We provide managed IT services to small and mid-size businesses in Raleigh, Cary, Garner, Apex and other Triangle area cities and towns from our Garner, NC headquarters. We also support small and mid-size businesses in Alexandria, Ashburn, Leesburg and Woodbridge, Virginia; Rockville, Maryland; Washington DC; and other DC Metro Area cities and towns from our Chantilly, Virginia office.
When we welcome new managed IT services clients on board, our first priority is to address any day-to-day reliability or security concerns. We then proactively manage your computer network, quickly addressing issues that could lead to downtime. Reducing the amount of reactive, break/fix work allows both WingSwept and our clients to focus on mid-and long-term IT planning, implementing new technologies that produce far more savings than they cost.
We’ll also evaluate your servers (cloud and/or on-premise) extensively, ensuring that they are well maintained and are meeting your needs. Once we’ve optimized email, data and file servers, we’ll proactively monitor them to ensure they remain fast and free of viruses and malware. In addition, we monitor the desktops, laptops and even mobile devices connecting to these servers, ensuring that they’re providing your employees with what’s needed to get their job done efficiently.
Of course, every organization has day-to-day technology issues that arise. When that happens, we provide exceptional 24/7 managed IT support to our clients through our friendly, local helpdesk team. We don’t use outsourced service delivery or technical people. As a knowledge-based service provider, we know that our people are our greatest asset. We’ve been recognized as a great place to work in each of the last nine years. What that means to you is that you will get the service you’d expect from a group of skilled technicians who love coming to work and helping our clients.
From simple email access questions to complex server challenges, our knowledgeable managed IT support team is equipped to provide your employees with what’s needed to keep you operating at full speed. Our IT experts have vast knowledge on servers, maintaining hundreds of them and ensuring that they remain reliable, up-to-date, and powerful enough to meet the needs of our clients.
As ransomware and phishing attacks continue to make headlines, our team works hard to stay on top of all of the latest security threats. Our network engineers understand the importance of cybersecurity and data protection, and will work diligently to ensure that you are protected from external and internal threats by gaining familiarity with your network and regularly reviewing vulnerabilities.
These days, the most common network security threats are related to phishing attacks, as well as internal password and data access policies. Stopping these threats requires more than simply installing corporate antivirus software. WingSwept will help you implement a password policy for all of your employees to ensure that passwords are secure and changed regularly. In addition, we will remove old or unused accounts.
We will also proactively monitor your network for external threats, including phishing attacks, malware, and security holes, and we’ll patch software as soon as security updates become available. This will keep you protected from even the most recently exposed security vulnerabilities. We will help you train your employees to recognize and avoid phishing attempts. And of course, if your employees have any questions about the threat posed by suspicious emails they’ve received, our friendly IT helpdesk team will be happy to answer any questions they have.
Leveraging Technology to Achieve Your Business Objectives
The most important aspects of technology are whether it has been designed and installed in a way that meets your organization’s goals and supports the way you work. When you come on board with WingSwept, we will assess your business technology infrastructure and evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of your business’s systems.
Unlike many other IT service providers, our analysis goes beyond productivity. In recommending the best solutions for your organization, we believe it is important for your IT services company to consider security, reputation and employee morale, which are all key factors in our analysis. We do all of this with the understanding that solutions must also be cost effective, fitting within both your cost and time budget.
