IT Services For Architects & Design Firms
However, architectural firms must be strategic about what technologies they use to make the design process more efficient, and ultimately, help them achieve higher-quality outcomes.
Architectural Firms Need an IT Company That Understands the Internal Process Complexities of Their Industry to Truly Become Technologically Sophisticated.
Many growing architectural enterprises are feeling the squeeze of technology that isn’t capable of supporting their multiple locations, desire to scale, or the work of remote employees. In addition, many growing architectural enterprises are starting to look towards advancements in technology to handle challenges, such as:
- A lack of visibility into projects and/or resource availability
- A lack of document management that enables real-time access
- A lack of communication in terms of delays and changes
- And much more
360 Smart Networks is familiar with the internal process complexities within the architectural industry. We understand the importance of secure anywhere, anytime access to information, as well as proper project and/or document management solutions to ensure a smooth workday for everyone involved.
How Does 360 Smart Networks Help Architectural & Design Firms Keep Their Data Secure?
Complex organizational IT structures require equally comprehensive, multi-component cybersecurity strategies combined with strategic countermeasures to combat ransomware, hacking attempts, data breaches, and more. 360 Smart Networks provides architectural firms that have twenty-five employees or more with an end-to-end, managed cybersecurity strategy that matches the high level of technology dependence of the firm.
We have developed an integrated suite of services that cover your cybersecurity management, maintenance, and consulting needs. It is uniquely named – TekSurance. TekSurance is based on our philosophy of protection, detection, and mitigation. TekSurance is made up of a few important elements:
- Securance: Here, we focus on building a multi-layered protection system studded with tools for the detection of threats as soon as they occur. The system utilizes malware scanning, DNS filtering and scanning, web filtering and monitoring, firewall, mail scanning, intrusion detection, traffic monitoring, and security audit protocols. It can be spread to cover Windows servers, desktops, laptops, tablets, iOS, and Android devices.
- Maintenance and Support: We understand that you may have issues that you need us to resolve. To this end, we maintain a friendly and experienced customer support team to receive and respond to your questions and troubleshooting requests. But we don’t just wait for your call. Our system is designed to alert us when there are issues with your systems, and we often fix issues before you even notice that anything is wrong.
- CloudSurance: CloudSurance is a disaster mitigation service. It consists of off-site top-of-the-line backup servers to which data is encrypted and backed up anywhere between every 15 minutes and every 24 hours. In the event of a system breach, failure, and consequent data loss, CloudSurance is on hand to ensure that your data is kept available for recovery. It works on Windows servers, Windows workstations, VMWare, ESXi, Hyper-V, Exchange, SQL, and Linux.
