To increase your chances of closing a deal, you need to understand the customer and their specific needs. Why might they be seeking help from a managed services provider? What problems are they trying to solve? What challenges are they facing? How can your IT services help overcome these challenges?
While no prospect wants to be ambushed with non-stop questions, well-crafted inquiries can make all the difference when it comes to winning new business. If you have prospects or clients willing to engage in a dialogue with you, use these key questions to gain a better understanding of their needs and accurately prescribe your services.
Today’s IT service providers understand the value that blogging brings—whether it be through search engine optimization (SEO), driving traffic to your website, demonstrating thought-leadership or generating new leads. However, many are left wondering, “how do I get more involved with blogging?” and “what kind of content should I be publishing?”
To help you maximize the effectiveness of your blog, I’ll walk you through the five types of blog posts you should be writing, and how and when to best leverage them.
You tell your clients all the time about good password policies. You tell your friends and family. You may be able to rattle off in your sleep “unique, long strings of varied characters with multiple numbers, capitals, and special characters.” But just how many people are heeding the call for better security? Has the public started taking cyber security seriously?
Today's businesses are hyper-focused on ensuring their IT environments are secure and protected from cyber threats. However, with all the attention being given to the front lines of defense, what happens if you leave the back door open to hackers and intruders?
Configuration errors, lack of IT controls, un-secure internal processes—these are all examples of vulnerabilities that could lead to security breach and major data loss. To decrease the chances of a successful breach, organizations can take simple countermeasures, such as working with an MSP to tighten IT security. But first, look out for these seven basic avenues that might be open to cyber criminals.

On this Memorial Day, we wanted to take a moment to thank all those who have served in our military, and those who have given their lives for our freedom. We feel that there is no greater sacrifice to be made than to serve your country and we salute all the veterans out there on this Memorial Day.

Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot last Saturday, my news feed has been flooded with Royal Wedding coverage, updates, opinion articles and quizzes. In fact, one of the quizzes I came across the other day was titled, “What’s Your Royal Guest Name?”
Seemingly innocent, this quiz provides you with “your new royal identity,” and has since swept the Internet. But, what makes this quiz so cleverly dangerous is that unbeknownst to those who are participating, their answers could help scammers get their hands on some sensitive data.
While it’s likely that you and your clients may not be taking quizzes like these (or maybe you are, I don’t judge), it’s yet another example of the power of social engineering and how easily people can be duped into divulging personal information. In this post, I’ll cover how this scam works and what you and your clients should look out for.
