Once a company grows beyond its first few employees, having its own IT network is an important resource; managed network services make that resource available to small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) that can’t afford a complete IT department.
Whether you buy your own services or pay to use a third-party cloud platform, managed network services reduce costs by splitting the overhead of running a network among many different companies—all of the provider’s clients.
System crashes are the bane of any IT department, and a company that tries to run its network on the cheap should expect to have more emergency downtime than its competitors.
The money that is saved on the network is quickly lost during unplanned system outages. Managed network services have much less downtime than in-house networks, and in some cases guarantee that unplanned downtime will never exceed a specific duration.
Even the most mundane company has to worry about cyber-security.
But with a third-party provider, your security becomes someone else’s problem, leaving you to focus on the bottom line.
