MSP vs. MSSP and what does that look like for IT Service Providers? The fact is that cybersecurity must be part of all service contracts in today’s environment. Scott Barlow, VP of Global MSP at Sophos joins Ryan to discuss leveraging vendor relationships in order to effectively service and secure your clients.
