Workstations, smartphones, and other computer hardware break down and degrade in performance as they get older. So why do companies still expect their critical network components—the very foundation on which their business is built—to function any differently?

At Trapp Technology, we’ve come across too many businesses that have either gotten hacked or suffered major network outages because they still used old equipment and unpatched/outdated software—all to cut IT costs. The irony here is: the cost those companies incur from the downtime far outweighs the amount they would have saved to begin with. In certain cases, such a mistake could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

The fact of the matter is: aging hardware and other IT components need to be regularly updated and maintained to make sure your business thoroughly reduces its risk for outages, vulnerabilities, or performance failures of any kind. If your company doesn’t have the resources or budget to handle those tasks internally, hiring a managed services provider to handle your network and its components is a critical move your company needs to make.

From the data center level to end-user machines, Trapp’s managed services team works with you to keep the entirety of your network updated, patched, and monitored to completely minimize the threat and likelihood of damaging network setbacks. Since technical experts are watchdogging your system 24 hours a day and seven days a week, your company will be able to identify holes and vulnerabilities in your network before they can be exploited.
