How Do Managed IT Options Aid Small Businesses?

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, but without the same access to great software solutions as larger conglomerates, many feel as though they’re being left behind in a digital sense. As technology becomes more and more integrated into both how we run our lives and our businesses, software solutions have emerged to meet the needs of smaller companies that don’t have the time, team, or tools to manage their tech on their own. When you need to keep your information and the information of your customers safe at a lower cost, DataVizion can help by integrating a Managed IT Service (also known as a SOC) program into your business.

What is a SOC?

SOC stands for “security operations center,” and it refers to a team within a company that is comprised of cybersecurity experts, security analysts, engineers, and other individuals. They focus on the detection, assessment, and response to cyber threats. As online criminals find more and more sophisticated techniques for infiltrating and stealing data, these teams are becoming more and more crucial for the safety of your business's sensitive information. 

Using a variety of tools, these are the people who spot vulnerabilities in a cybersecurity network, protect against viruses and attempts to infiltrate the network, and create countermeasures to prevent future threats. For small businesses, however, creating an entire team to protect your digital footprint isn’t likely in the cards (or, more accurately, it’s not in the budget).

What are Managed IT Services?

Many smaller companies are turning to Managed IT Services as a turnkey solution that, once implemented, provides you with a remote team to manage your data. It works very similarly to a subscription service. For example, when you pay for a streaming service, you’re paying for access to all the shows and movies available on their platform. Similarly, Managed IT Services uses advanced software to provide you with a dedicated team of security professionals who monitor your business’ devices, cloud storage, and networks remotely, detecting harmful activity from bad actors to immediately and effectively respond to threats. 

This is a way to provide a lower-cost option for businesses that don’t have either the knowledge to take care of these security issues on their own or the budget to finance an in-house team to do so. When you use VizionCare Secure as your Managed IT partner, your small business gets big protection, including:

  • Threat detection
  • Risk & liability assessment
  • 24/7 network monitoring
  • Real-time alerts & rapid response
  • Compliance reporting
  • And more!

You’re not invincible. You’re the target.

Small businesses are a big market for cyber attacks.

Hackers have realized that smaller businesses are easier targets for cyber attacks. According to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 61% of cyber attack victims are business with less than 1,000 employees.

So why are small business the target for these invasions? The answer is simple. Small businesses generally have weaker security. What weaknesses does your business have? Here are five of the most common:

  1. Phishing still works. This year’s DBIR found that about 1 in 14 users were tricked into following a link or opening an attachment.
  2. Weak passwords. Maybe it’s the amount of passwords we all have to remember or lack of creativty. Whatever it is, people are still failing to set strong enough passwords. Stats show 80% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen passwords and/or weak or guessable passwords.
  3. Old defenses aren’t working against new threats. Many companies are relaying on outdated cyber security defenses. You need a cyber security plan that keeps pace wit the ever-envolving hacker techniques.
  4. Employees. Unfortunaly, many breaches are a result of employees or former employees who have access toinformation and use it to their benefit, which can often harm your business.
  5. Physical theft. Whether deliberate or accidental, cyber security threats can start with hard copies or sensitive information landing in the wrong hands.

Though these statistics may be alarming, there are affordable solutions to insuring your business doesn’t become a victim to cyber attacks. DataVizion is now offering a new managed security service solution, VizionCare Secure. Our solution provides advanced threat intelligence and the same level of security as the largest companies in the world, all at a low monthly cost. 

To show businesses just how valuable it is, we offer a free 30-Day Security Health Assessment for your business. During that time, we will assess your security posture, risk profile and identify potential gaps.

You may think your small business is immune to a cyber attack, but in reality small businesses are becoming larger targets. Contact us today for more information or to enroll in the free assessment (402) 327-1880.
