Anderson Technologies, Inc. Launches Managed Tech Services Offerings for Its Clients

Anderson Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of Managed Tech Services packages. Open to new and current clients, these packages cover a range of IT monitoring and protection plans tailored to your technological needs and budget.

Mark Anderson, principal and co-owner of Anderson Technologies said, “We’re excited to offer Managed Tech Services plans that enable us to manage our clients’ infrastructure more proactively. Rather than waiting for something to fail and fixing it then, these plans allow us to implement systems that help anticipate issues before they occur, increasing uptime and client productivity.”

By investing in outsourced monitoring, servicing, and general upkeep of their computer infrastructure, our clients experience fewer problems and less downtime. Most importantly, Anderson Technologies provides a more thoughtful, purposeful management of your ever-changing computing technology, while fixed-fee plans give clients predictable computer maintenance costs and accommodate a wide range of system needs and budgets.

Clients can choose from Anderson Technologies’ Sentinel, Guardian, and Citadel Plans, each offering varying levels of coverage to manage and maintain a client’s network, firewalls, servers, workstations, laptops, printers, and wireless infrastructure. With both on-site and remote support, data backups, recovery, and anti-virus/anti-malware management, Anderson Technologies provides clients thorough evaluations, system stabilization, and ongoing monitoring of potential vulnerabilities and system entry points.

“It’s of paramount importance to us to provide the same level of exceptional service our clients have always enjoyed,” added principal and co-owner Amy Anderson. “We feel this new system of support will benefit them tremendously. The reception we’ve had so far has been outstanding as clients experience peace of mind knowing their systems are being monitored. And from a financial standpoint, a predictable monthly fee helps clients avoid budgetary surprises throughout the year.”

If you’d like to discuss our Managed Tech Services and set up proactive support for your IT needs, please give us a call at 314.394.3001 or send an email to sales@andersontech.com.

 

 

Malware Security Alert: KeyRaider Infects Jailbroken iPhones

Although this latest hack might not apply to you, we want to advise you about the latest malware, nicknamed KeyRaider. News sources are reporting KeyRaider only targets “jailbroken” iPhones. Here is a link to an article that provides more information.

Jailbreaking is a practice most common among tech-savvy users who wish to remove the restrictions and limitations imposed by their phones’ operating systems. “Unless you have jailbroken your phone, you don’t need to worry about this malware security alert,” said Mark Anderson, principal of Anderson Technologies, Inc. “This isn’t really an issue for most of our clients but it does point to a key principle. In general, security barriers are important safeguards put in place by phone manufacturers. Bypassing these measures can have disastrous results.”

If you have a jailbroken phone or any security concerns about your computer infrastructure, we can help! Please contact us at 314.394.3001 or send an email to info@andersontech.com.

Managed Services, Specialty Projects, and Client Testimonials: Our New Website is Live!

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to look around Anderson Technologies’ new website. For the past several years, we’ve been so focused on building and managing our clients’ technology infrastructure, we haven’t prioritized our own.

The website has undergone a fantastic transformation. As we explain to all clients interested in refreshing their web presence, the new site needed a clean, easy-to-navigate design, mobile responsiveness for maximum usability, and proper search engine optimization.

Our goals were to better articulate our new managed services offerings, branded Anderson Technologies’ Managed Tech Services, along with the other technology support we provide and explain the many ways we partner with clients in Missouri and throughout the United States. The site seeks to highlight what is unique about Anderson Technologies and express the major benefits of teaming with us.

One of the most gratifying aspects of the new website is the testimonial section. As a part of our recent branding efforts, we commissioned an outside consultant to interview current clients, find out how they describe the company, and discover what value they see in having Anderson Technologies as their IT partner. The results of these conversations have been amazing. We are so grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients and for the lovely comments they shared.

You’ll also see we’ve added a blog which will be updated on a regular basis–along with our email newsletter to highlight timely and relevant content. Please take a few minutes to look around. If you have ideas or additional information you would like to see covered in the blog, please let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks to all who contributed to making this such a fantastic leap forward!

 

Android Stagefright Security Threat

A serious Android security flaw has been uncovered which affects devices running Android version 2.2 or later.

From the web:

“A full 95 percent of all Android devices — that’s about 950 million smartphones, tablets and other mobile gadgets — are at risk from one of ‘the worst Android vulnerabilities discovered to date,’ according to enterprise mobile security firm Zimperium. The security flaw, enabled by the Android operating system’s Stagefright media library, could allow hackers to access devices without users ever realizing that they’ve been compromised.”

Anyone using an Android device should apply the most recent patches.

As part of Anderson Technologies’ Managed Tech Services, we monitor the IT landscape and alert our clients about items we feel they should be aware of.  If you’d like more information about that, please give us a call!

 

Windows 10 Is Coming

This Tuesday night at midnight eastern time, Microsoft will release Windows 10. While there appears to be many great features and updates, it is our policy to fully evaluate such programs before upgrading.  We’ll be evaluating this over the next several weeks, but we’ve already read that the operating system contains problems with several video drivers.

As part of Anderson Technologies’ Managed Tech Services, we monitor the IT landscape to alert our clients about items we feel they need to be aware of.

We’ll keep you posted as we have more information.
