Making Money With Vulnerability Scanning
According to the latest IDC Market snapshot, network vulnerability scanning is a massive $ 1.2 billion market and growing at a rate of 15% annually. Large IT security companies currently dominate the market with high-end vulnerability scanning solutions designed for enterprises. These companies primarily sell directly to end users or through distributors, and their products are optimized for individual businesses. Most of them have high starting prices and their asset-based licensing models quickly bloat the cost of scanning multiple locations. Most managed service providers (MSPs) struggle to absorb this cost as part of their standard monthly service and have difficulty justifying the value of the high-priced scanning to their clients. This unfortunately creates a “devil and the deep sea” scenario where MSPs either have to sacrifice profits or provide less security to their clients. That is, until now.

They fail to understand that the longer their client relationships last, the more profitable they become. It’s a no-brainer from a cost perspective as well since acquiring a new client costs seven to 10 times more than retaining an existing client through contract renewal. The best way to solve this dilemma is by placing equal emphasis on each stage of the five-stage managed services lifecycle.
