10 Reasons organizations switch to Managed IT services

What Makes Organizations Switch?

Over the last several years, organizations have become more familiar with managed services and are turning to them for management of certain IT functions, particularly email hosting, storage, backup and recovery, and network monitoring.

Whereas in the past, cost savings were seen as the primary benefit of MSPs, now clients are looking for additional benefits.

Here are the top 10 reasons from CompTIA

  1. Improve security.
  2. Proactive approach to IT problems.
  3. Better uptime.
  4. Gain access to newer technologies.
  5. Cost savings over in-house IT.
  6. Peace of mind.
  7. Free internal staff for strategic work.
  8. Tap into cloud solutions.
  9. Lack of internal IT.
  10. Handle remote office IT.

With cyberattacks on the rise, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see security at the top of the list of MPS benefits.

From 2014 to 2015, there was a 38 percent rise in cyberattacks, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers, and 43 percent of cyberattacks target small businesses, according to Symantec.

Because cyberattacks are a growing threat to organizations, looking for a way to boost security is very important for every organization, and MSPs can provide that extra level of security.
