"Prevention is always better than cure." This is exactly what you get in a proactive IT support model — your IT support team or IT provider prevents potential technical issues before they become a problem. But how does this compare to the more traditional reactive IT support approach?
Small to midsize businesses are creating a competitive advantage in today’s highly competitive market place by increasing productivity with innovative technology solutions. However, the increased complexity of IT environments and the need for big data analytics makes it necessary for full IT support teams. Outsourcing some or all of your IT support duties gives small to midsize businesses a similar level of IT security and support as larger organizations with full in-house IT teams.
Traditionally most businesses use outsourced IT companies when faced with IT challenges or issues that can’t be fixed easily in-house. This type of support is known as reactive support. To easily understand the concept of reactive support, let’s compare this type of IT support to car maintenance. When you wait for your brakes to ware off before you take your car auto repair shop to get it fixed that’s reactive. You’ve waited for a problem to occur before you take action to fix it.
The main disadvantage with reactive support is that, there is no visibility into the entire IT infrastructure of your business. And to top it all, your outsourced IT team has do a lot of digging around to get to the root of the problem. This is a time consuming process that creates room for potential human error and even insoluble mystery.
Proactive support is based on prevention. To go back to the car repair example, instead of waiting for a car to break down, you bring it in for regular service, get the brakes and oil checked. That way, you are at far lower risk for breakdowns. With proactive IT support, IT support teams perform regular maintenance and constant monitoring. IT security vulnerabilities, and potential server crushes can be prevented before they occur. Proactive IT support gives your IT support professional ability to gain full visibility into your current IT infrastructure including, your entire environment, network, and workstations.
Proactive IT support gives your business the insights needed for effective planning and analysis to improve your current IT processes. With IT health dashboards and monthly reporting, IT managed services companies providing proactive IT support can help you gain full visibility into your current IT system. Easily answer core IT business questions such as:
Which of my workstation applications are coming up for license renewal?
What is the overall security level of our current system?
Are we running low on disk space?
When do we need to plan for a server replacement?
Employing proactive IT support practices helps you plan and budget your IT spends better than you can in a reactive model. With proactive support usually offered in a managed IT services model, you have a fixed monthly fixed fee for IT services which typically incudes monitoring and continuous health checks. This allows for effective planning, budgeting and resource allocation to other areas of your business that needs it the most.
In the earlier example, just like fixing your car when it breaks down can be more expensive than just getting the oil changed regularly. When you operate using a reactive approach to IT support, you run the risk of having to spend more to fix something that is "broken."
In unfortunate events such as, fire, flood or cyber attack, a proactive system is far better equipped than a reactive system to respond instantly with disaster recovery procedures. This is because, most managed IT support plans are bundled in with remote backup and disaster recovery plans to ensure that your critical business data is safe even with partial or total data loss.
As always, the main driver for any business decision is usually centered on cost savings, efficiency and productivity. A proactive approach saves valuable business dollars in the long run. You don’t get catastrophic issues that disable the workforce for hours while IT goes looking for a needle in a haystack. And rather than wait until everything falls apart, proactive IT professionals ensure that the system is running smoothly, 24 hours a day.
Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
There’s been a lot of talk about Cybersecurity lately, from email hacks at the Pentagon to breaches at insurance carrier databases. But big corporations and the government aren’t only at risk. Small and mid-sized businesses also must make data and network protection a top priority. If you still haven’t developed a plan to safeguard your company’s data contact us to get one.
While offering WIFI for your guests or users personal devices is a nice thing to do, it could open the door for bad actors. These shared networks are hotspots for hacking. If you accept, transmit or store any customer data, over this same network, you could be held liable for any data incident.
RDP, Remote Desktop Protocol is a great service that allows people to work remotely and efficiently but are open to attackers who can just brute force their way in. To protect this, we setup a VPN with certificates to allow easy, safe and secure passwordless network logins.
Our Managed Networks ensure you can have a safe business systems network and a network that is safe for your users and guests to connect to.
Phishing scams aim to trick staff into handing over data -- normally usernames and passwords -- by posing as legitimate email. It's a technique hackers use because it continues to be such an effective method.
Plugging in a USB sticks you found lying around on the street outside your office could lead to a security breach. A BlackHat Group dropped nearly 300 USB sticks, 98% were picked up and reported back, of those picked up, 45% had files opened on the drive.
Ransomware encrypts your files. The attacker then demands a ransom from you to restore access to your data upon payment. If you pay it, you could find yourself in hotwater with the US Government. This type of attack has become one of the biggest threats in Cybersecurity.
Our Cybersecurity training and audits will ensure that your users are practicing good Cybersecurity habits and Managed Data ensures in the event of a ransomware attack, we can quickly restore data.
When software updates become available, vendors usually put them on their websites for users to download. Install updates as soon as possible to protect your computer, phone, or other digital device against attackers who would take advantage of system vulnerabilities. Attackers may target vulnerabilities for months or even years after updates are available.
Automated patch management and systems reporting is a must to stay on top of the ever-shifting landscape of Cybersecurity. This service is included in our Proactive Support. This applies to Desktops, Laptops, Servers and even your network equipment. When applicable, we will do an evaluation on your current equipment and see if major upgrades are needed and when we need to implement them.
