Managed IT for Small Business—What Is It, and How Does it Work?

Small businesses in Orange County face an interesting dilemma. They need reliable connectivity and cybersecurity just as much as larger companies, but they don’t have the budget to hire a staff of IT professionals to keep systems up and running. On the other hand, using an IT company only on an as-needed basis is risky because any delayed response can result in costly down time and lost revenue. For these businesses, managed IT can be a welcome middle ground between hiring full-time staff and on-demand IT services. What, exactly, is managed IT for small businesses, and how does it work in the real world?

For a fixed monthly fee, the company monitors your systems, maintains and updates your equipment, provides technical support and addresses other issues onsite as needed. This arrangement gives you essentially the same level of IT coverage enjoyed by larger companies at a fraction of the cost.
