Managed IT Services in Austin

Contigo provides managed IT to companies throughout Austin and Central Texas. When you work with us, we want you to feel confident that your servers, devices and networks are secured. To do this, our managed IT services include security solutions such as malware protection, encryption, cybersecurity training and network forensics.

Take a closer look at the managed services we provide Austin-based companies:
 

Malware Protection

Malware infects computers, installing malicious programs that compromise your system. Ransomware is a form of malware that actually locks a user out of their device.

In 2019, a study found that 53% of organizations experienced a ransomware attack that led to at least a partial disruption of business operations. Unfortunately, those companies likely also experienced a drop in their sales, a loss of consumer trust, and a decrease in productivity while the malware was being eliminated from their network. At Contigo, we will detect and remove malware on all systems. In addition, We provide instant scanning of end users’ systems to prevent malware and nefarious websites from infecting your network.

Anti-Virus

Antivirus protection is an integral part of cybersecurity for all types of enterprises. In September 2019 alone, there were 17.7 million virus-ridden programs detected. With this alarming statistic, it makes sense that many businesses are prioritizing keeping sensitive data safe and sound. With Contigo’s managed security services, you will receive our award-winning antivirus solution on all of your devices. We will also continually remove any malicious code, giving your network an added layer of security.

Network Forensics

Contigo provides you with visibility into how your guests and end users utilize your bandwidth. This insight can help you monitor any suspicious activity and can help you to identify any areas that may need to be addressed. For example, if you have any protocols in place prohibiting the use of social media at the office, we are able to prioritize mission critical applications over recreational ones and report any activity that involves the use of social media sites. This can help to increase productivity and reduce the chances of accidentally acquiring viruses, malware, and more through recreational applications.

Encryption

Encryption scrambles data so that it can’t be deciphered if a third party intercepts it.

Cyber security experts have found that only about 4% of private data is protected by encryption. This is a startlingly low number, as encryption is the best last line of defense a company can implement to protect its sensitive information. Small and large firms alike should be harnessing the power of encryption to ensure that their network is completely secure.

As part of our managed security services, we fully encrypt all of your private data across multiple devices, including PCs, tablets, and smartphones. We encrypt data when it’s at rest on your systems or in transit from one point to the next.

Cyber Security Training

71% of businesses experience malware activity that is easily spread from employee to employee. This can exacerbate the losses incurred while trying to remedy the cyberattack and can often be attributed to a lack of proper training.

With Contigo’s cybersecurity training services, we continuously train users on the dos and don’ts of opening emails. This prevents easily avoidable and potentially costly mistakes that can lead to compromised data.

24/7 Monitoring

Having great security solutions in place is only half the battle. Cyberattacks can occur when you least expect them to. Having a team of IT experts constantly watching out for online threats will leave you feeling confident that your firm’s data is adequately protected. That is why our staff monitors the tools used throughout our managed security solutions and responds to alerts 24/7. We keep tabs on your servers, devices and networks.
