Managed IT Services
The continued health and maintenance of your business IT infrastructure is of paramount importance – IT is typically the second-largest budget item in a business, making it a vital investment to protect. Outsourcing the management of your IT is the ideal solution to help you achieve maximum results from your hardware and software, in addition to having access to a large team of skilled technicians. Apart from the advantages inherent in a service dedicated exclusively to ensuring infrastructure health, there are also significant cost savings associated with allowing a Managed Services provider to handle such operations. Additionally, having all of your technological resources fully available at all times means there is no lost productivity due to IT-related downtime.
Printers, scanners, routers, wireless access points, and many more similar devices are connected to your network and workstations. They form a vital interconnected part of your business IT, so make sure you give them the attention they need to function optimally. Furthermore, looking after your devices helps keep your network safe from threats.
Firewalls form a critical intrusion detection and prevention component of a secure network. They also play a heavy role in managing network traffic. Yet they are only effective if they themselves are kept updated with the latest upgrades, monitored to ensure performance, and tweaked to suit your business environment.
Your staff’s ability to work to their full potential can be limited by under-performing workstations. What’s more, outdated software is not only a performance factor, it’s also a direct threat to your IT security. Ensuring that work machines are fully patched, updated and kept in optimal running condition is essential for maintaining productivity.
