“Not all MSPs are created equal.”
Many businesses outsource their IT support to a IT company with a break/fix business model.
This works out cheaper than working with an experienced managed service partner (MSP) but comes with significant drawbacks.
Break/fix is reactive, whereas an experienced MSP will deal with IT issues proactively.
Strategy-focused support from an MSP adds value to your business, making IT decisions based on your wider business strategy. Conversely, break/fix adds no value to your business and will ultimately result in you spending more money than you save.
Ultimately – with IT support, you typically get what you pay for.
How good is your data management?
Data breaches are catastrophic – for any business.
They’re expensive, erode trust, and the cleanup can take a really long time.
A data breach is also a signal to cyber criminals that your business is ripe for exploitation. This increases the risk of another cyber attack.
You can minimise this risk with a robust IT strategy and cyber security plan, as part of a managed service.
In short, cyber crime will cost your business money in some form.
Our view is that prevention is better than cure.
