October is National Cybersecurity Month, so let’s take a look at one tool that can help make your data and network more secure — Managed IT services. We all know there’s no “shortcut” to a strong data and network security policy, but there are some very simple solutions that can make a big difference without a lot of fuss. Managed IT services can be a huge help — 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 not always necessary. Instead, looking at your current habits and making small, smart changes that have a big impact. 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.
One big benefit is that Managed IT services make upgrades much easier. And your upgrades can be handled in a planned, 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.
