TORONTO, ON – August 4, 2020 – / — Asigra Inc., a leader in backup and recovery software that delivers comprehensive repository cyber protection, today highlighted findings from a 2020 report1 by the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) titled 2020 Managed Services Landscape. The report reveals service provider preferences toward subscription IT consumption models, including cloud-based data protection.

In the report, a sample of 375 MSPs were surveyed on several subjects related to the subject of cloud managed services, including average length of cloud managed services contracts, sales cycle length, renewal rates, follow-on business tied to renewals, profit margins and more. Below is a brief summary of results from the report.

  • Average length of an MSP’s cloud-based managed services contract: 1 year, 32%; 2 years, 20%; 3 years, 24%
  • Cloud managed services sales cycle lengths: Less than 2 weeks, 8%; 2-4 weeks, 31%; 5-8 weeks, 32%
  • Higher renewal rate for public cloud managed services compared to other managed services: Smaller MSPs, 14%; Larger MSPs, 45%
  • Follow-on and/or expansion business from cloud-based managed services: Smaller MSPs, 34%; Larger MSPs, 46%

Subscription-based data protection falls within the category of cloud-based managed services. As one of the industry’s leading providers of secure backup software, Asigra offers a low-touch, cybersecurity-enabled cloud-based data recovery software, backed by a large installed base of public, private, and hybrid cloud backup deployments worldwide. Designed for MSPs, Asigra’s cybersecurity-enabled platform optimizes the backup process using a hybrid cloud approach to protect end-customer data. The company’s software is flexible enough to fit into any environment, simple to install and manage, but most importantly, prevents bad actors from infecting and deleting backups.
