Managed IT Services

Reclaim Time by Outsourcing Your Most Critical Recurring IT Tasks

Successful businesses ensure that their IT is available 24/7 to customers, staff, and partners.  What’s the best way to do that?  Managed Services Plans.  Outsourcing your server, network, and workstation monitoring, and maintenance to an MSP that does this type of work every day—like PlanetMagpie.  

Our best-in-class monitoring software keeps an eye on every network element round the clock.  Any red flags or potential system failures, and our Managed Services Team is alerted to deploy a fix.  For companies with an internal IT department, we set up a hosted monitoring dashboard so they can keep an eye on their network too!

PlanetMagpie's Managed IT Services

With our Managed Service Plans, PlanetMagpie takes on the responsibility of maintaining any and all parts of your network. 

Our Managed Service plans are fully customizable and include a monthly onsite visit for firmware updates, server updates and reboots, and any hardware maintenance that needs to be performed onsite.  When we’re not onsite, our advanced network monitoring software gives us real-time updates on the status of your network and allows us to proactively handle issues before they become problems.

Our Managed Services Team is Microsoft-certified and includes Network Engineers, Systems Engineers, and Senior Support Engineers, so you know you’re getting the most experienced and credentialed experts working on your IT systems.  As a bonus, our Managed Services Team works onsite at PlanetMagpie, ensuring that your data is secure and support is easily accessible.

Think of PlanetMagpie Managed Services like a cyber-sentinel standing guard!

Top-of-Industry Network Monitoring Tools Used

A 24-Hour Eye on Everything Your Network Does

If you could put a guard dog inside your network...

One that watches for any signs of problems 24 hours a day...

Wouldn't you do it?

Of course!

In the IT world, we call such guard dogs "network monitoring tools." They're software platforms running outside your network (so nobody can hack them), monitoring everything inside the network.

Device status.

Security profiles.

Network connections going in and out.

Who brought donuts into the office today. (Maybe not that intense.)
