With growing threats in cyber security, and the exponential growth of online services, it makes sense to have someone manage your IT needs. As a local IT support for Northern Beaches, we offer the following IT support:
1. Cyber Security Management
Cyber security management is a critical part of any IT support. With the implementation of government-recommended best practices as a start, your Northern Beaches business becomes insulated from the high risk of many cyber attacks. We also perform measures such as intrusion detection and network monitoring, cyber security auditing, and anti-malware and threat protection solutions.
We’ll help you ensure your business keeps running after incident with business continuity management and cyber security policies and frameworks that give you the tools to perform after disaster and minimise your downtime.
2. Network Services
Network services covers a range of network-related services within your business and is an essential part of IT support. Northern Beaches businesses are required to have reliable connectivity and networks in order to collaborate effectively with clients and with other partners. Our network services include processes such as: printer monitoring, network monitoring (early detection of any suspicious activity or network issues), switch monitoring, and network optimisation (to ensure your network is operating at the best capacity for your business).
3. Backup and Disaster Recovery
Don’t let backups be the thing you neglect until you need it. By the time you need it, it’s already too late. We’ll set you up with regular systematic backups to a secure location as well as performing periodic testing to ensure data is recoverable.
Your backup and disaster recovery protocol will be included with your business continuity plan and management; an often overlooked yet essential component of IT support in small businesses.
4. Project Services and Management
If your in-house team is flooded with internal work and projects, then it can be ideal to outsource your IT projects to an IT support business on the Northern Beaches. While your team focuses on issues that directly affect your business growth; a team like Stanfield IT can manage your bigger or more long-term IT projects, such as migrating your system to Office 365 or G Suite, management for system migrations and business relocation, upgrading your network or workplace stations.
These type of projects can be tedious and overwhelming for a local business. Where do you start? What hardware do you need? What plan is best suited for the business? Using an IT support business to handle these projects takes the stress out of it, since you can be assured it’s in the hands of someone experienced, with the understanding of a fellow local business.
5. Managed Devices
We are in the golden age of BYOD (bring your own devices) and flexible work arrangements. How do you keep abreast of every device? Ensuring data security, industry compliance and user management? An IT support team on the Northern Beaches can take you through this project: from setting up work-related devices (from PCs to mobiles and tablets), to implementing mobile device management and mobile application management, and ongoing device monitoring.
This enables your team to work effectively across all devices, and provides you with the security of knowing your company’s data is secure and the ability to monitor what employees have access to within those devices.
Your servers are part of the backbone of your business. If a server goes down, what happens? All work comes to a grinding halt. Don’t let that be a part of your company’s story. An IT support partner will perform server updates, server optimisation including performance monitoring of CPU and RAM, and threat maintenance.
We can even offer server upgrades, and discuss the benefits of a local, physical server, versus utilising a cloud solution. Without an IT partner, however, those choices can seem unclear and confusing! That’s what your IT partner is there for.
This is just a sample of the IT support we can provide across the Northern Beaches. What makes us different from other IT support Northern Beaches? What sets Stanfield IT apart from the herd? Read on!
