What is a Managed Service Provider

A managed services provider, or “MSP,”.  Is a third-party contractor that delivers network-based services, applications, and equipment management services to businesses and enterprises of all sizes. The MSP is the one who is responsible for monitoring and managing the problems of your I.T. infrastructure. Utilizing an MSP to manage and automate functions on behalf of its clients.  That may be overlooked by internal staff. These services often include virus updates, as well as security software updates, systems patches, backups, monitoring, auditing, and overall increased control.

What are the benefits of IT-managed services?

Often MSPs act as an extension of your own staff, taking care of routine IT infrastructure like monitoring and management of your network around the clock, which frees up your staff to focus on more important business-critical projects. MSPs proactively monitor and maintain your systems in order to help you avoid problems and downtime and drive productivity and uptime while lowering costs.
MSPs have become an attractive option for many organizations regardless of your company’s size and should be an integral part of your overall business strategy, involving senior executives and key staff.

Outsourcing IT services is NOT like other outsourced services you maintain full control.
You decide what your staff can handle and what you want to outsource to your provider.

While adding other services and features that are often overlooked by internal staff.
