Generating monthly recurring revenue (MRR) is highly beneficial for IT providers. MRR makes budgeting more predictable and allows you to better plan for growth. That’s why many successful IT providers offer subscription-based services in addition to—or in place of—project-based “break-fix” support.
Data protection is a natural fit for a subscription service, since it is a repeating task that requires ongoing management. That’s because as businesses create and alter data, it must be protected over time. So, whether you are looking to start generating MRR or you are building out your service portfolio, offering data protection services can be a profitable option.
Endpoint backup can and should be one piece of your data protection services. Today’s workforce is highly mobile and business data is often widely distributed. So, protecting endpoint data from accidental deletion, theft, and malware is more important to businesses than ever. That’s why endpoint backup represents a significant opportunity to generate MRR.
