Duluth, GA (Vocus) October 1, 2009
According to the professionals at Guidance Consulting, Inc., a leading IT staffing and support services firm, there are actually few companies who can't benefit from IT consulting and vulnerability protection. Yet, one of the biggest misconceptions companies have regarding IT consulting is the belief that it's geared toward companies working directly with information technology. With more companies relying on online transactions and networks for shared communications, there are more reasons to consider IT consulting than ever before.
"The worst-case scenarios for today's businesses almost all include an IT disaster," says Ronald Gottilla, senior consultant at Guidance Consulting. "It doesn't matter whether you're in the business of banking, technology, or even nonprofit fundraising - if you have an online presence or communicate via a virtual network, your company is at risk."
These risks come from a variety of places, including hackers, viruses, user error, deliberate employee damages, and even physical damages to computer and network hardware. In addition to offering general IT consulting and infrastructure development, companies like Guidance Consulting work to reduce the risks associated with these types of disasters.
"While a small businesses might not have a need for us to come in and help them develop a complete IT solution, they can almost all benefit from disaster recovery planning or vulnerability protection," Gottilla says of their range of services. In many cases, Gottilla and his team compare themselves to locksmiths. "We come in and protect the information you have. Information security can't be overlooked by even the smallest businesses."
Large businesses and corporations are in need of these types of services in even greater proportions. In addition to general information security and disaster recovery planning, Guidance Consulting is able to help develop and maintain large networks either through their consultation or IT staffing placements. "In many cases, we can reduce company spending by streamlining an infrastructure that may not be working at its optimum," says Gottilla. "There's not a type of business out there that can't benefit from that."
