Cybersecurity is becoming more important every year. We might not hear about it on a daily basis, but we see the results of it (or lack thereof).
Last year the headlines were taken over by the pandemic that very few data breaches made the front pages anymore, but there were just as many if not more as the previous years.
Some of the big names that were hit last year were Microsoft, Walgreens, T-Mobile, Zoom, Facebook, Twitter, the webhosting site GoDaddy, and many more
Looking at the list of companies that were victims of cyber-attacks, you’re probably inclined to think that it’s only a problem for Fortune500 and other big companies, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
A small business is one that has less than 500 employees in their payroll. Given this metric, more than 99% of all businesses in the United States are considered a small business. Looking at these numbers, it stands to chance that a small business is more likely to be the target of a cyber attack than their large counterparts. Small businesses might not be an attractive payoff for cyber criminals, but they are a much easier target. Think about this, large companies have a nearly unlimited budget for their IT infrastructure, IT staff, and managed by hundreds of Engineers. In comparison, most small business do not have the budget to hire a single full time IT staff member that can secure and manage their infrastructure. So, what can they do to protect themselves while not breaking the bank? The solution is a Managed Service IT provider, such as TRA Consulting, manage your IT infrastructure while only costing you a fraction of having an in-house IT staff. Managed Service Providers, or MSP’s, help you outsource the much-needed role of IT and security to an experienced company, like TRA Consulting, which will give you the peace of mind that you are saving money and your network is safe and secure.
Basically, Managed service IT providers are your on-demand IT staff that you can contract for only the services that you need or when you have an issue that needs resolved (break-fix model). Another thing the managed service IT provider can do it to become your complete IT department, from the simple like installing printers to the complex like deploying and securing servers. All in all, Managed Service IT Providers are the way to go for small companies that do not have the budget for a full-time IT staff.
