The Post-COVID Landscape for MSPs

I recently had a great conversation with Jay McBain, Principal Analyst for Channels and Partnerships at Forrester, about how the economic downturn caused by COVID-19 will affect the channel – specifically the MSP Channel.

There was a lot of territory to cover: from looking at the current state of the channel to how many in the channel may (or may not) survive the economic hardship to examining the real opportunities the pandemic has created for MSPs.

I’ll recap our conversation below and you can watch the full interview as well, but long story short: while many in the channel will struggle to survive, there are also tremendous opportunities ahead.

Forrester Examines the ROI Enterprises Gain From Acronis Cyber Protection

Acronis recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that an enterprise can realize by deploying an Acronis Cyber Protection solution. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed the CIO of a manufacturer of high-performance equipment that has been using Acronis’ Cyber Protection solutions for approximately two years. This customer had also been hit by two ransomware attacks and was trying to upgrade its defensive strategy for the future.

The results were compelling and are summarized in this infographic.
