Teleco Helps Customers Enhance Network Security Through Managed IT Services

Proactive Approach to IT Enables Local Businesses to Combat Threats

THUNDER BAY, ON — November 28, 2023 — TELECO, a leading managed technology services provider, announced today that its proactive approach to managed services enhances security and helps companies combat malicious threats. Fortune 1000 organizations have plenty of  budget available to spend on IT security infrastructure. They are fully equipped with in-house staff that is dedicated full-time to optimizing security across the board. While the necessity for IT  security is in plain sight, many small to mid-sized companies may ignore this area of their  business until it’s too late.  TELECO’s managed IT services provides proactive resources to business owners everywhere. The company zeroes in on five key areas to focus on, to dramatically improve the health of their customers’ technology.

In its purest form, TELECO’s managed IT services anticipate IT issues before they crop up. It’s a proactive and cost effective approach that has changed the way businesses improve their productivity, streamline their efficiency and keep their critical information safe. This approach enables business owners to stay focused on their core competencies, instead of trying to understand the complexities of IT networks. There are five critical areas where TELECO leverages their proactive approach to enhance security.

1) Anti-virus/Anti-Malware

Most viruses spread so fast because they are delivered in the simplest ways. Viruses are usually deployed through email, software downloads or phishing sites. TELECO provides regularly updates virus protection so the latest threats can be combatted.

2) Data Backup

If you’ve ever lost your data, your presentation or a file went missing, you’ve felt the sting of a lacking data backup program. While most businesses have partial backups in place, TELECO provides companies with cloud based business continuity and disaster recovery programs in order to eliminate this problem from their IT landscape.

3) Software Updates

If you’ve ever snoozed a security update, you’ve potentially put your company at risk for greater harm. TELECO‘s team of technicians work around the clock to instantaneously and continuously update software so customers are always on the latest version.

4) Unauthorized Users

Keeping unauthorized users out – of buildings, software programs and internal networks – is another vital component for a comprehensive data protection program. Leaving these areas unprotected is irresponsible as leaving your doors unlocked at night. TELECO monitors activity constantly and works with customers to provide access  to necessary employees.

5) Cloud & Mobile Security

Virtually every business in today’s marketplace relies on some form of cloud-based technology or mobile phones. Each one of these pose a potential threat to the network and create vulnerability for the network, especially if left ignored. Teleco monitors personal devices to protect  against threats entering the network taking mobile security and cyber security to another level.

“When an organization takes the time to assess these areas of their business, it’s very easy to dramatically improve the health of their technology,” said Penny Belluz, Director of Operations of TELECO. “We are very well versed  in these areas and can bring years  of expertise and experience to the table. The modern organization can simply not afford to ignore these areas of their business any longer and by partnering with us we can prevent a catastrophic event.”
