Complex IT systems help improve business efficiencies, but our growing reliance on them means bigger disruptions if those systems go down. These disruptions can lead to lost sales, lost data, and even threaten the future of the company. For New York IT consultant CompCiti Business Solutions, Inc., the answer is quite simple: monitor and maintain your systems before something goes wrong.
“Any number of things can shut down your systems and bring your business to a screeching halt: faulty network equipment, full databases, hacks and attacks, viruses, even floods and fires,” said Sam Vohra, Vice President and co-founder of CompCiti. “CompCiti provides fixed-rate maintenance packages that greatly reduce the likelihood of system crashes by monitoring your systems, backing up your data, and fixing problems before they become catastrophic.”
If anyone knows about maintaining systems, it’s Vohra. He co-founded CompCiti as an IT consultant in New York in 1996, about the time that business networking began. Since then, CompCiti has grown to meet the expanding needs of its clients including hardware and software services, managed IT services, network planning, disaster recovery and business continuity (DRBC), IT staffing, and VoIP.
Perhaps the biggest indication of the changing business networking landscape is CompCiti’s emphasis on cybersecurity today.
“Cybersecurity is more important than ever,” Vohra said. “I would say that the biggest threats to any system are from the outside – hackers and other cyber criminals who want to steal data or take over systems.”
The costs of cyber attacks can be quite high. For example, ransomware can lock up an organization’s computer systems unless a ransom of thousands or potentially millions of dollars is paid. Even more money is lost due to the disruption itself, which could amount to days of lost productivity.
“Smaller companies believe it’s only the bigger companies that are targeted, but that’s simply not true. In fact, many cyber criminals target smaller ones on purpose because they are more likely to have holes in their security systems that they can exploit. As any IT consultant in New York will tell you, the payouts are smaller, but the success rate is higher and the risk of getting caught is much, much lower,” Vohra said.
Cybersecurity is part of a well-rounded maintenance plan that will help reduce the risk of downtime and increase an organization’s overall efficiency.
