Today’s businesses still require a lot of hardwork and dedication, but technology assists with day-to-day tasks, and gives more opportunities than we could otherwise imagine. As such, it needs to be in optimal shape, but what business has the time to see to that? Well, with the help of remote monitoring and management, yours does.
Establishing What RMM Does
Remote monitoring and maintenance is the practice of analyzing the IT a business has in place in order to detect potential or incoming issues before they strike. Once these issues are detected, proactive maintenance can take place to mitigate them, and the MSP--or managed service provider-- doesn’t even need to send one of their resources on a trip offsite.
Improved Knowledge on Incoming Threats
This data also allows the MSP to gain insights into your systems and the kind of threats that darken your doors most often, which in turn enables the MSP to customize your protections to better thwart these varieties of threats. You would likely never know there could have been a downtime-causing issue until your MSP informs you of what they have just foiled--and even if the MSP isn’t able to completely mitigate the issue, as the old saying goes…
...Forewarned is Forearmed
Any MSP worth their salt isn’t going to just try and mitigate an issue without ensuring that your business isn’t prepared for what’s incoming to the best of their ability. In addition to collecting data from your systems, an RMM solution will alert you when issues arise and create a ticket for the issue to be seen to by an IT professional from your MSP. If they successfully mitigate the issue, productivity is preserved. If not, your MSP at least has a head start on identifying and resolving your issue and minimizing its effect on your business.
