Proactive Managed IT Services, IT Consulting Services & Network Security For Small and Mid-sized Businesses
Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) make the mistake of thinking that it’s only the big guys who need dedicated IT services. While it might be tempting to think that with fewer than 100 computers in your network there’s not much that could go wrong, in fact nothing could be further from the truth.
Small and medium-sized businesses are actually more vulnerable to network threats than their larger counterparts. Partly this is due to the larger number of small companies, but partly it’s because too many SMBs fail to take the necessary precautions. Unfortunately, this can have dire consequences.
Network & Cyber Security Services for Small and Medium Business
Small businesses often have less than their larger counterparts, and hackers and other cyber criminals know how to exploit this fact. Over 70% of all cyber-attacks on businesses happen to those with fewer than 100 people on the payroll. What’s more, of those smaller companies who are victims of cybercrime, at least half go out of business within six months. This costs the economy tens of billions of dollars every year.
The best way to avoid being another statistic is to stop malicious activity against your company before it starts. Actively managed firewalls, password management, spam filtering, virus monitoring, server security, and employee monitoring are all effective, proactive steps that can be taken to prevent losing everything to cybercrime. ASG’s security services are a cost-effective way to keep all your company’s bases covered.
Break/Fix vs. Managed IT Services for Small & Mid-Sized Business
Considering the importance of your computer network and the seriousness of the consequences should it be threatened, the benefits of actively managed IT services should be clear. Many IT service companies offer so-called break/fix services, waiting until something goes wrong until they come in, diagnose, and repair the problem. Ultimately this takes more time and money than simply keeping the issue from happening in the first place.
Effective, managed IT services are a necessity for small businesses who lack the internal resources to have an in-house IT team. As both an insurance policy against the threats of cyber insecurity, and a way to maintain productivity by keeping your company’s tools working smoothly and consistently, managed services make every penny count.
The Best Small Business Backup Solution
Can you imagine what would happen to your business if it lost its data to cyber-attack, human error, natural disaster, or another sudden event? Credit card numbers, financial records, client information, sales leads, customer meta data, human resources information, the list goes on and on. If any of that information were either lost outright or stolen, the repercussions would be devastating.
Unlike many other threats to your computer network, loss of data isn’t something that can be dealt with after the fact; when something is gone, it’s gone for good. That’s why data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning are more important than ever to small and medium businesses. ASG offers all these services and more, giving you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that whatever happens, you’ll never lose everything.
