IT support can be essential in helping ensure network operations are at their most secure.
There are many things that naturally compromise your network. With outsourced IT support management, you’re able to more securely avoid them while reducing the cost involved in doing so. Several ways by which your network may be secured by an IT support provider include:
MOBILE DEVICE MANAGEMENT (MDM)
An IT support provider can help your business ensure devices used in a remote capacity don’t compromise functionality. With MDM, you can erase devices remotely, you can update them remotely, and you can even reboot them; uploading new or augmented operating systems as necessary. An additional MDM advantage involves only allowing authorized users onto your system through solutions like multi-factor authentication, whereby those seeking access must prove who they are through more than one means of verification.
CONTINUOUS UPGRADE AND SUPPORT
Even if you’ve got internal support, you’re not likely to be as up-to-date on the latest protective measures as you will be if you work with an outsourced solution. Outsourced technology providers compete with other providers who want to do the same job. If they don’t have the latest solutions available in terms of security, then they could let down clients, driving them to competitors. Accordingly, they’re more likely to push for updates which are automatic.
BACKUP AND DISASTER RECOVERY PROTOCOLS (BDR)
Backup and data recovery is your last line of defense when something totally undermines your operations. If you lose your system, you need to be able to reboot and you need some kind of recovery protocol in place so that getting systems back to normal doesn’t induce unnecessary downtime. Outsourced solutions can help you do this with exceptional efficiency.
