MSPs Serving Health Providers Need To Boost Cybersecurity

Many companies are still being forced to transition to remote work. A key factor in making that process run smoothly has been managed service providers (MSPs).

Datto’s annual “Global State of the MSP” report found that SMBs have been increasingly entrusting their IT operations to an MSP—even before the pandemic. Individual MSPs have seen steady growth over the past three years, and a recent CompTIA survey revealed that 67% will seek third-party assistance for remote work capabilities because of COVID-19.

Healthcare providers have also been utilizing MSPs, especially while facing a rise in cyberattacks. In fact, last month several federal agencies, including HHS and the FBI, issued a joint cybersecurity advisory that cited "credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers." The advisory warned of Russian criminal groups targeting American hospitals with Ryuk ransomware.

With that in mind, CyberMaxx, an MSP that specializes in healthcare and financial services, has partnered with Logi Analytics to integrate Logi Info into CyberMaxx's MAXX Data Defense Systems suite of managed security services and solutions, which provide around-the-clock security monitoring and personalized protection against cyberattacks.

"Enterprises are dealing with an increasing volume of threats, and MSSPs entrusted with protecting these firms can't afford to lose their knowledge advantage – or else breaches will only continue," said Brett Hansen, CMO at Logi Analytics. "With the Logi Symphony suite of services – including Logi Info – CyberMaxx is now able to embed powerful data analytics, reporting, and visualization capabilities into their MAXX suite of managed services."

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Logi also has offices in Ireland, England, Ukraine, and China. Its Logi Info can be connected to any data source and allows organizations to integrate custom analytics in their applications. The company also recently announced a partnership with Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based physical security solutions, to deploy Logi Composer as part of Brivo’s next-generation security platform.

This collaboration among others will allow enterprises increased access to the services they need to reduce the threat of cyberattacks as they digitize their operations.
