How WAF-as-a-Service can help MSPs

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jul 26, 2018 3:31:47 PM

According to WhiteHat Security’s 2017 Application Security Statistics Report, 75 percent of attacks target applications, and 25 percent attack the network perimeter. But for most companies, security spending doesn’t match up to that reality. The report shows that 90 percent of security investment is in perimeter security, and just 10 percent of security investment is in application security.

Introducing Managed PhishLine

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jul 11, 2018 9:36:48 AM

How confident are you that your SMB customers and their employees know how to recognize a phishing attack? Most likely the answer is not very.

The solution? Better security awareness training. In the email security trends report, 98 percent of respondents said there are better ways to train employees than traditional classroom-style education.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce Managed PhishLine, a new service for MSPs. To give you an inside look at the new addition to our professional services offering and how it can help your business, we talked to Jayne Haggard from the Managed PhishLine team.

That's why we invited our MSP partners to share their favorite #backupwin on Twitter to help celebrate World Backup Day, which is coming up on March 31.
