As you store your business information digitally, you make it shareable and mobile, which exposes it to greater security threats. Managed IT has the tools and expertise to help you protect your information so all your business locations can continue running smoothly.
Digital storage and file-sharing have made it increasingly easy to manage your business’ information. This becomes critical when you have more than one business location or remote employees. Operating your business digitally, however, comes with great responsibility. This includes staying knowledgeable of where your files are stored, who has access to them, and how you can reduce their exposure to unwanted users. You must consider that the information you are sharing between locations is not only your own but your customer’s as well. Here is how a managed IT company can help you secure your cyber footprint.
Cyber-attacks have accounted for losses of trillions of dollars in 2019 per Juniper research. As a business owner, the financial implications of an attack could paralyze or even shut down your business. There are dozens of types of cyber-attacks presenting huge threats to common software and networks used by businesses. At ION247, we offer the following cybersecurity measures to protect your systems from these attacks:

In this digital generation, having all employees trained is critical to reducing vulnerabilities.
