Recent published research tells a frightening story about the risk of cyber crime to Irish companies. In 2022, the average ransomware payment made by an Irish company was €22,773.
In a time of tightening purses, small and medium companies in Ireland find it difficult to increase their IT spend, sometimes requiring a factor of 2 or 3 times the current IT budget to employ both an IT Support partner, and a traditional IT Security partner.
That's why we've created Secure Support - a single service combining all of the features of traditional IT Support, with Proactive Security Monitoring, Detection & Response.

Integrating IT support and IT security ensures a holistic approach to safeguarding your organisation's technology infrastructure. By combining these services, we establish a proactive defense mechanism that covers both day-to-day technical support and robust security measures.
When IT support and IT security teams work together, incident response becomes more rapid and effective. Our Support experts can quickly identify and address security incidents while resolving technical issues, minimizing downtime, and reducing the impact of potential threats.
Our Support Experts, who have insights into the day-to-day functioning of your organisation's systems, can identify potential vulnerabilities or suspicious activities and alert our Security Experts to investigate further, enabling early detection and mitigation of security risks.
Combining IT support and IT security services leads to large cost savings. Instead of maintaining separate partners for support and security, with each partner spending time and effort getting to know your systems, consolidating these functions allows for better resource allocation and optimization.
Integrating IT support and IT security services helps your organization meet regulatory compliance requirements and manage risks effectively. The collaboration between out IT Support and IT Security experts ensures that security measures are aligned with compliance standards, and potential risks are identified and mitigated in a timely manner.
When IT support and IT security teams work together, they can share insights and feedback, leading to continuous improvement. Our Support teams provide valuable input to our Security experts regarding system vulnerabilities and user behavior, enabling the implementation of enhanced security measures and better incident response procedures.
