Technology Investments Fuel Efficiency and Profits
The spend for security as a percentage of the IT budget is growing, and MSPs across the globe are adopting technology to enable new managed security services. Security tech stack changes can also promote business share shift from less profitable, project-based products to newer, more profitable services-based products. Maximize your ROI by adding security technology that’s built on a unified platform for scalable, efficient operations and a faster ramp of multiple new offerings.
MSP Security Tech Stack – How can you optimize your security business?
Adding a new technology to your stack is an important decision critical to the strategy and goals of your business. These are some of the technologies to add or change for improvements to the top and bottom line alike.

Security Stack to Grow Strong MSPs
Manage Risk with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Compliance mandates often require MFA, and security agencies like CISA are advising companies to deploy MFA and harden credentials to enable effective protection. Yet, many MSPs have yet to add an identity security service, making this one of the greatest business opportunities in security today.
70% of Cyberattacks Occur on the Endpoint
Endpoints are a challenge – they are largely out of reach of the corporate network and they have the riskiest use cases. By ditching AV-only products and deploying endpoint security with protection, detection and response technologies, you upgrade to the strong security your clients need.
Wi-Fi Can Be a Haven for Hackers
Looking for differentiation? Most MSPs ignore the Wi-Fi environment, when is actually an easy path for certain attacks. Add Wi-Fi security that monitors Wi-Fi access points and performance to stand apart from the crowd with unique value-added security.
