MSP platform

In an attempt to focus thoroughly on improving business health and boosting work efficiency, organizations often outsource network management tasks to managed service providers (MSPs). This way, they can eliminate dealing with network problems and troubleshooting themselves, paving the way for the growth of the MSP sector. By relying on MSP services, business owners can save on costs that can occur due to network mishaps, troubleshooting, non-compliance, and more.

The managed services market is anticipated to reach $354.8 billion in five years. Though this is great news for all the service providers out there, it also conveys that MSPs should be aware of how the market runs and stay competitive to sustain their business. Using a suitable multi-client network management platform can be of great help for MSPs.

Challenges faced by service providers without an MSP platform for network management

A best MSP platform for network monitoring and management helps MSPs to handle multiple client networks and keep them chaos-free, regardless of the client count and each client's network size. To fully utilize such a tool, it's important to understand the hurdles service providers generally face in the management process. Some of the challenges are:

  • MSPs have to meet a lot of client requests, resolve a ton of network issues, and also forecast network downtime. One task, like resolving client A's network device malfunction, can get tangled up easily with another task, such as mending client B's network device issue. This can cause serious damage to the MSP's brand name.
  • MSPs can troubleshoot potential issues in clients' networks before they intensify, and ensure clients' businesses operate without any problems. But, resolving issues manually throughout the day can be tiresome, and sometimes MSPs overlook some critical issues affecting the health of the networks they manage.
  • Missing one or two network mishaps not only opens the gate for more network issues and causes outages, but it can make MSPs look bad and increase mean time to repair (MTTR).
  • Getting to know the network needs and adjusting the threshold values for critical devices constantly can help MSPs ensure their clients' networks are performing optimally. However, controlling the threshold values of each device manually can be backbreaking, prone to errors, and take up loads of time.
  • Juggling between multiple client networks is a part of a service provider's job. However, too much switching of tools and tabs can be overwhelming and consume a lot of time and energy, making it harder to granularly grasp what is going on in each and every client network device.
  • Network admins making configuration changes to client network devices countless times in multiple networks can sometimes lead to breaches in the multiclient environment. In addition, not complying with the latest industry standards can also make a multiclient environment vulnerable.
  • Intruders spotting and cashing in on firmware vulnerabilities which are yet to be fixed in your clients' networks can be destructive to the network, and affect a client's business and your brand reputation.
