Managed IT services, or as popularly known as outsourced IT, is hiring an outside company, called a managed service provider (MSP), to handle your IT needs. MSPs can cover everything from the security of networks and the implementation of operating systems to the installation of software and the backup of files.
In this article, we will be sharing with you the four most commonly outsourced solutions by businesses:
- Network Security
One of the most significant benefits of outsourced IT services is the security protections. This refers to various countermeasures put in place to protect your network and the data stored on or passing through it. This solution aims to keep your network safe from cyberattacks, hacking attempts, and employee negligence, because in the worlds of computing and e-commerce, nothing can be more damaging than a breach to your system’s security.
- Network Implementation and Maintenance
At its core, network maintenance constitutes all the tasks and systems in place to monitor, update and run your organization’s computer network before problems strike. This can be time-consuming for most SMBs as it involves implementation and updating of system programs and making sure that devices connect together in order to share information with one another. By working with an MSP, they make sure that your network is up and running and prevent failures
- Troubleshooting Support
The goal of technical support is to provide help and walk your staff through the trouble at hand. With the usual issues such as confusion over a system update or problems with network synchronization, your team will have access to support from IT experts who know how to solve each and every computing issue that could arise.
- System and File Backup
This solution is a hybrid cloud-based backup and recovery platform that aims to provide secure local and online storage backup services for files, folders, applications, entire systems, and virtual machines. Most companies today have moved onto cloud storage for guaranteed backup regardless of local hard drive or server failure. Due to the convenience of cloud storage, many SMBs are now following suit. With everything backed up on a cloud, all of your digital files will exist for as long as you need them and restoration of data can be for a single file or an entire system.
Having a secured and healthy IT ecosystem relies on proactive, daily activities and strategic foresight rather than reactive adjustments or ad-hoc, spur-of-the-moment patches.
