A new report from SolarWinds MSP outlines a huge opportunity for service providers. Four out of every fve businesses across the US and UK will change how they deal with security in the coming 12 months.
The study found that 17% of companies intend to switch their current service provider in the next 12 months, 10% want to cease outsourcing in favour of in-house management, and half (49%) plan to outsource security for the frst time within the year. This latter group represents an enormous opportunity for IT solution providers and MSPs able to prove their security services credentials.
The report, entitled The Path to MSSP examined the views of more than 400 SMEs and enterprises in the US and UK and explores the opportunity for MSPs in security. In particular, it looks at what it means to be a managed security service provider (MSSP) and the opportunities for MSPs considering this path.
