What we do
Internet threats to businesses are increasing in size and scope. International banks with entire information technology (IT) departments are getting hacked, resulting in huge financial losses and damage to their reputation. Electric companies are experiencing service interruptions because their grids are being attacked. Ransomware is still growing as are the number of encryption codes created to extort money from businesses.
Small and Medium Businesses
Most small and medium businesses do not have the luxury of IT departments. Some do not even have an IT staff person. They are the most vulnerable when it comes to threats. Large corporations may mean a bigger payoff for criminals, but small businesses are easier to hack.
Some companies, such as it total care inc., specialize in helping small and medium businesses with internet issues. Threat assessments are offered as are assessments of current technology. From that point, a computer consultant can recommend changes, develop custom solutions to unique business problems, and help owners understand the potential risks to the files and devices.
Flat rate IT service plans are available to provide managed network security and managed IT services. That means the IT company handles those tasks for the business. Updates, monitoring systems, detecting threats before they affect the business, and fixing any internet problems are completed off-site. Business owners and employees can focus all their time and attention to their work without worrying about outside threats.
Disaster Recovery Planning
This component of internet security is often lacking in small businesses. Files and work may be backed up on one exterior device, but that is not always enough. If files are backed up to a separate hard drive, they may still be compromised as a result of an internet attack. It is now recommended that information be backed up on two separate devices.
Switching to cloud computing can save small businesses money. Working and storing information in the cloud eliminates the need to invest in servers and equipment. Updates occur automatically, and the latest software can be utilized via subscription instead of purchasing it and paying licensing fees each year. It is opportunities and services of this nature that make outsourcing IT safer and more affordable for small business owners.
