How Do I Know Which Services I Need?
When choosing managed IT security services, it is hard to determine the solutions and services that will meet your needs and one size does not fit all. Your company needs tailor-made solutions.
Here are a few questions to help you determine the solutions and services you need:
Are your current services integrated throughout your organisation?
An IT setup that is integrated and easy to use, even for those with a moderate understanding of the technical aspects of IT, provides you with a number of benefits. These benefits include increased productivity, error minimisation and a decrease in the number of problems. Ask yourself: Are my current services as integrated as they could be – if they are integrated at all? If you answered ‘no’ to this question, you need to rectify the situation as soon as possible. The best way to achieve this is through a risk-management strategy and a tailor-made program that fits with your existing infrastructure. You need an understanding of important areas such as the design of your IT infrastructure, cloud computing and cyber security solutions.
The successful implementation of these services will result in the following benefits:
- Optimised surveillance.
- Improved communication.
- Enhanced employee workflows.
Are You Able to Remotely Access Your Network Securely?
One of the most vulnerable points of a business network is accessing it from a mobile device. Smartphones, laptops and tablets are susceptible to outside access and exploitation. A breach can wreak havoc on your valuable business data. Remote business network access is of paramount importance to your business. If you are unsure of the security of your remote access, you need to assess the risks and undertake comprehensive testing. As experts in the field of managed IT security, we understand these risks and the likelihood of their occurrence. For example, wireless access points are a prime area of vulnerability for most companies. We can ensure that your wireless access points are secured, in both hardware and software. Another example is that if an employee’s mobile device is stolen; and the device is connected to your network; it can cause damage to your organisation.
Is your Firewall Performing at its Best while Protecting your Servers, Networks and Endpoints?
The best way to prevent disaster is to ensure that threats do not ‘get past the front gate’. A firewall has a similar purpose to the moats and gates of a castle. As a firewall is one of the most important components in your fight against outside risk, it is important to determine if your firewall offers you the best protection possible. Given how rapidly software and hardware becomes obsolete, while the capabilities of hackers and phishers is increasing, it is necessary to evaluate new options as they become available. Essential Tech has the up-to-date knowledge to identify the solutions offering the most comprehensive benefits and to keep abreast with the best choices.
