Managed security is a high-margin opportunity for those with the skills and tools to provide it. By Rich Freeman

COULD THERE BE A BETTER PLACE
 to be in IT right now than the intersection of managed services and security?

Indeed, while sales of security hardware, software, and services will climb at a 9.4% compound annual growth rate through 2023 to $151.2 billion, according to IDC, sales of managed security services will grow at an even better 13.9% CAGR during that same period from a base of $21 billion last year. The margins on managed security, which can easily top 65%, are pretty good too.

Providing Confidence

Most providers sell managed security plans separately from their core managed IT service bundles. Many let customers choose from a menu of basic, intermediate, and advanced tiers.

Included in those options, typically, is a mix of behavior-based endpoint protection software, next-generation firewalls, spam and DNS filtering solutions, email and network security protection, an endpoint detection and response system, two-factor authentication, BDR, and a dark web monitoring service that alerts you when a client’s credentials have been stolen. Vulnerability assessments that identify gaps in a customer’s defenses, security awareness training that teaches end users to recognize phishing scams, and cyber-insurance policies that lessen the financial impact of successful attacks usually factor into the package as well.
