Why Managed IT Services are a Perfect Fit for Growing Businesses

A small business is just as susceptible to the many problems that face large enterprises, and the dangers only multiply with the more technology you implement in the office that is why Managed IT Services are a perfect fit for small business. The larger your network gets, the more difficult data distribution and storage becomes. The more employees you work with, the more devices that will appear in the office. The more data you work with, the more likely you are to get hacked. These are all very real risks. What are you doing to protect your company from these threats?


We’d like to present one surefire way to dodge the majority of problems associated with business technology management: Our STRATISPHERE™ Core IT Managed Services. We can use our proactive approach to take care of your technology so that you can focus on running your business. While we offer many different types of services, here is a brief rundown of some of our popular ones.


Data Backup and Disaster Recovery


Have you taken the time to think about what your business would do if it suddenly lost all of its data? If not, do so now. It could be much more than just a couple of months’ worth of leads put at risk. An untimely hardware failure could have lasting effects on the way that your business functions. You’ll need to replace the hardware, which could take several days, or even weeks. During this time, your business isn’t working as intended, which can severely damage your productivity. Instead of suffering from this unfortunate occurrence, you can implement a BDR to take multiple copies of your data and keep them safe for recovery at a later date. BDR is designed to eliminate downtime and take a proactive stance against data loss due to natural disasters, hacking attacks, user error, and more. This is where our BDR solutions in our STRATISPHERE™ IT Risk Management services come in.


Remote Monitoring and Maintenance


Most problems with your technology can be resolved remotely, without the need for an expensive on-site visit. Managed IT services capitalize on this convenience by allowing you to get the help that you need, when you need it. This cuts out waiting for the technician to arrive on-site and keeps downtime caused by the issue to a minimum, allowing you to get the problem fixed right away and get right back to work. Furthermore, we can apply any necessary patches and security updates remotely so that you will always be protected from existing and developing threats.


Network Security


Hacking attacks and security threats will always be one of the most dangerous parts of running a business. Some of the scariest threats currently on the Internet include ransomware and botnets that enslave Internet of Things devices. Only a cybersecurity professional knows how to identify and prevent infections from known threats. We can equip your business with a comprehensive Unified Threat Management solution to limit infections on your network in the first place. Our STRATISPHERE™ IT Risk Management services UTM packages includes an enterprise-level firewall, antivirus, spam blocker, and content filter.


Cloud Hosting


Why host your data on-site when you can outsource the responsibility to us? When you think about it, hosting your data on your own servers is a bit of a hassle. Unless you have on-site technicians to take care of it, you’ll be left at a disadvantage. Maintaining servers is certainly not a job for amateurs. STRATISPHERE™ Cloud Services can store your data in our cloud, which we can maintain ourselves. You can remotely access your data through the use of cloud services, allowing you and your team to be productive from anywhere at any time.
