CEO Keynote: Scale the Summit

The first event on our main stage truly set the bar high. In his keynote, Scale the Summit, Continuum CEO Michael George delivered his vision for the managed services industry, linking to key elements of mountaineering and how success will only come to those who are ready and able to go after it.

Some of the key themes he covered include the predicted shift in the market to be dominated by the top 20 percent of MSPs, the increasing proximity of cyber-attacks, and how security is the disruptor that cloud never turned out to be. Most importantly, Michael discussed how Continuum can help guide MSPs through the challenges and landscape that lies ahead, through the unveiling of the Continuum Security Go-To-Market Business Plan. 

The plan is a comprehensive program that gives providers proven advice, go-to-market strategies, access to marketing and sales assets and other content, enabling MSP leaders to tackle the challenges ahead powered by Continuum’s industry knowledge.

“If MSPs are to survive the disruption that security will bring to the industry, they need to be ready for the hard work ahead,” Michael George said. “And, they need more than an industry-leading solution to succeed during this market shift. That’s why we created the Continuum Security Go-To-Market Business Plan, knowing that MSPs need the right combination of technology and knowledge to win in this marketplace.”

Take a look at some of the many other highlights from Michael’s keynote: 

 

Continuum Security Cyber Attack Simulator

Live on the Partner Showcase floor, the Cyber Attack Simulator is a must-see event! It’s the first of its kind at Navigate, giving attendees an interactive look into how Continuum’s Security Operations Center (SOC) works with you to detect and respond to an active cyber threat.
