SA IT Services – Leveraging robust managed services that fully satisfy clients' pain points and put them ahead of the curve
The Silicon Review
Still relying on your in-house IT team to maintain your systems? It might be time for a change. Technology has come a long way since the days of break/fix IT, and the reality is that most internal IT services aren’t equipped to keep up with the pace of innovation. As a result, many organizations find their IT to be reactive rather than proactive, and their systems struggle to keep up with the demands of a growing business in a digital world. If you’ve ever scoffed at the idea of outsourcing support to a third-party provider because you think your current IT structure is fine or because of concerns about cost, now is the time to reconsider. Managed Services is back in style, for good reason. What started in the 90’s as a solution for Break/Fix IT, Managed Services is rapidly re-emerging as an integral solution for companies looking to stay ahead of the curve in adopting and maintaining new technologies.

One-Stop-Shop for All Your Managed IT Needs
Security Device Management Services: It provides organizations with full maintenance, updates, rule changes, tuning and 24/7 monitoring by their security experts. Clients are able to leverage their current technology investment, using leading security vendors. Security devices such as firewalls, next generation firewalls and endpoint security solutions must be properly provisioned, updated and patched to protect against internal and external threats. Policies, signatures and rules need to be updated and maintained to ensure accessibility, provide security and to comply with regulations. Security best practices and many regulations also require continuous monitoring to detect and respond to threats. Managing security devices, however, requires a specialized skill set and constant attention. Keeping these solutions updated and patched while monitoring them 24/7 is a challenge for many organizations. SA reduces that burden for clients with monitoring and management solutions that provide updates, tuning and 24/7 monitoring by their security experts.
Data Back-Up and Recovery: The Business Continuity Plan may be written for a specific business process or may address all mission-critical business processes. The BCP is an umbrella plan whose major sub-components include the Disaster Recovery Plan. Information systems are considered in the BCP only in terms of their support of those business processes. SA IT Services' Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is to restore the operability of systems that support mission-critical and critical business processes. Having a DRP in place reduces the risk that the length of time that a disruption in a business process does not go beyond what has been determined to be acceptable by management in the organization. During the recovery phase, the focus is on establishing controls over occurring events to limit the risk of any additional losses.
