Offloading Tasks: Part of the appeal of an IT services firm or MSP is offloading rote tasks and time-consuming processes. This helps an organization step away from tactical tasks — a.k.a. “keeping the lights on” — to more strategic endeavors. As a result, it’s important to ask vendors how they can help your enterprise become more strategic — and understand how they plan to make this happen.

Managed service providers monitor, supervise and secure outsourced network or application procedures on behalf of the organizations that are using those services. MSPs have specialized infrastructure, human resources and industry certifications, and they provide 24/7 monitoring and provisioning of additional services for their clientèle. MSPs that provide servers and network services have massive data center facilities, which can host a number of different Web applications, private enterprise or vertical software applications, and simultaneously interconnect networks through virtual private networking to many different sourcing organizations and individuals.
Again, this is great for the budget conscious business owners. The upfront cost of having to purchase all of the tools needed for these services would be a huge blow to your budget. Having a MSP that you can rent (or lease) the necessary equipment and tools saves you that money. All while being able to hand off the responsibilities to an expert organization, keeping your time open to handle your normal day to day duties.

2020 has seen a steady and continued trend of continued attacks against MSPs. Unfortunately for many SMBs, they have been brought into a new reality: They are included as victims by inheritance through their use of MSPs, often through no fault of their own. These SMBs are stuck in an ultimate catch-22. As they are far too small to effectively invest in their own IT management, partnering with an MSP makes sense. Yet this partnership can be fraught with new risks, many of which the SMB sector itself doesn't fully recognize.
