LOS ANGELES – July 31, 2018 — Malware. Ransomware. Wannacry. DDoS attacks. The list of ever more sophisticated and dangerous threats to the lifeblood of today’s business – their data and customers – is growing at warp speed. Business owners and IT managers feel under constant siege because they literally are, and they struggle to figure out how to keep the ramparts manned and secure in the face of those constantly changing assaults. Today, they can breathe easier with TPx’s powerful new reinforcements: Managed Firewalls for advanced network security; Managed Endpoints for increased workstation and server performance and protection; and Managed Backups for a complete hybrid Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) solution. These essential protections are now available nationwide after being exhaustively field-tested in demanding real-world customer business environments over the past year.
“We worked and listened closely to customers in multiple industries and a recurring pain point we heard about was that dreaded word – complexity,” said Jared Martin, Vice President and head of TPx’s Managed IT line of business. “They struggle with multiple niche vendors or try to staff up and stay current in-house. It’s expensive, pieced together, inefficient and, most importantly, not always secure because a single vendor’s weak link in a company’s security strategy could open up the door to an expensive and possibly fatal attack.
TPx takes on that challenge for its customers by pairing up state-of-the-art technology with a 20-year record of outstanding service.
“This is not a nice-to-do,” said Ross Spero, Director of Product Management at TPx. “Sixty percent of small companies go out of business within six months of an attack. Businesses know they should take security and business continuity seriously, but limited budgets and a shortage of qualified security experts make that easier said than done. TPx’s team of top security experts, armed with the most advanced technology and two top of the line Security Operations Centers, lets them put their full focus on making their businesses thrive.”
Using TPx Managed Firewalls, businesses get 24/7/365 monitoring and protection, visibility into what is happening in their network and control over the traffic on it. TPx’s best-in-class line of defense against Internet-based threats includes all the features necessary to help protect businesses and ensure network access while safeguarding performance.
Another big pain point for companies is protecting their endpoints because all too often trouble comes from known threats that haven’t had an updated response installed yet.
“You can’t overestimate the importance of proper patching,” said Martin. “That’s where Managed Endpoints service from TPx comes in.”
This comprehensive workstation and server solution includes application patching for critical updates, next-gen endpoint protection software, system performance monitoring, inventory reporting and more. Critical customer systems remain healthy and stable with the help of TPx’s 100 percent U.S-based engineering and support teams, freeing in-house resources to focus on other needed tasks.
TPx’s Managed Backups helps companies protect their critical server data and minimize the risk of loss by delivering a turnkey, fully managed Backup and Disaster Recovery solution. Unlike many other backup solutions that run on cloud or on-premises systems, TPx’s hybrid model allows businesses to keep running without a hiccup when trouble occurs (and it will). With research showing that the average cost of IT downtime is $5,600 per minute, having any kind of extended issue can be a business killer. TPx’s comprehensive managed backup solution handles everything from implementation and management to nonstop monitoring, making the backup process pain-free for business owners.
Running a business is hard enough without constantly looking over your shoulder for threats or having to manage a complicated network of different vendors, hoping that their solutions will work with each other. TPx’s comprehensive portfolio of managed security, endpoints, and backup and disaster recovery solutions brings simplicity, seamless performance and cost-effectiveness together for businesses. From simply protecting a user’s desktop or mission-critical server’s performance reliability, to maintaining a 100 pecent network uptime service level agreement (SLA) across a fully redundant and secure SD-WAN network, TPx keeps the security ramparts manned, alert and ready to repel any threat.
