A recent survey of more than 1,600 MSPs found that the top three products and services they offered included help desk services, network support (WiFi, switching, and routing), and productivity software.1 While that’s all well and good in terms of your company’s revenue source, what happens when one of your important clients becomes the victim of an email phishing scam? It’s more likely to happen than you might think. Consider these statistics:2
- 43% of cyberattacks target small businesses
- Small businesses lose more than $2.2 million a year to cybercrime
- 83% of these businesses don’t have money put aside to deal with such an attack.
- 94% of malware delivered to small businesses was by phishing emails
- New small business cyber breaches rose 424% in 2019
- Nearly half of all small businesses (47%) say they don’t know how to protect themselves against cyberattacks.
- 60% of small businesses that become a victim of cybercrime go out of business in just six months.
All of this adds up to the fact that as an MSP you run the risk of losing the very clients who are looking to you to keep them safe in the event of a cybersecurity nightmare.

A typical MSP offers an array of services, including on-sight technical support and installations, remote monitoring and troubleshooting, basic cybersecurity measures, cloud-based operations support, and uptime guarantees. What stands out most on this list is the fact that cybersecurity – the very thing that can demolish a company – is offered at only a ‘basic’ level. Perhaps it’s because so many businesses believe that cybercrime is something nobody can really control. Well, that’s not true, and adding the top level of email phishing protection available could be the differentiating factor that helps you get (and keep) new customers.
