Cybersecurity Through Managed IT

Posted by Curtis Flax on Jul 11, 2018 4:06:46 PM

I’ve come to a sobering conclusion. As an IT Professional focused on protecting the networks of my own employer, as well as our clients, I’ve seen endless demonstrations of how networks can be infiltrated and damaged. The truth is, there is no way to ensure your network is completely safe. No person, no software, no service, can guarantee that.

Of course, we still want to maintain a preventative strategy with firewalls, anti-virus and the most recent evolution of best practices.  However, we can’t rest on those laurels. We need to adjust more of the focus to minimizing the impact of an inevitable attack, in terms of downtime, data loss, and disruption of service for employees and customers. All of these things translate into dollars, especially when you factor in the long-term impact of your reputation in handling of these issues.

Critical to your recovery efforts are having procedures in place with standard protocols and a well-trained team that knows your business and can restore it quickly. A managed service can give you the upper hand in a crisis. An expert partner makes a difference.

Managed IT as Security

Proven Protocols: People who deal with crisis for a living can attest to the importance of having standard procedures that you have practiced to the point of muscle memory. You don’t have to waste time figuring out what needs to be done, because it’s already been decided. Managed IT Service provides the standards by which your IT is deployed, monitored and maintained, thus providing the proven protocols in an emergency.

Knowing Your Business: Do you know where all the recovery disks are for your business applications? What about passwords, user settings, and security rules? Managed IT Service keeps track of all of this. Knowing the network, they can get to work right away.

Peace of Mind: Having a network that is patched and monitored means issues can be detected early, often before you even notice anything yourself. Managed IT Service can be responsible for this worry.
