TeamLogic IT’s Data Security Solutions Attract And Retain Clients
Even the most advanced physical and cloud computing systems can be hacked, but knowing how and when to protect data reduces risk
When CompTIA held its recent annual member meeting, there were plenty of panel discussions and workshops on data security. They were packed, but luckily for TeamLogic IT franchise owners, all the latest information and best practices were being absorbed for their benefit.
“I have been involved with the organization for many years and sit on their public advocacy panel,” says Chuck Lennon, President of TeamLogic IT. “We always make sure we have a presence at meetings like this, and any other major ‘gathering of the minds’ in the IT world. It’s a huge benefit to our franchise owners, who are busy with clients and can’t always get away.”
Security moves to the forefront
At this event and many others in the past couple of years, data safety and security have been the No. 1 topic of discussion, Chuck says.
“People are turning to us for a solution, but they also want advice and direction, not just a recommendation,” Chuck says. “If you are busy running your business, the last thing you want to think about is data security, but these days that’s all you’re thinking about because it’s all over the news every time another major retailer or health-care system is hacked and that information is stolen. It’s top of mind these days. Our clients know how important their data security is, but they don’t know where to start. We show them all the options and then work with them to tailor a solution that meets their needs.”
More resources, more experience
Because of the complexity around data storage and security, having an expert is essential. Here, too, TeamLogic IT’s depth of talent by way of its national network of IT experts is an instant differentiator in the field. Small and medium-size businesses relying on an outside vendor are fast becoming aware that a single-person shop can’t keep up with the changes, and that an in-house person is just as likely to be overwhelmed. Either situation puts sensitive data at risk.
“The basic IT guy doesn’t have a clue,” Chuck says. “They’re not attending these think-tank sessions, all these strategic meetings that I and our other senior staff attend on behalf of our franchise owners. We have access to a lot of information, and we have forged solid partnerships with all the key suppliers to ensure that the solutions we are providing are absolutely top-notch, today and tomorrow.”
