Cloud:

By now, we know that cloud outsourcing is inevitable. Whether you’ve already moved to the cloud, or plan on moving soon, the most important thing is that you have the appropriate layers of security to ensure your sensitive data and information is protected.

  • Ultimately, you’re looking for a single, secure and seamless solution on any cloud path your firm selects.

  • If you aren’t sure which cloud model is the best fit for your firm, you can bring in a consultant (hint: think Eze!) to help you choose which model is best for your firm specifically.

Security First Approach

Again, whichever model you choose, taking a security-first approach is the key to success in 2019. With potential threats such as malware, social engineering, external hacking, and insider data leakage/theft, mobile device theft and physical security attacks, it's critical to have an up-to-date understanding of the threat landscape to protect what your valuable data and implement the appropriate layers of security.

A security-first approach requires different components in order to create a secure foundation to operate a company such as:

  • Multi-factor Authentication

  • Email Security Components

  • Web Filtering

  • Access Auditing

  • Cybersecurity/Advance Security Measures

  • Employee Security Training

Importance of Support

Don’t underestimate the importance of support! When evaluating Managed Service Providers, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Will you receive high-touch, one-on-one support?

  • Does your provider understand your business/industry and specific requirements?

  • Will your cloud provider be able to deploy on-site engineers to your office?

  • Are you comfortable with the level of control your MSP will have over your environment?
