Why 6 Top Execs See XaaS As One Of 2023’s Biggest Opportunities: Cisco, HPE, Lenovo
Top exexcutives from some of the largest tech companies in the world have pinpointed XaaS as one of their biggest investment areas and a massive opportunity for partners in 2023 as businesses seek out more flexible, consumption-based IT solutions.
Kris Hagerman, CEO
Cybersecurity as a service (CSaaS) represents a massive opportunity for channel partners in 2023 and beyond. Today’s threat landscape is too difficult, too complex, and changes too quickly for the vast majority of organizations to effectively manage cybersecurity on their own, and the hard truth is that most probably shouldn’t even try. Managed detection and response (MDR) services, specifically the Sophos MDR service that spans an organization’s entire IT environment regardless of the security vendors and technologies already in place, constitutes the core of CSaaS. We have pivoted all of Sophos to embrace the opportunity of delivering CSaaS with industry best MDR capabilities that partners can use to better defeat persistent, well-funded and organized attackers targeting their customers. Our channel partners that adopt CSaaS and deliver Sophos MDR services to their customers are seeing tremendous success already this year, and that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
