The Benefits of an MSSP in 2022

by Erik Briceno

It no longer matters what your company does. It doesn’t matter what your organization stands for. It doesn’t matter what you’re selling, or even if you’re selling anything. Today, we live in a world where literally everyone is online. Your company likely has at least some sort of internet presence, regardless of size. And because of that, cybersecurity is a sweeping issue that now affects us all — no matter how much one might think otherwise.

The majority of businesses don’t have the time or the cash flow needed to focus on cybersecurity by themselves — not if they hope to focus on what they’re actually trying to do. That’s where a managed security service provider is meant to come in.

Managed IT is cost effective.

Since managed IT services allow organizations to focus on what matters to them, this saves money in the long term. Most managed services cost less than it would to foot the bill for services and staff yourself. Organizations that use managed service providers typically have access to 30 to 40 IT employees who are experts in multiple areas of the IT industry, including networking, storage, virtualization, compliance, security, software, and more.

What if I have an existing IT department?

Managed services don’t necessarily have to replace an in-house IT team if you already have one. In fact, many organizations that have their own IT staff often work in conjunction with an MSSP — freeing up the IT staff to work on more important projects for your company, such as those that can grow your business. Developing a custom application for your brand is a good example of this.

Cyber threats are rising exponentially, and you won’t have time to do your real job.

The Benefits of an MSSP in 2022If you spent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, monitoring, reacting, creating proactive IT solutions, putting out fires (and preventing them) — all of which is absolutely required for any business today thanks to the world we now live in — you would simply never get anything done. You don’t have time to keep up with modern IT issues while simultaneously performing the activities that your organization was originally intended for. An MSSP helps with this tremendously.

Indeed, at V2 Systems, it’s literally in our mission statement: “Concentrate on your vision. We’ll handle the technology.” In today’s world, this service is a necessity. Not everyone is a tech expert, and they shouldn’t be expected to be. You should be able to focus on what actually matters to you, no matter how bad things are getting. We do our job so that you’re able to do yours.

Since 1995, Manassas Park, VA-based V2 Systems has employed local systems administrators, network engineers, security consultants, help desk technicians and partnering companies to meet a wide range of clients’ IT needs, from research, to implementation, to maintenance. Concentrate on your VISION…We’ll handle the TECHNOLOGY!
