Can You Afford NOT to Outsource Your IT Services?

Can You Afford NOT to Outsource Your IT Services?

Do you know the true cost of employing your own in-house IT support?  Even after hiring dedicated IT personnel, many companies still lack the full suite of computer support hardware, software and services needed to completely manage and protect their valuable company data and intellectual property.  Many of the necessary functions and products do not come included with the hiring of an IT administrator. Rather, they are additional monthly and yearly costs. The following tables illustrate the typical requirements that a company needs in monthly expenditures to maintain a Class A secured infrastructure environment.  These items include not only the cost of the personnel, but also a baseline set of IT software and network tools.
