Does Your Internal IT Staff Need Help? 

Businesses in every industry often find themselves asking this question. 

In fact, it’s part of a conversation that we have with our potential clients time and time again. It’s important to remember that asking for help is never a bad thing, and it’s no reflection on the capabilities of your undoubtedly hardworking internal IT team.

Instead, think of your consultation with a company like Access One as a specialized, expert approach to enhancing security. 

There are so many different elements concerning what makes a company function from a technical standpoint. Nowadays, IT departments are dealing with things like cloud computing, big data and so much else – and in a lot of ways, these advancements we’ve seen in the last twenty years or so have done wonders for the way we do business. 

Operations are more efficient and the level of service is generally higher. But, as technology gets smarter and more adaptable, so do cybersecurity threats and their perpetrators. 

Ransomware, data breaches, and a wide range of targeted threats are all on the table, and no matter how dedicated your internal IT team is, that’s a daunting task. And let’s not forget, they’re also in charge of maintaining the day-to-day operations of your business. 

That’s where a partnership with a managed service provider like Access One comes in. 

Managed IT isn’t a takeover, it’s a support system. Utilizing a managed service provider can help your internal team succeed, free up more of their time and connect everything back to an established cybersecurity strategy that can stand up against prospective cyberthreats. 

And we’d be wrong not to mention the undeniable advantages that an internal team brings to a business – a deep understanding of the company, its history and culture and unique needs are absolutely invaluable and irreplaceable.  On the other hand, we bring a broader breadth of knowledge on the IT industry as a whole, using previous industry experience to our advantage to predict potential pitfalls and stop them before they become a problem. You can probably see how this might make a beneficial partnership.
