Backup as a Service (BaaS) protects the data, and typically allows for recovery of a file or server back to the customer's on-prem environment. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) protects the business, and allows for recovery of the entire IT environment (servers, storage, networking, apps, data) in the cloud.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) provides virtual desktops to end users, allowing them to use any device (laptop, tablet, phone, thin client). It differs from VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) in that the provider hosts and manages the desktop virtualization platform.
Email & Productivity is a managed SaaS solution providing hosted email, web & desktop applications (word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, etc.), file storage, and optionally voice. Popular solutions include Microsoft’s Office 365 & Microsoft 365, and Google’s G Suite.
Help Desk Services consist of outsourced help desk staffing, and do not typically include ticketing software. They can replace an internal help desk entirely, or provide augmentation during peak hours. Help Desk Services can reduce overhead, improve service, and increase productivity.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides virtual or physical servers on demand. The servers, storage, and network hardware are located in the provider's data center and abstracted from the customer.
Managed Services are generally remote, 24x7 services for IT infrastructure. They include proactive monitoring and alerting, patch management, engineering support, reporting and metrics, help desk for end users, and related maintenance and support. Managed Services support various IT environments, including on-premises, colocation, private cloud, and public cloud (AWS, Azure, Google, etc.).
SD-WAN is an evolutionary approach to the WAN that offers simplified management, quick turn-up, better application performance, improved resiliency, and cost savings when compared to traditional approaches. It can replace or work with MPLS, and is delivered directly, via carriers, or via managed service providers.
Security covers a broad range of services, from managed firewalls and IDPS to DDoS mitigation and SIEM. Leading solutions analyze behavior to detect ever-changing threats, communicate with multiple systems to provide a comprehensive view into the environment, and include: 24/7/365 Security Operations Center (SOC) support for event notification and remediation.
Telecom Expense Management (TEM) involves the analysis of telecom service orders, inventory, bills and disputes, in order to reduce telecom spend. Telecom Management includes a la carte outsourced services across a business's entire telecom lifecycle, from initial orders to ongoing management to contract terms. It can include auditing, inventory creation, project management, trouble ticket management, and escalation management.
During this global crisis, many companies are implementing work from home (WFH) policies to keep their employees safe. However, this puts a burden on both IT staff and end users, to maintain the levels of security and productivity they've grown accustomed to. This is where cloud and managed IT providers come into play. They can implement solutions rapidly and effectively so that businesses can bridge the IT gap and focus on what really matters.
