With cybersecurity threats growing more complex, many companies are discovering peace of mind through partnership with an IT expert.

There’s been an alarming rise in cyberattacks in 2020, with the FBI reporting a 400% increase in complaints to their cybersecurity division since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, few organizations are prepared to meet these security challenges, and security breaches continue to make headline news.

Why is cybersecurity so difficult? The major reasons are complexity and cost. There is no single product – or even suite of products – that a business can install and be “done” with cybersecurity. It requires sustained attention and effort from a team of experts, which puts it far out of reach of most small and midsized organizations who are operating with a limited security budget.

Most businesses quickly realize that the best and most cost-effective way to keep their data and business safe is to enlist the expertise of an IT support provider.

According to research by cybersecurity firm the Ponemon Institute, 68% of small and midsized businesses were victims of a cyberattack last year — the third year of consecutive increase — while only 45% report feeling confident in their ability to defend themselves.

The Benefits of Outsourcing Cybersecurity to a Team of Experts

The ideal security partner for most small and midsized organizations is what’s known as a managed IT services provider, or MSP. Veteran MSPs like Complete Network employ dedicated cybersecurity staff who can guide businesses through every phase of building a security program that’s customized to their needs and budget.

Complete Network has been building cybersecurity programs for decades. We have a thorough process for addressing risk at every stage of your organization.

Train staff in the latest security best practices and test their preparedness

Here are some of the other benefits of a cybersecurity partnership with Complete Network. Working with a security partner not only relieves your internal team of a major burden, it allows you to better focus on your core business without having to waste time or energy on security-related matters.

Dependable Cybersecurity for a Flat Monthly Fee

Cybersecurity talent is hard to find, and harder to retain. With salaries routinely reaching over $100 thousand a year, even a single cybersecurity hire is out of reach for most businesses, which makes hiring an entire team to handle every aspect of security completely out of the question.

Working with a reputable outsourced cybersecurity team solves that problem. Complete Network provides its clients with that team of security engineers and specialists for a single, flat monthly fee. That means no matter how much work it takes to protect your servers, workstations, laptops, mobile devices, or personal computers, we never deviate from our agreed-upon monthly service charge.

Complete Network provides 20 years of outsourced cybersecurity support experience.

The Latest Cybersecurity Tools and Intelligence

Good security requires having the right tools, but there are new cybersecurity software products emerging on a monthly basis – far too often for most business owners to manage on their own.

Complete Network helps its clients wade through the latest marketing lingo, identify the tools and technologies that are most relevant to their businesses, then integrating them into their networks to ensure that good security doesn’t mean lowered business efficiency.

We help businesses choose the right systems and platforms to achieve optimal security, helping them avoid over-spending on unnecessary or redundant products.

Compliance Expertise for Regulated Industries

Organizations in the legal, financial, and healthcare fields are major targets for cybercriminals. In addition to security challenges, these companies are also trying to manage the pressure of strict regulatory compliance requirements.

How can these organizations take advantage of the latest technologies, while ensuring they don’t become a compliance liability? The best way is to partner with a seasoned compliance expert, like Complete Network’s vCIO team. We’ve helped companies of all sizes manage their exposure to:


Our compliance team helps organizations find areas of non-compliance, identify data assets that need additional protection, and deploy controls to protect even the most complex organizations from violation or penalty.

After your compliance gaps have been addressed, we’ll provide ongoing support to ensure that not only do you achieve decisive compliance, but that you stay compliant with regulators over the long term as your technology evolves.

The cost of non-compliance has increased 45% since 2011, with the average cost of a single breached customer record reaching $242 in 2020, according to IBM and the Ponemon Institute.

Vigilant 24/7 Security Protections and Monitoring

Cybercriminals don’t just attack during work hours when your IT staff is there to respond. Actually, the opposite is true. Ransomware, for example, is more likely to get triggered after work hours when your staff are at home in bed, giving the attack time to do damage undetected.

For regulated businesses and organizations that prioritize maximum security, Complete Network provides 24/7 security monitoring from a dedicated security operations center (SOC). Our SOC solutions provide you with a team of highly-skilled security engineers who will keep watch on your systems and assets, analyze any unusual network activity, and mitigate threats as soon as they’re detected.

Any business that values its data can benefit from our 24/7 SOC services.

Faster threat mitigation with best-in-class detection and response tools and processes Demonstrate the highest level of security preparedness to prospects and clients
Vigilant enforcement of security and compliance controls throughout your network Optimized security visibility and reporting for auditing and insurance purposes

How To Supplement Your Internal IT Team.

In an ideal world, technology would be a consistent source of competitive advantage and benefit for small and midsized businesses. The reality is that many fail to realize that confidence.

Without the right resources and support, even a highly skilled technology team can become overwhelmed by the growing list of technology management duties. When important tasks get neglected, it creates ripple effects throughout an organization that damage productivity and efficiency.

The co-managed IT services model solves these problems by providing your existing IT team with all the support and resources they need to successfully plan, manage, and defend your network technology.
