Threat Watch: NotPetya ransomware

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jun 27, 2017 4:19:51 PM

Update: As researchers learn more about the malware that quickly spread around the world earlier this week, it has become clear the malware wasn't what it first appeared to be. According to Forbes, multiple security researchers have uncovered flaws in the code that indicate the ransomare now known as NotPetya was designed to cause destruction, not make money. Infected computers become unrecoverable due to the faulty encrpytion, and BleepingComputer reports that victims have stopped paying the ransom. Because Ukraine was a primary target in the attack, a popular theory now suggests that the attack could have been politically motivated



Have you and your customers started to rest easy now that it's been a month since the WannaCry ransomware attack hit more than 100 countries around the globe? Well, a new strain of Petya ransomware wants to change that.

And, let's hope you and your customers all learned your lesson and got around to patching the EternalBlue vulnerability because this new strain is picking up where WannaCry left off.

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jun 6, 2017 3:39:48 PM

Efficiency is a key part of running a successful MSP, and managing routine backup and security services that customers need to keep their data safe can consume valuable technician time that MSPs could spend on more strategic activities.

MSP profitability: The real reason you aren’t getting results you want

Posted by Anne Campbell on Apr 26, 2017 11:25:00 AM

For MSPs, it can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking success is just around the corner for your business. You convince yourself that you just need to find a little more time to work on improving your business or hiring the right sales person or tackling any of the items on your to-do list that you keep putting off because you’re too busy putting out fires for your customers.

In our new e-book, The MSP Profitability Playbook: Your Guide to Generating More Revenue and Making Your Business More Successful, Gary Pica of TruMethods calls this phenomenon the “around the corner” mentality. He explains that many of the MSPs he’s met over the years suffer from it.

Webinar: Find success by transitioning to managed services

Posted by Anne Campbell on Apr 12, 2017 9:30:00 AM

It’s a good time to be an MSP. Markets and Markets predicts the global managed services market will grow to $242 billion by 2021 at a compound annual growth rate of 10.8 percent. MSPs have high expectations for the impact this growth will have on their businesses.

According to CompTIA’s 5th Annual Trends in Managed Services report, half of the service providers surveyed predict that the managed services portion of their business will undergo high growth over the next two years and make up 75 percent or more of their total annual revenue. Another 45 percent of respondents expect to see managed services increase and account for at least half of their total revenue in the same time period.
