Mobility Managed Services

How are you managing your mobiles?

55% of those who took part in a recent YouGov survey said they couldn’t get through a meal without checking their mobile phones.

With 95% of UK 16 to 54 year old’s owning a smartphone, our mobile devices have become indispensable; keeping us in touch, improving productivity and helping to squeeze more into our busy lives.

It’s the same for businesses and organisations, where mobile technology is critical to success. The downside is the time and resource required to keep mobile devices – smartphones, tablets, laptops, the internet of things, etc – productive and secure. Without constant, professional, mobile tech expertise, deriving maximum value with total security can be a real challenge.

AVR’s Mobility Managed Service is the answer. A full service portfolio with a return on investment that delivers increased productivity, a secure network and reduced overheads.

IT Security

Don’t renew without an AVR view

Is your IT Security, Threat or Cyber Protection solution due for renewal?

Do you wonder if you’re paying too much or have security software that’s now not right for your business or organisation?

With the dramatic increase in malware, computer viruses, cyber attacks and ransomware, many of the more traditional security software solutions struggle to resist these more sophisticated attacks. Many companies are still operating outdated anti-virus software that offers little resistance to a modern attack.

So we’d like to suggest you don’t renew with an AVR view!

IT Security pain points

IT Security and Threat Protection. We feel your your pain.

The increase in the number and type of cyber attacks and data breaches has sharply raised the profile of IT Security and Threat Protection for businesses. For those not working in IT, cyber security may seem like a relatively new phenomenon, but for experienced IT directors and managers the threat has built from a tidal swell to a major flood.

Research amongst our customers and vendor partners demonstrates that high-profile attacks such as those on FIFA, British Airways, Under Armour etc., and malware like WannaCry, NotPetya and GitHub have pushed the issue front-of-mind, stimulating thoughts on what the main pressure or pain points are for IT decision makers.

AVR has analysed the data and identified four key areas that are driving threat protection investment decisions.

Lookout Mobile Security

How much risk are you taking with your mobiles?

Mobile infection rates rose in the last twelve months and will continue to do so as cyber criminals are increasingly turn their focus to mobile devices as these endpoints have little or no protection on them. The assumption is mobile devices are safe, have built in security or are enrolled in an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution securing the device. This assumption is wrong. There are a wealth of threats targeted at mobile devices, such as man-in-the-middle attacks, data leakage, malicious apps, out of date OS. To protect against these you need to understand what risks your mobile devices are prone to.

To help assess how vulnerable your business may be, AVR, in association with mobile security specialists Lookout, is offering for a limited period, a complimentary Mobile Risk Assessment with the opportunity to win a Spa Weekend break in our exciting prize draw.
