Your IT department is an integral part of your business, especially when it comes to safeguarding the productivity of your business. When something goes wrong in your network, and you do not know about it or your IT department, the results could be catastrophic for your business, your clients, and specially your bottom line.
According to Gartner, the average cost of IT downtime is $5,600 per minute. Because there are so many differences in how businesses operate, downtime, at the low end, can be as much as $140,000 per hour, $300,000 per hour on average, and as much as $540,000 per hour at the higher end.
For your IT department to gain greater network visibility in-house is going to require an investment on new hires, implementing extensive training sessions, hiring consultants, and a significant investment in hardware or software. Before getting overwhelmed by the idea of new hires and making an investment in hardware/software, consider the option of outsourcing your monitoring to highly specialized engineers.
The size of your business or the industry you’re in, outsourcing your monitoring services to a dedicated NOC partner is a wise investment. By having a dedicated team of engineers with specialized in cybersecurity means that you’re always going to have a set of eyes watching over your IT infrastructure giving you a peace of mind.
This enablement will give your IT department more time to concentrate on the priorities of growing your business without the time-consuming tasks of monitoring and mitigating threats. With your NOC partner, your systems will be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year who will work alongside your IT department.
