N-able teams up with US cybersecurity agency on RMM tactics

Remote monitoring and management (RMM) software vendor N-able has announced it is working with the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to share expertise.

Dave MacKinnon, chief security officer at N-able, said collaboration would aim to develop further security guidelines on RMM.

“We’re not only helping our customers manage their security posture with our products but helping to create a more secure MSP ecosystem,” MacKinnon said in the announcement.

CISA’s Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC) was set up in 2021 with a view to collaborating with RMM companies and MSPs to tackle cybersecurity and supply-chain risk for small to mid-size critical infrastructure entities.

N-able said the idea is to transform “traditional” public-private partnerships into real-time private-public operational collaboration.

“The JCDC 2023 Planning Agenda helps advance cybersecurity and reduce supply chain risk for small and medium critical infrastructure entities through collaboration with remote monitoring and management, managed service providers, and managed security service providers,” according to N-able.

JCDC and its members work together to gather, analyse, and communicate information about the latest cybersecurity threats. Working with JCDC would also provide resources to help MSPs move towards more proactive defences against cyberthreats, N-able said.

Other cybersecurity companies collaborating with JCDC so far include SentinelOne, Forcepoint and TechGuard.

Government partners include US Cyber Command, the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the US Department of Defense, US Secret Service, and the Department of Homeland Security.
