Cyber-attacks are a growing threat for small businesses and the U.S. economy.

Small businesses and their work-from-home (WFH) employees present attractive target to cybercriminals, and typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses.

Yet many businesses can’t afford professional IT solutions, have limited time to devote to cybersecurity, or they don’t know where to begin.

Engaging Shipshape IT for an informal cybersecurity assessment will help you learn about common and emerging cyberthreats, better understand where your business in vulnerable and equip you to make critical decisions to better secure your IT and reduce your risk.

Why Businesses in the Washington DC Area Outsource Their IT Support Needs

Consistent, High-Performing and Reliable IT Services

As the world continues its path to digitization, more and more services rely on consistent high performance and reliable systems to function. Any slight decline in efficiency can cause interruption in your ability to respond to your clients.

Defining True Value in Your Technology Solutions

Small and medium-sized businesses usually delegate the IT support role to a single staff, which is counterintuitive considering the array of needs and the responsibilities that come with the task. You do not have to worry about your IT staff being a “jack of all trades” with your IT needs. Our team of experienced IT staff with various fields of expertise will ensure your network and staff are performing without interruption.

A More Focused Work Approach

It can be challenging to worry about every portion of your business without one area suffering from the lack of attention. When you outsource your cybersecurity and IT operations to Shipshape IT, your focus can remain on your core mission.

Why Choose Shipshape IT for Your Washington DC Cybersecurity Needs?

Local Support for as Long as Needed

We typically resolve Washington DC clients’ IT problems using our remote management toolset. However, there are times when remote management may not be sufficient. Should this be the case for you, we will not hesitate to dispatch local technical support staff to manage the problem on-site.

Flexible Contract Requirements

Because of our flexible contracts small and medium-sized businesses in the Washington DC area are able to work with Shipshape without risk or apprehension. Our IT support clients can leave after 90 days with a 30-day prior notice. Fortunately, very few of our clients take advantage of this policy: Over 93% of our DC area clients choose to renew their contracts yearly.

Swift Response and Timing

The IT and cybersecurity industry is time-sensitive because every minute spent offline translates to poor sales or increases the risk of invasion by malicious actors. As such, we are always on-call to forestall the breakdown of your IT-based services and fix them right away. We typically respond to your complaints within 15 minutes.

Well-Trained Staff

You may have been plagued with IT companies that hire less experienced support technicians who demand lower hourly pay but are unable to complete a task without escalation and additional delay. At Shipshape, we prioritize effectiveness and prompt service delivery through our proprietary Critical Management as a Service (CMaaS). We hire experienced, exceptional and talented people and provide them with a continuous reward and a development roadmap.
