As business pushes the limits of IT availability, productivity and efficiency, the importance of reliable IT operations continues to be apparent. Small- and medium-sized organizations rely on their IT environments, especially those of cloud-based applications and servers, to eliminate inefficient processes and reduce operational expenses, but the demand for high availability has made downtime much more catastrophic and costly. Unfortunately, the most advanced systems are still subject to downtime and performance concerns that can decrease the quality of end-user experience.

Many times, business owners will seek out support after a downtime disaster occurs, but this is a reactive approach to managing your IT. How much downtime can your organization afford? Downtime can be extremely costly and cause your organization to miss deadlines, lose business opportunities and lower employee morale. According to Dynamic Business Technologies, hardware failure is the number one reason of data loss and down time. Our solution? IT Monitoring and Management. Proactive IT monitoring and management can eliminate downtime fears and unplanned mishaps to maximize up-times, productivity and bottom line.

Increase functionality and performance with Magna5 IT Monitoring and Management

Ensuring that your network and servers stay in working order at all times is not an easy task for the budget and staff constrained organization though – it requires 24/7/365 support, technology with rich functionality, and a staff of certified professionals that can detect anomalies from false positives. Many organizations just simply don’t have the IT staff to accommodate the needs of a full-blown monitoring and management platform; while others are trying to handle in-house.  A common problem of in-house monitoring is the lack of around-the-clock functionality, as this is restricted to only checking and resolving issues during regular business hours. If a network or server issue arises during off-hours, you could walk into work the next day with a mess to resolve at the cost of your company’s productivity.

There will never be enough stress on how important it is to constantly stay on top of security patches and maintain standardized security settings on all workloads. To maintain high security and compliance, organizations need features that pay close attention to the network and everything that is going on within the network. Many solutions can offer real-time network security management to ensure your organization stays informed, secure, and protected from the latest malicious attacks.

Lower expenses by improving asset utilization

IoT enabled endpoints are in a constant rise and accounts for more than half of network traffic compared to wired. It’s important to know what is connecting to your network and whether their infrastructure is equipped to handle major fluctuations. A comprehensive tool will provide inventory of devices for analyzing long term trends and facilitating optimum use of available assets.
