Managed IT: It's Not Just For Large Corporations
In addition to predictable cost and scalability, Managed IT Services ensures your business remains safe around the clock.
Cybersecurity & Compliance
Cyber-crimes against small and medium-sized businesses are climbing. Up to two-thirds of attacks are targeted at small businesses and there’s a good reason. Most small and medium-sized businesses don’t take the necessary measures to protect their company, believing they have nothing worth stealing or that they are too small for a hacker to target. Nothing is further from the truth. A Managed IT Service Provider knows exactly how to protect your business and introduce the best practices that will keep your business safe, all within a budget that works for your bottom line. Of course, with the increase of cybercrime comes the increased regulation to help prevent it. Every state in the nation adopted cybersecurity regulations that businesses must comply with.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are the most widely applicable standards businesses must meet. The consequences for violating these and other standards are hefty fines and reputation damage that some businesses might not have ability to overcome.
A Managed IT Service provider can help guide your business through complex compliance regulations, so you don’t have to worry about violating data security regulations, including producing the necessary proof that your organization is meeting all requirements for your state.
24/7/365 Support Managed IT Service providers use monitoring technology to always keep an eye on your systems. These real- time alerts allow issues to get addressed before they become business problems. Without this constant monitoring, the risk of a failed component or service during off hours increases; when something goes down in the middle of the night, it only gets worse at the hours build before it’s addressed.
Monitoring allows an MSP to take instant corrective action, even during off-hours, once an alert is signaled and, perhaps more importantly to a business owner, communicate to you the problem, the impact, the possible work-around and estimated time to recovery.
