Every organization nowadays is concerned with hacking. This includes small businesses, multinational corporations, and even public entities. Hackers are willing to attack companies of all sizes and types. In fact, 2016 was a banner year for hackers in terms of data breaches. These evil-doers exposed more than four billion records in this year alone. It is clear hackers are getting better at what they do. Will anyone make help available to protect end user’s data. Your MSP company should become the defense ally for local business, so they can sleep well at night knowing their data is as secure as possible.
Proactive Hack Prevention
In most instances, once a hack occurs the situation only gets worse. Your IT company should have proactive security steps to stop hacks before they occur. As the tech expert you should review your client’s digital security protections, make the appropriate alterations, and prevent those data breaches before they wreak havoc on their network.
Round the Clock Monitoring
The typical business does not have enough resources to monitor their network activity around the clock. However, such monitoring goes a long way in reducing response time to digital attacks and breaches. To be proven IT experts your techs should monitor client company’s network, production environment and branches.
Consider the following statistic from the Ponemon Institute. It takes the average financial business nearly 100 days to identify advanced threats. This amount of time is unacceptable. Such a delay has the potential to let massive problems develop and eventually put a company out of business.
Imagine letting hackers access all your files and information for 100 days. Think of the damage they could do in such staggering amount of time. End users need advanced 24/7 monitoring to detect threats, reduce damage following breaches, and preserve the integrity of your systems. The bottom line is few in-house IT teams can operate at such a level. Therefore, your IT professional should provide the ample bandwidth for continuous monitoring.
The Team Approach Your Business Needs
Consider how effective your entire team of security personnel will be compared to a few in-house employees. If a data breach occurs, a couple of IT workers you have on staff must respond to it while managing their daily duties. This is a recipe for a disaster.
Enhance your MSP company’s security to be the talented tech superstar’s that local businesses want to partner with. Do not wait until it is too late! If you don’t become the security experts your clients feel they can lean and sleep better at night, then they will start looking at your competitors. If you wait and let that happen it will cost you a significate share of the IT market.
