ConnectWise Buys Perch Security and StratoZen: Page 2 of 2

Together, the two companies will arm ConnectWise to help MSPs centralize, interpret, and act on security data more effectively, according to CEO Jason Magee (pictured) speaking at the vendor’s IT Nation Connect event this morning. By Rich Freeman

With such figures in mind, ConnectWise launched a new partner community called IT Nation Secure and a new cybersecurity framework for MSPs in June, and held its first IT Nation Secure conference last month. Security has been a strategic priority for the company since 2018

ConnectWise competitors have been building out their security capabilities as well. SolarWinds MSP, for example, purchased password management vendor Passportal and rolled out an EDR solution based on technology from SentinelOne last year. Kaseya has purchased security vendors RapidFire Tools and ID Agent in recent years, as well as data protection vendors Unitrends and Spanning.

Elsewhere at IT Nation Connect today, ConnectWise introduced an updated edition of its ITBOOST documentation system, a new direction for its BrightGauge reporting tool, and a new underlying platform for its entire family of products.
