Managed IT Security
Achieving a high-security standard, for your business IT, is vital. Now, while that isn’t exactly a controversial, or new thing to say, in our experience, a lot of businesses simply don’t take data security seriously until they suffer a breach, hack, or cyberattack that affects sensitive files, servers or the workings of their core business. This is when they regret not having thoroughly managed data security services, and proper security technology in place but, by then, it’s too late. Here at Everything Tech, we would hate for this to happen to you which is why we think our managed security services for your business IT is a great option.
We work hard to protect Manchester-based business with our managed data security services and would love to help you. From using our unique expertise to offer you, and your team, recommendations to implementing a new security policy, and taking proactive measures that prevent security risks from becoming detrimental – we do it all.
As security experts, and an IT support company, based in Manchester, we believe that security management should involve thorough, proactive monitoring of every element in an organisation, including who has access to files and the security strategy already in place, as well as the constant analysis of security threats. All these proactive security considerations have many purposes but the main one is to stop attacks from even starting, as opposed to being reactive to them once they have already started.
Are your file servers, cloud applications, and overall computing infrastructure safe from hackers? Our world-class managed services, and threat monitoring, will give you peace of mind in an ever-changing landscape of cyber threats, and ensure you meet relevant protection regulations. We’ll take appropriate measures, and implement safeguards, to ensure users can work safely and not fear outsider, or insider threats.
If you’re interested in our managed security services then be sure to contact the team at Everything Tech for expert advice about the services we can offer you on 0161 826 2220 or get in touch for a free onsite IT audit or review.
Cyber Threat Stats
Don’t think you’ll ever be affected by cyber threats? The following stats may very well change your viewpoint. In our years of working with businesses to improve their cybersecurity, they often think they have appropriate measures in place but in actuality, the policy they have used to protect records and prevent attacks is years out of date. The notion, and details, of data security change all the time and the key is to create a system where employees, and businesses, can adapt to changing circumstances. Understandably, this takes time which is why it is so beneficial for organisations to opt for a managed data security programme with an IT support company, such as Everything Tech.
We’ll own the whole process and ensure that your users and employees have a good understanding of the security measures implemented on their relevant platforms. Working with us allows you to focus on other business goals, such as increasing your presence in your respective industry, safe in the knowledge that a team of experts are taking real-time steps, and implementing cutting-edge processes, to ensure high data security effectiveness.

What Is Data Security?
Data security refers to the protection of all sorts of data from a variety of sources. From cloud data to shared drives, disks and sensitive email chains, anything that contains information will require some form of data security measure. The act of securing data takes many forms and can include things such as access control, the process by which users or a specific administrator determines who in an organisation gets to see certain reports, files or documents. It can also involve data encryption, which prevents unauthorized disclosure of information, misuse and abuse, and, in general, stopping data from falling into the wrong hands.
Virtually all businesses have some sort of online presence and rely on computers, and cloud services, to get their job done. Therefore, they are all, on some level, at risk of falling foul to inefficient security measures. Critical assets, resources, and products are kept on disks, and cloud applications, and no matter what it is that a business finds important, they have an obligation, to employees, or customers, to ensure rigorous risk assessments are undertaken and steps are taken to improve data security.
At Everything Tech, we understand data security at an acute level and have spent years taking the pressure off businesses to become cybersecurity experts. Instead, we’ve just let them get on with what they do best, while we do what we’re great at, managed IT support and data security. As well as implementing security measures, we can also help with a wide range of different business IT functions and managed IT services, such as backup and disaster recovery, staff training, and the ability to integrate the Microsoft Modern Workplace into your daily business operations.
We have had the opportunity to work with businesses in several sectors, from accountants, architects and solicitors, to engineering firms and manufacturing companies. All of them require different approaches and we use our years of collective experience to create bespoke security measures that protect what is important to them. All this makes us confident that we can help you, so, feel free to call us on 0161 826 2220 for more information.
Benefits Of Having Managed Security Services For Your Business
The benefits of having a Manchester-based business helping you with managed security services are plentiful. Not only can you rest easy knowing there’s a team around the corner using their specialist skills and tools to mitigate risk exposure and improve security capabilities, but, you can enjoy other benefits like education and training for your staff.
Managed security services like this are also a great cost-saving exercise. When something goes drastically wrong for businesses and their security processes, like a data breach, it can cost them both time and a whole lot of money to try and recoup things like sensitive data, especially if backup copies aren’t available. It makes much greater financial sense to proactively invest in a team that is going to prevent these sorts of things happening in the first place. As your business expands, so will your security obligations and the need for greater data protection, more thorough security systems and sophisticated storage devices. By working with Everything Tech you can simply increase, or decrease, how much of the managed security service you need from us depending on the state of your business with a quick phone call. Once we’re embedded into your organisation we can be nimble, and take the appropriate action as and when it is needed, after all, you’ve worked hard to grow your business, and you shouldn’t be punished for that by not being able to adapt your security management solutions.
Knowing there is a team looking after your security program allows you to focus on oft-neglected areas of your business. In our experience, businesses feel a great sense of relief handing over their security operation to a group of experts. This peace of mind allows them to grow other parts of the business. Working with a business that knows your security software inside out means that, should something go wrong, they can act quickly. If a business didn’t have managed security services like this they would have to waste precious time searching, contacting, and finding a team to who could fix it. This long-winded process often makes the situation worse and wastes precious minutes and hours.
What Is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a UK government initiative operated by the team at the National Cyber Security Centre. It encourages businesses and organisations to adopt good information security practices. Organisations can achieve two levels of certification, Cyber Essentials, where organisations self-assess their systems which is then independently verified. The second certification is called Cyber Essentials Plus which involves independently testing systems and integrating the standards put forward into the organisation.
In a world where IT security is considered vital, your customers and suppliers want to see that your business has high standards in this area. We can help you implement the technologies required to get you up to scratch, and then get you certified with Cyber Essentials.
In the time that Cyber Essentials has been around, it has quickly become a reputable certification and we encourage all our existing clients who handle customer data, or use IT regularly, to attain this. We can help you by reviewing your current IT systems and put a plan in place to ensure you pass the programme which will not only help you ward off threats, but it will also put you at a competitive advantage against competitors who have not invested in this programme.
We can help ensure you pass first time around and avoid having to invest in the programme again.
