The ImagIT Holiday Program – 18 Years Running!

2019-07-29T20:33:00+00:00December 20th, 2017|Tags: , , |

Being part of ImagIT means going extra mile for our partners and clients. During the holiday season, we are especially dedicated to showing our appreciation for everyone we work with though our Holiday Program. ImagIT President Brian Gardner has been running the ImagIT Holiday Program since the company was founded in 1999. In those days, he ran a one-man shop and visited 20-30 clients spreading season's cheer and wearing his best Santa hat. That tradition has only grown. Now in our 18th year, the Holiday Program is still a fixture at the company. These days, the ImagIT Holiday Program takes the cooperation of a team of ten employees across the U.S. and entails months of careful planning and execution. We now have almost 500 clients, partners, and friends around the world that make our Christmas list each year. Our team works together to ensure every detail is perfect. From handwritten cards, to mailed special gifts, to appreciation lunches, we know how important it is to let each and every company we work with know that they are valued. On behalf of the entire team at ImagIT Solutions, we want to wish you a very happy holiday season and a prosperous new year. We hope you're feeling that season's cheer! ImagIT Solutions specializes in providing comprehensive IT services for channel partners, MSPs, and enterprise-level organizations. Our expansive engineering team is carefully vetted and trained to meet your every IT need. Whether its proactive support, an emergency call, long-term projects, or project management, ImagIT will deliver [...]

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

2019-07-16T21:11:14+00:00December 15th, 2017|Tags: , , , |

As cyber threats increase and with so many natural disasters happening every month, it has never been more important for companies to be prepared for the unexpected. We are happy to share some information from our partners at Pronto Recovery about being prepared for disaster, because the only thing harder than planning for an emergency is explaining why you didn't. Is your business at risk? Natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey, Irma, Maria, and the Mexico City earthquake (just to name a few) have caused billions of dollars in damages just in the past year. Meanwhile, cyber-attacks such as the WannaCry ransomware attack have affected computers, IT systems, and networks worldwide. Disasters happen every day and the extent of the damage they leave behind may vary, but with thorough and tested plans you can reduce the impact they have on your organization. A disaster doesn’t have to be a large-scale event like a natural disaster or cyberattack to compromise your premises, they can be any small-scale, man-made or accidental, internal or external events that affect your employee’s ability to continue operations. Companies should prepare for all possible disaster scenarios, which is where business continuity and disaster recovery come into play. While there are many similarities between business continuity and disaster recovery - and on many occasions the same team will be involved in both within an organization - BC and DR are two separate plans with similar yet different goals and objectives. Disaster recovery vs. business continuity Disaster Recovery is more reactive and focuses [...]
