8 Things You Need to Know About Technology Alerts

by | Aug 23, 2016 | IT Services

Do you have technology alerts set up for your company? Even having basic monitoring and alerting systems can save your company time and money by notifying you before a problem gets too big. Being prepared can mean the difference between a small, fixable issue and a catastrophic event that could lead to downtime and money lost.

Here are 8 Things You Need to Know About Technology Alerts

  1. Technology system alerts are much like fire alarms. The alerting system works in the background, and when an issue arises, it notifies those at risk.
  2. Technology alerts were, and still are, the original core focus of Managed Services and proactive IT support.
  3. Typically, Managed Service Providers receive the alerts and can solve an issue before the client even knows an issue exists.
  4. Hundreds of technology alerts monitor everything from firewalls to broken server fan, and everything in between.
  5. If you only have the bandwidth to monitor one type of system alerts, we highly recommend monitoring hardware because of the potential severity of a hardware issue.
  6. Security alerts are not typically included in standard Managed Service Provider alerts. Instead, they are usually part of a separate security alerting system.
  7. Your company should have alerts whether you have an in-house technician or an outsourced team of Managed Service Providers.
  8. It is important to dedicate resources to monitor and track technology alerts for greater results.
