It’s well known that many SMBs lack advanced security expertise. While many have some security tools in place, those tools rarely work together, often provide minimal protection, are not fully deployed or outdated, which creates significant security gaps. MSPs are strategically positioned to help SMBs with their security needs and to take advantage of a quickly growing market.
To better understand the dynamics and opportunities surrounding security services in the SMB space, 451 Research conducted two global custom surveys:
The first targeting 1,700 SMBs about the current state of cybersecurity services they consume to protect organization.
The second targeting 1,000 MSPs about the security services they deliver to the SMB market, as well as the pain points they experience.
[Security Services Fueling Growth for MSPs] white paper examines those responses to look at both the challenges and opportunities that service providers face with respect to delivery security services to SMBs. Topics covered include:
The SMB security challenge: overconfident and under-protected.
The growing SMB security opportunity.
MSPs stepping up their security game.
Key opportunities, challenges, and solutions for MSPs.

And that means avoiding overly complex implementations that are often too cumbersome to manage—and, in some cases, can lead to errors that inadvertently create security vulnerabilities instead of correcting them. Read on this article to learn the 8 must-have features to look for in an effective modern endpoint security solution.
