Computers used to be gigantic complex and intricate machines designed to do calculations, but today both you and I have computer-like devices in our pockets and laptops or desktos on our desks. These are also complex and intricate, but are still simple enough that the average tech savvy user armed with the right amount of knowledge of how they work can fix and modify them to suit a variety of needs, but this is only permited on private/personal computers (Pcs).
Office and business computers, however, need either a dedicated information technology (IT) division or an information technology solutions (ITS) firm. Having a dedicated information technology division in your company can certainly decrease the chances and need of fixing and maintaing the computers and networks throughout the office or complex. While this is the preffered option, it is also the most expensive one since the IT workers would need an office space to fix, repair and store parts.
This however is where the information technology solutions firms come in. Their main focus is to outsource IT work for companies without a dedicated IT division. Their main focus is networking and advising on the use of computers in a company. They also advise on cloud sharing and implementing security for the network.
IT Specialist firms also specialise in protecting your internet protocall (IP) address which is a numerical designation assigned to every device that connects to the internet, which is essential for protecting sensitive company files (documents that contain personal information or credit card information). Another service that is similar to the last mentioned is the installation of security measures and firewalls so that your company has a line of defense against hackers and malware. To do so, ITS firms use various different methods of protection to secure the network of your company. These include penetration testing and security consulting with proffessionals that are trained to test and ensure whether the security system is fully functional.
Additionally, there are insurance firms that have an insurance deal for cyber attacks. These work in such way that if your company loses a significant amount of their sensitive files, the insurance company pays for the replacement and investigation for the stolen information.
With these firms and companies, you can rest assured that your network and IP are secured and insured, especially since cyber attacks can be as devestating as break-ins (if not more in certain cases).
