If you've been on the fence about whether or not in-house network management is the best option for your company, consider the following benefits of outsourcing network management.
Up To Date Infrastructure
Managing, maintaining and upgrading network infrastructure and management systems can be staggering tasks, even for a small company. Many businesses can handle the daily maintenance work without too many problems but don't have the support or resources to keep up with the latest technology, including new upgrades. Managed network services are on top of all of the newest updates, ensuring that your system is always up to date. This means that you don't have to worry about finding, recruiting and retained certified professionals and then helping them keep up with the latest technology and skills.
More and more businesses are employing remote workers who need access to the company network from virtually any location. These employees must have the same level of access that’s provided for the office. Managed network services have the resources to offer this level of access.
Higher Level Of Security
One of the biggest concerns about any company network is security. The last thing you want is to compromise sensitive business data. From client contact information to tax forms to confidential documents, there is a wealth of data within a network that shouldn't fall into the wrong hands. Managed network services keep up with the latest security threats as well as privacy and security regulations to make sure all of your data, transactions and communications stay safe.
Round The Clock Support
In-house network management is reliant on IT staff to handle all support issues. For most companies, it is not possible for these staff members to address these issues properly. Even a couple hours of downtime can be detrimental to an organization. Managed network services have the staff required to provide 24/7 support, ensuring that all issues get handled in a timely fashion. Outsourcing the support staff also frees up your IT department to focus on more important tasks around the office, such as core competencies and mission-critical processes.
