Email Security

Many businesses don’t realize that their data at greatest risk while it’s in transit. Regardless of industry, email is perhaps the most common form of communication amongst business owners, clients, co-workers, etc. Given the ubiquity of email in today’s workplace, it is often used by hackers as a way to gain access to a system or to infect it with dangerous malware.

Inadequate security measures for your business’ email can have devastating long term effects, we’ll make sure this doesn’t happen to you.

IT is continually evolving, and your business’s needs have changed over time, too. How can you find the right solutions for your business? Our consulting services will help you find strategies and systems to meet your IT goals. 
Implementing a new solution is exciting, but it can also tax your IT department. If you’re looking for more staffing or additional expertise, our project implementation services deploy new solutions with minimal impact on your network. 
Protecting your data is crucial to your organization’s longevity. However, often, businesses are unaware of what their vulnerabilities are. Our security assessments analyze your IT environment to varying degrees and provide steps for you to take to address the issues. 

Email Security

Are you confident that your emails are only being read by their intended recipients?

Loss of Privacy

Email is your best means of communicating with your vendors, clients, and employees, but if you’re questioning the security measures in place, how can you feel comfortable sharing secret and valuable information? Worrying about who will read your email every time you send one is no way to do business.

Compromised Data

As soon as you learn that one email has been leaked, there’s no way of knowing how much more already have, or will be. The sensitive data that you and your employees divulge in emails and attachments on a daily basis is only as safe as your email security measures. 

Untrustworthy Reputation

Clients rarely continue with businesses after they’ve been hacked. Would you expect your current business partners to continue to communicate with you via email if they were unsure of its safety? Protection for your email further protects your company’s name and reputation in the business community.

Frequently Asked Questions


These are just some of the questions we’re happy to answer for you. If you have more, let’s schedule a meeting and we’ll be happy to answer them and find a solution that works best for you.

Very smoothly, actually! Having conducted regular client onboardings for many years, we have developed (and continually improve) an onboarding plan which comprehensively addresses all the various areas of IT infrastructure coming into our management and control. This includes quarterbacking all the communication with your prior provider to gather information and transfer information to us. 

No extended downtime is required to switch from your current provider to us. Any brief downtime as the result of updating systems or installing our management tools (typically as simple as a reboot) will be coordinated to happen after hours at a time appropriate for you. If we are migrating hosted servers or systems from your current provider to us as part of the onboarding, we will coordinate any necessary migration-related downtime to be off-peak hours and after hours as necessary.

Our onboarding process takes 7 days to complete and comes in two main parts: pre-onboarding and onboarding day. Pre-onboarding is the process of information gathering and validation, typically starting 7 days prior to your onboarding day. In these 7 days, we gather information about your systems, so we are prepared to conduct an effective onboarding day. Then comes our favorite day, onboarding day! On onboarding day we “flip the switch,” and we become your managed services partner. We like to make sure the relationship starts off on the right foot, so we love to come in on onboarding day with several members of our team and host a town-hall lunch for your team. We use this brief time to introduce ourselves and learn more about the IT “pain points” in the organization so we can start helping (and building trust with your team) right away!
