MSPs Say Remote Work, Security Are Fueling Their Cloud Business
Even with cloud computing seeming ubiquitous, there is still opportunity for MSPs to sell customers cloud services and help them optimize their existing investment. Here’s what MSPs tell CRN about how they’re forging ahead.
Obviously, in the aftermath of the pandemic, I think that the workplace has been becoming redefined. Companies are beginning to wonder whether they’re more productive, having remote situations or hybrid situations versus being on-premises.
And a lot of people, increasingly, are beginning to realize that you can really be productive in a mobile situation. Of course, a key technology that makes that possible is the cloud. For that reason, people are beginning to look at the cloud in a very serious way.
