Managed IT Services

Traditionally there were no managed it services, consumers and Small Business owners had troubles finding support for their IT infrastructure. When a small business or consumer would find a business that they liked, they would have to rely on that business to be available for them when they were in a time of need. This was not a good way of doing business. If you were a business owner and your IT equipment would go down or break, you would frantically call your IT guy. Hours later if at all the same day, your IT guy would show up and start hammering away at your issues. Hours after arriving, your IT guy finds and solves the problem. Fortunately your IT guy solved your problem in the same day it happened, but didnt your just lose a day of being productive and getting stuff to work.

Managed IT Services is our solution to having days of downtime. Through managed services your IT guy get s the opportunity to listen to your network and IT equipment. He gets to managed when software updates and when virus scans scan. The goal isn’t to fix problems fast, but to eliminate problems from happening all together. By being able to manage your network and how IT equipment is being updated and when things scan, we can have better control over how they behave.

Bellow are a few managed IT services that are typically used by a managed service provider.

Patch Management

            One of the most overlooked issues in any business without an IT staff is patch management. Some businesses will hire a company to come in once or twice a month to make sure that they have all of the updates that they need. Today, once or twice a month will not cut it. Malicious software is developed every minute to attack vulnerabilities on your network. If your server or workstation is out of date then it will leave your business vulnerable to horrible threats.
