When you run your own company, nothing feels better than success. When you start from the ground, and do everything yourself, you feel proud and don’t want others to intrude. But sometimes you need to let go and have someone else support part of your business, specifically your IT.
You can only get away with minimal support for so long before you need more secure storage and data backup options. Using a basic internet security program can only protect you from so much. Truth is that new threats, like viruses, security threats and hackers, can slip by these basic protection models. If you are experiencing any of these issues, and any of the following three signs, you need to contact your local IT support managed service provider:
Rapidly Growing Business
It happens where the right business will take off quickly and your backup and security are the last notes on your list. Don’t let it get behind you and make sure you get on your backup, quickly. There comes a point in time where local backup storage is redundant and unreliable. Using cloud options to get ahead is a good place to be, as it can be limitless and most secure. CITOC knows all about the cloud and has helped many businesses, like yours, manage a secure backup system.
Every business will go through a restructure at some point. Whether you need to be more efficient with your work or create a stronger hierarchy, CITOC can help you get there. Having a Chief Information Officer (CIO) will help manage your services virtually, local if it is feasible. Either way, they can help you with all your tech needs from securing a network to knowing what systems you need to be running. CITOC can serve as your outsourced CIO without you having to hire an expensive C-level executive. Have a professional handle your systems: it’s the most informed decision you can make.
Needing to Be Proactive/Not Enough Time
Have there been any tasks that you said you will do tomorrow, or another day? Putting off your backup and technology needs is the same thing as opening the front door for viruses and security threats. If there is too much on your plate, hand it off. CITOC specializes in working with the needs of your business to make sure you are on the right track. If there is new technology suited for your business, you can be assured that you will know about it. Don’t walk around blind waiting for something to happen, throw a lock on the door and flick on the switch, know what you are getting into.
These three signs address three main concerns for any business:
