Professionally managed - or co-managed - IT services can give your small business a competitive edge. We will take care of all the IT security and technology on a fixed monthly budget so you can stay focused on your customers. Our IT services for a flat fee are based on how many users you have so budgeting for growth is very easy. We have served small businesses for 20 years throughout the Northern VA and Metro DC area, from 10 – 150 employees.
Already have some internal IT staff but still need IT support, have special IT projects, or are larger than 150 employees? Our Co-managed IT services team can work with your staff by custom tailoring services for your specific IT needs.
For many small companies, their IT technology platforms and infrastructure have become their new “office” as they transition primarily or partially to virtual work from home settings. Employees working from home have become the new normal. However, cybersecurity threats and IT support issues have grown- and changed- significantly in the new work-at-home environment. Small business offices have become more vulnerable. The new cybersecurity default stance is now “Zero Trust” – Any network a user is working from should be considered unsafe and data must be protected at the same levels no matter where they are connecting from. Top cybersecurity risks include ransomware attacks, weak passwords, file sharing and unsecured home Wi-Fi networks. We are well versed in establishing a secure hybrid IT infrastructure that serves both home-based and office-based employees. Not sure where to start? Call us for free audit and proposal.
