How MSPs help Reduce Downtime
There is no question that a business's data is crucial to its success. These days everything is stored online, and everyone knows that securing that data has never been more important. It can be impossible to do any business without access to data when you need it. Having IT support to protect and manage that data during an attack is how MSPs help reduce downtime.
You are a business owner who cares about growing their clientele. Your focus is on learning the market, and thinking of new ways to increase sales. New trends emerge and you spend your days thinking of ways to work these trends into your current business model.
At the same time there are cyber criminals who spend their days trying to make money off businesses like yours. They keep up with the trends of technology, and that includes watching news about weaknesses and how to exploit them. As a business owner who has to consider the complex mechanisms that go on in the market, how can you expect to stay just as up to date on an entirely different, yet equally complicated industry?
The answer is that it’s almost impossible. If an attack happens not only are you unable to protect yourself, but you could find yourself in a situation that takes weeks to fix.
MSPs as the Industry Insiders
A good MSP will have a team of people who keep up with the same trends that cyber criminals do. They should be able to see how attackers evolve and create ways to protect you against them. This is what they mean by data management and IT security, and this is how you reduce downtime.
One IT person may not have the all the tools, and all the knowledge to escape collapse during an attack. MSPs come with a team of professionals that can split resources, work together, and help you get out of sticky situations faster.
MSPs are not trying to take jobs away from your IT person. Instead they are there to lend you IT support. This means that they are there to help with specific problems that may go beyond what your IT department can solve on their own. It’s an extra layer of resources and protection that will only make your IT security stronger.
Data management is an ongoing process. There is no way to install a program and have your system be magically safe forever. That is just not the way that managed IT works. However, there are tools that can automate functions to help take down harmful programs faster. Faster response time, greater resources, and more manpower all come with hiring an MSP
