October marks 2020's Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched in October 2004 to ensure that every American had the appropriate resources needed to be safe and secure online.

No single security method is good enough to ward off every vulnerability, which is why Apogee’s clients have multi-layer security profiles. With anywhere from 7-12 layers of protection, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ve done everything you  can to secure your business.

Apogee’s Security Solution

At Apogee IT Services, every client’s managed services solution includes these ‘best practice’ layers of security. All security solutions include licenses & management, including renewals. Plus, we continuously vet new technologies to ensure our clients receive up-to-date protection.

  • Cloud-based anti-spam
  • Network-based web filtering & Malware/Botnet protection
  • Endpoint security including anti-virus & anti-spyware

Data Backup & Disaster Recovery

Protecting business data is more important than ever before, which is why we offer data backup as part of the Apogee managed services solution with state-of-the-art tools and processes.
As an Apogee client you’ll have peace of mind knowing that we follow a 3-2-1 backup philosophy:

  • 3 forms of image-based backup
  • 2 locations, both onsite and offsite
  • 1 method to cloud

Additionally, we have data recovery services and help our clients to develop business continuity plans and crisis management plans as applicable.

Backups are performed every hour of every day. We offer 24/7/365 backup monitoring and alerting as part of the Apogee solution. Our technologists also are proactive and check on any ‘no shows’ – when backups can’t be confirmed – and remediate when necessary. Backup reporting is available at any time and can be produced to meet compliance regulation.
