Have you ever considered having a managed services plan for your home computer?
Most people think of these proactive maintenance and security plans in relation to business computers sitting in an office. But the landscape of how we work has changed drastically over the last few years, and especially the last several weeks.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that home PCs are being used more for work and school than they have been. Putting more strain on them and also making it even more important to keep them up and running.
Even before the pandemic, the workforce was seeing a migration to telecommuting, both with the increase in freelancers and the number of companies allowing employees to work remotely.
Phishing scammers have noticed the shift to more reliance on home computers, and online threats aimed at home networks are at unprecedented levels.
In March 2020 alone, phishing attacks increased 667%.
The barrage of online threats coupled with the importance of keeping your home computer running effectively make it important to give it the proper protection and monitoring it needs.
To address this, Pro Tech Guy offers Cloud Care, which is an all-in-one plan that keeps your PC proactively monitored, maintained, and secure from threats and data loss.
Advantages of Using Cloud Care Protection
No one wants to have their bank account hit by a hacker because they didn’t secure their PC.
Freelancers working from home can ill afford a 2-hour interruption because of a computer problem.
These are just a couple of the scenarios that Pro Tech Guy’s Cloud Care was meant to keep from happening.
Here are the advantages of using Cloud Care for your home computer.
Security Updates are Handled for You
Unpatched system vulnerabilities accounted for 60% of data breaches in 2019.
Often, people miss important updates because they’re busy and don’t want to be interrupted or they don’t know that there are firmware updates waiting for their device.
Not installing those updates, which often contain critical security patches, can leave your computer vulnerable to attack.
With Cloud Care, all your updates are handled for you, so you can go about your day uninterrupted, but knowing your device has all the latest security updates applied.
Antivirus & Anti-Malware Protection
Your system is continually monitored and protected from viruses and malware when you use Cloud Care. You don’t have to deal with any popup boxes, run scans, or worry that your antivirus subscription has run out.
We take care of ensuring your device is protected at all times, even from the newest threats.
Daily Automated Backups
Just about everyone has experienced some type of data loss incident. And just because you have a backup in place, doesn’t mean you won’t run into problems.
Unmanaged backups can get stuck due to a software glitch, run out of space, or have some other type of problem resulting in data loss.
The average failure rate for successfully backing up all data is 75%.
With Cloud Care, your daily backups of all your important files are not only automatic, they’re also monitored to ensure they haven’t stopped or had a problem. You can rely on the security of knowing your data is safely backed up in the cloud and there when you need it.
Fast Email Support
When you’re in the middle of a project and your computer suddenly has an issue, it can mean an hour or more of lost productivity while you’re struggling to fix the problem yourself.
One of the biggest advantages that you get with Cloud Care is one-click email support when you have a problem.
It’s like having your own IT technician at your side to get you through any hardware or software problems, meaning less time wasted and fewer frustrations and interruptions.
The lifespan of a computer is largely determined by the maintenance and care it’s given. It’s somewhat similar to an automobile. When you take your car to a mechanic and get oil changes regularly, it lasts longer than if you don’t.
Your Cloud Care plan includes proactive maintenance, which means your PC will be getting those regular “tune ups” that it needs to stay in top working condition and avoid problems that lead to slow downs and sluggish systems.
By having your PC taken good care of, you’ll be increasing its lifespan and the number of years that it can perform optimally.
Peace of Mind
One of the intangible benefits, but one that’s just as important as the others, is having peace of mind that your computer is secure and protected.
You won’t have to wake up in the middle of the night worrying about a potential ransomware infection or wondering if your system will make it through the day without a glitch slowing you down.
Cloud Care protection means you can rest easy knowing your system is being well taken care of.
