Managed services take on a preventative and proactive response rather than a reactionary one . The objective is to catch any issues before they go bad, all in an effort to keep your systems up and running. Every element of managed services is important, but Managed Security is critical.
There are just so many access points to attack throughout your IT system. Just consider this short list and know it simply scratches the top:
- Updates not done and patches not installed
- Unfiltered content
- Email intrusion techniques
- Unfiltered spam
- Lack of firewalls
If you are not constantly scanning and monitoring the security of your network, you are asking for a problem. And it is too dangerous to take the risk. Tailwinds IT Solutions offers Security Assessments in order to identify and address vulnerabilities and gaps. However, that is the first step. You find the problems and then take recommended measures to secure the system. That’s great.
But threats change, and they keep coming. If you do not monitor and maintain the measures you have taken, it will not be long before cracks begin, and gaps emerge. You are putting your system in a threatened state again.
Tailwinds IT Solutions wants your business protected and continual 24/7 oversight plays a big part. However, sometimes events take place that cannot be controlled. As another proactive measure, Tailwinds IT Solutions helps you create an IT Plan. We believe that effective security is both preventative and proactive.
