MSPs can drive streamlined and scalable prevention, detection, and response strategies to improve security for their clients. With the included network intrusion sensor and the built-in integration with Microsoft Azure, MSPs can track and monitor not just endpoints, but also leverage network visibility and get insights into their Microsoft Office 365 activity with pre-built dashboards and reports.

Endpoint Detection - ConnectWise MDR (Managed Detection and Response)

ConnectWise MDR leverages the global ConnectWise Security Operations Center (SOC) to monitor and manage Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technology with proprietary, MSP focused threat intelligence. The ConnectWise MDR service delivers unique malware detection and remediation capabilities giving TSPs the visibility into the root causes and origins of threats and the ability to reverse malicious operations.

Incident Response - ConnectWise Incident Response Service

The ConnectWise Incident Response Service provides direct, around-the-clock access to a team of cybersecurity incident response experts to provide immediate assistance to assess, contain and remediate attacks to minimize impact and business disruption. It serves as an extension of an TSP allowing clients to begin the recovery process ASAP. The ConnectWise Incident Response Service is available today to both ConnectWise partners and non-partners.

In addition to winning the categories listed above, ConnectWise was also named a finalist in the Training category for IT Nation Certify which offers a variety of role-based training sessions and courses designed to help MSPs invest in educating themselves and their teams to realize their vision of success. Through the IT Nation training and certification programs, MSPs learn how to work smarter and be more productive by strengthening their understanding of TSP best practices.
