Cloud MSPs bring a lot to the table, but many businesses don’t fully understand what Cloud Managed Services Providers (MSPs) do or how they can enhance existing IT infrastructures. Functioning as IT service teams, Cloud MSPs manage the IT infrastructure for organizations of all sizes. They can manage your entire infrastructure, or provide a hybrid solution in which they manage only select aspects of your systems. Additionally, many Cloud MSPs utilize a customized subscription payment plan, allowing you to pay for only what you need — when you need it.
Maintaining Your Business’ Data Is Expensive
IT staff hired to innovate systems and manage data, whether it be on-premises or in the Cloud, can lead to high operating costs. In order to achieve your SLAs, IT administrators may need to work around the clock, day in and day out and may even ask for extra staff to handle the high workload. They might be spending most of their time trying to solve a significant underlying problem (e.g., lack of service level agreements) or trying to implement a new system, but more likely, they’re spending a lot of their time dealing with routine maintenance and support tasks, such as installing patches, upgrading applications, and backing up data instead of tackling the bigger-picture solutions your business needs. This is a problem that could be costing you thousands in IT operating expenses.
Working with a Trusted MSP Has Many Benefits
Reduce costs, free up personnel, and enable growth: Cloud MSPs have many different pricing models. You can pay per-user, per-device, or have a set monthly fee for all services provided. Additionally, they are available 24/7/365 to address IT needs, protecting you from unexpected events and unnecessary downtime associated with IT challenges. They free up your internal resources to work on other projects and protect you from challenges associated with IT personnel leaving your organization.
Identify security risks while meeting current regulatory requirements: Cloud MSPs attract the best IT personnel to identify and address security risks while working with you to create a robust security policy. Security risks come in many forms, including human error, equipment failure, data loss, and hacking. A trusted IT partner is your best chance of protection from the many threats that exist today while ensuring that your organization is compliant with current regulatory requirements.
Enable quick and efficient upgrades to meet current business needs: As your business grows, so do your IT needs. Utilizing the latest software solutions or purchasing new hardware to support your business growth can be cost-prohibitive. Cloud MSPs work with many different businesses, all of which have unique needs and business requirements. As such, Cloud MSPs utilize the latest software and have large databases to provide you with affordable access to expanded services.
