Almost every enterprise uses computers these days. But not all of them have the expertise or the resources to own a dedicated IT admin team. The alternative? Subscribing to the services of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) who can remotely manage enterprise networks for a fixed sum, thereby cutting enterprise costs, and allowing enterprises to focus on improving their business.
Managed Service Providers are third-party companies responsible for managing and maintaining enterprise networks so that these enterprises can focus on bettering their services without worrying about interruptions or break-downs. Employing MSPs is a strategic method of improving day-to-day enterprise-related operations.
Almost every company today uses computers, but many companies are not able to handle computer or network-maintenance activities. Such enterprises can make use of the services of an MSP.
MSPs have been around since the 1990s. Initially, they were known as Application Service Providers (ASPs), which were solely responsible for remote IT infrastructure management. Over the years their services have expanded to include mobile device management, remote firewall administration, and security-as-a-service.
The first books on the topic of managed services were “Service Agreements for SMB Consultants” and “The Guide to a Successful Managed Services Practice,” both of which were published in 2006 by Palachuck and Simpson respectively.
Cost Effective: Unplanned repair services can cost enterprises a lot of money. By hiring MSPs, enterprises can regulate such costs by paying fixed monthly costs which cover every kind of repair and service cost on a contractual basis.
Improved Security: Equipped with backup and disaster recovery plans for every probable incident enterprise networks may encounter, MSPs greatly improve enterprise.
24/7/365 Network Monitoring: Managed Service Providers often guarantee round-the-clock network protection through the use of sophisticated network monitoring tools.
Comprehensive Reporting: MSPs can offer a solid overall view of the enterprise infrastructure, which helps MSP executives keep track of everything that happens in their company.
