Charles Henson, Owner of Nashville Computer, recently shared his success story during a Cork webinar. Nashville Computer, an MSP deeply committed to robust cybersecurity practices, has significantly benefited from integrating Cork’s cyber warranty and monitoring platform into their service offerings.

The Journey to Success

Long-standing Experience and Expertise

Charles Henson started at Nashville Computer in 1991 and has grown the company from a part-time role to a leading MSP. Over 30 years, Nashville Computer has evolved by integrating advanced backup, disaster recovery, and security solutions, ensuring clients receive top-tier service.

Focus on Security and Compliance

At Nashville Computer, security is non-negotiable. Charles emphasized that their MSP services include a comprehensive security suite. They refuse to engage clients who don’t prioritize security, thus minimizing liability and ensuring only high-quality partnerships.

Adopting Marketing Strategies

Collaboration with marketing experts like Robin Robinson allowed Nashville Computer to grow exponentially, achieving significant revenue increases by strategically marketing their security-first services.

Integrating Cork’s Solutions

Seamless Integration with Existing Systems

Nashville Computer joined the Cork Partner Community and quickly integrated Cork’s cyber warranty and monitoring platform. The seamless API integration enabled Charles and his team to monitor client systems in real-time, identifying vulnerabilities and enhancing overall security hygiene.

“What I love about Cork is it has the API integration. With the API integration, it looks at our clients and our MSP, highlighting areas needing attention,” Charles explained. “It teaches us to maintain better hygiene when onboarding clients and ensures no leftover vulnerabilities.”

Proactive Cybersecurity Measures

With Cork, Nashville Computer could proactively address issues such as outdated software and misconfigurations, reducing the risk of cyber threats. Charles highlighted a specific instance where Cork notified them of a zero-day vulnerability in Palo Alto firewalls, allowing immediate action to protect clients.

“Cork is always the first to notify us of any vulnerabilities. This allows us to take immediate action, ensuring our clients’ systems are secure,” said Charles.

Charles reported that offering Cork’s warranty separately from their managed services agreement allowed for clear value differentiation and profitability tracking. Clients appreciated the transparency and additional protection, making it an easy sell.
