How To Be More Secure By Using A Managed Service Provider
There is a new trick to combat cybersecurity weaknesses, and it’s becoming impossible for cybercriminals to penetrate! How can you build a more secure environment?
Why? Because, unless you’re a charity, you’re not in business to give everything away to the first person who tries to take it from you. You didn’t work to achieve your success, only to one day have the success from your vision or idea taken away. You poured time, resources, and money into your dream to make it a reality, and to have nothing to show for it at the end of the day isn’t anyone’s dream.
More hours are spent using the Internet now, exponentially, compared to the previous generation, and much of that time is dedicated to professional use. With the explosive adaptation of cloud-based services, like Microsoft Office 365 and Google’s G Suite, the Internet is a fundamental operational element. Whether your business stores all your proprietary data in the cloud or you just access in-house servers through your network, the Internet is an office staple – including home offices!
If your team collaborates using Microsoft Teams in Office 365, you already store and share files using the Internet, and communicate in the same channels. Other cloud-based apps commonly used by businesses include:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) programs like Salesforce
- Project management platforms like Basecamp and JIRA
- Web-based file storage solutions like Microsoft’s SharePoint and OneDrive
- Amazon Web Services apps
- Microsoft Azure apps
- And many more
With the use of the Internet comes the need to secure Internet connections. A secure Internet connection offers users safe access to email, cloud-based apps, and their network. Network security is a critical component for today’s businesses. Investing in your future shouldn’t leave your business open for someone to come along and take it all away. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a new way to prevent Internet bad guys from accessing your network and stealing your data?
The number of companies partnering with managed service providers (MSPs) has skyrocketed and is growing every day due to their ability to increase your productivity while reducing your costs. By focusing their business model on a specific set of services, managed service providers are able to offer customers significant savings. Savings are realized in various ways:
- The reduction or elimination of internal full-time staff resources needed to dedicate to technology, replaced by a low monthly fee
- Companies can take advantage of economies of scale for hardware purchases, given MSPs can acquire larger quantities of goods at reduced costs.
- Discounted services in concentrated areas, like cloud storage or network security
Companies that find challenges in adequately supplying resources and take advantage of partnerships with managed service providers tout the benefits of advanced cybersecurity and managed detection and response (MDR) services.
- What are managed detection and response services? Managed service providers that offer a range of cybersecurity services dedicated to technology that focuses on round-the-clock monitoring for threats with resources ready to engage if an attack is detected to protect customers from an incident.
MDR services are a specific skillset offered by MSPs that focus on cybersecurity, and often involve nonstop network surveillance to alert customers of intrusions. These cybersecurity teams also take control of network security resources as required to ensure the utmost in protection. With the information involved, the threat of a data breach is too great to take lightly and the promise of full-time policing is enticing.
