Apple Endpoint Security for MSPs: An In-Person Education – ChannelE2E

Amy Carr, senior director of marketing at Addigy, addresses the growing shift in customer behavior amongst MSPs’ client base. In today’s ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape, more customers have been moving towards a hybrid work model, resulting in perimeter-based security becoming almost obsolete in favor of identity management and endpoint security.

Amy also addresses the proliferation of Apple endpoints in the workplace and how that plays into a customer’s comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. This poses a pressing challenge to MSPs who have yet to expand their services to include Apple device management and appeal to a security-conscious Apple clientele. To address these challenges, Amy invites MSPs to attend Addigy’s annual conference ‘Addigy Innovate 2022’ to get access to Apple industry insights, attend workshops, and view product presentations by industry leaders in the Apple IT ecosystem.  Read this article to avoid the mistake of ignoring the revolutionary shift in the demand for Apple devices in the managed services market.
