Small and medium-size businesses have found creative ways to operate efficiently with a streamlined system of operations and staff. Implementing innovative devices, systems, and structures to increase productivity, SMBs have largely benefited from more advanced technology infrastructure. However, many are still not properly equipped to manage these systems on their own.

Taking into consideration the great technological advancements that SMBs have achieved in recent years, processes must be put in place to manage these technology systems and ensure greater structure, safety, and security. CMIT Solutions bridges this divide for SMB owners, providing peace of mind along with affordable, effective IT solutions and support.

CMIT Solutions has a name for this: the “complete solution.” This collection of services includes commercial-grade file sync and share, fully encrypted data in transit, fully secured mobile devices, a comprehensive mobile device acceptable use policy, systematized mobile device acceptable use policy enforcement, comprehensive level 10 password management, and prompt employee provisioning and de-provisioning, all wrapped within a knowledgeable, responsive support desk that has a complete understanding of all elements of this managed ecosystem.

In recent years, consumers have sought out devices that allow them total, 24/7 access to their files, photos, and information across multiple platforms. In essence, the consumer can reference a document on his or her tablet, edit it on a laptop, and call it up in a meeting on a mobile device. The same goes for emails, graphics, and files — everything can and should be accessible at all times. This shift has long-lasting effects on SMB continuity.

As technology adapts to the modern consumer, we must constantly adapt our perspective to the changing landscape. This means taking a deeper look at where SMB technology can and should improve. One of the most problem-ridden areas is lapsed mobile security — especially as BYOD (bring your own device) becomes the norm in more offices. CMIT Solutions can help your business put a mobile device security policy in place that defines which of your business’ resources and databases can be accessed via mobile devices (BYOD or organization-issued) and the degree of access, along with specifying more information about provisioning.

Additionally, it’s essential that SMBs develop system threat models for mobile devices as well as the resources accessed. Often, these devices need additional protection because of their higher rate of exposure to security threats, as opposed to a desktop or laptop computer. CMIT Solutions’ “complete solution” takes these risks into account and can work with your business to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.

This “complete solution” represents the leading edge of the mobile marketplace — that way we can better anticipate, meet, and exceed the needs of our clients. CMIT’s approach to small and medium-sized businesses is evolving to consider the number of devices used by each employee — not just the number of computers or servers in an office. Our specialized suite of services combines intimate local service and proactive IT solutions that make technology work for your business, not against it.
