A managed service provider (MSP) can be a valuable partner in your corner when it comes to securing your business from cyber attacks. Having a third party assess and manage your IT struggles helps you focus on the important things like running a business while your MSP focuses on ensuring you can do safely. If you're considering partnering with an MSP, here are a few reasons why you may consider hiring one.
1. Increasing Costs
Year after year the cost of implementing good cybersecurity practices is becoming more expensive. The amount spent globally on security is expected to grow by more than 11% in 2023, making security a costly endeavor. To keep up with emerging technologies companies must invest in new technology, new software, and new practices that can add up over time. An MSP can help shoulder the burden of cost when it comes to cyber security. Managed Service Provider's have the expertise and technology to keep up with the increasing financial demands of being cyber secure.
2. An Overwhelmed IT Staff
It's entirely possible that your organization has its own IT staff, but can this staff keep up with the increasing demands to stay secure? An MSP can come alongside your IT staff to help make sure they have the resources necessary to protect your business. CorpInfoTech offers fully or co-managed services meaning that we can be your IT staff, or help your existing staff be the best they can be.
3. You're Concerned About Your Security
Maybe you're in the middle of recovering from a ransomware attack. Maybe you've heard about the rise of phishing on the news and want to get on top of it. There are many reasons why your organization may want to be secure, but whatever the reason, an MSP can help you protect your business both externally and internally. With the sheer amount of attacks made against SMB's, letting cybersecurity fall by the wayside is no longer an option.
4. You Want to be Compliant?
Many industries must adhere to regulating bodies and requirements in order to conduct business with the government or various agencies. Whether it be NIST, CMMC, HIPAA, FINRA, etc. it's important that when you take the steps to become compliant, you do it right. As an MSP, CorpInfoTech works with a multitude of businesses within regulated industries and are experts at implementing and helping an organization maintain compliance for most regulating bodies. If you're worried you may fall short when it comes to audit time, make sure you contact CorpInfoTech to to help you on your compliance journey.
5. You're Aiming to be Proactive
Many companies take a reactive approach to security. They often wait for the worst to happen before they take their security seriously. This "reactive" tactic often leads to the death of many organizations as they don't have an adequate plan to recover from a large scale cyber attack. At CorpInfoTech we help businesses take a proactive approach to security.
