Wouldn’t it be great to have a fully-trained and certified staff of IT professionals sitting in the corner of your office, keeping your technology in line, secure and up-to-date? Unfortunately, small businesses often don’t have the budget required to staff an internal IT department filled with security analysts and network technicians. What’s the best way to handle your organisation’s IT?
Two words: Outsourced IT. By outsourcing your business’s technology management needs, you can effectively eliminate the burden placed on your organisation’s employees and help them be more productive.
First thing’s first, you need a network audit to be completed before you can identify how to improve the way you do business. A network audit is designed to identify flaws in your current infrastructure, ranging from simple traffic bottlenecks to major security flaws. It’s best that a third party like Atech handles this responsibility so that it can be assessed with a clear, unclouded view.
Remote Network Monitoring
Implementing preventative solutions will only get you so far. You need to actively monitor your business’ network so as to make sure that threats are identified as soon as possible. This is what remote network monitoring is for. An outsourced IT provider like Atech can monitor your network in real time, ensuring that any issues related to security or operations are quickly identified and resolved in a timely manner.
Security (Firewall, Antivirus, Spam Filter)
Security includes so many details that it can be difficult to prepare for every situation, especially if you’re not particularly familiar with cyber security and its threats. But there are various common threats that you really do have to worry about, including viruses, malware, ransomware, Trojans, spyware, and other attack programmes that can cause trouble. The best way to protect your business is through preventative measures like a firewall, antivirus, spam blocking, and content filtering. We can arm your business with these powerful solutions so that you never have to worry about online threats again.
At the end of the day, managed IT is meant to help you focus on what matters most: running your business. You can’t focus on keeping your operations moving forward with full force if you have to constantly worry about IT troubles. This is where Atech can help. We can provide all of the above services, plus many more. To learn about how managed IT can help your business, reach out to us here.
