If you couldn’t access your IT network for a day, what would the cost to your business be? If all your client data disappeared, how would you get it back? How long would that take? Would your customers wait for you?
Flooded server rooms, misplaced back-up tapes, hardware failure, power surges, power outages, corrupted data, accidental deletion, hacking, theft & virus infection are all very real risks to all of us. If you don’t have appropriate security solutions in place, then, quite frankly, you’re flirting with danger. And if you don’t have an appropriate DR plan in place when the worst happens, then you’re in real trouble.
From simple online back-up to managed firewalls, from email/web filtering to virtualised failover servers, help4IT will work with you to define the most appropriate security and DR solutions for your business, taking into account any relevant statutory or regulatory obligations to ensure that our recommendations are proportionate and correctly aligned to your commercial and operational requirements.
A business without its data isn’t a business for long. If all your client data was lost, how would you get it back? How long would that take? What would that cost in terms of downtime? help4IT’s cloud back-up services allow you to automatically send your encrypted data securely to our data centre where it can be accessed and restored at short notice. It’s extremely safe, secure & efficient and has none of the human error risks associated with traditional tape back-up.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
Most of us know that a robust Disaster Recovery plan is a core component of any business strategy. That doesn’t mean, however, that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is right for your company. help4IT will work with you to define your RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) & RTO (Recovery Time Objectives) for key services and data before designing and deploying the most appropriate solution for your business.
Depending on your RTO (Recovery Time Objectives) & RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) priorities, help4IT can take a snapshot of your systems and data at any intervals from every 15 minutes to every 4 hours. Many clients are happy to have this stored as a flat file which we can use to restore systems in the event of a failure, but if you’re looking for a solution that minimises downtime even further, then we can have a dedicated cloud server primed and ready to deploy as quickly as anyone in the industry.
Cloud Web Security
As your staff & infrastructure become ever more widely distributed, you need a security solution that protects your network & users everywhere. help4IT has a wealth of experience in designing & deploying industry-leading cloud email & web security solutions utilising a blend of products from some of the most trusted names in the industry.
Mobile Device Management
As smartphones and tablets become increasingly powerful, many companies have opted for a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy in the workplace. Whilst this can have a material benefit in terms of reduced hardware & contract costs, it also comes with its own risks.
Even organisations that distribute their own devices to staff still need to apply security and usage policies for both the devices and the network they connect to, especially since employers and employees often have different expectations on the type of restrictions that should be applied to mobile devices. help4IT has been designing & deploying innovative Mobile Device Management.
Firewalls are a key part of any IT security infrastructure, but managing multiple firewalls across many sites can be a real headache. Our managed firewalls are the perfect solution, delivering lower start-up and operating costs and better scalability than owning or managing them in-house.
Laptops, mobiles, tablets, even good old-fashioned desktops – if it connects to your network, then it’s an endpoint. For over a decade, help4IT has been a trusted partner of some of the leading endpoint security companies on the planet, ensuring you are fully protected against viruses, malware, spam and unauthorised access.
