Almost all companies require some type of IT support to monitor and handle their computer and networking services. Many companies are turning to managed service providers rather than staffing an entire in-house IT team.
For some, outsourcing simply fills a void in their workforce, but many small businesses find it better to trust the company than hire internal staff to handle their IT needs for the following reasons.
For most businesses, it is more cost-effective to hire a specialized IT managed services provider to meet their computing and networking needs.

Managed service providers typically have several employees who are experts in one or more IT areas, so you can access more expertise without hiring multiple employees or finding the perfect offer for each.
The only job of a managed service provider is to build and protect the network for the enterprise. Therefore, you will get better security than you can do on your own.
Depending on the situation, you may have a secure external backup server so you don't lose any documents. You also have constant network monitoring to identify potential threats and hacks and mitigate potential damage.
The final reason many companies turn to managed service providers to at least augment their existing IT workforce is to reduce downtime. Your network will definitely stop at some point. This can be a disaster that can result in lost hours of work, impacting your bottom line.
