Last week, Felicia attended the WatchGuard Partner Conference (QPC Security is one of the top 10 WatchGuard Network Architects in the Western Hemisphere, and a Gold Partner). It is important to stay on top of the latest trends, tools, and threats in the cybersecurity landscape as it is crucial for protecting our clients, but other than gaining valuable insights into WatchGuard's roadmap on services and products, we value events like these for the opportunity to share our expertise and represent our clients.

At QPC Security, we have always been a strong advocate and influencer for the technology paradigm we believe is necessary to protect clients. As cliched as it may sound - we believe that we need to be the change that we want to see. An integral part of this is providing a channel for technology manufacturers to hear about the changes that our clients need.

Felicia was the most prolific contributor to the event chat for the technical track at the conference. As a well-regarded expert in EPDR, Felicia also received inquiries from other WatchGuard partners about the solution, and fielded questions about advanced microsegmentation strategies for network security. The conference was also an opportunity to catch-up with friends.

MSPs need to have a hardcore technical CISO who can represent their clients' interests to technology manufacturers. This requires the ability to straddle the technical and business aspects of the equation: a deep understanding of the technology at play, intimate knowledge of clients' unique needs and challenges, and the savvy to negotiate with vendors to secure the best deals and features.

A strong technical CISO can make all the difference in MSP-client relationships, as they can provide strategic guidance on security investments, assess vendors' claims and products, and ensure that clients get the most value out of their security solutions. They can also act as a liaison between the MSP and the vendor, helping to resolve issues and identify opportunities for innovation.

If you are looking for a partner who can help you navigate the complex cybersecurity landscape, advocate for your interests, and deliver results, we would love to talk to you.
