MSPs Need to Offer Microsoft Cloud Assessments

Most organizations with Microsoft 365 operate in hybrid environments with a combination of cloud and on-premises applications. While MSPs are generally on solid ground when it comes to the on-premises component, many need more visibility into, and control over, the virtual component.  

MSPs can scope new business more accurately when they have visibility into a prospect’s Microsoft Cloud environment. They can control the privacy and security of data for existing clients with a regular review of their Microsoft Cloud environment.  

The right Microsoft Cloud Assessment solution: 

  • Allows you to see what’s inside the key components of the Microsoft cloud infrastructure.  
  • Targets specific Microsoft 365 services that need “clean up” and better controls.  
  • Goes beyond Microsoft Control and Secure Score to identify risks based on IT best practices.  
  • Includes comparative security benchmarks (measured against similar-sized organizations) to help evaluate security posture. 
  • Saves technicians countless hours by automatically gathering all information about the Azure, Azure AD and Microsoft 365 environments, as opposed to manually drilling up and down to gather information. 
  • Allows you to create a New Cloud Security offering — like Security-as-a-Service using security reports.  
  • Shows improved cloud platform health over time.  
  • Enables you to sell faster — by enabling you to show your prospects why they need your services. 
  • Empowers you to differentiate yourself from the competition.
