October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and as we continue to observe this year’s theme “See Yourself in Cyber,” it’s a good time to reflect on the importance of cybersecurity and keeping your business safe. One of the top, most surefire ways of protecting your business and educating your employees is to hire a managed IT service provider (MSP). A cybersecurity solutions provider can help your business boost its cybersecurity posture in several ways. Let’s review some of them.

How a Cybersecurity Provider Can Help You

For smaller businesses, managed service providers might not seem like an affordable cybersecurity solution for you. Many businesses believe that they can cut costs by handling cybersecurity in-house. However, this do-it-yourself cybersecurity solution often backfires, leaving your company vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Combat Your Lack of Expertise 

The biggest reason businesses DIY their cybersecurity is to save money on expensive solutions and services. But, by not having an MSP, you could be sacrificing years of experience, cybersecurity best practices, and access to the latest technology.

An IT service provider will equip your business with around-the-clock monitoring, which can help identify cybersecurity threats before they happen. They’ll also have a team of experts who are constantly updating their knowledge so that they can offer the latest cybersecurity solutions to their clients.

Increase Your Resources

Most businesses also don’t have the adequate resources needed to establish an in-house cybersecurity team. This includes money for expensive tools and services, as well as the time needed to properly train employees on how to use them.

One big benefit of working with an MSP is that you’ll have peace of mind knowing your business is being protected 24/7. This way, if a cybersecurity threat does arise, you can be confident that someone will be there to address it immediately.

Data Backup and Recovery

Data loss caused by failure in hardware or software, or disasters like storms or cybersecurity breaches can be devastating to any business. In the event of a cybersecurity breach, a managed IT provider can help you quickly recover any lost data. They’ll have backups of your data so that you don’t have to start from scratch if something happens.

The Importance of Continually Improving Your Cybersecurity Posture

It’s important to note that hiring an MSP is just one part of maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture. Just as new technologies and updates are made available, so too do new threats arise. That’s why it’s essential to continually improve your cybersecurity posture.

An IT specialist can help with this by staying up-to-date on the latest cybersecurity threats and solutions. They can also help you implement new technologies and updates as they become available.
