Assessing the top MSPs trends in 2017 - How to become a next-generation MSP

Securing your future as an MSP - Secure IT

Greg Williams, Senior Sales Engineer APAC, Webroot | Greg Sharp, Managing Director, Base 2

Security-focused partners stand to capitalise following increased demand for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) in New Zealand, as businesses seek specialist security experts.

Coupled with an ever-changing malware and ransomware climate, and an increased need for expertise, the onus is now on MSPs to protect customers through next-generation security.

9:15-9:30AM

Securing your future as an MSP - Manage IT

Craig Allen, Technical Director APAC, Kaseya

As demand for managed service providers continues to rise, the need for the channel to apply best practices to automate and manage IT environments heightens.

In New Zealand, what does a next-generation MSP look like? And how are the market frontrunners managing IT?

9:30 - 9:45AM

Securing your future as an MSP - Back IT Up

Karl Thomson, Solution Evangelist APAC, StorageCraft | Jason Agnew, CEO, Belton IT

With security breaches evolving into a ‘not if, but when’ conversation for Kiwi businesses, further contingency methods must be in place when the first line of defence is breached.

Today, MSPs must implement business continuity to beat unexpected disasters, emphasising the need for strong and simple back-up solutions.

9:45-10AM
