2024 MSP Projections: Navigating AI, Cybersecurity, and Collaborative Growth in the Evolving Landscape

As we approach the year 2024, it’s critical for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to reflect on the successes and challenges of the past year and prepare for the evolving landscape of AI, cybersecurity, and collaborative partnerships. Let’s delve into some key projections for the upcoming year from the perspective of CMIT Charleston.

Projection #1: Integration of AI, Threat Intelligence, and Cyber Hygiene
In the coming year, CMIT Charleston anticipates incorporating AI technology, threat intelligence, and robust cyber hygiene practices into our service offerings. This integration aims to enhance the identification and mitigation of cyber threats efficiently. By combining up-to-date threat intelligence with AI and machine learning, we aim to provide proactive defense measures against increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. Moreover, the adoption of extended detection and response (XDR) and other solutions will become more prevalent as businesses prioritize cyber hygiene and network visibility.

Projection #2: CMIT Charleston Facilitating Secure Adoption of Generative AI and Automation
Automation, including generative AI, is on the rise, offering efficiency gains for businesses. CMIT Charleston recognizes our critical role in enabling clients to securely adopt generative AI and automation technologies. This involves prioritizing knowledge and technical skills around generative AI, focusing on platform security, and educating clients on implementing these transformative capabilities. By doing so, we contribute to the secure integration of automation tools within our clients’ businesses.

Projection #3: Consolidation of Threat Feeds for Effective Cyber Defense
The trend of consolidation, observed in the acquisition of MSPs and the streamlining of security tool vendors, continues. CMIT Charleston emphasizes the consolidation of threat feeds to combat cyber threats effectively. Businesses are advised to diversify their security portfolios while seeking platforms that can consolidate views and analyze threat feed paths. We, at CMIT Charleston, are familiarizing ourselves with this concept, as consolidated threat feeds will be instrumental in providing businesses with the necessary visibility recommended by security agencies.

Projection #4: Growing Demand for CMIT Charleston Among SMEs
The global managed services market is projected to witness substantial growth, reaching $671.14 billion by 2030. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are increasingly relying on CMIT Charleston to manage their infrastructure, with nearly 88 percent either using or planning to use our MSP services. As the market expands, businesses are turning to multiple MSPs to meet their diverse technology needs. CMIT Charleston, by continually enhancing our service offerings, incorporating AI, automation, and cybersecurity, is well-positioned to cater to the growing demands of SMEs.

In summary, CMIT Charleston, by embracing these projections, focusing on AI integration, secure adoption of generative AI, consolidation of threat feeds, and addressing the evolving needs of SMEs, is poised for success in the dynamic landscape of 2024.
