Managed IT Services Provider Sacramento FAQ
Essentially, it’s an outsourced IT department. Instead of paying out-of-pocket every time something goes wrong, a managed IT services provider monitors your system and responds to issues as they arise.
Not only does a managed IT services plan provide a comprehensive IT solution that mitigates the risks of internal and external threats, but the flat monthly fees also make it easier for businesses to budget for IT-related costs.
Coverage varies by MSP, but most managed IT plans include server and network monitoring, system administration, user and device administration, security patching, data protection and managed workstations. Depending on the plan, it may also cover hardware issues, service issues, software upgrades, hardware installations, on–site support and more.
Most managed IT services plans fall into one of two buckets: partially managed or fully managed. Think of it as the difference between an a la carte menu and an all-you-can-eat buffet. A managed security service provider (MSSP) like Capital Network Solutions in Sacramento may also offer additional services like advanced threat protection and dark web scans.
Prices vary, but the average all-you-can-eat managed IT services plan costs less than $30,000 a year. For that money, you get a fully staffed and trained IT department.
Even for businesses on a fully managed IT services plan, there may be additional costs for things like new hardware and software installations, personal computing system repairs, installation of network-enabled printers or new servers and networking devices, advanced endpoint and network security, annual security audits and compliance-related services.
Full-time IT professionals usually make $40,000 to $60,000 per year, with an additional 10 percent of their salary going toward payroll taxes and benefits. By contrast, the average all-you-can-eat managed IT services plan costs less than $30,000 a year.

Although big enough to get targeted in cyberattacks, most small businesses lack the resources to staff their own IT departments. However, putting your business environment in the hands of a single employee with limited skills and extensive legacy knowledge also presents a dicey situation. MSPs afford you a highly skilled IT department for less than the cost of hiring one in-house IT employee.
