MSPs to continuously manage cybersecurity posture with Liongard’s Configuration Change Detection and Response
Houston, TX, November 09, 2023 – Liongard, 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 Information Technology (IT) organizations with data-driven automation and response capabilities to continuously maintain their cybersecurity posture.
Data breaches, with unprecedented focus and substantial financial consequences, have seen a notable surge in costs, according to the 2023 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 2023 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.
