Managed IT Services and Cybersecurity Services for Other Industries
No matter your industry, the success of your business hinges on your ability to maintain day-to-day operations with no interruptions or delays. To stay productive, your team needs a dependable network. More importantly, your business must protect the sensitive data that could lead to serious consequences if leaked.
For all of your IT maintenance and management needs, turn to IT ArchiTeks. We provide cybersecurity-focused solutions for a broad range of industries and can provide customized services based on the size, scope, and nature of your business.
The Risks of Forgoing Managed IT Services
Most organizations need to focus on the strategic initiatives that allow them to scale their business, drive profits, and keep customers happy. While having a safe and secure IT infrastructure does play an important role in operations, IT maintenance and management aren’t always top-of-mind for business leaders. As a result, IT issues — particularly cyberthreats — often don’t get the attention they deserve.
This leaves a huge gap in cybersecurity protection, and an opportunity on which cybercriminals capitalize. Many small to midsize businesses mistakenly think they’ll never be targeted by hackers and other bad actors. In reality, this way of thinking makes them the perfect targets. It’s therefore no surprise that half of small and midsized businesses have experienced at least one instance of cybercrime within the last year.
Ransomware in particular, tends to be a growing concern for businesses. These types of attacks, in which data, networks, or other assets are held “hostage” until organizations pay the requested ransom, increased more than tenfold between July 2020 and June 2021. And, as tools like AI and machine learning make it easier than ever for cybercrime to be carried out, these events are only likely to accelerate.
Business leaders without a advanced cybersecurity protections in place leave their organizations vulnerable to not only attacks but their aftermath, which could mean significant losses, reputational damage, and even legal trouble should sensitive data be exposed.
Yet, many organizations do have some protection against cyberattacks; it’s just not enough. The vast majority of business leaders — 94% — are rightfully concerned about ransomware, and 72% have a cyber ransom policy in place. For 81% of small to midsize businesses, however, new forms of cybercrimes have successfully bypassed their existing security measures, such as antivirus. And, more than 80% of businesses that pay the ransom will be targeted again.
How Managed IT Service Providers Can Help
The good news is that partnering with a managed IT services provider can keep your business protected against cybercrime while delivering other benefits. Here are a few of the most noteworthy advantages of working with a company like IT ArchiTeks.
Alleviate IT Complexities
From routers to servers and other network equipment, plus software and device management, IT management is a complex endeavor. Even in small organizations, the role can be daunting. Finding the right IT talent is never easy, especially amidst labor shortages. For many businesses, outsourcing these responsibilities is the simplest and most economical solution.
Managed IT services specialists can find the best solutions to fit each business’s unique needs. Our team will see to it that your network remains dependable and protected against threats, so you can focus on key business outcomes.
Protect Against Cyberthreats
Regardless of industry, a business’s information is among its greatest assets. From private customer data to sensitive business information, there’s a lot at stake when it comes to your files. A cyberattack can have catastrophic consequences, from economic losses to delays and disruptions. Modern data security calls for the most advanced measures to mitigate cybersecurity risks. It’s not enough to simply be prepared to act in the event of a data breach. Instead, businesses must be equipped to take a proactive approach that actively targets and addresses threats before they can cause damage.
Ensure Regulatory Compliance
The data security landscape is becoming increasingly regulated, and many industries will likely soon face the threat of penalties and legal action in the event of leaked consumer data (if they haven’t already). Fines, damaged brand reputations, and litigation can be too difficult for many small to midsize businesses to recover from. A knowledgeable managed IT service provider can put the proper safeguards in place and help your business stay at the forefront of regulatory changes.
