a variety of features across Huntress’ platform. Those include managed endpoint detection and response (EDR) backed by its threat-hunting team, and security awareness training (SAT).

Huntress’ latest research shows midsize businesses are struggling with cybersecurity. The survey was conducted over two weeks in January, with 256 companies in the United States and Canada participating.

Among the findings:

  • In the last 12 months, 24% of midsize businesses have suffered a cyberattack or are unsure if they have suffered a cyberattack.

  • Sixty-one percent do not have dedicated cybersecurity experts in their organization.

  • Forty-seven percent don’t have an incident response plan.

  • Twenty-seven percent have no cyber insurance coverage.
