Managed services is the practice of outsourcing the responsibility for maintaining, and anticipating need for, a range of processes and functions in order to improve operations and cut expenses. It is an alternative to the break/fix or on-demand outsourcing model where the service provider performs on-demand services and bills the customer only for the work done.
Chris Loehr — executive vice president of Solis Security, an incident response firm — has personally dealt with many of these MSP breaches. Speaking of GandCrab, Loehr says, "They certainly hit some MSPs in 2018, but the ransoms were relatively small: $10,000 to $25,000. In 2019, MSPs became more of a target, with increasing ransom demands and the threat actors leveraging MSP tools with greater efficiency to affect clients. GandCrab never required the MSP to pay up. It wasn't until GandCrab evolved into Sodinokibi in mid-2019 threat actors began to say: 'We ONLY want the MSP to pay. You can pay for ALL the customers or you get NOTHING at all.'"

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.
