Cybercrime is on the rise, and the number and variety of security threats is continuously expanding. Cybercrime damage could cost as much as $6 trillion annually by 2021, per research from Cybersecurity Ventures.
All businesses, regardless of size, need IT security and data protection to help combat the heightened threat landscape. And yet, according to a recent study by Barracuda MSP and The 2112 Group, only 15 percent of MSPs surveyed said they sell security services, while 62 percent were considering adding security to their services portfolio.
At the same time, many small to midsize businesses (SMBs) are relying on their MSPs to provide the type of security needed to avoid a data breach because they don’t have the expertise or staffing to handle it themselves.'Not only is there a growing demand for security services; many of your customers already assume you have all their security and data protection needs covered.' ~ Neal Bradbury, Barracuda MSPClick To Tweet
