Businesses need to look after a range of processes and functions to ensure they walk on the path to achieve their goals. At times they need to offload their tasks to external resources for improved service, and reduce budgetary expenses. Organizations seek managed IT and security services to handle the day-to-day monitoring and management of their operations. Read this blog to understand different aspects of managed IT and security services and how you can leverage them to enjoy the benefits of a modern IT experience.

Managed IT Services

Managed IT Services refers to the process of entrusting the IT operations of a company to third-party vendors known as Managed Service Providers. IT service providers offer a wide range of services, such as security, backups, continuous monitoring, and on-demand support, which help to scale businesses by increasing efficiency and productivity. Some main factors that have spurred the demand for managed IT services are:

  • Lack of technical proficiency
  • Significant increase in cyber-attacks and data breaches
  • Fulfilling regulatory compliance
  • Staying in sync with technological advancements

Types of Managed IT Services

Network and System Monitoring

MSPs monitor and manage network and systems remotely, enabling organizations to focus on performance and minimize losses.

Applications Support

MSP specialists offer support for post release, minor & major bug fixing, installation, operation, and maintenance of computer software application programs.

System Design and Upgrades

To keep pace with evolving technology trends, MSPs help organizations upgrade their existing infrastructure to outrank their competitors.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

It is essential to have adequate data backups to ensure data integrity and easy recoverability during data loss.

Analytics and Reporting

As organizations grow, there is a more pressing need for effectively monitoring IT environment to ensure performance. MSPs provide regular reports and analysis of network status, Internet connectivity, performance issues, and other details to drive better business process management.

Managed Security Services

Managed security services refer to outsourcing network security services to a trusted security provider known as a managed security service provider. As businesses grow and scale, protecting digital assets, data, and endpoints from external breaches becomes critical. Also, they need to evolve with the changing dynamics of the security landscape to prevent infiltrations. The main categories of managed security services include:

  • On-site consulting
  • Product resale
  • Managed security monitoring
  • Penetration testing
  • Vulnerability assessments
  • Perimeter management of the client’s network
  • Compliance monitoring

Managed Security Services Provider

A managed security service provider offers information security monitoring and management services around the clock to identify and avert malicious attacks. Some of the primary services provided by MSSPs include Virtual Private Network, virus and spam blocking, firewalls, intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance, and upgrades. Also, they formulate security recommendations and policies to safeguard the organization’s infrastructure cost-effectively.
