We like the idea of safety.

Consider that you are told not to leave valuables in plain sight and to lock your vehicle when you leave. You don’t go to the shopping mall and leave your wallet on the dashboard, laptop in the back seat and windows rolled down, right? You know this is an open invitation for some unsavory character to take your valuables. So, why do this with your computers and customer data?

We talk to a lot of busy professionals and have noticed that many are ignoring the threats to their systems and client information. We see machines with no antivirus protection, running with full admin rights and browsing the web without any filters. That is an invitation to disaster….oh, we forgot to mention… NO BACKUPS!

It is all preventable with simple tools.

All too often, we receive calls from people who were hacked, got their files encrypted and need to pay the ransom.

“We cannot recommend Luis and his team highly enough."

“Not only are they quick to respond to, and fix, a problem, but their fees are very reasonable. We do not trust anyone else with our IT security. We consider The Critical Update to be our IT business partner!”

Stephanie W. Co-founder WorkplaceFactfinders.com

We know that every single business that uses computers and is connected to the Internet is vulnerable to attacks from hackers, viruses and other threats. A news story from 2016 documents how one hacker found thousands of machines, some with patient information and other sensitive data completely OPEN to anyone running a simple port scan: Hacker Port Scan Article.

When we ask business owners their reaction if their company name showed up on the six o’clock news after finding out that client information was compromised, everyone shows grave concern…but what we keep finding is that most people freeze and hope for the best. So nothing is done and the threat remains. 

 

"Luis and his team are very professional"

in assisting in boo-boo moments.”

Experts recommend the following to increase security and prevent breaches:

  • An anti-virus license with advanced end-point protection and team to manage it.
  • An anti-malware license – and back office team to manage it.
  • Health monitoring of your hard drive, performance, and an inventory of installed software. – to alert us when your drive is about to fail and to use for your technology inventory.
  • Patch management – to prevent viruses like the Petya from hitting your systems. Our team tests patches and then deploys them to our managed systems to help reduce the chance of an update affecting your system.
  • Logmein Pro license – included for remote access and file transfer for those who work from home and have systems in the office. Many professionals have need to access systems remotely.
  • Web filter on each managed computer – to help reduce phishing attacks and block malicious traffic.
  • Security Awareness Training – this is by far the most valuable investment any business owner can make to teach users how to protect client information. This has an additional feature where you can get up to $100K breach insurance.

We have seen the impact of ransomware and how costly it is to recover from an incident and would like for you to have some peace of mind. After all, you are the key to making everything work in your business and I bet being the techie was not exactly your dream job. So we are asking you to let us take cyber security off your plate and handle it for you.

"The Critical Update is a technology firm you can trust

from the character of its people to their knowledge and performance. I had an issue pop up with my business laptop which left it inoperable, and thus would have left me inoperable the next business day. The Critical Update team evaluated and fixed my laptop the same day, and I haven’t had any problems since!”
