Below is our recent interview with Shahiq Dean, CEO/Principal Consultant at SYS IT Services:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: The Bay Area turns to SYS IT because we are talented, tenacious, and trustworthy.
For over a decade, everyone from local small businesses to large enterprises to other IT services firms has called on SYS to solve their unique technology challenges, and we look forward to having the chance to do the same for your organization. We’re trusted by San Francisco businesses because SYS IT’s team of highly qualified and experienced technology professionals is led by one of Silicon Valley’s top IT consultants. Our clients know that we don’t see their problems as sources of revenue, but opportunities to help them grow through technology and share in long-term success as a full IT partner.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: The demand for comprehensive Managed Security Services has been growing continuously, owing to an ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape that has seen the volume of threats like ransomware grow exponentially in the past several years. According to our cybersecurity experts, the pandemic and the resultant increase in remote working arrangements have become a big factor in the boom of ransomware attacks. For instance, in the first half of 2021 alone, the global ransomware attack volume grew 151% from the previous period.
This is why we at SYS IT have decided to relaunch and repackage our security services, now as a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP). Being a full-fledged MSSP allows us to take care of your cybersecurity needs more rapidly and more decisively than ever before. This is important because cyberattacks have evolved, making it increasingly difficult for defenders to protect against, detect, and stop attacks from entering networks.

We believe that being proactive about cybersecurity significantly reduces the likelihood of a data breach, and that the best way we can be proactive for our clients is by offering a full complement of managed security services. As an MSSP, SYS IT will gain thorough knowledge of the threat landscape, allowing us to develop and change strategies and solutions as rapidly as cybercriminals shift theirs. This will allow us to quickly discover and stop assaults on our clients’ networks.
SYS IT now offers Managed Next-Generation Firewall, Advanced Email Security and Protection, Advanced Threat Detection and Backup for Microsoft 365, Compliance-as-a-Service, Virtual CISO, Dark Web monitoring, and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions to its list of services. We have also added a comprehensive suite of advanced cybersecurity solutions to enhance and strengthen endpoint, cloud, network, and user security. Our new and improved cybersecurity offerings are designed to meet the US Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. It is based on five functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. Each function represents a pillar of an effective cyber resilience practice.
This framework serves as the basis for the highest data protection standards in the United States, which helps businesses of all sizes better understand, manage, and reduce their cybersecurity risk and protect their network and data.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Our purpose is to improve each of our clients’ business. We take pride in making each client engagement a unique relationship, yours included. We make your goals our goals. We aim to listen to your vision for your future and work hard to make those dreams a reality. We take the time to learn about your needs and goals, then design and implement systems that get you there to provide the results you deserve. Our clear, system-agnostic guidance and implementation services are exclusively provided by senior IT leaders. We would never leave you with a solution our team wouldn’t be happy to support for the long haul. SYS IT’s commitment to client success has no equal in the IT industry because we provide personal attention and increased value to every client, every time.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: For a predictable, affordable monthly fee, Managed Security Services from SYS IT will protect your network, servers, data, and endpoints from every angle. Our experienced security technicians will implement solutions that not only protect you from advanced attacks like zero-day threats and ransomware, but also operate efficiently and consume minimal resources. By partnering with SYS IT for your security needs, you are getting an all-in-one solution to protect your data, customers, reputation, and profits while your workforce (remote or otherwise) remains productive. A cyberattack is the ultimate test of the effectiveness of your current security architecture and response protocols. Organizations who are unaware of their true cybersecurity maturity and have no cybersecurity strategy are more likely to experience a devastating impact to their business. SYS IT recommends that you build your security strategy around the NIST cybersecurity framework. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is trusted by the information security industry as a source of cybersecurity best practices. If you follow their guidelines, there’s a much better chance that you’ll be able to address cybersecurity challenges by accurately assessing your existing risk posture.Activate Social Media:
