These days, the Internet seems to create as many problems as it solves, which is why cybersecurity needs to be a priority in every business. However, it’s not always easy to know where to start or what to do when it comes to protecting your hardware, software, and data. The good news is that, with a little wisdom from managed IT practices, cybersecurity is easier than ever.

Security the Managed IT Way

You can probably guess the purpose of managed IT services: to help you organize, utilize, and protect your technology, from the smallest mobile devices to the biggest networks. Managed IT brings a lot of wisdom to the table, but some of its best practices are based on working with you to minimize security threats rather than introducing processes that seem foreign in your existing workflow. Because of this, doing cybersecurity the “managed IT way” means you can create efficient, trustworthy solutions just by considering a few simple tips.

1. Employees cause the most IT problems.

The truth is that, although your employees mean well, the risk of human error is pretty sizable when it comes to cybersecurity. That’s why your best bet at protecting data is to help employees understand and combat some of the most common threats they’ll come across, from phishing to weak passwords.

2. Mobile devices need defenses too.

When creating your security procedures, never forget to include mobile devices. Since they’re a huge part of today’s business world, these easily-overlooked machines need to be managed and protected with the same vigilance you’d give a computer.

3. You should never have to sacrifice budget for quality.

If you’re facing a choice between risking your data and breaking your budget, something isn’t right. Managed IT can help you find the perfect balance, helping identify inexpensive and efficient solutions that make everyone happy.
