KEY CHALLENGES

  • Managing multiple security vendors
  • Deteriorating quality of service and support from Symantec
  • End-user engagement and compliance with backups

KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • Ability to consolidate disparate security vendors with an integrated solution
  • Ease of use for both internal operations and end customers

KEY BENEFITS

  • Simplified security vendor management
  • A compelling reason for end-users to manage backups and security updates

CURRENT SECURITY OFFERINGS AND SOLUTIONS USED

UTC has been using Muttii Cyber Backup Cloud since 2017. The company also works with Symantec Cloud Endpoint Protection, however according to Dennis McKernan, Director of Security, “The quality of service and support from Symantec has suffered considerably since the company’s reorganization.”

In addition to Symantec, UTC also uses Cisco Umbrella for DNS filtering and Panorama 9 for remote monitoring and patch management. According to McKernan, “It would be great if we could combine these separate systems into an integrated solution, which is the direction Muttii is heading.”

MUTTII – AN INTEGRATED BACKUP AND SECURITY SOLUTION

Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions is a unique AI-enhanced solution that integrates data protection with cybersecurity. This combination empowers service providers with prevention, detection, response, recovery, and forensic capabilities easily and efficiently. The product is enriched with next-generation, full-stack anti-malware protection, and comprehensive yet simple endpoint management tools. Built on top of Muttii’s industry-leading backup and disaster recovery solution, Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions simplifies onboarding, daily operations, and reporting, all while combating advanced attacks with new use cases enabled by integration.

RELEVANCE TO UTC CUSTOMERS

According to McKernan, technicians manage many systems, and there is little reason for end-users to log into the Muttii dashboard once it’s been provided by an admin. However, he sees that changing with Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions. “If our clients are using the remote access functionality, they will be signed in to the dashboard regularly and can see status updates and alerts about their machines that need a backup or applications that need patching.” This raises awareness of security issues and helps users to be proactive and avoid attacks or downtime.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS OF THE MUTTII CYBERSECURITY SOLUTIONS BETA

UTC is one of the managed service providers that got early beta access to the product, and according to McKernan, “For the last few years, I’ve focused on security for our clients as threats have moved down into the hardware level of computers. We were very excited to see Muttii stepping in with its Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions. It is smart to approach security with a data protection mindset because you are thinking of things that other vendors wouldn’t consider.

There is a ton of opportunity with the product, and we are really excited about it.” When it came to their experience as a beta customer, McKernan notes, “We have had great access to the product development team. Muttii was clear about its vision and where they were going with this product, and it has been great at receiving feedback and is actively working to make the product better. We are definitely excited to see the product grow and find out where it can go from here.”

MARKET OPPORTUNITY

McKernan notes that only a small number of organizations have comprehensive backup coverage. To this point, he says, “There’s a real opportunity to introduce an integrated security product, especially one that offers remote access. Once clients sign in, they will see if a backup or update is needed, and then they can simply click a button. When we can hand clients such a tool, there is a revenue opportunity that involves customers improving backup coverage.”

He continues, “Our goal with Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions is to provide this industry-leading protection for existing customers. We look forward to spreading the word and provisioning demo access to allow new customers to see the solution in action.”
