When Should I Consider a Managed Service Provider?

When Should I Consider a Managed Service Provider?

Technology plays a critical role in the workplace, but finding talented IT workers isn't easy for any businesses. Choosing a managed service provider (MSP) is often a better alternative that offers a wide range of benefits. MSPs with teams of IT professionals are always available to provide around-the-clock support, and you won't have to worry about the costs of hiring and training new employees.

Here are a few more reasons why an MSP is a great choice to be part of your team.

Broader Technical Expertise

Finding an IT worker with experience in a variety of technologies is often a challenge. On the other hand, partnering with an MSP is a great way to gain access to extensive experience in many technology areas. Cloud solutions, disaster recovery, virtualization, WAN infrastructure, network management, and server monitoring are just a few of the many ways an IT service provider can help your company fully take advantage of the latest technology.

Cybersecurity Protections and Network Management Tools Included

By hiring an MSP, all of the tools necessary to protect and manage all of the computers are most often included with the offering. Monitoring tools, anti-virus, email security, next gen firewalls and backup and disaster recovery can be set up for your organization within hours of onboarding your network.

Perfect for Numerous Industries

Another reason to consider using an MSP is that it's a great option for a wide range of industries. Working with an MSP will help you comply with regulations impacting your industry while giving you the latest tech to better meet the needs of your customers. Industries that can benefit from managed IT services include health care, education, manufacturing, construction, financial services, legal, advertising, and logistics.

Cyber threats can cost a lot of money and ruin the reputation of any business. Data breaches, phishing scams, and ransomware attacks are just a few of the many examples of cyber-attacks. An MSP can play an active role in keeping your business safe against these threats through around-the-clock monitoring services, and an IT technician is only a phone call away if you ever need assistance.
