Health insurance is a service that provides peace of mind to individuals regarding their overall health and in the event of an illness or injury. If an individual does not have health insurance, that individual will save money as long as he or she never gets sick or injured. However, the probability of the individual getting ill or injured at some point is very high. If an illness or injury occurs, the costs will be drastically higher than the combined cost of paying for insurance and treatment to cure the illness or injury. Additionally, an individual with health insurance will most likely be more proactive about maintaining his or her health with maintenance check-ups. This same concept rings true with your business's network security and computer system health.
Having a Managed Service Provider (MSP) for your business’s network security and computer system health purposes provides peace of mind to businesses around overall network health for ongoing maintenance and in the event of a cyberattack or issue. MSPs offer managed IT services and are responsible for maintenance and monitoring, the anticipation of employing patch fixes and updates to ward off problems within the network and computer systems, and resolving issues if they occur. Due to the maintenance and monitoring, your business’s network security and computer systems will run with more efficiency and experience fewer problems, reducing costs overall. When businesses choose not to outsource their IT needs to an MSP, they either seek a costly break-fix service to resolve issues when they occur or have an expensive internal IT team to oversee the businesses’ network security and computer system health. The less maintenance and monitoring, the more frequently your business will experience network and computer issues. When network and computer system issues occur, your business will experience high costs to hire a break-fix company to fix the issue, but it will also experience costs in productivity; since time is money. If your business experiences a cybersecurity attack or problem, and the public is privy to that knowledge, then the reputation of your business would be negatively impacted, and you may not be able to recover from it. Every day over 4,000 businesses experience a cybersecurity breach, and 60% of small businesses that experience a breach are not able to recover. Small and medium-sized companies have a higher chance of being attacked by hackers; because without an MSP, the network security is easier to infiltrate and cause harm to the network and computer systems across each business. Internal IT teams require high salaries, benefits, and additional costs of technology programs and hiring efforts. Internal IT teams could experience a lot of downtime between monitoring the business’s network security and computer system health and fixing issues when they occur. Additionally, technology program costs can add up quickly, and businesses are at risk of making bad technology decisions, such as choosing programs that are not the best fit for the business, not having enough programs, having too many programs, or employing programs that are incompatible with each other negatively impacting the business.
