August 2022

Securing and maintaining business data, assets and applications is a complicated job that requires years of training and a very specific skill set. This becomes even more complicated if you want to migrate the above items to the cloud. When you add in cybersecurity, to help protect your IT infrastructure and assets, the job becomes much too complex for one or two people to manage. This is where partnering with a managed IT service provider can help you.

A managed IT service provider is a team of skilled professionals that are trained, have proper and maintained certifications, have thousands of hours of IT experience, and possess intimate knowledge of today’s best data practices, IT applications, network infrastructure maintenance and cybersecurity measures. These professionals are constantly learning about new applications and can source top quality equipment or qualified talent in a tight labour market.

The increased demand for managed IT isn’t simply about managing workloads or saving money. It is about ensuring that your business is properly protected and ready to be a part of the ever-evolving business environment. There is nothing worse than having a ransomware attack happen to your business during its busy season.

Below are some benefits and advantages to partnering with a managed IT service provider.

·         Fast Response Times gives you 24/7 access to a team of trained and certified professionals. You’ll have a team to monitor, maintain, manage, and report on your IT assets around the clock. It’s worth mentioning that this team can also scale up or down as required. If you want to open a new office or hire more people, your IT partner should be able to easily add support for those extra users and systems.

·         Proactive Network Monitoring and Issue Fixing prevents unplanned downtime that cost your business money and productivity. Your managed IT service provider ensures you have qualified professionals with proper training and certification to upgrade, manage, monitor, and secure your network and IT infrastructure, providing maximum network uptime and performance for your business.

·         Cybersecurity also known as computer security or information technology security is more and more critical for businesses. Your managed IT service provider can help protect your business from today’s cyber threats by implementing cybersecurity best practices such as operating system updates, deploying a password manager or a virtual private network (VPN). They can continually monitor and protect email, applications, endpoints, servers, networking devices, wireless networks, mobile devices, access control and data storage. Did you know that, according to research by IBM, it takes 280 days to find and contain the average cyberattack, while the average attack costs $3.86 million?
