When it comes to protecting your business, you must remain vigilant. However, many businesses lack the resources and budget for a robust in-house IT staff. In that case, partnering with a service provider on managed IT services allows you to protect your data without the stress of maintaining your systems.
What Managed IT Can Teach You
We know it is nearly impossible to keep up with all of the latest technology, whether that be the newest software download or the trendiest hacker attack. The good news for you is that with managed IT services we keep track of all of your IT concerns and help protect your business against the latest threats, such as “ransomware.”
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that is designed to block user access to a computer system or network until a ransom or sum of money is paid. It is essentially a way that hackers hold your systems hostage until they get paid.
Protection Against the Latest Threats
Ransomware has reached peak popularity and does not appear to be going away anytime soon. In fact, it was named one of the top business security threats of 2019. The bad news continues when you consider that this is an issue that affects small-to-medium-sized businesses nearly as much as large corporations. Stats from Small Business Trends highlight that 43 percent of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses. Also, depending on the extent of the attack and the amount of damage done, many of those companies will never recover. With proper IT protections in place, your business can rest easy knowing you are covered.
Filling in the Gaps
IT and cybersecurity staffing continue to be a challenge for many businesses, and many business owners worry that the hiring gap will get worse. Managed IT services can help bridge that gap by providing you with professional network security services, plus data monitoring and backup, proactive technology management, virtual CIO, and more.
Partnering with a top-of-the-line managed IT providers take the pressure off of your in-house staff to safeguard your data and documents while keeping your protected against hackers and cyberthreats.
