MSP Checklist

Despite increased awareness of the importance of strong cybersecurity measures, many small to medium-sized MSPs continue to believe that their networks (and their customers’) can fly under any hacker’s radar. The scary truth is SMBs have become more vulnerable to cyberattacks with the increased use of cloud technologies over the last year. In fact, SMBs are 61% more likely to be targeted for a hack in 2020, up from 53% last year.

With cybersecurity incidents increasing month over month, every MSP is dependent on a well-planned, multilayer cybersecurity plan. You can only protect your MSP against unwanted ransomware attacks, cloud data breaches, and attacks on endpoint devices in 2021 if you address all security threats with a multifaceted security strategy.
