Technology evolves at lightning speed these days. Keeping your IT current, efficient and secure can be challenging. Out-of-date software, security and operating systems can lead to crashes, outages, frustrated staff or a cyberattack. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 60% of small businesses never recover after an attack.
The good news? A Managed IT solution can help you keep your network and devices up-to-date with the latest advancements in cybersecurity, support and technology.
Here are four key reasons why you should consider a Managed IT solution for your business.
1. You Don’t Have, or Can’t Afford, a Full-Time IT Staff
If you can’t afford full-time IT staff, consider outsourcing to a Managed IT Services provider. They can assist with everything from future IT planning and strategy, firewall services, server and desktop support, including security and business continuity solutions.
2. IT Problems Keep Your Team from Core Business Initiatives
IT emergencies can occupy your team’s time and keep them from performing critical business tasks. With a Managed IT solution you’re outsourcing your IT management to a professional team who will manage your servers and workstations, provide business continuity solutions, automate the installation of software patches and updates, and offer ongoing support services. This will free your team’s time to focus on what’s important… growing your business!
3. Your Technology is Outdated
Are you working with machines that are over 10 years old and running different versions of software? Outdated technology can slow down your network and can lack the security features to keep your data protected. A technology assessment from a Managed IT provider can help you to understand where you currently stand, and help you get to where you need to be to grow your business.
4. Is Your Technology Secure?
Today, data security is of critical importance for every business, regardless of size. Cyberattack, malware, ransomware, and viruses have the capability to shut your business down, and if you’re not prepared, cost you a fortune to recover from. A Managed IT Services provider will implement a security strategy to cover your network, and devices to keep your business safe.
