Securing the World: On a Mission to Make the Cyber World a Safer Place

Securing the World: On a Mission to Make the Cyber World a Safer Place
powered by Sounder

Whether you’re quick to embrace the newest technologies or still using a flip phone, one thing is certain—technology is advancing faster than ever before. It seems like everything we use in our daily lives is connected to the internet. And that connection can be great.

But the more connected devices you have, the more susceptible you are to vulnerabilities and hackers trying to access your information.

That is why on this episode of B2B Tech Talk, we talked with Trevor Serbero, an MSP and Distribution Manager at Kaspersky, one of the largest privately owned cybersecurity companies in the world, with over 4,000 employees.

On this episode, we talked about:

  • The current cybersecurity threat landscape
  • Their first-ever transparency report
  • The biggest challenges currently facing MSPs and resellers
  • How Kaspersky can help your organization
  • The future of cybersecurity and where technology is going in the coming year

The Kaspersky Transparency Report

Kaspersky is committed to transparency. And with the growth of technology in all of our lives, the demand for greater transparency of the software they use is growing, including their security solutions.

To address the demand, Kaspersky has issued its first-ever transparency report, which is the law enforcement and government agency requests report. Basically, every time a government agency or law enforcement entity requests information from Kaspersky, it is documented. And this report is that document.

But lest you think they’re just handing over customer information, not all of the requests made are fulfilled. Every request goes through a legal verification process, whereby they can approve, deny or appeal requests.

Kaspersky never provides any law enforcement entity or government organization with access to user data or company infrastructure.

Biggest Challenges?

In addition to the transparency report, there is a whole lot more that Kaspersky offers to its customers, and they’re hyper aware of the newest and biggest challenges facing MSPs and resellers today.

What are those biggest challenges?

First, the migration of workers from the office to their homes. MSPs and resellers have been facing not only hardware shortages, but challenges in securing those remote workers’ devices as they are more and more reliant on oftentimes less than secure home networks.

Second, the flexibility in their licensing models. MSPs have to be ready to pivot by expanding or reducing their licenses at a moment’s notice as they expand and contract.

And finally, profitability and cost structure. It’s a constant balancing act of managing software and hardware costs to stay one step ahead of the competition, while also maintaining the security that they expect.
