Outdated servers and legacy systems pose significant challenges for organizations. In best-case scenarios, these older solutions are responsible for reduced efficiency and increased complexity. In worst-case situations, they could lead to security breaches that force unexpected downtime.
Network management is a critical component of effective IT. As networks rapidly increase in both size and complexity, businesses need reliable and repeatable practices that allow them to discover what’s happening on their network, pinpoint root causes and take targeted action.
Seller Joanna Mirov and buyer Christopher Vollmond-Carstens take you behind the scenes for a rare inside look at how a successful MSP acquisition came together.
Many businesses today regard buying a company for access to markets, products, technology, resources, or management talent.
Technology offers a way to improve, evolve and transform current processes into more efficient and effective practices that let staff focus on doing their jobs instead of managing tech deployments.
Implemented effectively, however, technology deployments also offer another benefit: reduced costs.
IT outsourcing helps businesses better manage their software, hardware, and technology infrastructure by shifting some or all these functions to off-site providers.
While companies may choose to keep some key functions in-house, such as those related to critical data management or compliance, the sheer volume and variety of IT operations required for business success makes outsourcing a great option to both reduce complexity and improve overall efficiency.
Failure to follow HIPAA regulations comes with significant cost: According to a government agency, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has issued more than $133 million in fines for HIPAA violations.
The challenge? While HIPAA sets out expectations for privacy and security, it offers little in the way of guidance to achieve compliance in these areas.
Discussions about cybersecurity often focus on how effective defense can help limit the impact of attacks once cybercriminals have breached your network. Although this is a critical aspect of effective security, the advantages of cybersecurity extend beyond better reactions to help companies proactively protect digital assets from potential attacks.
Failure happens, even when businesses take all the right steps and make all the right moves to reduce disaster risk. From power grid failures to massive weather events to Internet service provider (ISP) problems, failure is always an option. Despite the risk, however, only 54 percent of organizations have a disaster plan in place, and just 23 percent regularly test these plans.
Adoption of managed IT services is on the rise as businesses look for ways to navigate increasingly complex digital environments without sacrificing speed or performance.
Data makes it clear that managed service providers (MSPs) are making inroads.
When it comes to IT disasters, it’s a matter of when — not if. While the cause varies — from power outages to provider problems to on-site hardware failure — every business eventually comes face to face with disaster.
Robust response to disasters offers better ROI than prevention.
