300 Million New Pieces of Malware Were Created in a 2014, Making Desktop Management A Must

The cyber threat landscape is expanding.

Cyber threat

In 2014, over 300 million new pieces of malware were created, the largest such figure ever recorded. What’s even more startling than that astronomical figure is the fact that all it takes is one particular nasty threat out of the hundreds of millions to put you out of business for good.

How can a virus close you down? Well, if data loss is involved, it’ll cost you an average of $150 per compromised file to recover. While $150 isn’t anything worth worrying about, you have to consider that thousands of files are usually compromised in a single attack, meaning you’re looking at a least a six-figure hit. That’s enough to put 55% of businesses out of business within just 6 months of an online security breach.

Patch Yourself Up

OffSite IT will manage your desktops and laptops to keep the cybercriminals at bay. It’s just about a full-time job to keep up with all the software updates and patches required to protect your network from developing threats.

We’ll do that, and we’ll also regularly assess your computers for other weaknesses and fix them before they can be exploited by cybercriminals.

What Are Your Workers Up To?

You can’t expect any employee to be the perfect model of productivity.

Even your best workers probably take a few minutes out of the day Googling for their own purposes. Other employees take this slacking off to an extreme degree and waste a lot of time or even put the integrity of your data at risk (don’t forget about those six-figure consequences of data loss).

We’ll make sure no one on your staff is using unapproved programs that kill productivity (such as RSS readers) or put your data in harm’s way (such as file sharing software).

More than Just Security

Desktop management isn’t just about security. Other benefits include:

  • Help with hardware: we’ll remotely keep track of your hardware and make sure you know when equipment has passed its lifecycle so it can get replaced before it fails.
  • Software installation: not every installation is as easy as clicking ‘OK’ a few times. We’ll install your software for you and make sure everything is configured correctly now so that you don’t have problems later.
  • On-site support: as convenient as remote solutions are, not every problem can be solved remotely. We’re ready to jump in our van and be at your office within hours when you have a problem with your desktops that requires an on-site solution.

I first hired John directly as an employee back in 1999.
He was an excellent addition to a growing team at a small technology company. Subsequent to the sale of the company, John branched out on his own and started an IT consulting firm. Since that time, I have not used anyone else. John is capable, personable, has integrity and is also very likable. I would recommend him without reservation.”
