Partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) that focuses on IT security can bolster your cybersecurity defences. This is especially true when it comes to end user error. All the tools and solutions in the world won’t protect your business from every attack. Human error is still highly dangerous, and many employees grow complacent at some point as they fail to follow best practices.
An MSP that offers mobile device management (MDM) can be very helpful in deploying automatic and remote device-locate and device-wipe services in cases where mobile devices are lost or stolen.
MSPs also offer antimalware and antivirus solutions to keep data on mobile devices as well as desktops protected.
Partnering with an MSP makes sense because they serve as a backup for proactively preventing security leaks that employees might cause and mitigating damage when a leak occurs. Here’s a sampling of the benefits a mobile device management MSP can provide:
Viruses can also do serious harm to information, so consider MSPs that offer Webroot for complete endpoint management. The technology scans downloaded apps and devices for any threats. Equipped with Internet security, this defence provides a heads-up if it detects any malicious activity from the device browser.
