What is Managed IT? What Can ProDesk Do For You?

Technology plays a pivotal role in the success of businesses. As companies strive to stay competitive and agile, the need for a well-functioning robust IT infrastructure becomes paramount. This is where Managed IT Services step in, offering a comprehensive solution to enhance operational efficiency, streamline processes, and drive innovation- while enabling companies to focus on their primary business objective, not their IT.

What is Managed IT/ Managed Service Provider?

Outsourcing the management, maintenance, and support of an organization’s IT infrastructure to a specialized service provider. This encompasses a wide range of IT functions, from network monitoring and cybersecurity to data backup and software updates. By partnering with a Managed IT Services provider, businesses can focus on their core competencies while leaving the complex IT management tasks to experts.

1. Proactive Maintenance and Support

One of the key advantages of Managed IT Services is the proactive approach to maintaining your IT environment. Instead of waiting for issues to arise, Managed IT providers monitor your systems around the clock, detecting and resolving potential problems before they disrupt your operations. This approach minimizes downtime, maximizes uptime, and ensures that your technology is always functioning optimally.

2. Cost Efficiency

Managing an in-house IT department can be a significant financial burden. The costs associated with hiring, training, and retaining skilled IT professionals, along with the expenses of hardware and software procurement, can quickly add up. Managed IT Services offer a cost-effective alternative by providing a team of experts for a predictable monthly fee. This eliminates the need for capital expenditures and allows businesses to allocate resources strategically.

3. Enhanced Cybersecurity

Cyber threats are a constant concern in today’s digital landscape. Rolle IT specializes in cybersecurity, implementing robust measures to safeguard your sensitive data and systems.

Whether you’re expanding your workforce, adding new locations, or launching innovative projects, Rolle IT can swiftly adapt to your evolving needs.

5. Focus on Core Business Goals

With IT management off your plate, your internal teams can direct their focus and energy toward core business objectives. This enhanced concentration on strategic initiatives can drive innovation, improve customer experiences, and ultimately lead to higher profitability.

6. Access to Expertise

As a Software and Data Management provider to federal projects, Rolle IT boasts a team of highly skilled professionals with diverse expertise. From networking and cloud computing to software development and compliance, these experts bring a wealth of knowledge to the table. This access to specialized skills can be especially beneficial for businesses that lack the resources to hire such a versatile in-house team.

7. Disaster Recovery and Data Backup

Data loss due to hardware failures, cyberattacks, or natural disasters can be catastrophic for any business. Rolle IT Prodesk Managed IT Services include robust disaster recovery and data backup strategies to ensure that your critical data is protected and can be swiftly restored in the event of a catastrophe.

What is Tier 3 Response Capabilities, and why do you need it?

Tier 3 Helpdesk response involves addressing the most complex and challenging technical issues, requiring advanced expertise, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. Tier three technicians play a critical role in maintaining the functionality and stability of an organization’s IT systems and infrastructure.

As a Managed Services provider, Rolle IT has the in-house ability to respond quickly and seamlessly to escalations needing expert response.

Tier 3 Helpdesk response refers to a specialized level of technical support that deals with complex and escalated issues that cannot be resolved by lower-tier support teams. In a typical IT support structure, helpdesk support is organized into multiple tiers, with each tier handling different levels of technical difficulty.

Tier 3 Helpdesk response involves addressing advanced technical problems that require in-depth expertise, specialized knowledge, and often collaboration with other departments or teams. Here’s what you can expect from a Tier 3 Helpdesk response:

  1. Complex Issue Resolution: Tier 3 technicians handle issues that are more intricate and challenging to resolve. These problems usually involve in-depth troubleshooting, research, and analysis. They might pertain to intricate software or hardware configurations, network architecture, security breaches, system integrations, and other advanced technical areas.
  2. Expert Knowledge: Tier 3 technicians are subject matter experts with a deep understanding of the products, systems, and technologies they support. They possess advanced knowledge and are proficient in the technical intricacies of the organization’s infrastructure.
  3. Escalation Point: When an issue cannot be resolved by Tier 1 or Tier 2 support teams, it is escalated to Tier 3. Tier 3 technicians are the highest level of support within the helpdesk structure and are responsible for tackling the most challenging cases.
  4. Collaboration and Coordination: Resolving complex issues often requires collaboration with other departments, such as development, engineering, or network operations. Tier 3 technicians may need to coordinate efforts to diagnose and resolve issues that span different areas of expertise.
  5. Root Cause Analysis: Tier 3 technicians focus not only on resolving immediate issues but also on identifying the root causes behind recurring or complex problems. This involves a thorough investigation to prevent similar issues from arising in the future.
  6. Documentation: Detailed documentation is crucial in Tier 3 support. Technicians document the steps taken to diagnose and resolve issues, which helps create a knowledge base for future reference and training purposes.
  7. Customer Communication: Tier 3 technicians often interact directly with customers or end-users to provide updates, explanations, and solutions. Effective communication skills are essential in managing user expectations and conveying complex technical information in a clear manner.
  8. Continuous Improvement: Tier 3 support plays a role in improving the overall support process. By identifying patterns in escalated issues and proposing solutions to streamline support workflows, they contribute to enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the helpdesk.

Rolle IT, as DevSecOps IT firm, has in house Tier 3 support, ready for all of our clients should the need arise.

Data Security for Law Firms

Rolle IT serves many small and medium size law firms: We understand that as a law firm, protecting client data is of utmost importance. Here is a basic list of security and technology measures that firms of all size should be implementing.

Access control: Limit access to sensitive data to only those who need it. Implement strong password policies, two-factor authentication, and access controls to prevent unauthorized access.

Best Practices, Policies and Procedures: Consulting with an IT and Cybersecurity expert to craft policies and procedures that are inline with your organization’s needs.

Encryption: Encrypt all sensitive data in transit and at rest. This will prevent unauthorized access to data even if it is intercepted or stolen.

Backups and disaster recovery: Regularly backup data and have a disaster recovery plan in place in case of any natural disasters, cyber attacks or data breaches. Rolle IT recommends a comprehensive back up plan.

Secure communications: Use secure communication channels such as secure email and messaging platforms to communicate with clients and colleagues. Not all email platforms are secure.

Anti-virus and anti-malware: Install and regularly update anti-virus and anti-malware software to protect against malware and viruses that can compromise data security.

Proactive Employee training: Train employees on data security best practices, including how to identify and report suspicious activity and how to avoid common data security risks.

Physical security: Implement physical security measures to protect against unauthorized access to physical data storage devices such as hard drives, servers, and backups. Physical security assessments as well as digital security assessments should be part of ongoing data security awareness training.

Vendor management: Vet and manage third-party vendors and service providers who handle sensitive data on behalf of the law firm.

Data enablement– Having secure documents easy to find for the right user.

Overall, a law firm should have a comprehensive data security program that includes policies, procedures, and technical measures to protect client data.

Here are some things a law firm should look for in an IT company:

Expertise: Look for an IT company that has experience working with law firms and understands the unique challenges and requirements of the legal industry.

Security: The IT company should have expertise in data security and should be able to provide the necessary measures to ensure that the law firm’s data is protected.

Support: The IT company should offer fast and reliable technical support, and have a help desk that is available 24/7 in case of emergencies.

Scalability: The IT company should be able to scale its services as the law firm grows and its technology needs change.

Backup and disaster recovery: The IT company should provide backup and disaster recovery services to ensure that the law firm’s data is protected in case of a natural disaster, cyber attack, or data breach.

Cloud services: The IT company should be able to provide cloud services that can allow lawyers to work remotely and access data from anywhere.

Compliance: The IT company should be knowledgeable about the legal industry’s compliance requirements, such as those related to data privacy and confidentiality.

Cost-effectiveness: The IT company should offer cost-effective solutions that meet the law firm’s needs without breaking the bank.

Overall, a law firm needs an IT company that can provide reliable and secure technology services, and that can work collaboratively with the law firm to help it achieve its goals.

5 Ways a MSP Will Benefit Your Business

Originally Posted by Aimee Iorio. A Managed Service Provider (MSP) remotely manages your business’ IT needs to save you time and money. Services offered can include network security, 24/7 remote monitoring, backups, updates, and will be curated for your business or project. By outsourcing this work to an IT company, you can rest assured that data breaches or hacks are mitigated.  

1. The Amount of Time and Money Spent on Managing Your Own System

Managing your business’ infrastructure is a complex and time-consuming undertaking. The time you spend managing your technology limits the time you have to use the skills you possess to increase the company’s value. A technology expert is required to be fully effective in protecting your business’ assets. Acquiring an expert of your own is a costly job position to fill and can still be limiting. A MSP ensures all technology is running smoothly; increasing the efficiency of your employees and when there is an issue the turnaround time is fast. Managed service providers can replace the need for an IT department, saving thousands of dollars a year. Time is valuable; leave it up to a team of experts to take care of your technology needs.

2. Customized Services to Fit Your Needs

One of the greatest features of having a managed IT service is that it gives your business the resources of a complete IT department. Your business may need a variety of services or only one or two. Curating a set of services to be the most beneficial for your business is important to increase the efficiency and productivity of your business. Every business will have a different set of needs and these needs will change with company growth; a MSP will be their every step of the way.

3. Reduced Downtime

Downtime, due to technology issues and errors, equates to loss of money. Updates, bugs, and viruses can cause complete loss of productivity for hours or even up to days. A MSP ensures updates are done after business hours and security checks are done as frequently as requested to avoid any downtime. If a problem does arise, they are fixed quickly so you can be back to doing what you do best.

4. Knowing Your Information and Assets are Protected

Ensuring your confidential information and assets are protected is crucial. A MSP can provide proactive and comprehensive security, monitoring, and management. Antivirus solutions are critical in protecting the most valuable parts of your business. By outsourcing these tasks to experts, you can be assured you are protecting your business in every way.

5. Adding Value to Your Business

When you find the managed service provider that fits your needs, you will be increasing the value of your business. The valuable time you spend updating your technology or dealing with system errors will be restored and now will be spent on growing your business. The right MSP will ensure your technology is always up and running to ensure efficiency and productivity is at an all time high.
