The year 2020 was nothing like what we had seen before. At a certain point in time, it felt like the world would come to a standstill. With lockdowns and travel restrictions imposed across the world, businesses were pushed into a ‘new normal’. One of the things that was a part of the ‘new normal’, was working from home. This WFH set up brought along with-it multiple challenges, especially to those organizations which were not into this model already. Accessing critical work information,...
Let me start this blog by asking you a question. How did your business respond to the security threats brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic? The reason we are discussing this is because a recent survey conducted by Password Keeper and Ponemon Institute revealed that during the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, the effectiveness of organizations’ IT posture in terms of cybersecurity dipped by almost 30%. One of the main reasons for the compromise in IT security was the hurried transition of so many...

Did you know that social media accounts are one of the favorite targets for cybercriminals? You may think cybercriminals would prefer to hack online banking accounts or shopping accounts, but that does not seem to be the case. Here is why. Social media accounts hold A LOT of personal information including name, email ID, date of birth, place of birth, place of work (your business!) high school attended, names of family, friends and pets, anniversaries, and more...which means, they are...

2020 threw a lot of challenges at the world. One of them, from the business perspective, that overshadowed the others was cybersecurity. How to ensure data safety and security in an environment where businesses cannot really control what employees do even during work hours? With the world almost a year into the pandemic, new best practices emerged that will be in use not just during the pandemic, but probably also in the future, post-pandemic era. Because the trend of working from home now...
The global pandemic that began to send us packing from our offices in March of last year upended our established way of working overnight. We’re still feeling the effects. Many office workers have yet to return to the office in the volumes they worked in pre-pandemic. For MSPs, that makes up a good portion of their clientele. Remote workers were abruptly pulled out from behind the corporate firewall, immediately becoming more susceptible to the targeted attacks of cybercriminals. Acceptable...
If you’re an admin, service provider, security executive, or are otherwise affiliated with the world of IT solutions, then you know that one of the biggest challenges to overcome is efficacy. Especially in terms of cybersecurity, efficacy is something of an amorphous term; everyone wants it to be better, but what exactly does that mean? And how do you properly measure it? After all, if a security product is effective, then that means few or no cyberattacks should be getting through the lines...
Statistics are showing that each year over 50% of small firms are victims of a cyber-attack or data breach. Why does this matter? Most smaller firms have not prepared business continuity plans to keep their IT infrastructure going in the event of an attack. Failing to do so often leads to the failure of the business. Delaying the creation of a business continuity plan is a bit like a younger person delaying writing a will, on the grounds that they are not likely to die soon. That may be true,...
It just keeps showing up in the news. Ransomware seems to just not come to an end. If you have not heard, ransomware is a particularly nasty virus that freezes access to your data and then demands a ransom, usually in bitcoin. The worst thing about it is that once you are hit, there is almost nothing you can do. There are only 2 options: do not pay the ransom and lose your data or pay it. There is no "downloadable" fix. You are stuck. With ransomware, the ONLY cure is prevention. In the case...

As Vasu Jakkal recently shared, we are operating in the most sophisticated threat landscape ever seen, and coupled with the next great disruption—hybrid work—security is more challenging than ever. Protecting from external threats is only one part of the challenge, though. You also must protect from the inside out—another facet of “assume breach” in your Zero Trust approach. Insider risks can be malicious or inadvertent, but all impact your most important asset: your data. As our recent Work...
Although they didn’t always call themselves a managed service provider, that’s exactly what T-Consulting has been since its inception. According to Vera Tucci, founder and CEO of the Italy-based MSP, it was her mission to give her clients more than a basic hardware/software bundle with a few hours of IT consultation. She knew her clients needed a greater level of service, especially those whose businesses had grown from small family operations into larger companies, and that’s what she built...
Manchester City Win the Carabao Cup Final, Many Illegal Streamers Lose The COVID pandemic has led to a surge in content consumption as people stayed home and turned to Netflix, Youtube and other streaming services for entertainment. Not everyone agrees with paying for the latest episode or album, however, and this rise has ran parallel with a rise in digital piracy. Piracy is widespread and – ethical issues aside – makes for an interesting case study from a threat research perspective. In...
With flexible working schedules, remote teams, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies in force, it is has become commonplace for employees and business owners alike to use smartphones for work purposes. A quick reply to an email, sharing that sales presentation, glancing over that vendor proposal–all on a smartphone–is something we all do on a daily basis. But with this convenience comes great security risks. This Blog Discusses What They Are and How You Can Avoid Them. Mobile...

Organizations usually delegate IT operations to Managed IT Service Providers (MSPs) to address those types of responsibilities. This model is an alternative to the more reactive, break-fix or on-demand outsourcing model. InVision Technology Solutions offers 4 different Managed Service Plans along with break-fix options for small and medium sized companies in the Phoenix Metro area.

What People Are Saying
After searching for months for a full-service IT solution and support provider, we found InVision Technology Solutions four years ago. Since that time, InVision, and its President, Sandra Juarez, have helped improve the many facets of our IT infrastructure, accommodating company growth, and in a manner that provides excellent service and protects our Company. InVision employees are knowledgeable, staying up to date on the ever-changing IT industry and, overall, its services fit well within our Company budget.

Since we hired InVision Technology Solutions, over 10 years ago, we felt like we finally could focus entirely on patient care rather than being distracted by constant IT issues. They are reliable, professional and knowledgeable. Not only they address issues at hand, but they anticipate, prepare and address potential IT threats before they can hinder our operations.
