While the word security, when used in relation to computers and information technology, tends to call to mind antivirus software and firewalls, there is a distinct lack of emphasis that seems to be placed on internal security. Internal security refers to the protection of your servers and networks from unauthorized access through backdoor or other such attacks.
The importance of this lies in preserving the security and integrity of confidential and otherwise important documents and data that are vital to the operation of your business. For example, a doctor’s office that stores patient information electronically must invest in a high level of IT security in order to protect that sensitive information, because unauthorized access to those documents would effectively shut down their entire practice.
One way that some IT service providers essentially lock their clients in to their service is by failing to share vital information like system account logins and withholding administrative network access. When you discontinue your service with such companies, it is important to ensure that you have recovered control of all passwords and accounts in order to maintain an appropriate level of internal security.
At GeekTek, we specialize in helping your company recover from past experiences with these substandard IT service providers. In addition to backing up the information on your servers to prevent data loss, we perform security audits of your servers and desktops to verify their integrity. We also believe in maintaining transparency in our service and will provide you with complete access to every one of your accounts.
