Why Businesses Need Managed Security Services

Published On: January 18th, 2024

If you’ve ever wondered about managed IT services, specifically security services for your business, you probably understand that organizations have tons of sensitive information on their systems. Whether it is Protected Health Information (PHI), social security information, addresses, or credit card information, each business has a responsibility to ensure private information is kept secure. To deal with this issue, many businesses seek out the assistance of a reputable managed IT service provider.

Security Threats and Using a Managed Service Provider

Every day, businesses are faced with various challenges relating to security. Managed Service Providers (MSP) aim to provide solutions that protect organizations from these threats via a subscription-model package. Our team develops a tailored approach for each business, depending on their situation, like what type of data they handle, the size of their operations, and industry specific requirements. Managed IT services are especially useful if an entity is subject to certain compliance requirements like HIPAA, because they are knowledgeable about which products and services meet those needs. Since these managed services are handled entirely by an outside IT company, the business doesn’t need to worry about maintenance or any modifications to a system. Whether it’s the latest technology that prevents viruses, phishing protection that keeps cybercriminals from gaining sensitive data, or VPNs to send secure communication; Pittsburgh Computer Solutions (PCS) keeps your organization secure and productive.

PCS utilizes real-time network monitoring to know what is going on in a system within seconds.

A good provider also equips their clients with detailed reports that help them understand their infrastructure so they can stay ahead of cyber threats. Effective network monitoring enables the provider to efficiently detect unusual activities, and in the event of a security breach, they should provide a rapid response. Acting swiftly and effectively is a must to minimize damage to an organization.  Contact PCS today at (724)942-1337 so we can understand your business and provide you with information on safeguarding your company before it’s too late.
