Webinar: Find success by transitioning to managed services

Posted by Anne Campbell on Apr 12, 2017 9:30:00 AM

It’s a good time to be an MSP. Markets and Markets predicts the global managed services market will grow to $242 billion by 2021 at a compound annual growth rate of 10.8 percent. MSPs have high expectations for the impact this growth will have on their businesses.

According to CompTIA’s 5th Annual Trends in Managed Services report, half of the service providers surveyed predict that the managed services portion of their business will undergo high growth over the next two years and make up 75 percent or more of their total annual revenue. Another 45 percent of respondents expect to see managed services increase and account for at least half of their total revenue in the same time period.

New deployment options for Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jan 23, 2017 10:57:48 AM

As today’s IT environments get more advanced and threats become more sophisticated, managed service providers need to secure their SMB customers’ networks no matter where those networks are running. Some businesses are transitioning to public cloud deployments, while others are opting moving to fully virtualized environments. As an MSP, you need to be able to offer these types of customers that same level of protection as more traditional on-premise networks.

That’s why we’re introducing two new deployment options for Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition: a virtual firewall that is compatible with VMware, XenServer, KVM, and Hyper-V; and public cloud options designed to protect your customers’ digital assets in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, or Google Cloud Platform deployments.

Ransomware’s growing impact on healthcare security and HIPAA compliance

Posted by Anne Campbell on Nov 9, 2016 1:18:53 PM

Ransomware skyrocketed in 2016, with the FBI reporting an average of 4,000 ransomware attacks per day — a 300-percent increase since 2015. This has been especially bad news for healthcare organizations, which have been hit hard by this type of cyberattack that works quickly to encrypt files and then holds them hostage until a ransom is paid.  

In February, one of the first widely reported hospital ransomware attacks targeted Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in California, forcing the hospital to pay roughly $17,000 in ransom and resort to pen-and-paper record keeping until their files could be restored.  Since then, numerous hospitals and healthcare organizations around the country have faced similar attacks. For example, MedStar Health, which operates 10 facilities in the Baltimore-Washington region, was hit with ransomware, but it was able to recover without paying the ransom because it had backups in place for the encrypted information.

4 ways to improve your customer service as an MSP

Posted by Anne Campbell on Nov 2, 2016 9:26:00 AM

Be honest. Does your MSP provide exceptional customer service? Odds are you don’t. Jay Baer, author of Hug Your Haters, explained at Content Marketing World last month that 80 percent of businesses say they deliver exceptional customer service, but only 8 percent of customers agree. That’s a major disconnect.

MSPs should see this as an opportunity. Jay pointed out that exceptional customer service is so rare it’s memorable, and that can work in your favor. By delivering memorable MSP customer service experiences, you can differentiate your MSP from the competition and grow your business by attracting — and retaining — more customers.

How to you make that happen? Here are a few ways to get started:
