☁️ Often C-Level Executives and IT Leaders struggle with the ability to create a stable and secure cloud platform to avoid significant downtime, which can both compromise your clients and profitability.

➤ There are 5 significant security breaches that cause downtime:

➊ Malicious emails being opened by an employee which can compromise data and identity.
➋ Off the shelf firewall and anti-virus software that is not monitored or up to date creates a high-risk of security breaches.
➌ Lack of control of the company’s IT assets due to lack of monitoring and consistent maintenance often results in slow performance and significant downtime.
➍ The core of every business is data back-up and continuity - many companies go out of business because they don’t have a tested continuity plan.
➎ Many businesses do not have proper documentation for their IT department, because all the information lives in the mind of your IT director… What happens if (s)he quits?

CloudDesk365 is a turnkey, one-click solution that ensures companies will be running a secure, world-class, scalable IT solution tailored to your environment.

➤ If you are at risk of a security breach or are not quite sure if you are compliant, I invite you to have a conversation. Whether or not we decide to work together, I am confident I can provide some insights to where you have gaps or may be vulnerable to a security breach.
