Even though 55% of North American organizations use more than 25 separate cybersecurity technologies, cyberattacks are still steadily increasing, according to the Enterprise Security Group.
It’s clearly time to start taking a more holistic approach to cybersecurity.
In this episode of B2B Tech Talk, Trend Micro
program manager Lamon Gorman
shares his insights on cybersecurity frameworks and enhanced detection and response.
Here’s what we cover:
- Simplifying cybersecurity into a comprehensive framework
- How MSPs should be handling the new age of cybersecurity
- The value of XDR and why Trend Micro offers it over EDR
Lamon encourages MSPs to view cybersecurity as a framework as opposed to individual components. The objective of a cybersecurity framework is to more simply mitigate risk and deal with threats.
<"Cybersecurity should be viewed as a framework." — Lamon Gorman>
There are five functions of a cybersecurity framework
Including each essential function of proper cybersecurity in your holistic framework will make it easier to handle risk and offer better security to your customers.
Cybersecurity and MSPs
It used to be that information security was just another box for MSPs to check off for their customers. Now, cybersecurity is a much more prevalent piece of an MSP’s offerings.
Lamon explains that today’s successful MSPs are ones that have helped their customers understand exactly what is and what’s not covered in their current agreements. This is important because some customers may believe that they’re already receiving the top security services.
In reality, there are many MSPs that have failed to communicate the necessary rise in cost for up-to-date security measures. Lamon suggests opening a clear line of communication with your customers and ensure that they understand the quality of security services they’re currently paying for.
EDR and XDR: What they mean for MSPs
EDR is endpoint detection and response and that’s precisely where it falls short: EDR only monitors the endpoints. In today’s threat landscape, breaches can happen anywhere, not just at endpoints.
That’s why Trend Micro offers XDR (X detection and response). XDR expands detection capabilities across:
- Cloud services
- And more
By collecting event information across multiple sources, then applying analytics and correlations across a more complete database, MSPs have more meaningful data with more context.
Trend Micro has been able to develop XDR because of its dedication to responsiveness and innovation for over 30 years. This longevity is a testament to Trend Micro’s commitment to its partners and its overall adaptability.
To offer your customers the best in threat detection and response, consider Trend Micro’s XDR.
