Benefits of Outsourcing Your IT Services

As a Long Island managed IT service provider, many in New York have turned to us for the best in IT support. Our IT team is knowledgeable and can help you with many different aspects in the IT world.

So take a look at some of the benefits of outsourcing your IT services. MSEDP can help you with all of your IT services and needs.

Reduces Costs

For many businesses, an in-house IT specialist is a luxury that you simply cannot afford. Or your in-house operation is too small to handle a growing company. A small, ill-equipped staff may be using outdated systems due to the inability of affording updates. And with a small staff, then you may suffer from periods of downtime, which leaves employees spending extra time trying to fix an issue rather than working. So the overall costs involved with this loss of productivity adds up.

But when you outsource your IT services, you are potentially reducing costs of your operation. As an experienced IT team, we can save you money by keeping your systems up to date with the latest technology. And with our disaster recovery systems, there is little to no downtime to slow productivity in the workspace. By outsourcing your IT services, you can save money by paying only for what you need. So your costs get rolled into one fixed monthly payment that makes it easier to budget. Whereas if you are on your own it can fluctuate depending on what happens, which makes it more difficult to save money.

It Services chartGet IT Support When You Need It

For many small businesses, they are over-worked as it is and short-staffed. Which leads to complications when issues arise, since only so many hands are on deck and you are stretched thin. But when you outsource your IT services, you get IT support when you need it. With MSEDP, we are just a call away and can help with any issue that arises. And you can rest assured that your IT systems are always being monitored to prevent issues. If operations are running smoothly, then you have the assurance of a team of IT experts at your disposal should you need them. This peace of mind comes without needing to hire additional staff.

Outsourcing Complements Your In-House Staff

If you do have a dedicated IT staff and/or manager that looks after your website, then outsourcing can act as a nice complement to your staff. There are times when a critical failure may stop operations in their track and your IT manager is out sick or on vacation and you need someone to help. This is when you can turn to someone like MSEDP and our dedicated IT support team. With an outsourced IT support team on your side, you can guarantee that there will always be someone available to take your call and provide solutions that complement your own internal IT staff. So you do not need to panic to get in touch with an employee on their day off. Allowing for a smoother day-to-day operations.

Know You Have The Right Skills For The Task

There are many different types of issues that arise in the world of IT, so having someone who can handle a given task is crucial. When you have a small staff, some important aspects may slip through the cracks. And hiring the right people can be difficult, as well as costly as you build a larger staff.

However, when you outsource your IT services, you can rest easy knowing that our staff has the right skills for a given task. With our years of experience and full staff, our IT support team has seen it all. Outsourcing your IT support takes away the time and stress of recruiting for an in-house role.

Keeps Your Focus on Running Your Business

If you and your employees are constantly handling IT issues and struggling with technology and problems, then it cuts into time running your business. For many small business owners, any downtime can lead to a huge cost. So you need to be spending time on what matters and that is running your business. And leave your IT services to the professionals. Outsourcing your IT services can give you a peace of mind that the issues are in good hands. No longer do you need to stress yourself out trying to fix a problem. MSEDP can effectively handle any issue that comes our way. Leaving you to focus on your business with us focusing on your IT services.

Increases Employee Productivity

Whenever a technical issues arises, it can lead to disruption of the workflow and a time-wasting financial loss. Even if you are not experiencing any technical issues, handling IT services on your own is a time-consuming aspect. So when you outsource your IT services, you open up more time for work and thus increase employee productivity. Modern IT support teams offer proactive services, which prevents issues from occurring whenever possible through firewalls and other cybersecurity measures. And when something does happen, it is our job to tackle the issue head on fix the issue.

Also, aside from dealing with technical problems freeing up your employees, when you utilize an outsourced IT team, like MSEDP, you also get the benefit of other technical advances, such as the use of Microsoft Teams. By using Microsoft Teams, you and your team become more productive due to the wonderful features that Teams applications offers. Helping to bring your workspace together and improve communication among coworkers.

Take Advantage Of Using The Latest in IT Technology

The IT landscape is constantly changing, with new advances in technology and services happening all the time. So it can be hard to stay up to date on all the new updates, products and applications available. And to even know if they are worth your time. Also, staying up to date on these aspects is expensive, so it is often not a cost-effective decision, despite the importance of being safe and secure.

However, when you outsource to a MSP, those updates and advances are at your disposal. As an IT company, it is our job to stay up to date with the latest in IT technology and advances. So you get the benefit of having access to those updates, all at a fraction of the cost that it would normally be on your own. And inform you on these updates, helping you and your business succeed.

Prevent Issues Before They Happen

If you are reactive when it comes to IT issues, then that can lead to more substantial loss and downtime than anticipated. "If it is not broken, don't fix it" is not a motto that applies to IT services, because things can be happening behind the scenes that you are unaware of and once they make it to the forefront then major complications can arise.

But when you effectively outsource your IT services, you can trust that your systems are being monitored 24/7 to help identify and fix potential issues before they impact your business. Which means that downtime is kept to a minimum. Keep your business and its systems safe and secure with MSEDP's IT services.

Access Advanced Services & Solutions

Everyday issues and critical failures are the first things that come to people's minds when they think about needing IT support and a trusted MSP. However, where outsourcing your IT services comes in handy most is with a long-term strategy. It is not just about fixing the obvious problems, though of course that is important, but it is about using this technology to your advantage on a daily basis and making your work life easier. Having a trusted IT team at your side allows you to effectively plan ahead for aspects like remote working and tech support, cyber security, and potential disasters.

So, with a managed service provider on your side, your options are not limited to reactive IT support. But rather long-term support and protection, as well as consultancy services that you and your business can benefit from on a daily basis. Get the help you need for your business to grow and succeed.

Streamlines Work and Saves Time

The number one benefit of utilizing Microsoft Teams is how it can act as a hub for your team, streamlining your work and saving everyone on staff valuable time. It brings together chat, meetings, calls, and all Office 365 apps. As well as allowing for the integration of third-party tools. By having everything in one place, you save time by not needing to jump around from platform to platform. And as a result the team works better together and becomes more productive.

One of the ways to do this is with streamlined file sharing, which benefits both employees who seek to collaborate, as well as IT companies that want to maintain data security. It enables users to create a shareable link for any file that gets stored in Teams and sets the right permissions. You can set who can see what by setting up the file share permissions, which is something we can help you with once you go down that route. But it is a great way to keep items safe and secure and being seen by the right people.

Simple & Easy-To-Manage Video Meetings

Setting up a video meeting can be tricky, especially for anyone who is not tech-savvy. But with Microsoft Teams, it is simple and easy to host video meetings and conferences. And their features make these meetings even more effective. One such feature is automatic noise suppression, which removes any potential background noise and makes everyone easier to hear. No more straining to hear someone speak on chat because of something happening behind them.

When joining a meeting, the launcher provides clear options on how to do so. All users are prompted to join the meeting online, with the downloaded Teams client, or join the native Teams client. And there is also an end-of-meeting notification that automatically alerts all participants when there are 5 minutes remaining in a meeting, so they know to start wrapping up. From beginning to end, teams makes meetings and conference calls easy!

Microsoft Teams

Seamless Collaboration with Microsoft Teams Apps

When you use Microsoft Teams, you can collaborate with your coworkers seamlessly by using many great features. Let's take a look at some of these wonderful features you get when using Teams.


Users can create and manage tags in order to reach the right people faster in Teams chats and channels. The tagging capability allows you to better organize and categorize people in Teams based on roles, projects, skills, location, or expertise. However you want to structure the employees, Teams is there to manage them. Saving you time and effort when getting work done.

Shareable Calendars

There is a shared calendar app that allows you to create and share a calendar with specific people or specific channels. So when you schedule a new meeting, a notification is posted in that channels' feed. Alerting only those who need to know the information. Another great way to organize the workplace and update people on a need-to-know basis. And no inundating people with scheduled meetings they are not even going to attend.


The Approvals feature in Teams allows you to create, share, and manage approvals directly from Teams. This includes client agreements, expense reports, and more. Anything that needs the approval of someone. You can send a new item for approval from a Teams chat or a channel conversation and the Approvals app tracks all previous and pending approval requests. Get the status, source, requesting party and all approvers with the Approvals app. No more searching random documents when you have Teams to organize all the important ones for you! And once there is an approval, it quickly updates all who need to know, so there is less downtime in waiting have needing to check it about a status update.

Offline Auto-Send

The Offline Auto-Send feature allows users to stay productive even without an internet connection. When a user is offline, their Teams messages are queued on their local device, which get automatically sent out once the device is back online. With this simple feature, you can answer emails and get other work done offline. And once you get the internet, those messages and emails automatically get sent out. Saving both time and the hassle of going back to click "send."

History Menu Functionality & Teams Displays

One of the greatest killers of productivity is switching between platforms or interfaces. However, with Teams, it packages all of Office 365 in one spot and through one interface. Which reduces the need to jump between apps, tasks, and projects.

The history menu for any Teams desktop client further builds on this functionality and enables all users to quickly return to places that they have recently visited. Which includes items such as activities, channels, conversations, tabs, files, apps, and anywhere else teams can go. This way you are not wasting time searching for something across platforms. With everything through Teams' History Menu, you can quickly backtrack without losing productivity and find exactly what you are looking for.

Makes Conversations & Connections More Meaningful

Teams is a great way of keeping a remote workforce in touch with one another. Despite being apart, workers still want some human connection. With Teams and its various features, it makes conversations and connections more meaningful. It does so with breakout rooms, live reactions and together mode.

Breakout rooms are perfect for larger workplaces that are looking for more focused operations. Hosts can set up smaller groups for brainstorming and meetings and hop into any of the rooms to check in. And at the end bring everyone back to the main group. Sometimes it is easier to discuss something in smaller groups first then bring the conversation to more people afterwards. Once ideas have been thought through.

Live reactions allow participants to better express themselves in meetings by choosing from four different options: like, love, applause, and laugh. Get clear communication through non-verbal chat with live reactions while in a live meeting. Instant feedback. And a great way to get a sense of how people are thinking without any interruptions.

Lastly, with together mode, everyone in the meeting can be in the same virtual space, such as the same meeting or conference room. Or you can make it more fun, like an outdoor theater. But no matter the setting you choose, it is still better than being in your own box. This feature allows people to feel like they are together when they are not, which can lead to more effective meetings. And at the very least bring a sense of camaraderie.

Keeps Everyone Informed With Bulletins & Milestones

You may have gotten this sense already, but the use of Microsoft Teams keeps everyone informed. Aside from all of the ways already discussed, Teams also utilizes bulletins and milestones in order to keep everyone informed about the goings-on of the workplace.

The bulletins app can be easily integrated within the Teams software and provides a space where managers can post memos, announcements, and other company news. Videos and images can be posted in this space too. And the app is optimized for mobile devices, so employees will never miss important updates or alerts.

And with the Milestones app, it is a central place to plan, track, and update the progress of work items and projects. All of the users can track tasks by owners and status, or view them in updates in the activity log. Get a full 360-degree view of a project from beginning to end. With it, you can easily check in on any project to make sure it is hitting deadline.

What are Bad Bots?

So, what are bad bots? Well, bad bots seemingly will interact with your applications in the same way a real legitimate user would. And boiled down to it, these bots are software applications that are designed to automate a lot of tedious online tasks. Google uses bots to help make their search engines useful. However, there are other shadier ways of using bots, like aggregators for travel websites to gather data before a user lands on their website.

This makes them very hard to detect and prevent, especially without the right protection. Bad bots enable high-speed abuse and attacks on websites, mobile apps, and APIs. They also allow bot operators, attackers, unsavory competitors, and scammers to perform many different malicious online acts. These malicious acts may include web scraping, competitive data mining, personal data harvesting, brute-force login, digital ad fraud, transaction fraud and spam to just name a few. But if a hacker can do it, that act becomes easier due to bad bots.

How Bots Positively & Negatively Make an Impact

Bots simply arose because they act quicker than a human could. So for many of these tasks they are used to optimize productivity. And not to mention that human error plays a factor too and these bots will not make those mistakes. Employing bots is common practice and has positive impacts, as well as negative ones.

Since bots essentially will "visit" a website, they then consume computing resources like bandwidth and server loading times. So, even if the bots are "good," they still inadvertently cause harm. Which leads to the more aggressive search engine bot or aggregator, which can take down a website that has limited resources. Good news for you, though, is that our IT team can configure your website to ensure it is running at optimum speeds at all times. However, that does not mean you can forget about these bad bots. All website owners should be aware of them and how they can both positively and negatively impact your website.

The Most Common Uses for Bad Bots

Beware of spam bots

As previously mentioned, there are many uses for bad bots. Here is a brief description of some of those uses.

  1. Web Scraping: This is when hackers steal your web content by crawling websites and then copying the entire site. So it can appear legitimate and trick visitors into thinking the site is safe.
  2. Price Scraping: These bots can also scrape product prices from e-commerce websites. Why is this bad? Well, then these prices can be used to undercut the competition and hurt their competitors.

Web Hosting Benefits

There are many reasons why professional web hosting is important and that is because it offers websites an array of great benefits that you can advantage of. Learn more about the benefits of web hosting from MSEDP.

Site Performance Improves

Your website's performance factors in a lot when it comes to ranking well on Google. When you turn to MSEDP for hosting, you will ensure your site's load speeds are fast. A slow loading site hurts your rankings. Slow loading speeds measure poorly with search algorithms, which then dictates how high or low your site ranks.

And not only does it effect your search results, but it also turns off potential customers. You only have a few seconds to grab their attention anyway. If that few seconds is lost due to the site not loading, then all is lost. It doesn't matter how nice your site is or how good your services are if customers can't even make it there.

So, having quick loading speeds ensures you are not dropping in the rankings and that the people who find your site quickly land there.

Dependable Technical Support

As your web hosting company, you will be getting dependable technical support. This ensures that your site is always running smoothly. And when a problem does emerge, you can count on us to fix it promptly. We have an experienced IT staff that can help you with any issue that comes up. Don't lose any potential customers or sales because of a down site. Or because the web hosting company doesn't is slow to respond.

We understand how frustrating it can be to go offline at any time. Which is why our support staff goes above and beyond for all of our web clients. Don't lose another minute by trusting a lesser IT team!

Professional Web Hosting

Domain-Associated Email Address

Having an email address that uses your domain name is a great way to look professional. When you turn to MSEDP for web hosting, we provide you with a branded email address that uses your domain name. So when you reach out to clients, you get that extra step of professionalism. And they know exactly who is reaching out, since your domain name is right there with your email address.

Improved Web Security

With better web hosting comes better security. And honestly, security is not something many website owners think about. It almost gets taken for granted. But the foundation of any website's security begins with the web hosting provider. At MSEDP, we understand its importance and work tirelessly in order to provide web hosting that is secure. And have multiple levels of security in place. So then you really do not need to worry about it.

In a nutshell, there is the actual physical datacenter, which gets protected. Then there is firewall protection for these services, which is an added layer of security. And then there are simply the security measures in place that protects your site from the other sites on the server. So when one site gets compromised, it stays with the one site and does not infiltrate any others.

Of course, having a website that is 100% secure is not possible. There are threats everywhere. Even little things, like login screens and spam software can become compromised. However, when you have MSEDP's web hosting, you have someone you can trust. We take all the necessary steps to make sure your website is as safe as possible. And we are always staying up with the trends and evolving with the new threats. Hopefully it never comes to anything dire (it rarely does), but at least if it does you know you have a team at your side with troubleshooting experience.

High Uptime

First let's define what "uptime" is. Your website's uptime is how often your site is actually online. Now, you're likely thinking, um, isn't my site online all the time? That is not always the case. Sites go offline for aspects such as server repairs, updates and routine maintenance. So your website is likely "online" 99.9% of the time.

With MSEDP, we offer high uptime for your website, while always taking the necessary precautions for updates and maintenance. When we do take your site down, we always aim for it to be during the off-hours, such as the middle of the night. This way you are unlikely to lose many web hits, customers or sales. Having a web hosting company that provides high uptime means your bottom line improves.


As you can see, a lot goes into professional web hosting. Some of these aspects are small, but even the small issues can lead to bigger issues. Which is why all aspects should be considered when selecting a web hosting company. At MSEDP, we are proud of our hosting capabilities and all of the features that we offer our clients. And we treat all of our web clients the same. So it does not matter how big your contract is, we want everything to be smooth. For everyone.

When you have a website, you cannot afford to overlook the importance of anti-virus protection. Having software to protect your website will in turn keep your company safe. And few things degrade trust with consumers than knowing using a website isn't safe.

Secure Protection From Malware & Viruses

The function of anti-virus protection is to detect viruses or malware that may harm your computer and alert you before the transmission happens. No matter how safe and cautious you may be, these issues arise and there is always a slim chance of becoming infected. And thus putting all of your files and data at risk.

But early detection prohibits the further transmission of viruses and malware. Most virus infiltration is self-replicating. So once they are in, they quickly spread. Our anti-virus protection will stop its ability to spread and keep your computers safe.

Viruses and malware are self-replicating, meaning they spread once they are allowed inside a victim’s computer. An antivirus prevents this from happening and also stops the virus’s ability to spread to other computers.

Block Spam and Ads

Nobody, and I mean nobody, likes pop-up ads and spam. They are a nuisance. And not only that, but spam and pop-up ads are also a common way to spread malware and viruses. So one wrong click can bring your whole system down and compromise your data.

Our anti-virus protection will block hidden malware and prompt you to disconnect or abort a download if anything seems suspicious. So you will always be aware of what you are downloading and the risks it presents. Which means there will not be a need to worry if you may be downloading data that will lead to a virus. Stop malware in its tracks!

Well, with our anti-virus protection there is no need to worry about hacking, since your files will be protected. We make sure all safeguards are in place so you can safely and securely keep your data.

Malware & Virus Scanning

When we can, we do not only scan for malware or viruses either. We also scan for possible drive errors than may eventually lead to the loss of data. And may cause your computer to slow down. So it is also just good practice to run these scans. When you utilize our anti-virus protection, we can schedule set times each day and/or week to run these scans and keep you safe.

Anti-Virus Protections Avoids PC Slowdowns

Computers with our anti-virus protection work faster, which means you will not lose any time to work for a slow PC. Any viruses or malware slowing down your computer are removed and frees up space and improves response time in the process. So in the long run, you are simply a more efficient worker since you are not experiencing any slowdown. Slow response time is such a headache and can lead to frustration. Keep your computer up to speed with our anti-virus protection!

Improved Firewall

However, with our anti-virus protection you get an improved firewall with added protection that works alongside your computer's firewall. So you will better safeguard your computer system and allow for less hacking and phishing. Stay up to date on the latest trends with our anti-virus software and rest easy knowing you are safe!

Of course, you still need to act smart and not intentionally go places that may threaten your system's safety. But out antivirus programs offer features such as blocking unsafe websites and warning you of possible threats.

This feature is great for those places that may only have one computer for the company's use. So YOU may know to be safe, but perhaps others are a little more careless. Avoid infection from those careless users.

And when you have safer internet surfing, it does not only mean protection from the usual fraudulent activities online. There may be other real threats we may not know about, but the software does! Hackers waiting in the wings for their next unprepared victim. But with our protection you will be ready. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

You can also read on for more on the wonderful benefits of using the cloud for your website!

What Exactly is Cloud Computing?

If you asked people 20 years ago what cloud computing was you’d get a fairly muted and/or confused response. However, it has gained popularity over time and is now commonplace. But what does it mean, exactly? Well, in its simplest terms, it is the storage of data at an offsite location. There has been an exponential increase in the use of data use over the years, so it is becoming more and more difficult to keep all vital information, programs, and systems up and running on in-house computer servers. The solution to this problem is, you guessed it, cloud computing!

Cloud ComputingCloud computing operates on similar principles as web-based email clients, since it allows users to access all of the features and files of the system all without having to keep all that data on their own computers. And you are likely using cloud-based services without even noticing it. Applications such as Gmail, Google Drive, Facebook and Instagram are all cloud-based. So on a personal level, the cloud is great. But it is even more valuable for businesses, since they can access large amounts of data over a secure, online network connection using the cloud.

As an example, employees can access customer information via cloud-based software and do so from the comfort of their smartphone or tablet at home. Or access it while traveling. And then turn around and quickly share any information with other authorized parties at the click of a finger.

However, not everybody is on-board yet with the cloud. Many still remain hesitant to jump on board. So if that’s you or someone you know, here are a few benefits of using cloud computing services for your business.

Cost Savings

This is routinely the number one consideration of any business. Of course it is important to weigh the price tag of any endeavor. However, when switching to a cloud-based system it is important to consider more than just the initial price. There needs to be a consideration of the return of investment. Once on the cloud, it is much easier to gain access to your company’s data, which will save you both time and money down the line. And when you choose MSEDP’s cloud services, you’ll only pay for the space you need. There are tiers of storage, so you will only be paying for what you use and nothing more. We want to make this as simple and affordable as possible.


Phishing ScamsThere is always a fear when placing your trust, and important information, elsewhere. Especially when that place is off-site. So it goes without saying that many businesses have security concerns when it comes to adopting a cloud-computing solution. The biggest concern we hear is that if you can remotely access your data, what is stopping a cybercriminal from doing the same?

A valid concern, but there are a lot of safety measures in place to protect cloud-based data. It is our full-time job to carefully monitor security, which is more than you can say about most in-house storage. We use some of the best software on the market to make sure all of the data in our cloud servers are safe and secure. And God forbid there is an issue, our backup and data recovery system is set in place to effectively neutralize the issue. So you can rest assured that your information is in safe hands when you turn to MSEDP’s cloud-based servers.


Every business only has a finite amount of time to focus between all of its responsibilities. So placing your trust in another company to handle your IT issues may be scary, but it also allows you the flexibility to focus on your business and help it grow. While the excellent IT team at MSEDP handles your data and storage.

So you have more flexibility overall when compared to hosting on a local server. And, if you need extra bandwidth, our cloud-based service can meet that demand instantly. This is typically not the case when locally storing data. If you need an upgrade, you likely need a larger server to hold that space. Which is added time and money. When you turn to MSEDP, you will have an improved freedom and flexibility that can make a significant difference to the efficiency of your business.


And last, but not least, is the overall sustainability of cloud servers. We are talking about sustainability within the environment. Companies need to do more to help keep the earth safe and find real sustainability solutions. A recycling bin in the break room is not enough. Hosting on the cloud is more environmentally friendly and results in less of a carbon footprint. So it is a more actionable solution to the environmental issues plaguing the world.

On the whole, cloud infrastructures support environmental pro-activity. This is due to the fact that it powers virtual services rather than physical products and hardware, which cuts down on paper waste and improves energy efficiency. The amount of paper offices still use in 2020 is alarming, but utilizing the cloud is a great way to limit the use of that resource.

And since cloud computing allows employees access from anywhere with an internet connection, it can reduce commuter-related emissions. Air pollution is a major issue not only in the United States, but around the world. So having people travel less means a healthier earth. In the end, cloud computing is not only safe and can save you money, it is a simple and easy way to help keep the environment safe!
