Managed services simply put is outsourcing your IT needs to a company such as myself.  What we do is manage your IT needs and services both remotely and on-site for you.  A lot of people think of IT support as simple helpdesk support, but there is so much more to it than that.  Not only can we help you with day-to-day problems, but we can help with preventative problems as wells such as hacks and viruses or data loss.

One such service that we offer is managed cloud backup for your company.  Most companies do not have a disaster plan in place these days and that is where we come in to help.  We can offer a fully managed, automated cloud backup solution for your company so that you don’t need to worry about the potential loss of data from things such as hard drive failures or even Ransomware attacks.  By having your data backed up off-site you are protecting it from other disasters such as fire, flood or theft.  No longer are your backups located with your local machines and susceptible to these problems any longer.  Your data is now encrypted and stored off-site in a secure location with redundancies taken into consideration so that no loss of data will occur.  With this service we can also perform such things as a remote wipe of your computer as well if need be.  Have you or an employee ever left a laptop at a hotel or on a plane?  Well now we can securely wipe your data from afar for you so that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.

What other types of services can you off load to a company such as Preferred Computer Solutions?  Well antivirus is another big one.  We now offer an industry leading managed antivirus protection suite for your company.  Not only is this suite very robust, but it also uses very little system resources compared to consumer grade protection suites.  We can monitor the health of your systems and are alerted to any threats that are found on each system in real-time.
