Cloud technology is expanding in every field, and there are many good reasons for this. A move to the cloud can benefit businesses by allowing workflows to be more flexible and convenient, increasing levels of security and reducing costs. Those that make an extensive and intelligent use of cloud technology will lead the market with more streamlined processes and a competitive edge. EC-MSP is here to provide support and consultancy on cloud issues, implement solutions, maintain security and offer support at all times.
With the many dangers of cybercrime that are increasing by the day, IT security is a service that is absolutely essential for every business. Each department and employee needs to account for all potential threats by taking every available measure. This applies to everything from encryption to firewalls and VPNs for remote devices. The consequences of a breach in security can be extremely damaging and even cause businesses to close down. This is why at EC-MSP we make cybersecurity a high priority issue for all our IT support clients.
Backup & Recovery
The loss of data is common to businesses everywhere, so enforcing a strict regime of managed backups is important. When data is not organised and monitored efficiently, data may be lost and organisations may be liable for this. For all kinds of data losses, and in order to adhere to various regulations, a clear backup plan must be maintained at all times. Our IT consultants can take an audit of your IT infrastructure, and implement a suitable backup solution.
Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018, all organisations in the E.U. and the U.K. have been subject to this strict set of laws. Making your business GDPR compliant means you can avoid the heavy fines imposed, but it also leads to a better practice of data management and security. Meeting compliance is not always straightforward, but EC-MSP is here to provide support with this new approach.
Network services are crucial for keeping IT systems in operation, and it includes the configuration of essential network hardware components. An error or problem in the network can negatively impact the performance of a system or create a security vulnerability. We make sure that this is avoided, by proactively monitoring the critical network hardware. In doing so we can identify potential issues in the early stages, before they can develop into more serious problems.
Moving to a different office location can be a challenging experience for all businesses. Relocating with a sophisticated IT and telephony infrastructure makes the move much more difficult. The disruption to operations needs to be minimised, with all services arriving to the new premises intact and at the right time. EC-MSP provides consultation and advice before the move, then manages and communicates every stage of the process to ensure that your business can return to normal operations as soon as possible.
