Stay Ahead of Cyber Threats with Blackpoint Updates

Stay Ahead of Cyber Threats with Blackpoint Updates

By Greg Tavarez

Managed service providers and their customers continue to find themselves squarely in the sights of cyber criminals in an always changing cyberthreat landscape. Although innovative solutions continue to roll out, MSPs still find themselves blindsided by sophisticated attacks because they lack proper visibility.

Partners need a 24/7 MDR service that will detect breaches earlier and provide an actual response rather than just an alert to keep networks safe from widespread damage. Driven to innovate its product stack, including its MDR solution, Blackpoint released multiple product launches and updates – Blackpoint Response, Managed Defender for Endgame, macOS agent and vulnerability scan.

“Bundled offerings and protection for a more diverse range of work environments ensures that Blackpoint partners are getting the maximum possible coverage with the fastest ROI,” said Jon Murchison, Blackpoint’s CEO.

Blackpoint Response is a cost-effective package includes managed detection and response, cloud response, and managed defender for endpoint. The package will provide customers the tools they need to protect their modern, hybrid workflows.

Blackpoint expanded on its integration with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint by making a fully managed version of this service available through Blackpoint Response. As MDE becomes more popular, their team wanted to make the solution effective and easy to use. Partners will now control the MDE policies within the Blackpoint portal, applying them to multiple customers at a time.

Blackpoint’s flagship MDR product, SNAP-Defense, is available to monitor and respond to threats on Apple devices running macOS. This comes after many requests from Blackpoint’s partner community. As the macOS market share in business settings continues to grow, Blackpoint partners now have the capability to provide protection to those assets.

Blackpoint's reengineered its external vulnerability scanning tool to improve accuracy and design. Partners will use this free tool to educate their prospects and customers of known vulnerabilities, in turn, demonstrating their need for managed security services.

With these four updates, Blackpoint will assist partners in defending their evolving work environment to keep their networks secure.

“Cybersecurity products are no longer a luxury, but a necessity, so we aim to provide the highest quality solutions available to keep our customers secure and insurable,” said Murchison.
