Last year proved challenging for those IT teams that didn’t have a strategy in place. In fact, in a survey commissioned by IBM, over half of IT security practitioners admitted to lacking a formal strategy for governing their network data. Furthermore, the study revealed that 75 percent of IT risks directly impact customer satisfaction and brand reputation.
It should go without saying that IT managers need a clear and comprehensive strategy to succeed this year. One way to guarantee an effective line of attack in 2014 is to consider employing the services of a managed service provider. Here’s why:
Become Part of a Quickly Growing Market: The managed IT services market is poised to grow from $142.75 billion in 2013 to $256 billion in 2018, according to research from MarketsandMarkets, representing a CAGR of 12.4 percent over the next five years.
