Why Hybrid IT is a Big Opportunity for Managed Security Service Providers

Presented by

Aaron Sherrill, Senior Analyst & Dan Thompson, Senior Analyst

About this talk

The enterprise is shifting away from on–premise-only IT to a Hybrid IT model that delivers services using internal resources and/or external resources and services, often from multiple providers. While this model of IT can result in cost savings, performance optimization and greater agility, it also significantly increases the complexities of cybersecurity for the enterprise. Enterprises already struggling with cybersecurity will need help to address these concerns – concerns that many enterprises are not aware of or are unable to tackle. The Hybrid IT model does, however, present unique challenges for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), as these providers will be asked to secure environments that span multiple platforms, and in some cases disparate business units. MSSPs are poised to benefit from this shift if they can deliver services to address and mitigate these threats.
