Network Support Services Across The United States
The network is the critical foundation of many businesses. When your network slows or goes down, there can be serious consequences for your business – a network outage can slow down or stop operations at every level, from point of sale to the C-suite (and everything in between). Your company can lose time, productivity, customers, and profits and incur recovery costs.
ITIC’s 2021 Hourly Cost of Downtime survey indicates a single hour of server downtime costs 91% of SMEs and large enterprises $300,000 or more, and among that 91%, 44% of companies report that the hourly outage costs in excess of $1 million for an hour of downtime, exclusive of any legal fees, fines or penalties. The only way to mitigate the cost of network downtime is to minimize the risk of unplanned outages for your organization, and the best way to do that is by outsourcing network support services.
At OnPar Technologies, we provide comprehensive and reliable network support services to protect your business, your customers, and your bottom line. We work with overextended organizations to provide the best combination of people, processes, and tools for keeping network environments secure and available. You’ll get all the benefits of a faster, reliable, more secure network—at a fraction of the expense of hiring an in-house team. The recurring monthly cost of our network support services makes your IT budget predictable and scalable as your company grows and evolves.
What is Network Support?
Network support focuses on maintaining an existing business network to ensure the networks, inter-connectivity of network infrastructure, and network access are fully managed and supported. As the workforce has expanded to different connectivity methods, different locations and has become more flexible to allow more office functions from anywhere, the definition of network support has changed from monitoring hardware status to including the end-to-end scope of the client’s network, including resources and end-users. This often involves third-party WAN solutions, multiple Internet and QOS providers, and productivity metrics and security services that span the Internet: areas lying well outside client-managed firewalls.
Network support services aim to ensure that your network is constantly running at peak performance. This involves managing your company switches and firewalls and the network functionality, user experience, network performance, network productivity, network health, and uptime of secured networks. Network support services can include remote monitoring, diagnostics, troubleshooting, scheduled updates of antivirus definitions, operating system upgrades, network connectivity, network security, application patches, and support for network devices.
Why is Network Support Vital in Today’s Cloud Environments?
Often, in today’s IT environment, critical applications and workforce tools needed for productivity are no longer present in the traditional office environment but are delivered via the cloud from disparate vendors. Even though your infrastructure might be hosted remotely in the cloud, active support is still a key concern for many companies.
When issues arise, you need comprehensive cloud support services that you can count on to ensure problems are resolved quickly and seamlessly. As your network support services provider, OnPar Technologies can help ensure your cloud IT environment runs as efficiently as possible. We can streamline the management of all your resources with visibility into networking and application performance to help ensure access to appropriate cloud resources, adequate performance of those resources for employees in the office or remotely, and the security of your cloud environment.
