What is an MSP and can it help improve your business?

What is a managed services provider (MSP)? One way to think of them is from the vantage point of a client of managed services. The MSP takes care of the setup, installation, and configuration of the client’s IT equipment. The MSP configures this equipment to best practices, provides ongoing patching and monitoring, consolidates configurations for best security perspective, fine-tunes settings for performance, and dynamically changes configurations to meet business needs.
