Learning about the different types of IT services will help you determine what will work best for your unique business needs. At Next Hop Solutions, they know that each IT service offers its own specific benefits. That is why they offer a wide range of services that are designed to keep business networks in optimal running condition.

Different Types of IT Services

Some of the different types of IT services that can be used by businesses of all shapes and sizes include:

Managed IT Services

Many IT service providers that work with small businesses offer a range of managed IT services that are designed to service a company’s network on an ongoing basis at a regular rate. In most cases, managed IT services tend to be a more affordable option over time, as they can help prevent expensive problems from arising down the road.

By using 24/7 proactive monitoring and the latest technology, automated maintenance plans can also work to keep a company’s technology running and clutter free by removing harmful programs, unnecessary temporary files, and by updating system patches.

Data Backup

Data backup and recovery works to protect a business’ important information from being lost due to a physical failure, viruses, malware, accidental error, security breaches, ransomware, or natural disasters. An IT service provider will be able to handle backing up all of your company data, while also providing you with records of when the data was last backed up, when it will be backed up next, where it is being backed up to, and how often the backed up data is checked.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing covers any type of IT service that is delivered over the Internet or a dedicated cloud network, such as Office 365. All cloud computing services provide a secure network for accessing business information and applications, making it easier for employees to work remotely. Unlike some other types of IT services, cloud computing is designed to expand and grow with a business to meet future needs.


Since cybersecurity is a major concern for business of all shapes and sizes, cybersecurity services are designed to stay ahead of new cyberthreats by providing both internal and external security solutions for ensuring that your company’s data is secure. Cybersecurity services monitor network firewalls and watch for threats, including malicious programs, ransomware, and viruses.
