15 Hot Products MSPs Need To Know In Security, Cloud, AI
A number of vendors took to the XChange show floor to showcase new offerings aimed at MSPs that hold the potential to improve partners’ business. Here are 15 standouts.
With its recently launched extended detection and response (XDR) platform, Blumira aims to bring enterprise-grade XDR technology to SMBs, according to the company.
The Blumira XDR platform brings together security information and event management (SIEM) with endpoint visibility and capabilities for automated response, the company said. The automated response capabilities include automatic isolation of a host after a potential threat is detected, enabling containment of the threat until an investigation can be performed, according to the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company.
On SIEM, meanwhile, Blumira offers a SIEM that is “actually built for IT admins,” said Jeremy Young, director of partner strategy at Blumira, in an interview with CRN. Key features include simplified configuration and guidance about how to remediate issues that are found using the tool, he said. “When you get a finding, it comes with detailed analysis and step-by-step instructions on what to do about it. So we take this really advanced tool and boil it down to something where a Tier 1 analyst can follow the instructions to remediate.”
Ultimately, up until now, “most SIEMs haven’t been attainable, affordable or usable for SMBs,” Young said. “And that’s our mission —to make this advanced security tool something that people who have been living below the security poverty line for a long time can actually use.”
