  1. Common Myths About Business Technology Security

    Comments Off on Common Myths About Business Technology Security

    What would happen if your business fell victim to a ransomware attack or data breach? What would downtime do to your business? For many, even a single day of downtime could be catastrophic. Without solid, reliable information and tech security, you could end up putting your brand at risk. Some of the most common beliefs about protecting your brand, however, are actually misconceptions. Learn more about these cyber security myths to help you protect your Tucson or Phoenix business from harm and prevent unauthorized access to your data.

    Are You Falling for These Cyber Security Myths? 

    Do you believe any of the following myths about protecting your business?

    Myth: Only Some Industries are Vulnerable to Cyber Attack 

    Reality: If you sell a product, provide a service, collect donations or maintain consumer data in any way, you are vulnerable to a data breach. From lawyers to retail business owners and service providers, your business could be at risk if you’re not fully protected. While you may think your data is invaluable, a cyber-criminal will be looking for all types of information to hack. Names, addresses, phone numbers, billing information, and more — all personal data is susceptible to a cyber attack.

    Myth: Network Security is a One-time Project

    Reality: Network security is an ongoing need. Since threats and ways to hack technology are constantly evolving, your brand needs to be fully protected at all times. This should always include the most up-to-date methods and processes.

    Myth: All Network Security Providers are the Same 

    Reality: Different providers have a wide range of abilities and performance. With your business at stake, you can’t afford to be wrong about the provider you choose. Interview a few internet security brands to make sure you’ve made the best choice to protect your organization and your valuable business assets.

    Myth: Cybersecurity is the Sole Responsibility of Your IT Department 

    Reality: Your own loyal employee could accidentally be your greatest threat. From password misuse, wireless network management and falling victim to a phishing scheme — to social engineering, your employee could accidentally cause a security breach without meaning to! Regular training regarding best practices for cyber security can help protect your business and ensure you stay secure. Having extra cyber security and training for your business team will only make your defenses that much stronger.

    Myth: You Can Tell if Your System is Compromised

    Reality: Malware has become more sophisticated than ever and unless you know what to look for, it can easily run undetected. These types of cyber-attacks are designed to access both your business and personal information. You can’t afford to take risks with your business. It’s impossible to rely on being able to “spot the signs” of tampering. Be proactive and update cyber security measures to protect your brand from harm.

    Myth: You Can DIY your Tech Security 

    Reality: The typical business owner needs to be able to focus on running an organization, not staying up-to-date with the latest security trends and alerts. Monitoring and keeping your information secure can be a full-time job, especially if there’s been a serious attack.

We manage your entire IT infrastructure by becoming an extension of your team and keep your infrastructure safe and operating optimally. ProCare provides your company with the resources of a fully-staffed, in-house IT department for a fraction of the cost. Here are a few additional benefits of using ProCare with our team:

    ProCare Provides Cost Savings

    ProCare Provides Cost Savings

    ProCare can reduce your infrastructure costs in several ways. First, it allows you to downsize your on-site infrastructure by using our data centers, which reduces the cost of hardware. Secondly, ProCare also saves you energy and storage space for all of that tech stuff.

    Clients who use ProCare experience fewer system problems, reducing support tickets by an average of 30 percent—which saves you time and money on the clock! ProCare also makes your monthly IT operating budget more consistent and allows you to focus on your core competencies instead of IT maintenance.

    Device Management with ProCare

    Managed service providers originally focused on remote support for IT infrastructure during the 1990s. They began expanding into other areas such as device management by the early 2000s, however, especially for mobile devices.

    ProCare services include comprehensive monitoring for both users and individual devices. We also provide both remote and on-site support, as needed. ProCare services include scheduled maintenance tasks such as software updates and security patches. We also provide anti-virus protection, unattended technical support, and vendor support for our ProCare customers.

    ProCare’s Backup Management

    Backup and recovery have become an increasingly important part of IT management services in recent years. The security of these operations is vital for the protection of your revenue, profits, and reputation. ProCare monitors and manages your backups with customizable solutions, providing you with peace of mind and freeing up your IT resources.

    ProCare services also include software that performs complete backups to both local and cloud-based storage devices. We also provide 24/7 monitoring with alerts, and we handle any backup problems. An annual test on our end ensures you can recover your data in the event of a disaster.

    Firewall Management

    Firewall Management

    Firewalls prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to your network. A failure in your firewall can have extremely serious consequences, depending on the specific systems a hacker is able to access.

    ProCare firewall management includes the setup, monitoring, and maintenance of your virtual private network (VPN) connections. We also install intrusion detection and prevention systems, including gateway anti-virus protection and web content filtering. Additional tech security services in the ProCare solution also include updates to devise firmware.
