There is so much reliance today in managed services. IT is moving away from on-premises systems to PaaS, IaaS, and SaaS. It’s far more difficult to monitor services like this manually. Managed Service Providers (MSP) need to have the proper tools to gain detailed visibility into these new workspaces. Liongard’s flagship product, Roar, is here to help.
Roar allows MSP engineers to access data that unifies management across cloud, network, and on-premises systems by increasing visibility. IT teams are constantly adding new tools to their workloads and this can create congestion. The more tools used, the more problems Managed Service Providers deal with every day. Having detailed visibility brings this tools together and allows for a more cohesive IT environment.
Managing the complexity of the app and cloud-driven IT infrastructure can be difficult. Management capabilities need to keep up with the recent explosion of IT technologies. The recent increase in data breaches has been proof that management technologies are staggering behind. Proper visibility creates a more secure environment, as you can recognize breaches faster and react efficiently.
Perhaps the most significant impact of Roar is the increase in security. Roar provides pre-incident visibility towards the management of unsecured changes and assessment of potential risks. They automate the assessment process, allowing MSPs to go beyond manual checks. MSPs using Roar are able to create more actionable insights because they don’t waste time doing assessments. Putting out fires is never the optimal strategy for security.
Monitoring user changes is a prominent feature of Roar. Specifically, it alerts MSPs when administrators are added or removed. It also detects when dormant accounts suddenly become active again, eliminating a vulnerable oversight. Roar goes as far as notifying users about the use of weak or default passwords. This kind of insight allows enterprises to manage their employees effectively, preventing problems from user-error. Traditional passwords are never enough, but Roar can help you maintain security.
