Are you looking for an easy answer on how to prevent cybercrime against your business? We wish there were one fool proof answer, but there isn’t. Cybercrime can happen to any individual or business and costs businesses and individuals million every year. Although there isn’t one answer, outsourcing your IT needs through a managed service provider can help reduce your chances of malware, spyware and ransomware attacks on your company’s data.

It’s Our Job & We Know Our Reputation Hangs on Your Data Security

As a business owner you like have taken steps to try to prevent cybercrime against your business. However, it’s likely not your area of expertise. If it were, you’d be our competitor instead of our customer! It is, however, one of ours. We constantly evaluate tools available and ensure that our customers have the most effective tools working together. It’s a multi-pronged approach that includes at least the following:

  • Anti-virus software
  • Firewall protection
  • Secure network & wi-fi including a guest wi-fi
  • Data backup
  • Regular updates to software for security purposes

In addition, we recommend password policies and a detailed IT policy handbook that all employees understand and adhere to.

Managed Service Providers Offer More Better & Secure Data Backup Options

Although many businesses think that backing their data up to Google, Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox is a good solution, it’s not. One reason is that your time is valuable. There is no option where you can bulk restore your data. You have to retrieve each file individually. You also have to intentionally save a file to the drive. When you outsource your IT to a managed service provider they backup your data on a schedule. If your data is held for ransom or infected, they can easily restore everything, usually within a few hours. Also, the data you upload to these sites isn’t as private or secure as you may think.

We Stay Informed

Because it’s our job to prevent cybercrime against our clients, we stay informed of all the latest viruses, malware and trojan horses. We make sure that the tools we’re using with our clients are best in class and do what you need them to do. And, we’re here for you to restore the data. We take on that work so you can get back to running your business in the event there is a hack or other issue.

No One Can Guarantee You’ll Never Be Attacked

However, when you choose an experienced and professional managed service provider to help prevent cybercrime, disruption to your business when an attack happens is much lower. The losses you may incur as a business are minimal compared to a company who tries to handle their cybersecurity on their own.
