Enhancing Cybersecurity Resilience: The MSP’s Role of Penetration Testing and Compliance in Native Microsoft Cloud Environments

Presented by: Bruce McCully, Galactic Advisors

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, safeguarding your clients’ data infrastructure is more critical than ever. MSPs are continually faced with addressing prevalent challenges related to establishing and expanding Microsoft cloud practices and application management, especially when it comes to security and adhering to ever-evolving regulatory and compliance standards. Through the integration of penetration testing and compliance measures in Native Microsoft Cloud Environments, MSPs have a unique opportunity to not only enhance their Microsoft 365 and Azure offerings, but they can also create new revenue streams to grow their business. The challenge for most MSPs is the complexity of Microsoft Azure, Intune, and Endpoint Manager. This leads to neglecting certain areas that can lead to vulnerabilities and increase the risk of cyberattacks. Combine these complexities with cybersecurity and convoluted compliance regulations, and MSPs get lost in the fray. However, there is a simple way to assure security and compliance in even the most complex Microsoft Cloud environments. It starts with understanding the areas that are most often overlooked when performing penetration testing and during compliance gap analysis. There are also five common mistakes MSPs make when performing pen tests in Azure-hosted environments. This session will address both concerns and give MSPs all the knowledge they need to convince clients to make the necessary changes in their IT environment to remain secure and compliant while adding additional revenue to their MSP business.
