Under this subscription model, the client or customer is the entity that owns or has direct oversight of the organization or system being managed whereas the Managed Services Provider (MSP) is the service provider delivering the managed services. The client and the MSP are bound by a contractual, service-level agreement that states the performance and quality metrics of their relationship.[5]

Managed IT services heralded a proactive approach to IT, attempting to conduct maintenance, upgrades, system monitoring and issue resolution on a routine basis, with the goal of preventing problems before they started. Automation, increased Internet capabilities and cloud computing allowed for monitoring and issue resolution to be provided remotely, enabling more efficient processes and a consolidation of resources.
Managed services is the practice of outsourcing the responsibility for maintaining, and anticipating need for, a range of processes and functions in order to improve operations and cut expenses.[1][2] It is an alternative to the break/fix or on-demand outsourcing model where the service provider performs on-demand services and bills the customer only for the work done.[3][4]

Offloading Tasks: Part of the appeal of an IT services firm or MSP is offloading rote tasks and time-consuming processes. This helps an organization step away from tactical tasks — a.k.a. “keeping the lights on” — to more strategic endeavors. As a result, it’s important to ask vendors how they can help your enterprise become more strategic — and understand how they plan to make this happen.

Morgan explains that help for all SMBs is on the way. "The CyberCall has been a tremendous catalyst for the entire industry.

This is a great primer on MSPs, and your insight on the MSPs struggle to stay relevant in a world where the adoption of X-as-a-Service is mainstream. End customers are led to a false sense of security, often believing the protection of data and configurations are minded by the XaaS provider. That's where we see the greatest potential for MSPs to grow into - efficiently servicing the Services and devices that traditional RMMs currently don't have visibility into. The opportunity to manage a customer holistically is huge if MSPs achieve the right automation.

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. 
Today more companies are opting for a managed service model instead of outsourcing specific IT activities. This reduces their risk of technology disruption and helps the organization be ready for new opportunities. Managed IT service company delivers cost-effective solutions for managed IT cloud colocation, disaster recovery and ITconsulting services.
Since IT products and services are the bread and butter of managed IT service providers, you can count on them to suggest you the best options in line with your business requirements and budget. Dedicated managed IT service providers are engaged in providing necessary consultancy services which are essential to understand the working and benefits of new managed IT services and operations.
Remote IT service providers can save you on IT costs such as licensing, training, as well as emergency repairs, which all add up in the short and long term. In essence, when you hire an MSP, you know that they have already made the investments in IT infrastructure, meaning that they assume all of the risks, so you don’t have to. This allows your in-house IT team costs to be more predictable. 
Thank you for shining a light on this systemic vulnerability. I don't think organizations realize that, in many ways, they inherit the security of their service providers. As another commenter noted, the RMM is overdue for radical reinvention. Security-minded MSPs may need to think about delegated access to customer environments, privileged access workstations, or other methods for remotely administering customer environments without that big fat one-to-many target that RMM represents. I think the MSP tooling ecosystem is general is problematic - MSPs design for scale and efficiency (making them an economical option for customers as opposed to hiring internally), but do I really want my password manager integrated into my RMM? Maybe not... There's a lot of market share out there waiting for MSPs that can develop real cybersecurity maturity.

The evolution of MSP started in the 1990s with the emergence of application service providers (ASPs) who helped pave the way for remote support for IT infrastructure. From the initial focus of remote monitoring and management of servers and networks, the scope of an MSP's services expanded to include mobile device management, managed security, remote firewall administration and security-as-a-service, and managed print services. Around 2005, Karl W. Palachuk, Amy Luby (Founder of Managed Service Provider Services Network acquired by High Street Technology Ventures), and Erick Simpson (Managed Services Provider University) were the first advocates and the pioneers of the managed services business model.[16][17]
Again, this is great for the budget conscious business owners. The upfront cost of having to purchase all of the tools needed for these services would be a huge blow to your budget. Having a MSP that you can rent (or lease) the necessary equipment and tools saves you that money. All while being able to hand off the responsibilities to an expert organization, keeping your time open to handle your normal day to day duties.

Computer Services Unlimited also worked on developing and maintaining the organization's web app. The client praised Computer Services Unlimited's communication skills, noting the company's promptness to not only respond to inquiries but resolve any issues or changes to the project.
Managed IT services allow businesses to delegate their IT operations to an expert third-party organization that specializes in handling these responsibilities. These third-party organizations, known as Managed Service Providers (MSPs), are responsible for the entirety or portions of a business’ IT systems, as agreed upon in a Service Level Agreement (SLA). IT equipment is typically procured by the client, and depending on the SLA, Managed Service Providers may provide round-the-clock monitoring, issue resolution and reporting, and more.
