When a problem is detected your team of technical professionals will spring into action to troubleshoot and resolve all problem quickly. The included 24/7 NOC is also responsible for maintaining security updates and software patches.
Security Operations Center – Your security team sees and tracks everything. Data in, data out, data in between. As you know, hackers are everywhere, and in some cases, literally in the wires. Enterprise Security efforts have moved beyond simple antivirus software and anti-phishing training. As your security team, In The Cloud Tech only uses advanced, best-in-class security tools such as Security Information Event Management (SIEM), persistent threat detection, machine learning, artificial intelligence and global threat databases. Ransomware infections are a matter of WHEN, not IF they target your business data, and when it happens, an ounce of prevention is worth about 100 lbs. of cure.
MSP/IT Support Services - Frequently Asked Questions
Organizations with 50-500 end users and no dedicated IT support staff. If you have dedicated IT support staff, see our co-managed solutions.
Yes! If you are growing quickly or undergoing significant business changes, we may still be a good fit. Reach out and let’s talk about your needs.
No. Our services and solutions are designed around the concept of us proactively monitoring, maintaining, and securing your systems and data. This is an ongoing process that requires daily engagement and we do NOT do time and materials, hourly, or anything beyond ongoing management of technical services.
With years of MSP, Professional Services and Unified Communications experience, we mainly service small-to-medium sized businesses in the legal, manufacturing, healthcare, non-profit, and financial services industries. As a Tier 3 support MSP, we have extensive experience offering all inclusive, MSP/IT services at a reasonable, fixed price. Typically, our clients have anywhere from 20 to 400 end users that consist of employees using a desktop, laptop, and/or device(s) on a regular basis.
We are the MSP to the MSPs
What truly separates us from other MSPs, is our time spent in professional services and experience as a Tier 3 support company for other MSPs. This means other MSPs (typically Tier 1 and at times Tier 2) hire us when they need expert help or find issues/platforms/technologies they are not confident or comfortable working with. In The Cloud Tech is an innovative company that excels in providing advanced services that are not typical in the local IT services market. We clearly understand the goals of our clients to create a strategic partner for NOC management and trouble ticket management to free the client’s internal team so they can focus on strategic areas, not on technology issues.
IT MSPs assist companies with a wide range of services including network monitoring, backup and recovery, data storage, CRM, technical support among others. With these range of services, IT MSPs bring improved business continuity, enhanced IT posture, core business focus, enhanced security posture, technology expertise, improved efficiency, standardized processes, operational efficiency, improved responsiveness, among other business benefits.
The main benefits of managed IT services from a client perspective are peace of mind and lower overall technology costs. Peace of mind because they know that their data is monitored and secure and because they can call for IT support anytime they need it. The lower overall costs often surprise business leaders who don’t realize that data breaches, non-compliance, and business downtime are extremely costly. When it comes to managed IT services, an ounce of prevention is absolutely more cost-effective than a pound of cure.
There is no standardized pricing as such for managed IT services as it differs with the service offered and the duration of the service. Pricing in IT MSPs usually involves per use and per device pricing. Sometimes, services begin with low pricing and later involves high variable costs. Mid-range services are often considered best value for most businesses. And, high-end services involve higher costs and are more suitable to certain circumstances.
Ideally, to find the right MSP at the right price for your needs, your best bet is to find the rare MSP (like In The Cloud Tech) who offers all-inclusive, fixed-fee pricing with no hidden costs. When you find that combo from a company you trust, that’s a good time to make contact and see what sort of arrangement can be made.
Support, anti-virus, anti-malware, patching, and preventative maintenance lead the way as services commonly offered, where end user Help Desk support includes connectivity support to local and network printers, as well as compatibility and driver issues. We can also configure, install, and set up new devices for clients upon request. We can also make suggestions on purchasing hardware or software, as well as pricing recommendations for any technology needed.
There are advantages to having a technical resource in-house who has expertise with your line-of-business applications. With us, our expertise is your infrastructure, and we are effective because we have the staffing breadth and depth, tools, processes, standards, and focus very few MSPs can match. IT, professional services, and unified communications are our specialties. Our job is to deliver stable and reliable IT support that allows your entire organization – including your technical specialist(s) – to be more productive and effective. One person can’t possibly have all the skills necessary, which is why our services are team-based, so you get access to an entire team of experts, commonly for less than one full-time employee will cost.
When comparing managed IT services vs. break/fix, the word you want to keep in mind is “proactive.” Break/fix companies provide traditional IT services: you break your technology, they come and fix it for you. But with the rise of cybercrime these days, malicious hackers make their money by breaking your tech – and it’s not always possible to fix what they destroy.
Managed IT services proactively prevent breakage and even cyberattacks by keeping your systems up to date and secure around the clock. As one of the best MSPs out there, we will also get to work fixing your systems when you need them to, which means that managed IT services providers do a lot of the break/fix providers too.
Client onboarding begins once we receive a sales agreement from the client. Every new client is onboarded via a tailored plan that includes:
- Being assigned to an account manager
- Network assessment
- Installation of management, security, backup tools
- Setup and testing of backup and cleanup of the physical environment
- Configuration of client equipment to align with In The Cloud Tech standards and best practices (addressing any concerns or recommendations from the network assessment)
- Documentation of all aspects of the client environment in our documentation system (includes photos of the environment)

eBook: Predicting Unified Collaboration and Communication as an MSP
Throughout the pandemic era of 2020, communication and collaboration applications saw unparalleled growth as companies rushed to provide for remote workers. This unified communications eBook was developed to address these very issues and includes hybrid workplace changes. As these developmental stages took place, the timing coincided with the already growing acceptance and use of the cloud. Notions of Unified Communications (UC), especially VoIP and traditional telephony, began to be examined regarding efficiency, usefulness, and providing the same user experience across multiple channels.
We examine this developing trend of porting communications and user functions to the cloud and ask will it as a service become the standard for years to come? Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS – Download here) is picking up speed and seeing great returns on investment, especially when combined with support and other service stack offerings. This eBook begins by examining the current state of technology for remote/hybrid workers.
