The October Partner Update video, sponsored by Veeam and Wasabi, highlights this month’s events happening at Pax8 and across the industry.


In this video, Jared Pangretic, SVP of Sales, talks about Cybersecurity Awareness Month with our Senior Director of Security and Compliance, Matt Lee.  Matt shares how MSPs can empower their security with specific playbooks and frameworks.


Earlier this year, Pax8 acquired Sea-Level Operations, and Jared talks with David Schafran, the Head of Strategic Coaching, about our newly created Value Creation Coaching services. Additionally, Jared and David discuss what type of MSPs are perfect candidates for the services.


He also shares where partners can find Pax8 throughout October at Pax8 and channel events in the US, Canada, and the UK. Finally, he closes out with some very useful cybersecurity tips from Brad Fugitt, our Chief Information Security Officer.
