Protect Your Business
Cybersecurity risk may be old news but highly abstract to SMBs leadership. It was reported that in 2020 there was a 424% increase in new small business cyber breaches last year.
SMBs are especially vulnerable to cybersecurity threats because their IT team (whether inside or outsourced) is totally reactive, has very limited expertise, and utterly lacks the process necessary to comprehensively expose cybersecurity risks to senior executives. When a business does not adequately protect its sensitive data, it can lose its reputation, employees, customers, and even its entire operation.
Partner with Ascent Data
Our commitment at Ascent Data is to protect small and medium-sized businesses from cyberattacks with the best Managed IT Services in the region. We have created thorough standards and processes for assessing and managing technology-driven risk so you can relax knowing that you’ve done everything you can to protect your business.
How Ascent Data Protects Your Business
When it comes to cybersecurity for businesses, relying on antivirus and firewall software alone isn’t enough to guarantee protection and recovery in the event of a cyberattack. At Ascent Data, we approach small business cybersecurity from three different angles for maximum protection with our Managed IT Services, Managed Cloud Services, and our secure Data Center.
Our Managed IT Services
Every IT provider says they have great support that will jump on and resolve issues quickly. The problem is that “quickly” is most often too late, after the consequences of the exploit have already manifested.
Sure, our Managed IT Services include 24/7/365 support staff on-site at our Network Operations Center to ensure that we resolve all issues quickly and prevent interruptions to your business. Our true focus, however, is on being proactive about your security.
Therefore, we built our standards and refined our processes to identify and expose IT-driven risk before there is an issue. It is the ONLY way to proactively work with clients to develop effective, custom-made cybersecurity solutions.
By anticipating and preparing for as many potential risks as possible, we can protect your business from cyber threats far better than any reactive solution.
Our Managed Cloud Services
Too many SMBs who could profitably leverage a Cloud solution still don’t have one because they lack the Cloud engineering expertise to make it happen. From a cybersecurity perspective, a Cloud solution is often the best, most secure way to protect your business.
Comprehensive cybersecurity means leaving nothing to chance, which is why we built our own data center. This allows us to implement the latest updates in cybersecurity rather than relying on someone else who may not be working to the standards that we expect.
Our Managed Cloud Services are fully customizable and transparent so that you can prioritize mobility, flexibility, disaster recovery, loss prevention, or any other aspect of our cloud hosting service.
For Cloud Migration, we work closely with you to find the safest and most efficient way to move your business to the cloud.
We know that many SMBs do not have a dedicated IT department, and external vendors often lack the Cloud expertise to design and implement an appropriate solution. Ascent Data can step in to provide a managed Cloud solution that achieves your goals and priorities.
Our Secure Data Center
Often, the least secure option is to keep your servers on premise. There is just too much exposure to internal and external risk.
Our SOC2 Type 2 audited data center provides a great option for SMBs that want the security of a commercial data center and a relationship and dialog with the senior leadership of the provider. At Ascent Data you get triple security — the security of a state-of-the-art audited data center, the security of a 100% uptime guarantee, and the security of knowing the people who run your data center in case you need their help.
We Are With You Every Step Of The Way
With SMB cybersecurity, we are not interested in just selling you a product. Our mission is to turn technology into value for our clients, which is why we devote ourselves to working side-by-side in partnership with you to ensure that you receive custom-designed cybersecurity services that will protect your business into the future.
If your SMB doesn’t have its own in-house IT professionals, we can step in and fill that gap for you. We want to share our experience and knowledge so that you never miss out on an opportunity to protect your business from cyberattacks and data loss.
