MSPs continuously manage security posture through automated systems documentation and configuration change detection and response

Houston, TX, November 09, 2023Liongard, the global leader in Configuration Change Detection and Response (CCDR), today announced strategic partnerships with MSPbots, Pia and Rewst.  Building upon the previously announced Gradient MSP partnership, these collaborations mark a continued significant step forward in Liongard’s dedication to its vision of empowering Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and IT organizations with data-driven automation and response capabilities to continuously maintain their security posture.

Data breaches, with unprecedented focus and substantial financial consequences, have seen a notable surge in costs, according to the IBM Security Cost of a Data Breach Report. The financial toll of these breaches has escalated by over 15%, increasing from $3.86 million in 2020 to a substantial $4.45 million in 2023. As outlined in Verizon’s 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report, an alarming 74% of all breaches involve a human element.  Developers and system administrators commit the most errors namely misconfigurations which are among the top three causes of data breaches, contributing to over 20% of incidents as highlighted in the 2023 report.

The IBM Security Cost of a Data Breach Report underscores the critical role of the breach lifecycle in determining financial impact, revealing a significant average cost difference of $1.02 million. Breaches identified and contained within 200 days incur a cost of $3.93 million for organizations, while those extending beyond 200 days result in a heightened financial toll of $4.95 million—a notable 23% difference.
