The evolution of MSP started in the 1990s with the emergence of application service providers (ASPs) who helped pave the way for remote support for IT infrastructure. From the initial focus of remote monitoring and management of servers and networks, the scope of an MSP's services expanded to include mobile device management, managed security, remote firewall administration and security-as-a-service, and managed print services. Around 2005, Karl W. Palachuk, Amy Luby (Founder of Managed Service Provider Services Network acquired by High Street Technology Ventures), and Erick Simpson (Managed Services Provider University) were the first advocates and the pioneers of the managed services business model.[16][17]
A managed IT services provider (MSP) is most often information technology (IT) services provider that manages and assumes responsibility for providing a defined set of services to its clients either proactively or as the MSP (not the client) determines that services are needed.[26][27] Most MSPs bill an upfront setup or transition fee and an ongoing flat or near-fixed monthly fee, which benefits clients by providing them with predictable IT support costs. Sometimes, MSPs act as facilitators who manage and procure staffing services on behalf of the client. In such context, they use an online application called vendor management system (VMS) for transparency and efficiency. A managed service provider is also useful in creating disaster recovery plans, similar to a corporation's. Managed Service Providers tend to prove most useful to small businesses with a limited IT budget.[28]
What’s the cost of not having disaster recovery services? Technology failures happen and just like a natural disaster, you must have a continuity plan. Your data needs to be properly backed up—both on premise at your place of business and off-site in a cloud environment. Additionally, you’ll need to test backups regularly. Our team will help you architect the right backup solution, implement it properly with monitoring and notifications, and resolve issues as they occur.
If your company operates in the private sector, you know that how your data is stored and accessed is under great scrutiny at all times from various regulatory bodies. Regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, or EI3PA govern how companies use data, complete financial reports, and more. Staying compliant with these regulations can be very costly to your business.

For years, cybersecurity has largely been an enterprise issue. Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) were often the targets of opportunistic attacks, but both damages and frequency were low enough for them to not cause concern for business owners. While it can be argued that cybercriminals were simply going after larger and more lucrative targets, they also misunderstood how the SMB sector itself could be a valuable target. 
Managed services is the practice of outsourcing the responsibility for maintaining, and anticipating need for, a range of processes and functions in order to improve operations and cut expenses.[1][2] It is an alternative to the break/fix or on-demand outsourcing model where the service provider performs on-demand services and bills the customer only for the work done.[3][4]

Managed IT services allow businesses to delegate their IT operations to an expert third-party organization that specializes in handling these responsibilities. These third-party organizations, known as Managed Service Providers (MSPs), are responsible for the entirety or portions of a business’ IT systems, as agreed upon in a Service Level Agreement (SLA). IT equipment is typically procured by the client, and depending on the SLA, Managed Service Providers may provide round-the-clock monitoring, issue resolution and reporting, and more.
