The Future Of Security Solutions: Being The Next-Gen MSSP

For solution providers, IT security holds enormous potential but is fraught with challenges. Customers are under a constant barrage of attacks and need partners to step up to defend their information, networks and devices. Today’s rapid state of innovation is making matters even worse.

Partners know they must provide valuable security solutions to their customers or risk losing the relationship. Whether a traditional MSP or MSSP, there is a demand to deliver security solutions around firewalls, email filtering, disaster recovery, Cloud protection, IoT, data loss, SD-related security, and so much more. No single IT services firm can do it all given the multitude of services needed and tech skills required. Solution providers also have the daunting task of vetting the multitude of security tech suppliers and vendors to ensure they are making the wisest partnership investments. This workshop will help today’s MSPs and MSSPs understand their existing capabilities; define the security offerings that will bring customers maximum value and develop an investment plan. Solution providers cannot solve every customer IT security issue, but they can have a sound strategic plan and an optimal roster of partnerships, making them equipped to help their customers through this dangerous era.

This XChange Security Workshop will feature industry experts, tech suppliers, peer-led content and specially designed whiteboard sessions where partners can work to solve real problems then compare notes with their peers.
