Running your own business is challenging enough. Each day seems to present a new set of obstacles for you and your staff to overcome. Sometimes, the problems stem from your IT infrastructure, putting a halt to your business continuity and possibly resulting in costly downtime and irreparable damage to your reputation. We know the challenges you face.
You need to be growing your business, not worrying about whether your cybersecurity can stave off a breach. You also don’t need to be concerned with if your data backup and recovery plan will keep your most important data secure in the event of a disaster.
When it’s a weather disaster like a hurricane and flooding, your business stands to suffer power outages and downtime — and brand damage. When you’re hit with a cyberattack and a potential irrevocable loss of data, it could mean devastation. Six in 10 small businesses end up having to close their doors within six months of a cyberattack.
Unfortunately, you may not have the in-house manpower or resources to devote to the maintenance and monitoring of your IT network to maintain continuity, which could negatively impact how smooth your business can run and recover. That’s your cue — it’s a perfect opportunity to seek worry-free IT services.
By outsourcing your IT to an MSP, you’ll have access to a suite of IT services for an affordable rate. Your MSP can deliver 24/7 support from a team of technical experts who are versed in the unique needs of your business. The right MSP won’t just fix something that’s broken — rather, they’ll proactively monitor your IT to snuff out a problem before it starts.
There are many reasons why partnering with an MSP can do wonders for your business continuity. Here are some:
- Strong, compliant cybersecurity
Forget about data breaches and cyberattacks bringing your operations to a halt. An MSP will stay on top of all your updates and provide you with the most innovative security, protecting you from the savviest of cybercriminals.
- Data backup and recovery
Preventing a disaster can sometimes prove impossible, but recovering from it doesn’t have to be. An MSP will work with you on a backup and recovery plan to ensure your business continuity in the event of a breach, power outage or natural disaster. They’ll also work with you on which data is most valuable to your business and the best ways to protect it.
- Cloud services
Your MSP will offer you a host of scalable, customizable solutions that will help your business streamline operations and your employees securely work remotely from anywhere. You’ll also have access to more storage and secure email hosting.
- IT consulting
Instead of just supplying you with IT support, an MSP will also work alongside you on an array of projects, including helping you rebuild and overhaul your entire infrastructure.
- 24/7 support
A good MSP will provide you with technical support all day, every day, including holidays and weekends, to ensure you can continue operations even in the most dire of circumstances.
