At DattoCon19 this week, Beachhead Solutions said that its SimplySecure for MSPs now offers upgraded BitLocker management along with other security features designed to help MSPs deliver Compliance-as-a-Service and win more client business.
“We continue to support MSPs across EMEA with built-for-MSP security solutions that help them grow their business by unlocking new revenue potential through security automation, remote access control, and enhanced compliance with GDPR, Cyber Essentials and others – especially when MSPs’ clients have lost or stolen devices,” says Amit Parbhucharan, General Manager for EMEA, Beachhead Solutions.
Beachhead says it will also release its integration module for Datto Autotask PSA with the 6.5 update – available to all MSP customers – which provides added value for event alerting, automated ticketing, and integrated billing data for service/contract billing. These feature additions are all aimed at boosting MSP productivity for those using Datto’s Autotask PSA platform, and there will be no additional charge for this module, it says.
Following the DattoCon Paris conference and SimplySecure 6.5, Beachhead Solutions and Datto next plan to integrate SimplySecure for MSPs with Datto RMM, the cloud-based remote monitoring and management platform that enables MSPs to scale and improve service delivery operations.
One of the primary feature upgrades included in SimplySecure 6.5 is stronger and simpler management of BitLocker encryption. Importantly, MSPs can now automate BitLocker deployment in mixed environments where MSP clients have an inventory of PCs and servers that may or may not have TPM chips initialised in the BIOS. BitLocker deployment and support challenges continue to be hidden costs for MSPs; streamlining management regardless of MSP client device inventories and BitLocker activations is a significant asset offered by SimplySecure 6.5.
Additional key upgrades in SimplySecure for MSPs 6.5 include:
- Improved and streamlined deployment, as well as better management capabilities of FileVault on Macs, EFS on Windows, and BitLocker on Windows;
- Additional security control for USB storage devices;
- Upgraded computer risk and encryption status monitoring capabilities;
- Console UI improvements
- Improvements for agent deployments via any RMM tool.
