There’s no “shortcut” to a strong data and network security policy, but there are some simple solutions that can make a big difference. Managed IT services is one of those ways–and here’s why.
Helping You Make Great Choices
Managed IT Services is a great start to creating a secure computing environment because it’s all about making great choices. Sometimes we think we must change everything but that’s not required. Buying all new office equipment or scrapping your entire cybersecurity process in order to create a safer, more reliable environment for your data is just not always necessary. Instead, looking at your current habits and making small, smart changes that have a big impact. Something simple like never leaving unattended documents on the printer tray or including mobile devices in your security procedures. Little choices can make big differences!
Here are a few ways managed IT services can boost security in your workplace:
The cloud provides a powerful platform for communication and efficiency, it’s also an excellent resource when security is a consideration. With the services and tools in the cloud you can create data backups, deploy security process and configuration across multiple locations, and set up “virtual safety nets” that help with your business continuity and disaster recovery plan.
Addressing offline threats.
A large part of addressing computer and network threats is addressing threats that don’t even happen online. Instead, placing printers and other office equipment in the right places (away from prying eyes), protecting your on-site filing cabinets and encouraging good work related security habits can reduce threats to the organization significantly.
Upgrades done right.
Managed IT services make upgrades much easier and handled in a systemized way. Newer computers and equipment make it much easier to protect data, maintain efficiency standards and review usage reports. Most companies worry about breaking the bank with upgrades–so managed IT can help create a step-by-step plan to get safer, more efficient tech on a budget-friendly time-line.
