Securing The Future
The XChange 2022 conference held in Dallas this week by CRN parent The Channel Company brought together 265 solution provider executives to get exclusive industry insight, build new strategic relationships, learn about emerging technologies and participate in peer networking events. These executives are on the front lines and therefore understand how top of mind security is for customers today.
Technology, training and usability were some of the biggest cybersecurity areas cited by XChange attendees in conversations with CRN editors, with solution providers calling out multifactor authentication, least privileged access, and SOAR (security orchestration, automation, and response) as some of the key cybersecurity technologies they’re doubling down on.
Solution providers are also focused on making better use of their existing security stack through training and education and identifying integration opportunities with tools already in place. The channel also wants to provide their SOCs (security operations centers) with greater visibility across the technology stack by incorporating the findings of disparate tools into a single, unified dashboard.
Here’s what XChange attendees said is the No. 1 cybersecurity bet they’re making right now.
