Keeping a small in-house IT staff to manage and maintain the network, system software and to manage hardware issues is not always easy for a small to mid-sized business.
Having an in-house IT team is costly for most businesses, and with the option to outsource to managed IT and network security services, it is often not an effective practice. Additionally, as this is the main function of these companies, they are aware of current research, best practices, system vulnerabilities and even security options. This can provide a small to mid-sized business with the latest in up-to-date network security at an extremely affordable cost.
Flexibility of Services
The best companies offering network security services and managed IT support provides flexibility in what they are offering to tailor to the needs of the business. This means the company is only paying for the services they need, and they are paying a flat rate per month for easy budgeting for the year.
Flexibility also means the network security company can add on services as the business grows or changes their system. Being responsive to the security needs of the company in real-time is a benefit to outsourcing.
A very important aspect of using a third-party provider for network security services is the ability of the outsourced company to do a full audit of the current security in the network and throughout the system.
This is often overlooked with an in-house IT team as they work on the system all the time. However, with the full security audit, vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the software and hardware on the system can be easily identified.
The service company will then develop a plan to address those issues, which will provide a greater level of protection across the system rather than approaching it from a component by component basis.
