ConnectWise amplifies MSP cyberattack defence with Incident Response Service

ConnectWise has announced a new service offering designed to help managed service providers (MSPs) and their clients rapidly respond to attacks and recover from security incidents. The ConnectWise Incident Response Service provides direct, around-the-clock access to a team of expert cybersecurity analysts to provide immediate assistance to assess, contain, and remediate threats to minimize impact and business disruption.

According to the 2022 ConnectWise MSP Threat Report, there was a 10 to 15 per cent increase in ransomware incidents quarter-over-quarter in 2021, with 56 per cent of all incidents occurring in the second half of the year. For MSPs and their clients that often lack resources to properly respond to incidents, the ConnectWise Incident Response Service provides an immediate lifeline to skilled cybersecurity experts that accelerate incident resolution and help avoid mistakes that can be costly to business operations. It also aids in the recovery process with forensic examination of system data, user activity, and artifacts of digital evidence to determine the extent of the compromise and identify which threat actor might be involved. The ConnectWise Incident Response Service is available today to both ConnectWise partners and non-partners.
