Traditional Managed Service Provider Models
To begin, let’s start by diving into the basics of traditional Managed Service Providers (MSP’s). With traditional MSP’s, capabilities such as Access Management, Security Management, Continuity Management, and Patch Management are offered using a basic vendor model, with businesses fully relying on the MSP to make all fixes and actions. The focus of the traditional MSP is on limiting the changes to the environment. You could think of Traditional MSP as a “cookie-cutter” approach, with limited flexibility, and a lot of reliability on your MSP vendor. Being fully reliant on a vendor has its drawbacks, and in the evolving technology arena, businesses are looking for increased agility with their systems, that aren’t always easily attainable when utilizing a Traditional MSP.
