What Happened

It’s no surprise anymore that cybercrime is a growing concern, but as technology grows, so does the crime and the need for IT and security technicians. The real concern is the same reality that all businesses are facing, the challenge to find skillful employees that want to work!

Cybercrime is the fastest growing industry, we can’t train enough workers fast enough, and the costs for employees keep going up. Nowadays, it’s common for entry level technicians to begin their career with a starting annual salary of $50,000 or more. For many small-to-midsized businesses, that’s more than their entire budget for technology, application licensing, office supplies, and even marketing, combined!

What This Means for Small-to Midsize Businesses

There are other options!

Tech Advisors is a leader in IT Managed Services for their ability to offer more, for less.

Rather than receiving one full-time technician, Tech Advisors delivers a team of expert engineers, technicians, and a client relations manager, at a fraction of the costs. Not only that, but Tech Advisors operates as a “Virtual Chief Information Officer” to consult their partnered clients on where to improve operations, decrease costs, and maintain compliancy throughout the everchanging landscape and regulations.

Tech Advisors offers managed and co-managed solutions for the specific needs of each business. Some solutions are designed solely to improve the security system, and others are geared towards security awareness and regulated trainings for employees. Regardless of the solution, it needs to fit your budget and industry regulations first and foremost; and Tech Advisors can help guide you through the complex definitions and difficult decisions your business is destined to face.  

What do Costs Look Like?

Gone are the days of the “pay-as-you-go” model that charge by the hour.

Tech Advisors charges a standard monthly fee built for the unique size and needs of the business.

Costs will vary depending on products, users, devices, servers, and applications.
