It’s tempting to save some money now by ignoring IT support until you really need it.
We understand the logic at work here: why waste money on support when everything seems to be working fine?
But this approach will only save you money in the short-term. Eventually you’ll find yourself regretting your decision for not having pursued a more proactive solution when you had the chance.
Imagine this scenario: every time it rains water leaks through your roof and drips all over your nice carpet. You could take the reactionary approach and get some buckets to catch the water, or you could start Googling local contractors and find someone who can fix the underlying problem and repair your roof.
Okay, we’ll admit, the leaky roof metaphor is a little simplistic. Anybody would rather repair an old and failing roof rather than wait around for it to cave in… the problem, of course, is that the cost of roof repair is a lot more than picking up a couple buckets at WalMart.
Don’t let the cost of IT support scare you away from ongoing maintenance. After all, you don’t have to hire a bunch of $50,000/year IT workers and a $100,000+ CIO to get the support you need. The managed services offered by Sensible Systems provide, mostly remotely, all the services you’d get with your own in-house IT department, all at a monthly flat rate that’s less than the cost of a single full-time employee.
Besides, the cost of not maintaining your infrastructure is far greater:
Over 300 million new pieces of malware were created in 2014
80% of malware attack are entirely unique, rendering signature-based antivirus software all but useless
If a cyberattack results in data loss, the recovery process will end up costing you an average of $150 per compromised file, and it’s rare for anything less than thousands of files to be compromised in a single attack
That cost is too much for most businesses to bear, as 55% of small to medium-sized businesses close within just 6 months of losing significant data as a result of an online security breach
Without regular assessments and the help of a true IT security expert, you’re vulnerable to the millions of web-based threats that are floating around out there, and all it takes is one particularly nasty virus to shut you down for good.
Fix your roof before it all comes crashing down.
Get the support you need before it’s too late.
