Why Outsourcing IT Management is More Beneficial for Businesses

3 August 2018

Not all businesses have the facilities or resources to have their own in house IT department who are on hand to solve issues, update softwares and protect data. Before you go hiring a team of IT experts which could cost a fortune in salaries, consider outsourcing your IT management from an expert IT support company such as ICT Solutions who have the time, technology and expertise to look after your IT infrastructure 24 hours a day.

Why does your business need IT management?

It’s impossible to run an entire business without a helping hand and if you want your computer hardware to perform efficiently and productivity to be at a high level all of the time then you need IT management.

IT management takes the burden off you and if problems do occur they can be resolved quickly and efficiently. Not having proper management of your IT infrastructure leaves your business vulnerable. The majority of businesses now work online which means that lots of personal and sensitive data is stored on computers. The risk you face with this is having this data stolen by cyber hackers – a prevalent issue in today’s society.

A one-man band doesn’t have the capacity or time to keep on top of security and prevent these sorts of cyber attacks from occurring, but a team of IT experts whose job it is to do just this, do have the time, capacity and resources.

You can install all of the latest anti-virus protection softwares but if security isn’t monitored and softwares aren’t regularly updated, your business is still at risk to these threats.

IT management services

With IT management by ICT Solutions we offer a number of security services such as:

  • Ransomware detection
  • Anti-virus software
  • Firewalls
  • Password management
  • Disaster recovery plans
  • Secure wifi with guest logins
  • Data backup
  • Real-time monitoring

Our security services cover all eventualities, and if disaster does strike we’re on the ball and have recovery plans in place.

Our services are managed via the cloud away from your premises so you don’t have to worry about us getting in the way of daily business operations. We make updates and solve problems remotely to avoid disruption to your business. This is one of the benefits of outsourcing your IT management rather than recruiting a team in house.

As well as security, our cloud services also improve work performance and productivity. The cloud allows you to work from anywhere and is fully scalable, so if your business grows our IT services can easily adapt to this. The cloud is on demand and you pay for what you need at the time which is a lot more affordable than paying a monthly salary for each member of IT staff.

Outsourcing IT management takes the responsibility and stress away from you and allows you to focus on other business matters. It makes your business more secure, productive and profitable so it’s worthwhile taking on board the services of an IT support company such as ICT Solutions.
