Hardware and Software: How an MSP Protects Your Company – Part 1

Let’s take a deeper look into how Networks Unlimited, a Managed Services Provider, protects your company.

Let’s start with some of the simple things first, like how your hardware and software is protected.

Updates and Patches

This one is boring but absolutely critical. If you ignore all those little boxes in the corner that ask you to update software, you are in big trouble. The reason they pop up isn’t to annoy you (shocker, we know) but because there was a vulnerability identified and the software team made changes to address that issue. Sometimes the updates are frequent, and sometimes they don’t come around for a while. Regardless, you HAVE TO update your software as often as possible. You leave yourself open to attackers if you don’t.

By partnering with Networks Unlimited as a Managed Services Provider, you’ll always stay up-to-date. Because of the proactive monitoring, your technology will be updated when needed. If there are any issues, you have a full support team to help. You won’t ever have to stress about that update again.

New Equipment

You may think that 8-year-old computer is perfectly fine to use, but old equipment can clog networks like hair clogs a drain. We all know that technology advances like the speed of light (hello new iPhone every 6 months) so think about that the next time you look at that 8-year-old piece of machinery.

And as much as we may love our workstation that we’ve become comfortable with over the years, it’s probably struggling under the weight of running newer and newer programs with its old operating system. It’s just the nature of the beast. So, identifying those pieces of equipment that don’t make sense anymore really helps streamline your efficiency.

When you partner with an Networks Unlimited as a Managed Services Provider, you’ll get a very thorough audit into your current equipment and network. Pieces that are causing challenges will be identified, along with solutions to make sure those challenges disappear forever. With up-to-date equipment supporting your network and experts constantly monitoring your infrastructure, your chances of falling victim to cybercrime are slim to none.
