What is a managed services provider (MSP)?

A managed services provider (MSP) is an IT services provider that assumes the responsibilities of managing and monitoring a business’s information technology needs. These needs typically include network monitoring, remote data backup, network security, and other state-of-the-art technology services like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Think of a managed services provider as an outsourced IT department whose sole responsibility is to make sure your IT systems continue to operate at their peek performance levels.

By monitoring your network 24 hours a day, seven days a week, an MSP can help your business avoid many information technology problems before they become an issue, and, if a problem does occur, an experienced MSP technician can troubleshoot and resolve your problem efficiently.

So when disaster strikes, like that hurricane that swept through Matawan last August, a managed services provider can help your business continue running with as little interruption as possible, potentially saving you from substantial productivity and revenue losses.

A MSP could save your business a lot of money.

For many businesses, outsourcing their IT support services is far more cost-effective than setting up and supporting in-house IT equipment.
