TeamLogic IT Security Monitoring Alerts Can Save Businesses
Safeguards allow for early detection of breaches, limiting downtime and damage as well as negative financial impact
Better safe than sorry is an old saying, but it’s one that rings very true when it comes to preventing data breaches and business-operations interruption. That’s why every TeamLogic IT franchise has a strong suite of programs and services built around system security.
“We have really ramped up our security offerings in the past couple of years,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “That’s in part due to the maturation of the goods and services market around cybersecurity, but also because of the rise in threats to businesses of every size, not just major corporations and other large players.”
Medical facility breach detected early
A TeamLogic IT franchise client in Georgia recently learned just how valuable their protection services were when a security breach exposed about 16,000 sets of patient records. Ransomware had made its way onto the medical facility’s servers and was uncovered by a routine check by the TeamLogic IT team.
“Thanks to the franchise’s monitoring, the issue was discovered quickly,” Lennon says. “Work is continuing by the client to enhance its internal procedures to train staffers on security issues such as phishing attacks, as well as the need to update and upgrade systems. Had the breach not been found right away, the potential for highly sensitive patient information to be stolen on an ongoing basis was huge.”
Security protocols require constant monitoring
Installing antivirus and monitoring software may have been enough in the past, but savvier hackers require a more vigilant counter-presence. That’s where TeamLogic IT comes in with invaluable assistance.
“Businesses are there to serve a specific purpose and need, and not spend all their time worrying about data security,” Lennon explains. “They need a partner who can assure them that their data is safe, and that they will not suffer the negative consequences of a breach or shutdown. That’s what a TeamLogic IT franchise is created to do. Our ability to monitor now, as well as be on guard for future risks while deploying the latest safeguards, are reasons TeamLogic IT is growing as rapidly as we are.”
