Whether you’re providing managed services to small businesses or to major global enterprises, offering an array of security-based specialties and products to your clients is more important than ever for all Managed Service Providers (MSPs).
Just consider the alarming security stats of 2021. Forbes found that “the year 2020 broke all records when it came to data lost in breaches and sheer numbers of cyber-attacks on companies, government, and individuals.”
Not only has the frequency of attacks increased, but so has the level of sophistication. Hackers have learned to apply today’s advanced technology – think artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc. – to their attacks, and the risk of facing a serious data breach is higher than ever.
What This Means for MSPs
Companies have come to realize that developing and carrying out a security plan is inherent, especially considering the evolving compliance needs. For example, the NIST 800-171 compliance regulations and CMMC requirements set in place for defense contractors. There are many other compliance types to consider as well, such as PCI, SOX, HIPAA, CCPA, and FISMA.
Because of this, it’s no surprise that small businesses and major corporations alike have started to invest more in outsourcing security services through MSPs. So what does this mean for your MSP business?
It’s clearly good news for the MSP industry; the higher demand for smart security practices has led more companies to explore managed services for things like monitoring, reporting, and securing their day-to-day and big-picture practices.
This means greater potential for future business for MSPs. But when it comes to actually delivering security-based services, there’s a big problem that many MSPs face…
The Problem: Lacking the Time & Resources to Deliver Quality Service
There’s a long list of different services that MSPs can specialize in, including:
- Managed IT Services
- Professional IT Services and Projects
- Backup and Discovery Recovery
- Networking Infrastructure
- Cloud Computing
- And More!
If you’re not already offering security services, adding them to your current services/products list will take a lot of time, resources, skill, and knowledge. Many MSPs already have a full plate and don’t have the time or resources to start offering security services and features like penetration testing or incident response to their clients.
And let’s not forget that many MSPs simply don’t want to take on the added responsibilities that come along with enhancing security for their clients.
Even if you have the time, money, and manpower to deliver security-centric services, maybe you’d rather focus on what you do best, like carrying out projects or providing IT support.
How VAAXA Can Help
At VAAXA, we believe that every MSP should be focusing on what’s important and what they do best. Rather than dumping an infinite amount of time, resources, and manpower into delivering cybersecurity services that you’re not already an expert on, the better option is to outsource to a specialist who is already well-versed in security.
That’s where we come in. VAAXA now offers white-labeled security services for MSPs, which are specifically designed to give an MSP the ability to offer security services to clients – without actually doing the work.
This makes it possible to instantly add security services to your current offering while acting as the middle man. And since enhancing security is so important right now, many of your clients are likely to express interest.
Even by outsourcing the security services you provide to your clients, it’s still possible to profit – just without all the work and responsibility.
