Companies need managed service providers (MSPs) to nullify risks and ensure consistency in their IT operations. MSPs handle all upgrade and maintenance tasks, allowing managers to focus on their business. They also assess current and future IT needs, advising on the type of products and services to implement. With the pay-as-you-go model, companies can purchase cloud services without consuming a large part of their IT budget.
Sharing responsibility for network management helps reduce expenses and infrastructure responsibilities, leading to more cost savings. Managed services free up employees to focus on their jobs while allowing companies to fill gaps only when needed. Depending on customer requirements, MSPs can oversee a single IT function or monitor the entire IT environment. A managed service provider with a positive reputation in the market has in-house talent or direct access to a variety of skills that they can implement for their projects.
Kaseya VSA is a unified remote monitoring and management (URMM) tool that allows MSPs to manage traditional endpoints, as well as a new generation of “devices”, including virtual machines and the cloud. The pandemic has shown that businesses using an MSP for their IT fared much better than those that didn't. Managed services are available to small businesses looking for outsourcing options for their IT needs. By outsourcing day-to-day management responsibilities, companies can improve operations and reduce costs.
