How to Overcome Cloud Fear with Your Customers

Thursday, February 18, 2016  2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT

datto The lack of knowledge around the cloud is a problem, but what's even worse (and even scarier), is that people are embarrassed to admit it. Pretending to understand something in fear of embarrassment slows down educational efforts, compelling people to continue avoiding the cloud rather than embrace it—feeding into the "fear.” All that said, most people still believe the cloud is the future, whether they understand it or not. In this webinar, Samantha Ciaccia, Datto's Channel Engagement Manager will lead a discussion on some of the issues behind this lack of knowledge and fear, ways to overcome them, and how to position the cloud as a reality, not some obscure idea only some people understand.


Apps Between the Gaps: Burning Down the IT Backlog with Rapid Application Development

Thursday, February 25, 2016  2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT

This trend is enabling cloud solution providers to evolve into trusted strategic advisors earning new clients within IT & Business Units and recurring revenue with unheard of margins from a platform set on disrupting the application development market. It’s also leaving pure play hardware and on-premises solution providers lagging behind.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Enter an untapped market segment without a major technology investment
  • Enable your clients to eliminate spreadsheets, data leakage, and development costs
  • Clear out your customer’s official IT project backlog in hours or days —not weeks or months – and keep it clear.
  • Develop much-needed cloud apps that customers can rely on

Building a Successful MSSP Service with Breach Detection

Thursday, March 10, 2016  2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT

EventTracker Cyber-attacks are on the rise and no business is immune from the latest threats. Managed Service Providers (MSPS) can turn that situation into an opportunity by creating and offering protection services as part of their bandoleer of MSP provided solutions.

  • Research shows that businesses are experiencing active breaches on 2% or more of endpoints in the organization and those breaches are going undetected.
  • Research shows that on average, malware can exist on the network for as much as 200 days before being detected.

By adding security services, MSPs can become MSSPs and deal with those threats directly, preventing customers from becoming their own worst enemies, and eliminating the scourge of outdated, partially effective methods to protect their sensitive data and shift the protection vector from after the fact remediation to effective detection and active prevention.

While such solutions are usually complex and require hard-to-find security expertise, in this webinar, you will learn

  • How breach detection, delivered as a cloud-based service, can be rapidly deployed to your customers network, with minimal investment on your part.
  • How to transform yourself from an MSP to an MSSP and capture your share of this $1.3B market.
