Regardless of the size, vertical, or location of your SMB clients, the rules of business are the same: in order to grow, you must produce. Unfortunately, SMBs and MSPs alike are up against a slew of factors that threaten productivity. The convergence of targeted ransomware attacks, human error, and remote endpoints, coupled with our dependence on data enablement tools like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, has changed the cybersecurity landscape. While these tools are essential, they’re not equipped with the business continuity protections required for sustained business availability.
Axcient’s Productivity Suite Bundle gives MSPs three action-based resources for educating clients, securing productivity tools, and understanding the value of these services in your stack. With these three components covered, MSPs can confidently promise business continuity for both client and MSP growth.
The One, Two, Three Resource Combo for Securing Productivity in Just One Bundle
Data protection limits in productivity tools are easy for MSPs to see, but when clients hear big names like Microsoft and Google, it’s easy to think, “they have my back.” The MSPs’ role is to educate clients about those restrictions and provide business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions to overcome them. Axcient’s Productivity Suite Bundle gives you the interactive tools, statistics, and information necessary to protect the tools your clients are already using and leverage those services for business wins.
“Ninety-two percent of MSPs are aware that Microsoft does not guarantee against data loss. Yet over half of the MSPs surveyed only had 10% of clients utilizing a Microsoft 365 backup solution.”
– AXCIENT CHANNEL COVERAGE: STATE OF MICROSOFT 365 BACKUP
Confronting the reality of the risks we’re up against is necessary for combating them, preparing for them, and most importantly, overcoming them. Microsoft and Google have hours-long outages. Humans often accidentally delete and misplace data that other teammates rely on. And cyberattacks result in data loss that can be devastating for businesses. Bottom line – if you’re not backing up Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, you’re not delivering business continuity. The Productivity Suite Bundle gets to the brass tacks of business continuity, how to ensure it, and why it’s important. What’s included:
- eBook | MSPs Must Plan to Backup, Search, Restore, and Audit Productivity Suite Data: Get four key features for uninterrupted business continuity through rock-solid recovery of Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace data.
- An MSP Guide to Calculating Downtime with Your Clients: Calculate the impact of an hour of downtime on your clients’ businesses to illustrate the consequences of forgoing BCDR on productivity tools.
- Report | Axcient Channel Coverage: State of Microsoft 365 Backup. Leverage Microsoft 365 backup as part of your layered security approach with MSP survey responses describing client usage and margin growth.
Here’s a deeper look at the three resources included in the Productivity Suite Bundle…
#1: eBook | MSPs Must Plan to Backup, Search, Restore, and Audit Productivity Suite Data
This eBook highlights the four features necessary for ongoing business continuity and rapid and reliable recovery no matter what. Armed with an understanding of Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace limitations and recommendations for third-party services, you can design your business continuity plan with the appropriate safeguards. Establish, update, or upgrade your business continuity plan with a comprehensive and pragmatic assessment of your capabilities. Then, integrate the four features outlined to get competitive answers to the following questions:
- How long does it take to locate lost data and restore it for client access in Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace?
- What is the cost to clients for data storage, including overages and over-provisioning? How do those fees impact your relationship with clients?
- Are you able to meet long-term compliance requirements? If so, what does the management and technical time cost? If not, have you lost clients because of it?
- How do you recover if a client is hit by ransomware or accidental data deletion, and how confident are you in your ability?

#2: An MSP Guide to Calculating Downtime with Your Clients
The concept of downtime can feel ambiguous to clients who haven’t suffered the consequences. They may still think, “it won’t happen to me,” or believe that Microsoft and Google will have their back in the event of a breach. Budget-conscious SMBs may try to avoid BCDR protections for their productivity tools, but as their MSP, it’s your job to ensure business continuity.
In this actionable guide, Axcient teaches you how to calculate the cost of downtime with clients to help them understand the value of BCDR for business survival. MSPs can nominalize the cost of foregoing important data protection using hard costs, including operational and overhead expenses, number of employees, average salary, and monthly revenue. Hit with a personalized calculation of their risk, clients better comprehend the criticality of the services you provide.
The guide comes complete with a breakdown of how to calculate client downtime by hand, as well as an easy-to-use, plug-and-play online tool.

“It’s a win-win for everybody. The customer is protected and we can restore their data. We’re doing a good job of fixing problems they didn’t necessarily know they had, and we’re getting revenue from it, with not a lot of work.”
