ConnectWise Introduces MSP-Specific Cybersecurity Framework and Security Partner Community: Page 2 of 2

Part of a larger wave of security-related news from the vendor’s IT Nation Explore event, which is taking place online this week, the new offerings are designed to help channel pros meet ever-escalating demand for security services more effectively. By Rich Freeman

“We’re trying to build a community of cybersecurity-minded MSPs working together to solve the challenges that we all face when it comes to securing our customers,” Ryerse says. A member conference called IT Nation Secure Live is tentatively scheduled to take place in November.

Like IT Nation Secure, the MSP+ Cybersecurity Framework is available to any technology service provider, not just ConnectWise partners. “It’s very much meant to be vendor agnostic,” says Jeff Bishop, the vendor’s chief product officer.

ConnectWise launched a cybersecurity Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) aimed at helping makers of managed services software, and the companies that use those products, cooperate on efforts to mitigate security threats last August, and appointed former channel pro MJ Shoer to lead it two months later. Industry association CompTIA took over responsibility for the organization this March.
