Proactive IT support conceptTranscend Break-Fix Solutions

IT support in San Diego is going to incorporate any number of solutions— you’ve got to be careful and find those which are most pragmatic when it comes to your business. Perhaps there are areas of service provision where a break-fix solution is going to be more recommendable— these are going to be the exception. Unless you’re so savvy about computers that you only have IT support perfunctorily on the back-burner, break-fix options are more likely to cost money than save you anything. The reason is simple: with break-fix, no— or very little— IT support is brought to bear on your systems unless an actual problem arises. This means that you don’t realize you have an issue until some server crashes and requires support. It’s like waiting until your engine starts smoking to get an oil-change.

Meanwhile, proactive solutions monitor your systems continuously, identify potential issues before they become egregious, and correct them immediately. Ultimately, this saves businesses money in the long-run, as they don’t have to spend outlandish sums on completely re-invented solutions; rather, they have a single predictable payment which has an all-inclusive nature to it.

Continuous Monitoring

IT support in San Diego offering proactive solutions can monitor your operations:

• During business hours
• After business hours
• During work holidays
• During sales drives

These four areas will each put different stresses on your system. Regular business hour monitoring can help reveal trends of a damaging, or positive, nature. The one can be encouraged, the other discouraged. After business hours is when you’re most likely to see certain types of security breaches, so proactive support can help ensure all systems remain secure. Work holidays are another area where traffic volumes fluctuate, as do hacking expeditions across varying networks. Likewise, sales drives are going to see increased levels of usage, and stand to suffer considerably should downtime result from tech difficulties. With proactive monitoring, you can run things right to the edge of trustworthy operations and keep from going overboard.
Network problems will come at the most inconvenient times. You won’t benefit very much from a break-fix model that can’t be contacted over the weekend or at night, or during holidays.

Identifying Upgrades

Additionally, proactive monitoring can help identify where upgrades should take place. It’s easier to spot weakness and curtail it, while buffering that which is already strong.

With cloud computing support more prolific now than ever before, it’s increasingly possible to continuously monitor operations cost-effectively. Sometimes, a virus gets into the system despite the best efforts of professional IT people blocking spam, malware, and ransomware. If a managerial person with higher access privileges gets roped in by some dopey email with a virus, the whole company could suffer. But with proactive support, such exigencies can be monitored and curtailed immediately. Furthermore, there’s such a thing today as continuous data backup. The system can be rebooted from precisely the point where a virus was introduced, meaning nothing is lost.
