Why You Should Outsource Your IT

Why You Should Outsource Your IT

In today’s day and age, IT is vital to the operation of a business.  The question, though, is not whether or not you need IT, but whether or not you should build an IT department within your company or outsource to IT professionals. If you’re a large, continually growing company, it may be in your best interest to hire internally, however, if you’re just getting started or are working on long-term, steady growth (however slow it may be), it may be best for you to outsource your IT. Outsourcing IT Services Is cost efficient. By hiring an outside party, you can avoid certain expenses including the salary requirements that come when hiring qualified professionals. In addition, there can be serious equipment expenses and other costs that add up fast. When you outsource to a trustworthy company, you only have to pay for what you absolutely need. Lets you keep your resources free. Although you may have one or two employees who are tech savvy and capable, they weren’t hired on to do IT, were they? By outsourcing your IT, you can keep employees focused on what you need them to be doing instead of doing what they can do to help with IT. Gives you access to more. As mentioned above, having an in-house IT team and all the equipment they need can be expensive. Since you might not need everything right away, you wouldn’t purchase all of the equipment right away, naturally. When you outsource to a trustworthy company, you’ll have access to the tools you need, whether right away or later on, and it might even be...
3 Reasons To Make Regular Data Backups

3 Reasons To Make Regular Data Backups

Having server backups and recovery plans is essential for any business with critical or sensitive business information stored on electronic systems.  At Superior Managed IT we offer the highest quality in backup and recovery systems. Here are a few reasons that having these backups is important. Avoiding Operational Delays Power outages or server crashes can make critical information inaccessible, putting business operations on hold. Having a recent backup and recovery system will reduce the effect of detrimental server events, and get your business operations up and running again in a shorter time. Protecting Critical Data Many businesses have essential documents and information purely in digital formats. This can be anything from employee documents, to order details, to customer information. Losing that kind of data is often the equivalent of money lost, and a lot of it. Data backups ensure that critical information is never lost. Long and Short-Term Security Another important aspect of server and data backup is that it should be done in stages. A full data backup will secure all of your information, which is important in the event of a large-scale loss. There are also incremental data backups, which will protect only recent information, and are helpful because they can be more quickly restored and can be used to verify the authenticity of data before submitting it to customers or other companies. Superior Managed IT is here to help you revolutionize your company’s IT and ensure the safety and security of your data.

Why Choose Windows 10 Enterprise?

Why Choose Windows 10 Enterprise?

There many differences between versions of Windows 10, and it’s important to learn what these differences are and what will best suit your business. Microsoft offers Home, Pro, Enterprise, Mobile, And Mobile Enterprise versions of Windows 10. All of these versions have the same basic functionality for home and personal uses, but there are some key security differences which make Enterprise the most attractive for businesses. To name a few, credential guard, increased hardware security, virtualization-based security, device guard and Long Term Servicing Branch. Credential guard gives you a few options when securing your system. Hardware Security – Credential guard uses platform security features such as Secure Boot and Virtualization. Virtualization-based security – This ensures that services that run with “secrets” such as domain credentials (your username and password) run in a protected environment that is isolated from the running operating system. This ensures that any malware that may be running on the operating system is not able to access these “secrets”. Device guard – Enterprise hardware and software features will lock a device down so it can ONLY run trusted applications. It uses the Enterprise controlled policy to determine if something is safe to run, or could cause damage to your system. What about Sharing? One concern people have about Windows 10 is how it uses their information. You may have heard of “Sharing” Wi-Fi passwords, and other “private” information. With Windows 10 Enterprise, it is up to your domain admin to delegate access to any of these “sharing services”. Microsoft also recently explained how it uses any data it takes from your PC. The information Microsoft collects...
