How To Choose The Right MSP
Managed IT service providers can empower your company by alleviating you of the day-to-day hassle of managing your IT infrastructure. With an MSP, you always have access to a team of professionals to assist with any issues that may occur on a daily basis. Furthermore, with device monitoring MSPs ensure that your infrastructure is always up-to-date and healthy, minimizing the risk of disasters occurring at all.
However, with so many options available, what factors should you consider when partnering with an MSP?
Reliable and fast support
One of the most important aspects to consider when choosing an MSP is the quality and speed of the response time. When an IT issue occurs, time is often of the essence – for every moment that the issue goes unresolved, productivity and workflow suffer. Furthermore, IT issues left unresolved for long periods of time can sometimes cause more severe issues down the line, especially if they pertain to out-of-date software. GIGE Corporation offers a 30 minute guaranteed response time to any service request, ensuring that a technician is assigned to your issue reliably and quickly, without failure.
Another major function of an MSP is to manage your organization’s IT security, protecting your endpoints, servers and access points from ransomware and other malware strains. GIGE Corporation’s security services cover every base, including full endpoint security, intrusion monitoring, spam filtering, web browsing protection, and VPN. An extensive solution like this will protect your company against cyberattacks such as ransomware or phishing schemes.
Disaster Recovery Protocols
Data storage management and disaster recovery protocols are two immensely important aspects of IT management that you should ensure your MSP has the expertise to handle. In times of data storage failure due to physical disasters such as floods or from a cyberattack, the financial costs of being unprepared can become quickly unmanageable. In these events, properly planned recovery management protocols are essential to ensuring that your organization is never at risk of data loss.
Number of Partners
It is important to ensure that the MSP that you work with has a large number of available partners, as they will be able to design more customized solutions for your organization’s unique needs and budgetary requirements.
Reputation and History
It is essential to verify the integrity of the company’s history in order to ensure that a legitimate organization is handling and protecting your sensitive company information.
