What Are Managed IT Services?

Every single day, your company is at risk for various cyber threats, viruses, malware and phishing scams are only a few of the potential dangers; you also risk data loss if an unexpected disaster occurs. All of this can be tough to handle, so prevention is the best solution. Using managed IT services, your data is protected 24/7. Managed IT encompasses a broad range of services, from business continuity to cloud services, and choosing the right options can help you keep your company’s IT infrastructure safe and efficient. Below, our experts at the Southshore Managed IT Group explain our managed IT services and their benefits. 

Understanding Managed IT Services

Managed IT services include a variety of remote IT operations that are carried out by our team. Instead of spending resources on training and supervising an in-house team, outsourcing your needs ensures that your data is expertly managed at all hours of the day. You’ll reduce in-house overhead and focus on running your business while we work behind the scenes. We are also specially trained in IT duties and therefore offer specialty knowledge that you may not otherwise have access to. 

For a subscription fee, we’ll complete several key operations for you. Our most common responsibilities include: 

  • Hardware and infrastructure management
  • Cybersecurity services, including safety testing, monitoring and incident response
  • Cloud service administration and configuration
  • Communications support
  • Managed print services
  • IT infrastructure assessment and optimization

This list is not exhaustive, nor is it necessarily the services your business will need. We approach each client differently and learn about your goals at a consultation. Your strategy is customized to your company’s unique needs for maximum efficacy. 

What Are the Benefits of Managed IT Services?

Organizations can enjoy plenty of benefits when they choose the best managed IT services provider. Some of the advantages include: 

  • Contractual Terms. Instead of hiring and training your own staff, managed services allow you to establish terms for any tasks that involve service level agreements. In other words, you’ll pay only for the services that your company needs, rather than the significant costs of maintaining full-time workers. 
  • Efficiency. Outsourcing your IT management means you can devote more time to tasks that generate revenue. Our team offers dependable guidance and recommendations so you can increase your infrastructure’s performance. As a result, you’ll have increased ROI. 
  • Better Uptime Management. Our team isn’t limited to your company’s work schedule, meaning we perform routine maintenance and system updates even when your office is closed. As a result, your servers are constantly up-to-date and secure. You’ll have fewer disruptions to your workflow and increased uptime.
