Kaseya CEO: MSPs Are ‘Playing With Fire’ If They Can’t Get Their Customers To Pay For Security

‘For example, let‘s assume a dental practice of 25 employees as a standard MSP customer. How many of those dental practices are willing to pay every three months to certify every employee on security awareness training, like don’t click on links? …The bad guys know the dental practice is the one that‘s probably going to bite,’ says Kasey CEO Fred Voccola in an interview with CRN.

 

You mentioned that Kaseya has single sign-on for everything. Doesn’t that open the possibility of somebody maybe getting in and breaching a part of Kaseya and having more access to the other products?  

No, we’ve had that single sign-on for everything Kaseya for years. With single sign-on access points, the way we compartmentalize our architecture, there are protocols that protect that. We’ll talk a lot about the architectures there, but the answer is no. Being able to breach as was demonstrated, you know, in July. One of our modules was breached and the breach didn’t expand beyond that module. It’s the same way that any single sign-on product in any architecture works.
