James Tilbury, CEO of ILUX talks through the pros and cons of outsourcing your IT.
There’s no denying that cybercrime, phishing threats and ransom attacks are on the increase. GCHQ recently issued warnings to bolster defences in light of the Ukraine war and a recent Sophos report demonstrates the increased impact on your business of attacks with over a quarter of businesses paying their attackers unnecessarily.
If you have an internal IT department it is highly recommended that you employ an external party to validate security and provide ongoing protection through managed anti-malware, anti-spam and backup services together with regular penetration tests.
Any services provided by an MSP will be linked to monitoring dashboards and alerting systems which keep a watchful eye over your devices and network 24/7. They detect early warnings through unusual behaviour and should an attack occur, can isolate the infected devices to mitigate propagation through the business.
