IT Support Northern Beaches
Stanfield IT is the name in IT Support on the Northern Beaches in Australia’s business hub, Sydney. When you want a team to support your business’s IT, engaging with a local company has a world of benefits as they already have a grasp on the local business environment.
We provide IT support across the Northern Beaches, from Manly up to Palm Beach (plus everywhere in between). Our goal? To ensure local businesses are getting the best outsourced IT support in the game.
Outsourced IT support is a powerful tool for your business. An IT Support Northern Beaches team will keep you from being distracted by fiddly technical issues. We understand the priorities and needs of local businesses (let’s face it―we are one!) and we will work with you to ensure these needs are met.
We empower you to focus on your business goals, growing your influence and hitting targets while we take care of your IT.
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:
1. Cyber Security Management
Cyber security management is a critical part of any IT support, Northern Beaches services are no exception. With the implementation of government-recommended best practices as a start, your Northern Beaches business becomes insulated from high-risk cyber attacks.
At Stanfield IT, we also perform measures such as intrusion detection and network monitoring, cyber security auditing, and anti-malware and threat protection solutions. We’re meticulous in our risk diagnosis, preventative measures, and disaster recovery.
Our objective is to give your business the best possible outcome when it comes to cyber security. That is zero cyber security breaches. Of course, we know this isn’t always possible, but we will also ensure your business can react quickly and effectively to an attack.
We’ll help you ensure your business keeps running after an incident with business continuity management and cyber security policies and frameworks that give you the tools to perform post-disaster and minimise your downtime.
2. Network Services
Network services cover a range of network-related functions within your business and are 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.
At Stanfield IT, we know that no two businesses are the same, and thus tailor network solutions to your business so that you can deliver―and exceed!―the expectations of your clients or customers.
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. This is an often overlooked―yet essential― component of IT support for small businesses.
Our backup and disaster recovery solutions are timely and modern, yet we are able to work with your business no matter where it’s at technologically―cloud or no cloud!
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 Northern Beaches team like Stanfield IT.
While your team focuses on issues that directly affect your business growth, our IT experts can manage your bigger or more long-term IT projects. This could be anything from migrating your system to Office 365 or G Suite, to management for system migrations and business relocation, to 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 a local Northern Beaches IT support business to handle these projects takes the stress out of finding the right IT solutions and strategies. You can be confident in the experience and reliability of your local IT support team, who implement national and global best practice where it counts.
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? What’s more, how do you do this while maintaining 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, as well as 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. You’ll also have 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.
Stanfield IT can even offer server upgrades and discuss the benefits of a local, physical server as opposed to utilising a cloud solution. We do, of course, still work with multiple cloud-based infrastructures. Without an IT partner, however, those choices can seem unclear and confusing! That’s what we are here for.
This is just a sample of the IT support we can provide across the Northern Beaches. Would you like to know more about what makes us different from other IT support Northern Beaches? What sets Stanfield IT a part from the herd? Please read on.
