Managed Security

Your company’s data is valuable!  Everyone thinks so – especially the bad guys!

That’s why you need Managed Security.  Unfortunately, the words “Managed Security” have meant many things to many people over the last several years.  As a result, it has created a tremendous amount of confusion among small- and medium-sized businesses.  In fact, most believe their Managed Service Provider is fully protecting their data from all security threats.  Instead, they find out when it is too late that they are receiving the basic block-and-tackle security and a breach has occurred.

What You Should Know About Basic Block and Tackle!

It is not Managed Security!  Well-respected IT service providers will provide basic security such as antivirus, firewall content filtering, updates and patches, and offsite backups.  In fact, this is the very least you should expect from any service provider.  Yet, while this level is the first defense against security breaches, it is not enough in today’s cyber security world.

Block and tackle security done periodically does not catch issues between checks.  Unfortunately, the average virus or hacker can live on your system for up to nine months before they are detected.  Consequently, that is nine months of them watching, scanning, and stealing valuable information.

What Really Is Managed Security?

Managed Security is a systematic approach to managing the entire organization’s security needs.  It requires a full staff of security professionals who provide round-the-clock monitoring, log management, and responding to security events.  The security professionals only focus on security, not the general network or computer management.

Many regulated industries need true Managed Security.  However, it is also best practice for any organization that holds sensitive information.

Fortunately, the cost for managed security has come down significantly over the past two years.  Consequently, this makes it more affordable for small- and medium-sized businesses.

Data Encryption

Unauthorized parties accessing confidential company data?  It’s an unfortunate business reality these days. So what do you do to stop it? The answer is simple. Encrypt your data.

Our security specialists manage the encryption of your stored data, and they make sure your transported data, like emails, is also encrypted.

Why leave your network open to such threats? Every business, no matter the size, needs antivirus protection. INSI takes care of it all. We provide you with antivirus protection, we monitor it, and we update it. We even alert you if we suspect an issue. That means no more network security concerns for you!

INSI can set you up with a single sign-on portal. It keeps all your passwords encrypted and securely stored. It also tracks when passwords need to be updated or changed. In some cases, it can even update or change passwords automatically. There’s no need to waste valuable time and effort managing passwords when INSI has an easy solution for you!

Network Security

How secure is your network? Protecting your data is essential, but it may not be enough to keep your business safe.  In fact, you also need a secure network especially if you keep client information, such as personal health information (PHI), client records, or credit cards on file. Understandably, weak points in your network invite hackers and compromise your clients’ information. Without a doubt, you need to protect your business and your clients from these threats. Trust INSI to check your network for vulnerabilities, boost your network security, and protect your business interests.
