Managed IT services
With managed services Mainbrace Consulting can respond quickly to any IT issue that might arise with your on-site computer network, such as servers that go down, applications that freeze or won’t open, or any of a number of technological maladies that rob you and your staff of precious time and productivity that produces revenue. Managed IT from Mainbrace comes with regular maintenance to prevent many problems from happening in the first place.
Hosted computer networks offer significantly greater security and are hosted in a facility hardened against natural disasters, electrical outages, intrusions and viruses and their systems can be monitored 24/7 with a guaranteed uptime of 99.9%. The added benefit is reduced equipment costs, and often, software costs as well. Data is accessible anytime, from anywhere, and is backed up automatically to multiple locations around the country. Disaster recovery is easy and quick. Mobility options are greater and less expensive than if the server was on-site.
Cloud based technologies
The new buzz word in Information Technology is “The Cloud”. It simply means that someone is hosting your software and data somewhere else and you are accessing it over the internet. Cloud computing can offer some great benefits in certain circumstances. There are procedures to be followed and not everyone does it in a way that is proper for a law office.
Military grade security
Law offices have greater liability than most other businesses. The Bar requires that each firm ensure the safety and privacy of client information. A breach of security could be devastating to your client and your firm. Turning your office and computer network into a fortress is difficult at best, expensive, inconvenient and counter- productive at worst. Today’s lawyers need multi layered virus and intrusion protection, something most firms can’t afford to put on their local network.
Freedom of mobility
You’re on the run, on the way to court, in court, traveling to a client meeting, across the building, the complex, the city the state, country or around the world. You need easy, real-time access to your calendar, contacts, documents… everything
Secured off-site backup
Tape and other media type backups are notoriously unreliable, require constant care and feeding and can be expensive. Getting the backups out of the office and into a secure location is problematic. The trunk of a car is not considered secure, by the way! Make backups regular, reliable and safely offsite to multiple locations around the country automatically.
Redundant, top of the line equipment monitored 24/7/365, isolated backup generators in category 5 hurricane rated facilities allows you a guaranteed up-time of 99.9%.
Easier budgeting with fixed IT costs
Reduce costly down-time and unexpected IT repair costs. Whether you have a local network or want to go to the cloud we can help you fix your IT budget with a managed IT program.
