By 2025, according to InsiderPro, 60-to-80 percent of workers in a typical organization will be millennials. These digital natives will primarily collaborate by text, video chat, video conferencing or connect via a plethora of digital channels rather than in person.
Workers today expect to be empowered with anytime, anyplace communications without the inconvenience of slow network performance or worse, downtime. Whether on the road, working from home or across branch locations, worker satisfaction and productivity hinge on a robust communications network that can deliver fast connection speeds, high bandwidth availability and secure connections.
Magna5’s modernization services enable organizations to integrate cloud-based technologies across branch locations to unlock unprecedented efficiency for delivering on-demand functionality for a digital workforce.
Let’s look at four essential managed IT services that should be a part of your IT mix to modernize your network environment. They will be truly transformational in providing capabilities to meet today’s digital business environment.
Reliable Uptime and Network Performance
In an “always on” digital world, the urgent need for reliable uptime and on-demand network performance never ceases. A network monitoring and management solution can proactively improve responsiveness and service delivery. Magna5 uses advanced portals providing centralized visibility into critical IT components. This allows for real-time monitoring and alerting for complete control over the health of your network performance. Our engineers working out of Magna5’s U.S.-based Operations Center will oversee granular administration over cloud applications, network devices, servers and security tools to ensure reliable uptime and high network availability. You can avoid downtime before it happens by having your network fully monitored and managed by a team of experts 24/7/365.
Ensure High Bandwidth Availability with Seamless Failover
Nobody wants to get caught in the crosshairs when the CEO’s monthly videoconference with branch office employees drops off mid-sentence. With managed software-defined networking using SD-WAN, Magna5 can create a resilient network that provides high bandwidth availability with better voice quality and application performance … all centrally monitored and managed. Whether using single or multiple connections, our SD-WAN solution is essential for correcting struggling traffic using real-time traffic orchestration that re-routes traffic to a better connection without a session drop. With so much communications today using video conferencing, video voice calls and bandwidth-intense collaboration tools, reliable connectivity with guaranteed failover protection can go a long way in your modernization journey.
Provide Anywhere Unified Connectivity – from the Road, from Home or Branch Offices
Workers today expect flexibility in where, when and how they work, while also choosing the best applications and services to accomplish their jobs and manage productivity. Unified communications is widely accepted as a quick way to modernize and unify multiple office communications to deliver what matters to busy organizations … high voice and data availability, digital collaboration across locations, data sharing and reliable failover to ensure uptime and network performance. Managed unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) lets you affordably interconnect branch locations and remote workers to boost productivity using collaboration tools that integrate multi-channel devices with desktop functions.
Secure Your Environment from Cyber Threats and Data Breaches
Since cybercriminals never sleep, neither should preventive countermeasures take a break before they strike. Managed security gives you access to certified security experts who proactively watch your network and endpoints for threats to protect sensitive data and comply with industry and governmental regulations. They will identify patterns of events indicating a possible threat, determine the risk and respond quickly to minimize the impact of a security breach. Magna5’s U.S.-based Operations Center is staffed with certified security engineers providing 24/7/365 monitoring, validation and swift response to real-time threats or IT vulnerabilities. Full visibility into network environments allows us to secure all internal and external endpoints, including on-premises, the cloud, remote users and mobile devices.
Managed IT services can accelerate an organization’s path to modernization with speed, scale and cost advantages. Magna5 has done the legwork by developing a powerful cross-portfolio of managed IT and cybersecurity services that can help organizations accommodate today’s digital devices and cloud applications … now and into the future.
