N-able has announced it is collaborating with the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC) to help create a more secure global ecosystem and work towards helping reduce security risk for MSPs and their customers.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) established JCDC in August 2021 to transform traditional public-private partnerships into real-time private-public operational collaboration.
The JCDC 2023 Planning Agenda helps advance cybersecurity and reduce supply chain risk for small and medium critical infrastructure entities through collaboration with remote monitoring and management, managed service providers, and managed security service providers.
Dave MacKinnon, Chief Security Officer at N-able said, “by having the opportunity to collaborate with JCDC, we’re aiming to develop guidelines designated to make sure we're not only helping our customers manage their security posture with our products but also helping to create a more secure MSP ecosystem. And that should be critical for all of us. To me, it doesn’t matter whether they're N-able customers or not. It’s important we provide a secure global ecosystem for all MSPs and their customers.”
The collaboration with JCDC gives N-able and its partners access to expertise from both JCDC and JCDC members, who work together to gather, analyse, and share information about the latest cybersecurity threats. Working with JCDC also provides information and resources to help MSPs continue the shift from reacting to threats and vulnerabilities, to proactively planning and taking steps to mitigate them in the threat landscape.
