October 16th Is Steve Jobs Day
The first one is that technology is evolving so fast that it’s hard to keep up. You may have seen the TV commercial with the young man wearing a VR headset. He’s managing his world in a virtual reality where he turns on the TV by telling the trash can to do it. Though the commercial is funny, it is possible these days to watch the news on your refrigerator or turn on your TV from the car.
The second thing has to do with cyber-crime. Cyber criminals are not simply young experienced guys sitting at a computer in their mom’s basement anymore. Cyber-crime has escalated and is now being perpetrated by huge government entities. Many of the big attacks from the last few years have originated in China, North Korea and Russia. These hackers are working for the government.
And they are very motivated to do an excellent job. Communist countries still execute people at random. American companies cannot compete with that level of motivation, nor would we want to.
At Outsource IT Solutions Group, we do encourage all our techs to stay up-to-date, always be thorough and professional, and stay educated about the world of IT. We believe that’s one of our strengths … our people are always on top of whatever is going on in the IT landscape. We want to give our customers the very best managed IT services available. When you succeed, we do too!
Those are the two biggest challenges for today’s business owners both now and as we move into the future. We must find better methods to stem the growing tide of cyber breaches if American businesses are going to survive and thrive. A printing company in Colorado just had to close their doors because of a succession of cyber and ransomware attacks.
Though these are serious matters, at Outsource IT Solutions Group we do have a solution for that.
Managed IT Services are the most cost-effective way to keep your technology secure and running at peak performance. For a fixed, monthly, easy-to-budget-for fee, you can have a full range of professional IT Services. Along with that, you get 24/7 support for minimum downtime. This alone can save you untold dollars throughout the year.
Need a great business continuity plan? Let’s set one up for you! You never know when a hurricane or flood could take your business down. But with today’s cloud technology, you and your employees can keep working from remote locations.
That is the future of business. People need and want to work from any location using any device. And that’s great – if you have a properly maintained Mobile Device Management program. But you must have a way to remotely delete your company information from any device that’s lost or stolen.
Your employees should be regularly trained on what to watch for when it comes to phishing emails and other cyber threats. Many data breaches could have been prevented if only the employees had been better trained. In addition to training, we monitor your network for malicious threats and block them before they can do any damage.
These are just a few of the managed IT services Outsource IT Solutions Group can provide for your business. From 24/7 Remote Monitoring and Management to a strong Business Continuity plan, we’ve got your covered.
There’s a whole lot more to Managed IT Services than most people think. If you believe this could benefit your business and enable you to be ready for the future, please give us a call. We can set up a no-obligation consultation where we come out to your office and answer all your questions. We believe you’ll quickly see what a bargain Managed IT Services from Outsource IT Solutions really are.
