The advent of technology has brought tremendous convenience in our ability to access data for personal and business needs. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is often a requirement to conduct business in situations where contractors, consultants and personnel from other offices are collaborating. The need for outside personnel to access corporate networks and intellectual property is often key to successfully achieving goals and completing projects.
This convenience is double-edged in that it has also introduced many security concerns on both the individual and corporate level. Allowing external personnel to access company networks and devices brings an increased need for vigilance against many potential security violations. The damage caused by malware is in the billions of dollars annually worldwide.
At iTecs, we secure networks based on a company’s culture and preferred level of security; however, we prefer to follow best IT practices. iTecs believes that devices that are not managed by our team of network administrators and technicians should never be allowed to access your business’s network. If your company is in need of qualified IT security professionals, or if you simply want to consult and verify your corporate IT security infrastructure, please contact us.
In recent years, the reliance on technology in both personal and professional settings has grown exponentially. With this increase in dependence, issues with big tech companies such as Microsoft and their Office 365 platform have become more prominent. Outages on these platforms can have a significant impact on individuals and businesses worldwide, leading to lost productivity and revenue.
