Managed Cyber Security

Introducing The Security Shield: A fully layered, enterprise-grade cyber security solution created for small to mid-sized organizations.

Our Security Shield, is a fully layered cyber security solution that protects you before, during, and after a security event.

What does effective cyber security look like?

It begins with a clear cyber security strategy

Cyber security threats are one of the biggest risks organizations now face.

Effective cyber security begins with one simple recognition. That as a small to mid-sized organization, you are now a real target for cybercriminals and hackers.

This understanding should drive your cyber strategies

Your cyber security strategy begins in the boardroom, and ends with training and educating your entire team.

A successful cyber security strategy is a living, breathing plan. It must rely on the right tools and processes to identify, detect, protect, respond and recover when necessary.

Cyber Security starts in the boardroom

An enterprise-grade, fully layered cyber security service

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a widely accepted and proven cybersecurity authority

The 5 Pillars of NIST include:
A strong cyber security posture is a competitive advantage

Avoid the “wish list” approach to cyber security

The “wish list” approach is used by most IT service companies, and puts your organization in a vulnerable position.

Our Security Shield addresses the entire Cyber-Security list and is part of our monthly Managed IT Service

It works like this: Your IT or security provider identifies all of your cyber threats, That list will include 10-15+ items.
Then, with your buy-in, the IT company picks the top 3-7 threats out of that list and addresses those. 
They put the remaining threats on a
“wish list” for you to deal with over the next months or even years. 
This is a highly risky approach, leaving you open to an attack and a breach.

How much does effective cybersecurity cost?


To be effective you need a fully-layered cyber security solution that address all of your security threats.

Most IT providers follow the “Wish List” approach, only securing a few of the biggest threats, leaving you vulnerable.

One important distinction to understand is that most IT Providers do not include cyber security in their monthly fees, it is usually an add-on expense.

At Imagine IT, we look at cyber security as a critical business strategy. And we include it as a necessary part of our monthly IT services fee.

If we broke out the cybersecurity costs, it would look something like this:

$20-$35/user per month

Note: Depending upon your current security position, there will be some onboarding and deployment costs to install The Security Shield.


As a small to Mid-sized Organization, We're not much of a target. Why should we be concerned?

Unfortunately, that is what so many small to mid-sized organizations still believe.

This is the furthest thing from the truth!
One in three breaches involves small to mid-sized businesses.
Why?
Your business could be one mouse click away from a breach

Why do we require The Security Shield when traditional IT providers don’t?

How much should YOu spend on cyber security?

There are many things that influence how you build your cybersecurity budget. Including:

Most cyber security experts say you should spend 10% – 20% of your IT budget to protect your organization. Even though the average business pays less than 5%.

At Imagine IT, we understand the budget issues as we work with hundreds of small to mid-sized organizations in every industry. To compete, you now must be a digital-first organization. And all of those digital assets and devices are connected … giving the bad guys a lot of ways to get in.

It’s much cheaper to prevent breaches than to repair the damage afterwards

How safe are your customers, employees and your organization?

In this digital economy, cyber security is now a competitive advantage. And the companies and organizations that don’t take this serious will lose customers, market share, and may even close shop. Small to mid-sized organizations must demonstrate to their customers, vendors and stakeholders, that they have the proper cyber security practices in place. Especially with so many remote workers and hybrid offices, cybersecurity is now a huge competitive advantage … where do you stand?
