What Is a Managed Service Provider?

IT is a vast undertaking in today’s quickly evolving workplace that many professionals don’t have the time, resources, or expertise to manage.

As a result, many are turning to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to fill the gap and simplify their most complex IT projects. Most MSPs offer small to medium-sized businesses remote IT support for a fraction of the cost of hiring an in-house team. MSPs provide ongoing monitoring, expert advice, and troubleshooting to keep a business’s infrastructure running smooth.
