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.

This technician may also have been the person who built and/or installed the computer system, due to the proliferation of small IT shops that specialized in this small-scale client services at the time.

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.

What’s included in these services depends on you and your business. It’s more like a customized service to fit your needs. You may have certain IT needs already spoken for by an in-house employee, but need the larger issues to be taken care of by a MSP. Alternatively, you may have no options in-house for your IT responsibilities, in which case they can take over everything for you. It’s the peace of mind that MSPs provide that is so valuable to a business owner.
In House—the process where an organization hires its own IT service providers and pays their salary, benefits, and further training, as well as the infrastructure they oversee. This is typically an extremely costly endeavor, and often businesses that try to procure in-house IT lack the capabilities to fully service their system as well as an inability to grow.
