The Five Foundation Services of Managed IT

IT Security

IT Security can be defined as the technology, processes, training and best practices designed to protect and recover internet-connected systems including networks, devices, programs and data from cyberattacks, damage or unauthorized access. The goal of Adept’s security program is to protect and defend your intellectual and confidential assets.

As you can see in the graph below, the services list is longest in this category. Why are there so many different kinds of security protections? Because there are so many points of entry avilable to hackers. Each service plays a key part in protecting your data, which in turn can protect your business from liability, financial loss and ruined reputation.
