There have been a couple of occasions where issues happened, and [TPx Communications] has been able to resolve them without my involvement, other than just being notified. As far as I'm concerned, that does everything that I want it to do." — IT Systems Manager, Audio-Visual Company
2020 has seen a steady and continued trend of continued attacks against MSPs. Unfortunately for many SMBs, they have been brought into a new reality: They are included as victims by inheritance through their use of MSPs, often through no fault of their own. These SMBs are stuck in an ultimate catch-22. As they are far too small to effectively invest in their own IT management, partnering with an MSP makes sense. Yet this partnership can be fraught with new risks, many of which the SMB sector itself doesn't fully recognize.

Thank you for shining a light on this systemic vulnerability. I don't think organizations realize that, in many ways, they inherit the security of their service providers. As another commenter noted, the RMM is overdue for radical reinvention. Security-minded MSPs may need to think about delegated access to customer environments, privileged access workstations, or other methods for remotely administering customer environments without that big fat one-to-many target that RMM represents. I think the MSP tooling ecosystem is general is problematic - MSPs design for scale and efficiency (making them an economical option for customers as opposed to hiring internally), but do I really want my password manager integrated into my RMM? Maybe not... There's a lot of market share out there waiting for MSPs that can develop real cybersecurity maturity.
