Can You Trust A Third Party Managed Services Provider?

You and your colleagues are very careful about protecting sensitive information. Few people have access to your inner circle. And you aim to keep it this way.

Rest assured, there is nothing wrong with this strategy. The tighter you are about security, the less likely you will be to suffer an information leak. If more businesses adopted this tight-lipped mentality, there would be far fewer breaches! It's amazing how reckless some companies are when it comes to sharing private information.

But this begs the question: Who CAN you actually trust?  

Let’s look at this from an IT perspective. Many business leaders choose to keep their data center management processes in-house, believing their systems are safer this way. They do so under the false impression that their IT workers always have their best interests in mind. But this is not always the case.

Sometimes, the people you trust the most can wind up hurting you. As we mentioned in a recent blog post, over 44 percent of all cyberattacks last year were designed by malicious insiders. And in one survey, a quarter of employees claimed they would sell company data for less than $8,000.

If you are serious about protecting your company’s data and infrastructure, you may want to consider working with a third party managed services provider (MSP).

Why should you trust a private MSP to look after your IT environment? 

Consider this: 

An MSP will provide guaranteed, SLA-backed security for your organization.  You will enter into a business agreement with a company whose reputation depends squarely on protecting its clients. There would be financial, and legal, ramifications for the MSP if one of its employees tampers with your business in any way.

Rest assured, we are not suggesting all of your IT workers are out to get you! But if you are holding back from working with an MSP because you can't trust them, it's time to reconsider your thinking. You’ll find that it’s a cost-effective, flexible and secure way to receive critical network support.
