3 Ways Managed IT Can Prevent Technology Troubles

3 Ways Managed IT Can Prevent Technology Troubles

Is technology a major problem for your organization? If so you’re just like many small businesses out there that think they can’t afford proper IT maintenance and management. Thankfully, managed services threatens this misperception by bringing affordable preventative solutions to the table.

Outsourced IT, or managed services, can be a valuable investment for a business that wants to prevent problems from occurring rather than react to them as they happen. By effectively using managed IT, you can significantly reduce the risk of your technology failing before it’s meant to.

A Network Assessment
Before you can work toward resolving problems found on your network, you need to know that they exist. This is where a comprehensive network assessment comes into play. A network assessment shows you where your network has its flaws, whether they are traffic bottlenecks, security vulnerabilities, or even just failing hardware components. A third party like Merino Computer Concepts can provide this service for you so that you can get a clear, unbiased opinion on what you must do to improve your organization’s operations.

Remote Network Monitoring
Knowing what’s wrong is only half of the battle, though. Once you know where to look, you need to keep watch over your network to ensure that the weak points don’t develop into major problems. Yet, your in-house team likely doesn’t have time to monitor your entire infrastructure day-in and day-out. An outsourced IT provider like Merino Computer Concepts is far better suited to this role, as we can do so remotely without an on-site visit. We can then ensure that any maintenance that must be performed can be done before your network is put at risk.

Unified Threat Management
To keep your business from falling victim to a rogue virus or malware on your network, you need to take preventative measures. One of the best ways you can protect your business is with a Unified Threat Management solution, which provides the collective might of enterprise-level security solutions, including a firewall, antivirus, spam blocker, and content filter. By keeping threats like ransomware, Trojans, spyware, viruses, and so much more out of your infrastructure, you can prevent problems from happening in the first place.

Ultimately, managed IT that keeps issues from happening in the first place saves your business time and money. You can focus on making sure your business runs properly without interruptions. To learn more about managed IT, reach out to us at (209) 365-6800.
