In the era of digitalization, business data and IT departments are at the center of all the most successful businesses. From email hosting systems to cloud storage and even cyber security solutions, businesses need a huge range of technologies just to function on a small scale.

What is a Cloud Managed Service Provider?

While many businesses try to keep everything in-house in an effort to maintain a sense of control, most soon realize the inefficiency of doing so. Part of the gain of outsourcing IT cloud managed services is that you can leverage Infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service solutions that help pivot your business and focus on digital transformation. This way, you get the benefits of both private cloud systems and public cloud systems - that is trusted, reliable, tailor-made and highly simplified cloud services. Read on for 7 of the most convincing reasons you should outsource your IT services to a vendor like Sangfor.

Benefits of Using a Cloud Managed Service Provider 

1. Free up time

When you keep all of your IT services in-house, you need to invest a significant amount of resources in keeping everything running smoothly. On a relatively small scale, this is a costly expense which could be holding your business back. Instead of spending an excessive amount of time and money on in-house IT services, outsourcing them allows you to re-allocate budgets and employees to tasks which need their direct attention and contribute to the growth and success of your business.

2. Leverage the experience of experts

Hiring in-house experts is both a costly and difficult task. One of the benefits of managed IT services and support is that you can leverage the experience of countless experts and a dedicated team working for that company. If you select a good vendor like Sangfor, they will have years of cumulative experience working for companies of all sizes and in all industries - experience that they can carry forward to your company and provide much more professional services than your in-house team could provide, but at a fraction of the cost.

3. Predictable & lower costs

When working with cloud managed service providers (MSPs), you will agree on a set contract and pricing agreement. You'll be paying far less in operational costs as not only are they are considerably more flexible than an in-house equivalent and you only need to scale, when necessary, but they also make use of economies of scale to reduce costs. As well as cost savings, it will be much more predictable. You'll know exactly how much you need to pay a year or more in advance and can budget much more effectively for the future of your business.

4. State-of-the-art technology

Leading cloud managed service providers will always have access to the most modern and state-of-the-art cloud infrastructure when it comes to outsourced IT services. Through a subscription-based outsourcing arrangement, you can be sure that your business is using the most up-to-date technology - all without having to worry about anything onyour end.

5. Easily scalable

When managing IT services in-house, scaling is cumbersome and difficult. Finding the personnel to manage and the hardware to expand your IT services is both time-consuming and expensive. One of the major benefits of outsourcing managed IT services is that you are able to leverage the flexible service models of MSPs. Scaling your business' IT services is as simple as talking to your MSP and expanding your subscription to cover what you need, when you need it.

6. Increased security

In this day and age, cyber security should be one of your business’s foremost concerns. Cyber attacks are becoming commonplace for businesses of all sizes - not just MNCs and government organizations. Smaller businesses are being targeted precisely because they are considered easy targets with lax cyber security defenses, so it's important to keep your business data and networks secure no matter how small or new your business is.

The problem is that handling your own IT services in-house while worrying about cyber security is incredibly difficult to manage effectively. Outsourcing IT services and management to cloud MSPs also hands-off this responsibility. If you choose a vendor like Sangfor, we have industry-leading knowledge in the cyber security space and will ensure that all your cloud managed services are kept secure.

7. Act like a huge company - even if you're not

Smaller businesses have less resources and budget to play around with when it comes to IT services and other expenses. Working with cloud security managed services allows you to run your business on the same playing field as these huge businesses when it comes to the technology and systems you run your business on.
