IT Security Services

Small businesses that fail to provide a secure IT set-up face big problems. In the current aggressive financial climate, they can’t afford to risk a catastrophic IT failure and many never recover from a severe security breach and have to close down.

According to Government figures, seven out of 10 companies go out of business because of IT malfunction, which can come in a variety of guises: externally from viruses and unauthorised users, and internally from crashed systems and accidental deletion of files.

ITS offers a range of IT security services tailored to the small business sector to minimise IT security risks. We recognise that smaller companies have neither the time nor the expertise to dedicate to unravelling IT and security problems - their priority and expertise is in running their business and staying productive.

By involving ITS’ security team, we will ensure that your IT infrastructure is reliable and offers peace of mind by:

  • keeping critical business information secure
  • protecting data
  • updating PCs and servers automatically
  • providing IT backup services

According to a survey carried out by Microsoft® and the British Chambers of Commerce, UK small businesses are keen to embrace new technology, but frequently lack the vision that could save time and money. It found that time-constrained owners and senior managers are having to spend a disproportionate amount of time on fixing IT problems associated with security and data storage, as well as searching for files and records.

The survey highlighted:

  • loss of data is considered to be one of the key reasons for business inefficiency, yet half of small business don’t do a daily data backup
  • IT security failures cost two-thirds of the businesses surveyed an estimated £1,259 per annum, yet two-fifths don’t have even basic firewalls installed on their PCs, and over half don’t automatically patch or update all their business PCs.

ITS has launched in the North East and North West of England, a pilot FREE healthcheck of a company’s IT structure, and the opportunity to gain expert security advice.
