Improving your Business Security with Colocation

With market research estimating a drastic increase in demand over the next few years, managed service providers are working very hard to make sure that their colocation services are up to par with market competitors, resulting in better security and features for businesses looking to outsource their IT infrastructure. With the anticipated increase in demand comes an increase of malware and cyber attacks. This has significantly influenced managed service providers to work on increasing the quality and robustness of their services. 

Colocation can improve a company’s security capabilities in several ways.

  1. Preventing physical access
    1. Gone are the days where companies hold their servers in their closets, causing an increased risk of security. MSP’s that offer colocation can focus more resources on security and provide solutions that can go a long way toward supporting data protection goals.
  2. Avoiding data loss
    1. With cyber attacks anticipated to significantly increase over the next coming years, data backup and prevention is more important than ever before. Colocation providers can offer redundant power and network systems, facilities built to withstand natural disasters and relatively easy access to backup resources.
  3. Network Security
    1. Colocation providers offer customers a secure network link between the third party data center and corporate headquarters. This adds a layer of protection from hackers and other threats. Colocation data centers also are physically off the premise of the business, making them well protected from physical wiretaps.

A company looking to grow and sustain success in the current and future state of the marketplace will undoubtedly come to a fork in the road with their IT infrastructure. It is likely that businesses will need to make decisions on whether or not they can keep their IT in house, and deal with the overhead that comes along with that, or if they will work with a managed service provider that will manage and provide consistent security and upkeep of their important data files. Protection against cyber attacks and outsiders will continue to rise as technology advances, forcing businesses  to fully submerge themselves into the digital age. So our advice to businesses? Invest in your IT, and hire a provider that knows what they are doing.
