Cybersecurity Trends to Watch in Managed Services in 2023

As technology evolves, so do the threats and challenges in the cybersecurity landscape. In 2023, managed services providers (MSPs) and organizations will face new and emerging cybersecurity trends that demand attention. Staying ahead of these trends is crucial to ensure robust security measures, protect sensitive data, and mitigate potential risks. In this blog, we will explore the key cybersecurity trends to watch in managed services in 2023.

Emerging Cybersecurity Trends for Managed Services Providers:

  • Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in Cybersecurity
  • Heightened Focus on Cloud Security
  • Incident Management Automation and Orchestration
  • Social Engineering Attacks
  • Multiple Threat Feed Integration to Gain Larger Threat Landscape Visibility
  • Emphasis on Zero-trust Architecture
  • Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in Cybersecurity:

    Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies are being utilized to detect and respond to cyber threats in real-time. MSPs are leveraging and continuing to explore the ways to enhance AI-powered threat detection tools. AI and ML help MSPs to augment threat detection, anomaly detection, and behavior analysis capabilities.

  • Heightened Focus on Cloud Security:

    As more organizations continue to migrate their workloads and data to the cloud, the need for robust cloud security becomes crucial. MSPs will focus on providing effective security solutions for cloud-based environments, such as secure configuration management, data encryption, and real-time monitoring of cloud resources.

  • Incident Management Automation and Orchestration:

    The increasing complexity and volume of cyber threats require efficient and automated security processes. MSPs are adopting to security automation and orchestration platforms to streamline incident response, automate routine security tasks, and enable faster threat containment with high end technologies. For achieving accuracy, MSPs are including the Cyber Analytics to make data driven decisions.

  • Social Engineering Attacks:

    These attacks continue to be a significant concern in the realm of cybersecurity. Social engineering involves manipulating individuals into divulging sensitive information or performing actions that can be exploited by attackers. Phishing, pretexting, baiting, and other social engineering techniques remain prevalent. Attackers often leverage social engineering to bypass technical security controls and exploit human vulnerabilities.

  • Multiple Threat Feed Integration to Gain Larger Threat Landscape Visibility:

    Managed service providers are integrating multiple threat intelligence feeds into their security operations centers (SOCs). These feeds provide up-to-date information about emerging threats, vulnerabilities, and attack patterns. By aggregating and analyzing data from various sources, MSPs can gain better visibility into the threat landscape and respond proactively to potential security incidents.

  • Emphasis on Zero-trust Architecture:

    Zero-trust architecture is gaining popularity as a cybersecurity approach that assumes no implicit trust toward any user or device. It enforces strict access controls, continuous authentication, and real-time monitoring to prevent unauthorized access. Managed service providers are incorporating zero-trust principles into their security frameworks to enhance overall protection.

In 2023, cybersecurity trends in managed services are expected to prioritize proactive threat detection and response, leveraging AI and automation for real-time protection. Additionally, a growing focus on regulatory compliance and data privacy will shape the managed services landscape.
