The Benefits of Outsourcing your IT Security

The Benefits of Outsourcing your IT Security

Let’s be frank, Cybercriminals are relentlessly hacking websites, cracking databases, infiltrating mailboxes and sending an assortment of nasty viruses around the clock. Typically, only the largest of companies can afford to match the hackers round-for-round, 24/7.


In today’s fast-moving cybersecurity landscape, no sooner have you rid your company of one virus strain, another more lethal variant has been concocted. In an increasingly dangerous environment, progressive companies are leveraging international talent to cut costs and improve their cybersecurity by outsourcing.

By outsourcing your cybersecurity, you are taking the sting out of one of your IT teams core pain points, cutting costs while maintaining full control.



Cybersecurity is a broad and highly technical field. It’s neither practical or possible to be an expert in everything all the time. When internally managed, your IT staff need to possess a wide variety of skills encompassing network, platform, and application security. IT security is not an area of your business where you can afford to compromise. If you run a small operation, your IT security may not require a full-time specialist, but instead an on-hand, cost-effective, outsourced employee.

By choosing a Managed IT solution, you will have a wide spread of technical skills on hand to match your business needs. Managed IT security services will keep their staff up-to-date so you don’t have to, cutting out training costs and learning downtime.


Finding Security Talent


There are currently 1,000,000 unfilled IT security positions globally, with cybercrimes on the rise, qualified security professionals are more in demand than ever before. More in demand and more costly. For you, this means that finding the perfect individual who can solve your cybersecurity woes is exceptionally challenging. Take the hassle out of finding staff and the risk of paying over the odds in one fell swoop.


Saving Money


Probably the core reason, although IT security is a necessity – having a qualified IT security team is often a luxury most business cannot afford. Then there are additional training costs, HR costs, electricity and desk space and a whole manner of employee overheads which all eats into your bottom line.


If you have on-premise IT security, this probably means costly hardware, software and a constant stream of updates and patches. Managed IT can take care of all of this for you leaving you to focus on your core business.


Increased Flexibility:


Agile – the buzzword of the time. When you need to change a service, upscale or downscale an outsourced MSP solution gives you all the flexibility you need. Rather than being tied to long-term contracts and specific work schedules, our MSP gives you the power to upscale and downscale as you require.
