I was worried about my MSP and made changes before it became a problem
I had my offices servers and applications at an MSP that had its own  data center, but the service and performance was terrible, and we had a feeling that security was simply not up to par with what we needed for HIPAA compliance and disaster recovery.  Our medical offices throughout New Jersey could not afford any downtime.   I met with several other vendors and finally found one that provided honest advice and recommendations.  Baroan Technologies really stood apart from the rest and migrated us to Microsoft Azure. This way we know that it is not up to a basic MSP like Synoptek anymore, but the servers are really in Azure.  I also like that I'm not in a vendor lock with any MSP.  I can transfer the Azure servers to the management of any company that I want.  Baroan handles everything for a fixed fee.  We have two factor  MFA with DUO and Microsoft for our email, our terminal server,  just about everything.   I got peace of mind, so I never have to think about a disaster like what happened with Synoptek and their customers.   I recommend that any business that has their servers at the private data center of any MSP should question why it is so.  Find an IT vendor like Baroan Technologies  that cares more about your business then just their own interests and take steps before there is a disaster.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
