Why Your Business Needs Managed Security
Why Your Business Needs Onsite Techs Managed Services
Locking your front door after a burglar has already ransacked your house doesn’t do much, and the same is true of cybersecurity. With the help of Onsite Techs, you can stay ahead of security threats with well-tested, leading-edge technologies.
Ransomware, Trojans and crypto mining make the news regularly these days. Businesses and consumers are aware of the threats, yet there is no single magic pill that can keep you safe. Cybercriminals are mixing up their tactics to outwit their targets and the results are increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. Password theft and password-based breaches remain a daily occurrence in 2019. This is only one of many areas of concern in the realm of Cybersecurity.
Onsite Techs is what’s called a managed service provider or MSP for short. An MSP will help your business to stay on top of evolving threats. For a small, fixed monthly cost, you add our team of experts to your arsenal. Instead of reacting, we work proactively behind the scenes to identify vulnerabilities and prevent attacks. When business security is internal, a single person or small, overworked team tries to stay current. With Onsite Techs, in-house IT teams focus instead on business tasks. You can trust Onsite Techs to know the latest, most effective technologies. Our MSP experts do extensive training and regularly attend security conferences so that your business benefits without having to spend finite resources.

Onsite Techs proactive approach will save you from data breach devastation. Financial damages resulting from a breach can be large. In 2018 a Cisco study found that 54% of all cyberattacks resulted in damages of more than $500,000 USD. Those costs aren’t the only risk of a data breach. Your business also risks
- theft of intellectual property;
- loss of competitive advantages;
- damage to brand reputation;
- customer dissatisfaction and loss;
- regulatory fines.
No matter your business size or industry, you are at risk. Cisco found 40% of companies with 250–499 employees had experienced a severe security breach in 2018. Larger organizations were similarly impacted but tended to be more resilient. When a small business is breached the damage is usually even greater. Their core systems are likely interconnected, which allows the attack to spread easily. The threat landscape is always shifting. You might also be at risk from targeted attacks against your employees (e.g. faked business email communications), ransomware (holding your data hostage), or other advanced threats.
Managed services provided by Onsite Techs will ensure you have the people, processes, and technology to protect your business. Plus, if the worst happens, we have the skills to mitigate the damage and get you back up and running quickly and easily.
