Cybersecurity Ecosystem Trends:
The Strategic Role of MSPs


Bitdefender commissioned Canalys, a leading global technology market analyst firm with a distinct channel focus, to explore the strategic role of Managed service providers ( MSPs )  in today’s cybersecurity ecosystem.  

According to Canalys, threat levels have skyrocketed with reported ransomware attacks witnessing a 110% YoY increase in the first half of the year. The dark industry of ransomware continues to thrive, now estimated to be worth over US$500 million annually. 

Cybersecurity demands have evolved beyond mere administration to encompass a wider range of services, especially due to heightened threats and a workforce gap. While many MSPs excel in protection, areas like detection and response require significant investment.  

Read our report and see why forming partnerships with the right cybersecurity vendors is crucial for MSPs, since the need to offer higher cybersecurity protection has increased significantly.
