IT companies in Houston are increasingly providing mobile solutions for businesses. There are a number of reasons for this, not least of which is cost-effective convenience. With mobile solutions, you can totally outsource internal technology through a managed service provider (MSP) in a way that, for some, is of the “turnkey” variety. Imagine owning a franchised restaurant that’s turnkey: you pay the setup costs, put your name on it, check in every now and again, and the restaurant manages itself.
Many people do this with fast food chains. Outsourced technology is very similar, especially as concerns mobile solutions. Essentially, you acquire the service, and they cover your needs. Now you can do it all yourself if you’d like. You can buy your own cloud services, apply BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) protocols, and ensure your operational team continuously monitors devices. But to do that well, you’ll need a full team with access to personal tech. Providing budget for that team may ultimately end up offsetting the savings you’re able to acquire from the utilization of mobile solutions through the cloud.
Consider this: third-party applications often come with Trojan viruses designed specifically to sneak onto your cloud network and either steal your data, hold it hostage, or something else that fits the proclivities of hackers. Additionally, there are WiFi options out there which are also designed to harvest information from those who log on for the purposes of hacking. From there, you’ve got those who “spoof” users, stealing their information in order to acquire unauthorized access to your network.
IT companies in Houston provide security solutions which are well-rounded and effective, allowing you to “have your cake and eat it, too”. This is done through:
- Mobile Device Management (MDM)
- Proactive monitoring and Support
- Multi-factor authentication
- Up-to-date antivirus/anti-malware software
