Managed Networks

With the increase in business that use networks as a focal point of there operations, finding a way to manage your network securely has never been so critical.

With the increase in technology, comes both the increasingly difficult task of monitoring and the risks of your network being attacked both externally and internally. Having routers, switches, hubs and severs is not enough. Active management of these processes and quick fault finding when things go wrong, is vital to keeping your operations running.

There are two solutions to managed networks:-

Internal IT department
Having your own internal IT department to monitor your network is one solution. This will usually involve some sort of monitoring software, that allows the staff, to closely diagnose faults, quickly apply patches and software maintenance either at local or central level, and monitor access both externally and internally to the network.

The cost of running such a team, or finding skilled staff has its own budget disadvantages. Because the network needs to be watched 24/7 (not just during business hours), especially during business growth or decline. Planned maintenance or software upgrades, are usually done at non core hours, to avoid minimum disruption, so this means paying an IT technician an out of hours wage. The cost of software to monitor a network can also be costly.

External Managed Network Services
This is why managed businesses now will offshore there network services to a managed network provider. Managed networks are monitored remotely by a team of experienced technicians, who will make sure that the entire network is kept operational at all times, and any problems or security alerts are picked up and acted on promptly.

This is normally done on a monthly retainer according to the size of the network and other business requirements. This allows the company to either scale back the IT support during a economic downturn or increase it as the business grows.
