Understanding Automation

The strategic use of automation allows us to protect your business from harm.

Business technology is the bane of the modern worker. No matter how well-intentioned the members of your staff are, when they have computer troubles, it complicates everything they are trying to accomplish. This, in turn, complicates every goal you are trying to accomplish.

The automation of IT service delivery gives you a direct line to a stronger business by streamlining the services that your customers rely on. This is accomplished by removing downtime from the equation, while also securing your data and protecting your infrastructure. Since we only automate repeatable and routine tasks, it makes it so we can provide a comprehensive IT management service for an affordable monthly rate.

What Can We Automate?

Many of the managed services we are responsible for can be automated, and many of them, in our opinion, work better as automated tasks.

By taking the human element out of the equation, the time-consuming tasks that humans could conceivably mess up are replaced with repeated perfection. So the first step for the company in search of leveraging automation for IT management, and for the right managed services provider, is to determine what tasks absolutely need to be automated in order to save capital. We will assess what kind of management your organization needs, and customize our powerful solutions to protect your business.

Some of the most common automated tasks from an MSP include:

  • Patch management
  • Backup management
  • Mobile device management
  • New hire management

The key to our automation is our enterprise-level Remote Monitoring and Management software (RMM). This includes pre-built automations and customizable options to build more services. In some cases, it’s as simple as clicking the options in a menu, but you have to know what systems you want control of, and what maintenance is required to keep those systems working efficiently. With RMM tools being managed by knowledgeable technicians, you will see a precipitous increase in IT availability, which will immediately decrease the amount of downtime your organization sees.

How You See Value From Automation?

When your technology breaks, you have to fix it. That much is understood.

What many business owners don’t understand is that the costs that are really hurting their business are the ones that come from employee downtime. These costs add up quickly and can, depending on the problem, be a major reason your organization’s profitability wanes.

We use automation to ensure that your hardware is up and running properly, that your network is free of process-hindering threats, and that your software is current. These processes, if done manually, would cost you (and us) a fortune in man-hours. We have done the legwork to ensure your IT is stable and running efficiently, which leads to a stable and efficient business.

NAXYM is the solution your business needs to eliminate downtime. If you would like more information about automation, remote monitoring, or any of our other managed IT services, call us today at (310) 579-0003.

What Are the Consequences if You Fail to Comply?

Since the law that the GDPR replaced was over twenty years old, the vast changes in computing, marketing, and sales coupled with the prevalence of threats to data security produced some stark changes in the way the GDPR punishes companies that are found to be in violation of this mandate. SAs have far more authority under the GDPR than under the old directive. They hold investigative and corrective authority, and will have a system to issue organizations warnings for non-compliance. They will also perform audits, dictate changes, impose deadlines for those corrections, order data to be forfeited or erased, and even be given the power to block companies from transferring data to any other jurisdictions until all compliance mandates are met.

The biggest role SAs will have is assessing fines for noncompliance; and, the fines are substantially larger than under the previous law. Fines will be determined based on the circumstances of each case, and if substantial evidence is there to find that an organization’s breach wasn’t of their own negligence, the SA may not impose a fine at all. The fines that are imposed may be up to two-to-four percent of total global turnover or up to 20 million euros, whichever is greater.
