Today’s small and medium-sized businesses are more streamlined than ever. SMBs have implemented a variety of devices, systems, and structures to increase efficiency. And while the introduction of a more advanced technology infrastructure has had a positive impact on SMBs, many are ill equipped to manage these systems on their own.

Given the great technological leaps that SMBs have taken in recent years, processes must be put in place to manage these technology systems, as well as ensure greater safety and security. CMIT Solutions bridges this divide for SMB owners, providing peace of mind and affordable, effective IT solutions and support.

CMIT Solutions calls this the “complete solution” – a collection of services including commercial-grade file sync and share, full 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.

Most recently, consumers have sought out devices that allow them total access to their files, photos, and information across multiple platforms. At its core, the consumer can read a document on his or her laptop, later edit the same document on a smartphone, and send the document to a co-worker on a tablet. The same goes for emails, graphics, and files – everything can and should be accessible at all times, a shift that has long-lasting effects on small business continuity.

As technology adapts to the modern consumer, we must constantly adapt our perspective to the changing landscape. This means taking a long, hard look at where SMB technology should improve. One of the most problematic areas is sloppy security – it makes sense that when you’re accessing data across multiple devices, the system becomes easier to breach. That’s where data encryption comes in. Not only does data need to be secure at rest, but it needs to be secure in transit – meaning wherever you go, you have complete peace of mind that your files will remain confidential.

Mobile applications often cache user data in an effort to improve the app’s response time. This creates a huge risk: unless this cached data is encrypted, it could potentially be exposed if the mobile device is lost or stolen. CMIT Solutions’ “complete solution” takes these risks into account and can work with your business to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.

The “complete solution” stays on the leading edge of the mobile marketplace to 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.
