Managed Service Provider

There is much more to being a managed service provider than just providing remote support. Your managed service provider can remotely monitor PC’s servers, firewalls, exchange servers, AD services, routers or switches from one location. This allows us to be proactive, which can save you enormous amounts of downtime that you probably cannot afford.

A managed service provider can be a hosting company, or IT service provider that offer fully outsourced network management. Most of these services can be performed from outside a company’s internal network, which can expedite support, plus save the customer quite a bit of money. Connecting into a PC is much quicker than getting in the car, and driving to a customers location.

Most managed service providers provide antispyware and antispyware as a part of their service. This is a large part of the proactive maintenance that your managed service provider performs. Tier3MD has been a managed service provider since 2005 and are very successful in providing healthcare managed IT services.

5 Benefits Of Hiring A Managed Service Provider

Benefits Of Hiring A Managed Service Provider (Msp)

Reduced firefighting, more strategy

Most organizations devote 80% of IT resources to simply maintaining the status-quo – troubleshooting, reacting to issues that crop up, patching, provisioning and so forth. That leaves little time to devote to strategic projects that address new opportunities and deliver real business value. Offloading some of the mundane, day to day tasks to an MSP can free up internal IT resources for more strategic endeavors.

Lower costs

Due to their economies of scale, experience and use of best practices, MSPs can often perform functions at a lower cost than an internal IT organization can.

More timely patches and updates

Hiring an MSP will ensure you stay up to date with the latest software patches, OS and application updates – functions that are too often pushed to the back burner in internal IT organizations that are stretched thin.

Improved security

Keeping those patches up to date improves a company’s security posture, helping to ensure it doesn’t fall victim to the latest form of malware. Companies that outsource security tasks such as security monitoring and vulnerability scanning will likewise stay ahead of the bad guys.

Increased uptime

Proactive support, with real-time network monitoring, consistent patching and proper security all contribute to keeping IT systems stable, leading to increased uptime. The ultimate goal of IT, after all, is to support the business – and increased uptime is crucial to that effort.
