With Ransomware Attacks on the Rise, Micro Doctor Keeps Ohio Businesses Safe

Company's managed IT solutions provide proactive protection against ever-evolving security threats and rule out IT problems of many other kinds, Micro Doctor reports

WARREN, Ohio - October 20, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

The average ransomware attack today costs businesses about $133,000, according to a report published by security software developer Sophos. Local managed IT companies like Micro Doctor can save their clients money by protecting them from such threats, while cutting costs in other ways at the same time.

Managed IT services like those described at https://www.microdoctor.com/services-solutions/managed-services/ combine proactive, always-on protection against threats like ransomware with similarly forward-looking support of many other kinds. The managed IT model not only keeps Micro Doctor clients safer from cyber criminals, it allows them to focus with more confidence on the activities that allow them to compete and succeed in general.

"Information technology is too important to consign to a status such that problems are allowed to develop, fester, and disrupt business," said Micro Doctor founder and President Mark Richmond. "This is perhaps most obviously true with regard to digital security, where a single attack can cost a business hundreds of thousands of dollars. In practice, though, every type of IT need is better handled in proactive, strategic fashion. Our managed IT services save our clients money, prevent costly, disruptive downtime, and keep entire networks safe from the latest and most dangerous digital threats."

Businesses needing IT support and services used to incline toward calling for help only when it was most obviously needed. That often proves dangerous today, since recovering from a successful ransomware attack can never be taken for granted.

The old-fashioned, primarily reactive approach to IT support also left too many companies regularly struggling with networks, systems, and applications that were impaired in other ways. Businesses that use Micro Doctor's managed IT services simply avoid problems to begin with.

All these facts make the managed IT model a superior solution for most businesses today. Managed security solutions like those detailed at https://www.microdoctor.com/services-solutions/security/ allow companies to avoid threats that are always evolving and becoming more sophisticated. Managed IT services of other kinds see experienced technicians ruling out the possibility of trouble instead of resolving problems that have already manifested and disrupted business.

In addition to keeping companies safer from increasingly dangerous digital dangers like ransomware, managed IT allows them to leverage technology more effectively and confidently in general. More information about the difference that managed IT can make is available at https://www.microdoctor.com/, where visitors can easily schedule a free consultation.
