Data is everywhereon premises, in the cloud, on mobile devices and in transit. Unfortunately, hackers know this all too well and look for vulnerabilities in your organization’s security systems. You not only need to protect your data, you also need to take steps to keep the data of your customers and partners safe.

It’s important—though challenging—to stay on top of the latest developments in cybersecurity. By keeping up to date and offering the latest cybersecurity technologies and services, you can help your clients thwart increasingly sophisticated attacks and protect their data from threats.  

AI delivers new opportunities in cybersecurity

First, let’s consider the current landscape for cybersecurity. Technology in the space focuses primarily on servers, network devices and endpoints. Data protection solutions consist of anti-malware management, patch management, device hardening, data loss/leakage prevention, configuration compliance management, mobile device management (MDM) and more.

Over the past few years, artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms have developed into a promising trend as more cybersecurity vendors like Symantec, McAfee, FireEye and others use them to add additional muscle to their capabilities.

Now that cyberattackers are employing automation to launch more expansive and sophisticated strikes, vendors can turn to AI to quickly identify and analyze security weaknesses and help mitigate attacks, minimizing the fallible human element in cybersecurity. Developing or reselling AI-based cybersecurity solutions makes it possible to rapidly grow your business while helping your customers secure their data more quickly.

Compliance and vendor management add complexity

The growing demand for cybersecurity solutions presents a huge opportunity for your business. However, adding this category to your portfolio requires partnerships with cybersecurity providers—and managing these relationships requires more time and resources. That’s why taking a do-it-yourself approach can be costly and inefficient.

More challenges arise with understanding security technology and compliance requirements, such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). These important measures were created to help keep confidential data secure, but they vary by country and are often updated periodically, making it tough to stay up on the newest compliance requirements.
