Almost every business leader at one point faces the dilemma of whether to list the services of a cybersecurity provider or have an IT Guy. Both alternatives have their fair shares of pros and cons, but cybersecurity providers stand out as the better option. Here’s why and a detailed comparison of the two.
Using technology can make business operations more efficient by automating and streamlining processes. It has become so integral to business processes that a slight glitch can cost your organization thousands, or even millions, in terms of downtime and recovery costs. It’s a no-brainer, therefore, that every business leader is keen to ensure that they have the best brains and skill-sets managing their IT infrastructure.
Maintaining an internal IT team may seem to be the best option at first glance. It means having a team fully dedicating their time to managing your network. A staff that understands your processes and identifies with your vision. An IT department that designs and implements custom solutions that suit your unique IT support needs. Isn’t that the dream of every business owner? Yes, but not until you consider the financial obligations that come with maintaining an internal IT department.
You may have to acquire and continually update different software and technologies. Also, having in-house, salaried IT personnel means that you’ll pay them monthly salaries, approximately $51,838 annually, for an IT specialist, give them holiday allowances, and cater to their insurance covers. Because IT is a rapidly evolving field, you must also facilitate regular capacity building for your internal IT team to keep them at par with emerging trends. This can be a heavy burden for most small and medium-sized businesses. That explains why most SMBs opt for an IT Guy instead. An IT technician can be a salaried professional or one that you call on convenience.
While hiring or employing an IT Guy saves you the financial stress of maintaining an entire department; it has several drawbacks:
Cybersecurity providers are third party IT support companies that manage your networks, end-user systems, and the entire Information Technology infrastructure. They are a more cost-effective way of getting high-quality IT management. So, why are cybersecurity providers better than hiring or employing an IT Guy?
These are just a few reasons cybersecurity providers are better than IT guys. Above all, ensure that whatever solution you settle with addresses your company’s IT needs fully.
