Accelerating the Path to Managed Cybersecurity with M&A

MSPs operate in a challenging and competitive marketplace. Small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers increasingly view the core IT infrastructure support services MSPs have long provided as commodities. At the same time, competitors are growing larger and more sophisticated as industry consolidation continues. Private equity investments have created more than 80 MSP platforms that are aggressively pursuing add-on acquisition opportunities.

By automating the response to and remediation of some of the more common IT issues customers face, technicians are freed up to spend more time dealing with bigger issues. Ultimately, this means the business is able to handle more customers without having to invest in growing its technician base.
