Organizations around the globe are creating, sharing, and storing vast amounts of data every day. As technology evolves and that data continues to grow, securing it is becoming more and more critical for businesses looking to keep their most valuable assets safe.
It’s no secret that cybersecurity has become an essential component within IT environments. In fact, Gartner predicts that worldwide spending on cybersecurity will reach $133.7 billion in 2022. According to the World Economic Forum, as of 2019, cyber-attacks are considered among the top five risks to global stability. Keeping data protected is imperative to keeping businesses afloat, and this holds especially true for SMBs and Managed Services Providers (MSPs).
What is an MSP?
TechTarget defines an MSP as, “…a company that remotely manages a customer’s IT infrastructure and/or end-user systems, typically on a proactive basis and under a subscription model.”
MSPs typically oversee IT systems and services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that don’t have the budget or resources available to hire in-house IT staff.
What are the challenges faced by MSPs?
MSPs share several common pain points when it comes to maintaining the IT services for their customers, as well as managing and expanding their own businesses.
- Business and Profitability Growth: MSPs are typically smaller businesses with limited resources, and have to focus on many moving parts at once (i.e. technology, sales, marketing). They need solutions that are affordable and will enable them to grow their businesses cost effectively, while also helping them bring on more customers and increase their revenue.
- Protecting Customer Data: With the demand for cybersecurity growing rapidly, MSPs need to be confident in the security solutions they’re providing their clients and keep up with all the latest advancements in technology. It’s also essential that their solutions meet compliance and regulation requirements, to remain competitive and reputable out in the field.
- Simplifying Complexities: Simplicity and flexibility are essential for MSPs, as they are typically managing IT environments for many different SMBs at once. They need technology solutions that are easy to implement, manage, and upgrade, as needs change.
