"CyberFire was brought in to assist with breaking into all platforms and regaining control of network devices, Wi-Fi, M365, and other services. We're now an MRC client where the team at CyberFire has been reducing our IT budget, moving towards the cloud, and providing flexibility for our staff."
The journey of owning a business in today's digital landscape can feel like walking through a minefield. Costs are constantly climbing. The intricate web of tech requirements, from security protocols to software updates, is enough to keep anyone up at night.
Plus, the added pressure of a looming recession makes every decision critical. And if you've been considering an in-house IT department, the costs can be staggering. On average, hiring an IT professional can run you upwards of $85,000 annually. And that's just for one!
Factor in training, benefits, tools, and software, and the numbers keep climbing. On top of these costs, managing a team, ensuring they're up-to-date with the latest technologies, and handling inevitable turnover is challenging. Let’s paint a clearer picture, shall we?
The median salary for an IT professional in the U.S. is approximately $88,000 as of 2021. Add to that benefits (which can amount to 30% of the base salary, or $26,400), equipment, and overhead costs and you’re already well over $100,000 for just one professional.For a team of 5, you’re already $500,000 in.
By contrast, the average monthly fee for managed IT services can range from $100 to $250 per user. For a company with 50 employees, even at the higher end, you're looking at an annual cost of $150,000 – and that covers an entire team of IT experts and their tools
Hiring an IT professional means you're getting the skills of that one individual. To cover a broad range of IT needs – from networking to cybersecurity to software support – would require hiring multiple specialists.
An outsourced IT team brings diverse expertise to the table. You’re gaining access to a variety of specialists for the price of one in-house employee.
Technology is ever-evolving. Keeping an in-house team updated requires continuous investment in training and certifications, which is both time-consuming and expensive.
IT firms inherently stay abreast of the latest trends, technologies, and threats, as their business model depends on it. Their staff is routinely trained, often without additional costs to their clients.
In-house IT teams often get bogged down with daily operational tasks, leaving little time for strategic initiatives or innovations.
By leveraging an external team for routine and critical IT tasks, businesses can focus on strategy and growth, knowing their IT infrastructure is in expert hands.
An in-house team has limited bandwidth and may not be available 24/7, especially during holidays or off-hours.
Many managed IT service providers offer 24/7 support, ensuring immediate response to emergencies anytime.
Unexpected IT challenges can lead to unforeseen costs, making budgeting unpredictable.
With managed services, businesses typically pay a fixed monthly fee, making IT costs predictable and more manageable.
