SolarWinds MSP: Cyberthreats Create Big Opportunities

SolarWinds' John Pagliuca at Empower

… their day-to-day jobs as being an MSP kind of get in the way of that because there’s so much going on,” Miller said. “And when they start looking at security, they [say], ‘Well, I’ve got to bring on people, I’ve got to bring on tools, I’ve got to figure out how I’m going to sell this to my clients because it’s not the same sale as an MSP would make. So there [are] so many different factors that go into it. It’s almost as if the MSPs need a bit of mentorship to get to the next level. So we’re going to try to help them figure out how to get from where they are today to at least get to a point where they can feel comfortable supporting SMBs.”

This week, SolarWinds launched Mail Assure, a cloud-based email malware protection and spam filtering solution that acts as a protective layer for all incoming and outgoing email. It is continuously updated with input from more than 2 million domains in more than 85 countries, while the Mail Assure spam and threat protection helps to shield users from email threats, the company said.

“The most vulnerable vector for malicious business attacks is email; according to recent research, 91 percent of cyberattacks and the resulting data breach begin with a spear phishing email,” said Greg Lissy, SolarWinds MSP’s vice president of product management. “Even if customers have a primary layer of security, as with Microsoft Office 365, Mail Assure provides an additional layer of defense to prevent spam, virus and ransomware attacks — providing users with increased reliability, email continuity and top-of-the-line email security.”

In August, SolarWinds MSP announced its purchase of SpamExperts, which provides email security solutions, including email archiving and filtering.
