A good internet provider delivers high-speed, symmetrical internet. An even better internet provider can also deliver security that protects the data coming across your organization’s connection.
Securing your network
The network is the foundation of your organization’s technology. When it’s outdated or lacks security, everything else suffers. Programs struggle to upload and download data. Digital conference calls glitch and freeze. Unexpected outages cause employee downtime. All these network issues could point to potential security and industry compliance concerns.
Business leaders who want to focus on company growth rather than IT security often outsource network management to a managed service provider (MSP). Many of these entities employ certified IT specialists who can fully support your network. Services typically include configuring, patching, and monitoring your firewalls, routers, LAN, SD-WAN, and Wi-Fi. Most MSPs will provide hardware like firewalls and routers so that you do not have to cover those large expenses. Well-established IT companies can also bring to the table regionally based 24/7 support and an entire team of highly trained IT engineers.
When you are choosing an internet company, be sure to also consider if they can also manage your network. Not only will these services secure your network, but they can empower financial growth and business scalability by reducing IT costs and simplifying your infrastructure.
