3 Reasons SMB Leaders Prefer Managed IT Services

As a small or medium-sized business (SMB) owner, you wear many hats. One of those responsibilities may be IT security, although you may have a nagging suspicion that your company is not adequately protected. With cyberattacks continuing to escalate, there's no time like today to put all of your options on the table. For many SMBs, outsourcing IT security is the best solution. Here's why.

Let's Address Your Concerns with IT Security

It's understandable to have concerns anytime you consider bringing an outsider into your business, and when it comes to IT security, the risks couldn't get much higher. Here are three common questions we'd like to help answer for you.

  1. Why does my small business need a professional IT security solution?

    Criminals are indiscriminate when it comes to stealing sensitive information, and small organizations are considered easier targets than large, well-protected corporations. Small businesses are often ill-equipped to weather the storm in the aftermath of a cyber attack, and with no fast path to recovering lost information or surviving a tarnished reputation, most eventually close their doors.

  2. Can my company afford managed IT security solutions?

    Outsourcing may seem like an option only for well-funded organizations, but that's not the case. A managed IT security solution not only protects your business from devastating cyberattacks, but it does so at a predictable monthly cost designed to address your needs. Moreover, you'll be protected from the much higher cost of recovering your information if the worst happens.

  3. Is it less expensive to handle IT security in-house?

    Professional IT security providers prioritize the latest training and tools to make sure they're ready to address emerging threats. By engaging their services, you'll have access to the latest skills without the high costs associated with an in-house team.
