Choosing the Right Security Option For Your Business

After covering the 411 on hosted and managed security, IST can help you pick which security solution fits best in your business.

Hosted

With a hosted security solution, IST helps businesses address two important challenges:

  1. Keeping software maintenance as efficient as possible
  2. Making ongoing investments in expensive infrastructures like PC/Servers, software and OS requirements, along with the staff needed to maintain it

Our hosted S.H.I.E.L.D solution allows businesses to access IST’s expert IT team, providing service at the highest levels and eliminating hefty IT staffing costs and expensive infrastructure, while gaining worry-free service and ensuring that your system is performing at peak efficiency.

 

Managed

With a managed security solution, IST helps businesses address four important challenges:

  1. Keeping software maintenance as efficient as possible
  2. Making ongoing investments in infrastructure and the commensurate staffing
  3. Keeping new and experienced users updated on the newest solutions and avoiding a system compromised by this knowledge gap
  4. Maintaining an expensive IT staff and adding more IT responsibilities, which can lead to maintenance inefficiencies or even security breaches

By opting for a managed S.H.I.E.L.D solution, you will also close any knowledge gaps by providing professional assistance and avoid the manpower expenses associated with running and maintaining the system.
