There’s no doubt your business needs to tackle an onslaught of growing compliance requirements – and it’s likely it’s going to continue throughout the life of your organization. Moreover, we can’t ignore the growing sophistication and frequency of cyberattacks and threats to evolving IT infrastructures across the board.
Plus, the Covid-19 pandemic has compelled organizations to permanently switch to remote work. In all, it’s important to realize that in today’s digital and corporate stratosphere, data and infrastructure security, and compliance are two peas of the same pod.
In light of this, we’re going to talk about how it’s unwise to manage your company’s IT framework by yourself and how relying on reputed third-party players can help lower costs, ensure data safety, and much more.
The Shift Towards Managed IT Systems and How It Can Help Grow Your Business
1. Complexity in IT Systems and Threats
Nothing is more frustrating for a business then to consistently manage its data security and constantly adhere to changing regulations. This is especially true for start-ups, small, and medium organizations. In addition, a lot of industries are failing to find capable and skilled professionals who have experience and knowledge when it comes to compliance and security.
So, what do you do? Well, from a tactical standpoint, the best move you can make is to outsource your compliance to a capable and reputed IT management company. You’d be surprised to know that most financial companies do this to guarantee their processes will always be in line with the stated requirements.
However, another big reason why companies are choosing to outsource their IT compliance is because they can’t find the right type of people to build an in-house team. Outsourcing your IT landscape to a third-party organization is going to help achieve a peace of mind – it’s a simple method of ensuring you’re constantly safeguarded against cyberattacks.
2. Data Security and Governance
Protecting and monitoring your data security isn’t exactly easy. There are so many facets and risks involved – for example, changing government regulations and compliance, growing competition, changing market trends, increased technological and digital innovation, etc.
Moving towards an IT management service is going to help mitigate most of these risks. How? Well, IT management organizations are staffed with a roster of experienced professionals with qualifications in different industry niches. They can also help your business keep cybersecurity threats at bay by providing strategic risk analysis and proactive digital security methods. Overall, this helps considerably decrease your downtime and operational costs.
3. Reducing Costs
Hiring and maintaining an in-house IT monitoring and security team can be a costly endeavour, especially for a small business. Not to mention, most young to decently established organizations struggle with obtaining enough capital to invest in cutting-edge software and hardware resources.
However, outsourcing this struggle to a professional IT management company can help save you a lot of money by designating the best IT minds to your company’s data security. They’re equipped with best technological resources and operate across multiple customers, reducing the overall cost of their services.
In all, you’re only liable to pay for the services you need to use, whenever you need to use them. This is far more cost-effective then spending thousands searching for reliable candidates and building an in-house IT team.
4. It’s Not Smart to Rely on a Jack-of-All-Trades
There are a lot of costs involved in recruiting and training an in-house IT team, if you’re lucky enough to find great resources. Even if you do find the right individual, it’s going to be counterproductive to depend on them to maintain and secure your IT infrastructure on a day-to-day basis.
As a business, you need to stay on top of your cybersecurity and data protection strategies and counting one individual who isn’t a specialist can throw a wrench in future-proofing your systems. Not to mention, you’ll be spending a lot on retaining that employee.
5. It's Not Realistic to Monitor Your IT 24/7
We live in a highly sophisticated, competitive, and innovative digital ecosystem with regularly changing trends. Today, all businesses depend on a comprehensive and fool proof IT infrastructure to maintain and protect critical data.
It’s entirely different from the 90’s where only a handful of businesses used IT strategies to propel into the future. With that being said, it’s safe to say that you can’t realistically monitor your entire IT framework on a continual basis.
There’s too much room for error. Plus, imagine the amount of money you’ll be wasting covering discrepancies and frequent human errors. With a third-party IT management company, you’ll be able to focus on other critical aspects of your business while not worrying about your data and compliance.
