We understand what it takes to optimize your processes and raise your performance levels. There is nothing that will disrupt your productivity like a security breach or data loss.

With our IT365 program, you can shift your technology needs to us and have peace of mind knowing your systems are in qualified hands. With all of our methods, we will create a net of protection around your network that defends your data and ensures your productivity. Comprehensive computer security requires experience and knowledge of all the tools that are available. You can trust Lang Company to use the latest techniques and cutting-edge technology to create powerful cybersecurity solutions for your business.

All Your IT Security Measures Under One Service Provider

There are a variety of ways hackers or malicious software try to gain unauthorized access to your systems. Many cases of intrusion start with strategies like social engineering and an innocent employee making a mistake. Someone trusts the wrong email and downloads a file they should have deleted. From there, the virus or piece of malware can run rampant through your hardware and software. One of the best ways to avoid mistakes like this or breaches altogether is to have all of our IT services under one managed plan.

Lang Company is a managed service provider (MSP) that offers a full library of today's latest techniques and IT solutions. Having all your IT needs under one MSP limits the chances of a breach in your security because it eliminates the confusion and miscommunication that can come with multiple providers. We'll be your single point of contact for cybersecurity issues, and our team will already be familiar with your work environment so we can address your problems quickly.

When it comes to protecting your network on a day-to-day basis, we'll put our remote monitoring and managing service in place to keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary or a drop in performance. Beyond that, our backup and disaster recovery plans will be there to keep your data safe and recoverable in case of a breach or loss of information.

Network Security Can Be a Matter of Legal Compliance

Depending on the industry you are working in, there are possibly strict legal requirements for the security of your data. If you deal in elements like customer financial information or patient medical records, there can be serious consequences for a data breach that extend beyond your business. Recently, there was a medical center here in Louisville, Kentucky, that came under attack from ransomware. Their patient records and scheduling systems were encrypted by the malicious piece of software.

Everything they needed to operate their clinics was still on their drives, but unusable. They were eventually forced to pay the $70,000 ransom to get access to their files again. Luckily, it sounds like the files were encrypted but not stolen. If the patients' medical records had fallen into the wrong hands, there could be legal action taken against the medical center for not taking the measures to protect patient privacy.

Not only will Lang Company help prevent unauthorized access, we'll make sure your network infrastructure is compliant with the regulations that apply to your field. Security services like this will protect your productivity and your organization from legal action or fines.
