Ransomware 101: What MSPs Need To Know To Protect Their Customers

When it comes to Ransomware, everyone is a target. The traditional thinking of small organizations being “too small” for an attack is dangerously misguided, as evidenced by the fact that, nearly 42% of small businesses fell victim to a ransomware attack in 2021. The majority of these businesses are the primary clientele for MSPs and rely upon their MSP for help in ensuring the security of their business.

The challenge for many MSPs is that cybersecurity can be overwhelmingly complex, leaving many MSPs struggling to find resources, skilled talent, and easy-to-use, effective tools. To remain competitive, they need to understand how ransomware attacks affect not only their business but that of their customers.
