Having a Proactive approach is the best option!

Proactive Vs. Reactive. 

Traditionally, most businesses do not use proactive IT providers but use outsourced support to deal with their consistent IT problems which occur and cannot easily be dealt with in-house. This is a reactive response and something which may detriment your company more than you’d actually think.

A proactive approach is a far superior method of dealing with IT problems as it focuses on prevention and solving problems before they even occur. So what are the main benefits of a proactive approach then?

Less or no downtime

Proactive IT providers perform regular maintenance and constant monitoring of your systems, so most crashes and server failures are prevented before they even occur. Compare this to a reactive approach and you could be spending valuable work hours calling an outsourced IT company to solve the ongoing issue. This in turn costs your business time and therefore a lot of unnecessary money.

Zero stress

As proactive IT providers solve many issues before they happen, you may not even know about it, allowing you to focus on business development and your company’s sales. With a reactive approach however, you are forced to focus on the problem, call for help whilst waiting for the issue to be resolved.

Improve your IT processes

Are you certain that your IT system is safe & secure? With a proactive approach, IT health checks are frequently carried out, often daily or weekly. This allows your vendor to easily identify vulnerable areas of your business and fix them without you ever knowing about it!

Fixed fee with no extra hidden costs

With most Managed Server Providers offering a fixed monthly fee model with no extra costs, it is easier for your company to plan out an IT budget and dedicate money to other areas of the business. With no hidden costs!

A final thought…

A proactive approach to IT security is clearly a more efficient and reliable way of dealing with IT security. The catastrophic issues that could fault your workforce and cripple your business are simply non-existent, allowing you to focus more time on your company.
