If you already have US public sector clients, you know they march to a different drummer than private sector customers. Patience can be the operative word. As an MSP working with the US government, you need to navigate through a lot of red tape, budgeting constraints, and compliance issues; but the upfront effort can pay off in the long run.
With over 90,000 public sector agencies and more than 20 million public sector endpoints, the potential to grow your revenue is huge. According to the latest estimates, the US public sector, including state, local, education, healthcare, and utilities, spends nearly $200 billion in its IT efforts annually.
As these agencies move to cloud-based computing and the IT staffing shortage continues, there’s a higher demand for qualified MSPs to fill the void.
The Need for Cybersecurity in the US Public Sector
Vulnerabilities are the reason why the cybersecurity market, valued at $156.24 billion in 2020, has been projected to reach a size of $352.25 billion in 2026. Estimated global losses from cybercrimes alone reached nearly $1 trillion in 2020. The attacks involved another surging trend of ransomware attacks.
Events chronicled by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) show that combating cybercrime is essential to maintaining national security, primarily when targeted at the US public sector and critical infrastructure.
There is a need for expert services in data backup, data protection, database security, cloud data backup, and cloud data protection. And, here lies a significant opportunity for your business.
The sales potential for MSP cybersecurity providers is enormous in this market, and you can easily focus your entire efforts on state and local governments. Now all you need is to leverage a cybersecurity solution designed specifically for the US public sector.

Both sessions include a panel discussion with time available for Q&A.
The Need for Public Sector and Private Regulated Industry Cyber Hygiene
Many MSPs find the fastest path to new revenue is by expanding into markets like state, local, federal, educational, and regulated industries. Acronis and Acronis SCS are partnering to enable MSPs to meet these organizations’ cyber hygiene requirements. From supporting remote work environments to certifying compliance and meeting more stringent controls, MSPs will now be able to support these organizations.
Public Sector Speaks: Certifications and Compliance in the Cloud Age
State, local, federal, and other highly regulated industries have far greater requirements for certification and compliance than other organizations. Join this session to learn how MSPs can meet these organizations’ requirements, regulations, and controls and increase the size of market opportunities and revenues.
After the day’s sessions conclude on Monday, October 25th, join us for a networking reception at the Moxy Hotel’s rooftop bar. You’ll be able to meet executives from Acronis SCS and panel members from the earlier sessions. Register here for the reception.
