How MSPs can enable remote collaboration for customers without jeopardising security
As COVID continues to loom large, companies from all around the world see no end in sight to the rise in virtual work and remote operations.
Remote-working collaboration tools have become a lifeline for businesses and their employees in their bid to stay connected and productive. Everyone from small businesses to corporate giants has been busy adopting cloud-based solutions.
This mass migration of data into the cloud, though, makes organisations much more vulnerable to ransomware attacks and other types of hacks.
The biggest challenge for security teams is the risk of losing visibility and control over how sensitive data is being managed and protected. Security should never be sacrificed as a trade-off for convenience and speed.
Cloud security challenges
As work has become more flexible, so have the ways in which we communicate and collaborate. Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace were already the productivity suites of choice for millions, but other software-as-a-service (SaaS) has also grown in popularity over the last 18 months, such as Salesforce.
However, the growth of cloud communication and collaboration amplifies the challenge of keeping sensitive data secure as it moves freely between the cloud and users, bypassing any perimeter-based security measures.
Managed service providers face a serious challenge as people switch between working from home, in coffee shops, the office or wherever they find themselves in transit.
When customers have employees working from multiple locations and using a mix of work issued and personally owned devices, how is it possible for MSPs to manage and protect the data that staff access and transfer?
How do MSPs protect their customers from data compromise and loss? And how do they do that without hindering the productivity of employees and giving the impression that there is a lack of trust in the staff?
The importance of strong user access management
As an MSP there will be times when you want to safely allow customers to back up or manage their own data, or securely provide them with more visibility as part of their managed service.
With the right processes and technology in place it is possible for administrators to customise granular permissions for customers and products, depending on access needs.
Are you able to manage and protect customer data within a single interface? And can you customise and control who has access to customer data?
