Why Your Business Needs Managed IT Services

Imagineering IT Logo

Maybe you, like many businesses, are trying your best to keep up with technology and stay ahead of cyberthreats on your own. However, with the lack of time and resources, this can become a heavy load.

It may be time to look into the ways your business could benefit from Managed IT Services.  

What Are Managed IT Services

Managed Services is the practice of a business outsourcing their IT operations to a Managed Services Provider (MSP). The MSP assumes ongoing responsibility for monitoring, managing, and resolving issues for the computers, network, and IT systems of the business. 

Managed IT Services provide a proactive approach to business IT needs. Small to medium business owners can pay for the services they need when they need them. With the use of 24/7 monitoring, it’s possible to fix problems before they happen. Instead of waiting for a problem to arise, areas that are vulnerable are identified and fixed before a larger problem occurs or business is interrupted. 

Signs Managed IT Services are Right for You

How do you know if your business will benefit from Managed IT Services? The following signs might be a clue that it’s time to look into an MSP: 

Little To No IT Support

A one-person IT staff, or a staff member with a different job assuming IT responsibilities, may not have the knowledge and ability to handle certain tasks. This can leave your business open to security threats if ongoing updates and security patches are not addressed in a timely manner.

Outdated Hardware

If you are working with an older server or workstation that is not properly maintained, the outdated equipment can leave you vulnerable to data theft or loss due to failing drives or unpatched security holes, costing you thousands of dollars to fix.

Slow Performance

When the “Updates Available” pop-up appears in the corner of your computer screen, do you install the updates right away, or do you push it off until the next day? Ignoring these software updates for months at a time leaves you open to cyber-attacks and can slow productivity.

Manually Updated Patches

Patch management will ensure your software and systems are fully functional and secure. With Managed IT Services, your operating system would be quickly patched up behind the scenes to secure your business from threats.

What to Expect from a Managed IT Service Provider

No matter which services are deemed necessary for your company — i.e. remote monitoring, data backup and recovery, hosted solutions, security, or new workstations — solutions will be tailored to the needs and mission of your specific business. 

At Imagineering, we understand that each business is unique and has different IT needs.
