Managed Services

Managed Services is an Information Technology (IT) term for providers who deliver and manage 24/7 network-based monitoring services and proactive support of applications, computers, firewalls, and servers, for enterprises, residences, or other service providers. Managed Services providers can host Websites, can be access providers, and can alert clients about system or power failures, which can be immediately corrected to reduce downtime and disaster recovery costs.
