Managed service providers tend to be Web hosting or application service providers that allow users to outsource their network and application resource procedures under a delivery agreement. In most cases, MSPs own the entire physical back-end infrastructure and provide resources to end users remotely over the Internet on a self-service, on-demand basis.
The first books on the topic of managed services: Service Agreements for SMB Consultants: A Quick-Start Guide to Managed Services[18] and The Guide to a Successful Managed Services Practice[19] were published in 2006 by Palachuk and Simpson, respectively. Since then, the managed services business model has gained ground among enterprise-level companies. As the value-added reseller (VAR) community evolved to a higher level of services, it adapted the managed service model and tailored it to SMB companies.

Indeed! Cybersecurity is not a commodity among service providers. One is not necessarily like unto another. Some MSPs have robust and mature cybersecurity controls while others are lackluster. It is imperitive that the client ask questions to their MSP to better understand their capabilities. Because, as you said -- they inherit the security of their service providers. 
Typically when partnering with a MSP, that organization will offer you a roadmap; this might be a one, three, or five year plan depending on your needs. This roadmap will have certain IT issues that may come up over time written into it, whether they be small issues or larger ones. That way there are no surprise expenses. With an individual IT employee, this luxury isn’t there. For instance you may at some point need to replace an entire server, which is a huge expense for your company. With a MSP, your roadmap will have a solution for this built into it. This is going to eliminate a lot of stress, headaches, and budget stretching on your part. All while saving you from the downtime that prevents you from running your business effectively, efficiently, and productively.

However, as time progressed computer manufacturing grew to large scale, leaving the small IT dealer to focus less on manufacturing and more on break/fix. This system was time consuming, labor intensive, costly and reactive. It did not allow the technician room to grow their business or take on new clients without massive investments in labor and infrastructure.
