ChannelPro 5 Minute Roundup
Freeman also took some time to provide his thoughts on Security Manager in his weekly ChannelPro 5 Minute Roundup for the week of November 28. In this latest installment, Freeman is joined by MSP industry expert Erick Simpson, Founder and Chief Strategist of ErickSimpson.com. In this short clip, the two discuss what SkyKick’s Security Manager means for the evolution of cloud computing.
“A pretty robust tool for dealing with cloud security. It’s interesting [to note] in a sense that the cloud security challenges has reached the point in the evolution of cloud computing that it really does need products that are 100% dedicated to it.”

Mark Cox, Managing Editor at ChannelBuzz.ca, has decades of channel experience covering the IT channel and recently sat down with SkyKick’s Co-CEO, Todd Schwartz, and Head of Cloud Management Products, Darren Peterson, to discuss the launch of Security Manager. The conversation was focused on how SkyKick’s newest product adds proactive security for Microsoft 365 – and why no one else has tried to address such a complex problem in the MPS market before.
“The automation behind this [Security Manager] to find and fix the problem is extremely complex, and it allows us to monitor and proactively heal things before a problem develops. It took us years to build, including 10 years building the platform as the engine. No one has tried to address this complex problem for the MSP market. It was a very hard problem to solve.”
– Todd Schwartz, SkyKick Co-CEO
