Your IT is OUR Business
IT complexity is a growing challenge for all businesses, from small to large. The reason is that IT is now integral to virtually every business process. Every company now needs a plan, devised by professionals, for support, security, data protection, business continuity, budgeting and long-term strategy. Though businesses increasingly leverage technology for productivity, cost savings, and competitive advantages –when it fails, the company is more vulnerable than it was in the past.
Unmanaged IT can undermine rather than advance company goals. For this reason, every business today needs the guidance of an experienced IT professional. But a full-time CIO is neither affordable nor necessary. This is the role and purpose of the vCIO. Here are some of the critical IT challenges that a Peak IT Security & Solutions vCIO will managed for your business.
Unmanaged IT can undermine your confidence in the network and your systems. Every business today needs the guidance of an experienced IT professional, but a full-time CIO is neither
IT Roadmap & Budget
The first order of business for the Peak IT Security & Solutions vCIO is to understand company goals and determine the technology gaps standing in the way. We then devise a plan, based on importance, urgency, and budget to achieve these goals.
IT Infrastructure and Operations
The technology at many businesses evolves as the business grows in an ad-hoc fashion, without leveraging industry design standards. The vCIO looks at the infrastructure design, network gear, and application systems and processes with fresh eyes and deep industry experience to reduce issues and frustration and improve productivity. When we review your maintenance contracts, we often find opportunities to reduce contract expenses. We will also review your IT Operations staffing levels, skill set, support model and provide recommendations. We have found that co-managed IT works best in some offices. You get to set the priorities without having to deal with all of the day-to-day issues and headaches.
Client security is a top priority at Peak IT Security & Solutions. We insist on following stringent industry standards and best practices to keep our clients safe from Internet intrusion, hacking, virus, malware and spam. System continuity, backup and data recovery are critical components of your company’s overall security plan.
