Endpoints are now the key focus for many managed service providers (MSP) to help meet the demands of cloud-based solutions.
According to an Autotask study, 62 per cent of MSPs are already managing between 100 and 2,500 endpoints and expect this to grow.
The study also showed that MSPs are using remote monitoring and management (RMM) solutions to help increase their visibility.
Ian van Reenen, general manager RMM product engineering, Autotask Corp said: “Increased adoption of cloud-based services and the proliferation of devices and endpoints have made meeting client reliability and security requirements even more complex.”
1,800 respondents were interviewed for the study, and 68 per cent ranked reliability as the key criteria for selecting a remote monitoring and endpoint management solution.
Autotask also revealed that networking and projects still account for nearly 40 per cent of MSP revenues for about three out of four of respondents.
Reenen added: “By building out their managed services portfolios with scalable endpoint management along with other cloud-related services, MSPs can more effectively meet a client’s evolving strategic needs and become a valued partner.”
