In the computer age, computer security can mean storing valuables, especially for businesses. While a hard drive crash or interference by spammers and hackers to PCs can cause confusion, frustration, and unexpected repair costs, data loss or disruption to company computers can lead to business failure.
Most companies say their data is their most valuable asset, and 50 percent of companies close their doors within a year if they experience significant data loss. To avoid data loss as well as hackers and spyware, companies have a choice: they can deploy and manage their own computer security services, or entrust the security of their computers to providers of managed firewall management services, virus protection, spam filtering, and data archiving solutions.
Choosing a managed security service over a built-in security solution has several advantages, starting with cost. Unlike in-house solutions, the solutions offered in the SaaS model do not require the customer to pay for the following items: hardware and software, system implementation, system maintenance, and system updates.
Instead, the customer pays a monthly fee, which is usually offered for a fee. The second benefit of a managed IT solution is that remote data storage offers assurance that data will be preserved in the event of fire and flood. The third benefit of managed IT solutions, which ensures that the company's security system is up to date with the latest technology.
When organizations implement built-in security solutions, they often assume that the firewall and spam protection they set up will be sufficient for the future, which is rare.
