Since Jan. 1, Channel Futures has tracked an influx of vendor announcements about new threat protection products and platforms. The releases reflect trends sparked by the worldwide response to COVID-19: shifting employees to remote work and moving workloads into the cloud. These changes require greater security oversight over endpoints such as cellphones and laptops, and applications such as Slack and Outlook. They also have put networks at more cybersecurity risk than ever before.
Some of the problems stem from employees — sometimes inadvertently, sometimes on purpose. Others come from cybercriminals intent on wreaking havoc. Regardless of where data theft, ransomware, phishing or another breach comes from, enterprises and SMBs face an onslaught of threats. Managed security service providers, in particular, are ideally positioned to help. But some have yet to get on board.

And that’s the crux of threat protection: There’s no one way to guard clients against the growing number of cyber breaches. In many cases, MSSPs and other partners will combine various tactics to create a complete threat protection stance. To get to that point, though, they must understand why now is the time to do so or else.
