Customized Managed IT Services For Your Business
Heading underline graphic

At Ferrara IT, we pride ourselves on being much more than just another Managed IT Services provider. We take the time to truly understand what's going on with your business - including the unique challenges you're facing and the goals that you have within your industry - BEFORE we recommend a solution. This gives us a chance to understand the genuine, root cause of any problems that you're experiencing, which is necessary for us to offer the best possible solution.

Many of our competitors will ask you how many users you have, at which point they would offer you a random per-user price. What we do, on the other hand, is get to know your current situation and create a solution that includes EVERYTHING you need and NOTHING you don't need so you don't have to pay a penny more than you have to. There are NO long-term lock-ins for our contracts, ever. Our clients stay with us because they want to, not because they have to.

  • Managed IT services is the perfect way to ensure that your technology aligns with your long-term goals as a company.

Proactively Monitor And Identify Issues

Remote Monitoring and Management

Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) software helps streamline and simplify IT management, allowing your team to operate more efficiently and focus on running the business. When our RMM agents capture device performance information and scan system processes, applications, and event logs. Once identified, these events are communicated back to our monitoring system, which generates alerts for over 2,400 types of potential issues.

Our alerting system aggregates data and common issues across all of our endpoints to generate smarter, more actionable alerts than any other platform. Alerts are only created when issues require attention, reducing the number of unnecessary false positives - this allows us to spot small problems at early stages, and proactively resolve issues before they impact your business.


We Continuously Monitor Your Networks 24 x 7

Your network is more than computers and smartphones -  your network management should be too. Laptops, workstations, mobile phones, tablets—these are all endpoint devices that connect to your IT network. Keeping them running efficiently and securely is crucial to your productivity and a big part of what we include with our Managed IT Services.

Network infrastructure is the powerhouse equipment that keeps the whole operation running. If something goes wrong with an infrastructure device, the entire network can go down. 

Complete Network Services From Ferrara IT

  • A real-time inventory of all the technology on your network—great for planning upgrades and budgeting for capital expenditures

  • Automated backups of network infrastructure configurations— essential for quickly restoring service in an outage

  • 24 x 7 proactive infrastructure monitoring and alerting—to flag potential problems before they affect your network

  • Automated troubleshooting tools and secure remote access to your infrastructure devices—for fast issue resolution

  • Performance reports—for full visibility and accountability

  • Two-factor authentication, granular control of user access, and secure management of your network credentials—to keep your network safe

Our complete network services combine endpoint and server management with active infrastructure management to deliver the ultimate network performance. You can expect greater business productivity, fewer issues requiring support, lower maintenance costs, complete visibility, and around-the-clock optimization.


Limiting Your Risk And Protecting Your Business
Heading underline graphic

How much time have you spent working on cybersecurity issues in the last six months? Are you staying up-to-date with cybersecurity threats?

With all of the various threats to your company’s data, IT security needs to be a key priority.

If you don’t have someone actively monitoring your network, you may not detect any issues until it’s too late. What if you didn’t know your business had been attacked by ransomware until after the ransom payment window closed, and you couldn’t access any of your files?

Examples of time consuming but necessary cybersecurity tasks you can offload include:

  • Reviewing firewall rules

  • Updating your firewall

  • Patching the latest vulnerabilities discovered

  • Maintaining required controls and standard certifications, such as ISO, SSAE16, HIPAA, SOX, etc.

  • Filtering web content

  • Updating software

  • IT Security Training

We help you tackle these challenges head-on thanks to our security experience and proven risk management processes. Our IT Security process includes:

Ensuring Your Data Is Protected, No Matter What
Heading underline graphic

There’s no way to predict the future, and Murphy’s Law tells us that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. In business continuity planning, taking a few minutes on a Friday afternoon to back up important files to a USB drive simply doesn’t cut it. The risk and potential for data loss today are so high.  Disaster recovery solutions need to account for much more than a single failed hard drive or corrupt file. Here are some of the scenarios where BDR proves to be most helpful:

Natural Disasters and Extreme Weather

Likely the first thoughts in most of our minds when thinking about “disaster” are those caused by Mother Nature—hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and other events that can cause significant structural damage and substantially impact businesses. A 2013 study, “Climate Change Preparedness and the Small Business Sector,” claims that small businesses lose an average of $3,000 per day after closing due to a severe storm, and the regularity of these events makes the decision to purchase BDR a no-brainer.

Even in cases where infrastructure damage is minimal, things like power outages, small leaks, and less severe issues can result in significant downtime, impacting sales, employee productivity, and client retention.

Hardware Failure

Simply put, hardware fails. Different hard drives, servers, desktops, and other devices have varying life expectancies and refresh cycles, but now and again things simply break down. Whether it’s due to normal wear and tear, defects, or the unexplainable, businesses need to be prepared. BDR can help ensure that entire datasets and all of the information stored on these devices are replicated and accessible should something suddenly stop working.

File Corruption and Software Failure

In addition to hardware, software solutions also occasionally trip up and cause problems. Files and data can become corrupted. Files may be deleted without warning. The important presentation or Excel spreadsheet may suddenly disappear right before an important meeting. In addition to providing complete restores for entire machines, BDR allows for the recovery of individual files and folders.

Our BDR Capabilities
  • Continuous Data Protection - technology that automatically tracks changes at block-level

  • Comprehensive Data Verification - utilizes multiple verification processes, and tests backups to ensure validity.

  • Instant Onsite Virtualization - for minimal downtime.

  • Secure Remote Access - through a highly secured cloud interface.

  • Multiple Cloud Storage Options—from long term data archiving to immediate recovery.

  • End-to-End Always-On Encryption - continually protects data at rest and in transit.

  • Bare-Metal Restore - for complete system recovery.

  • VM Export - for easy on-site deployment and replication to VMWare or Hyper-V.

  • Granular File & Folder Exclusion Rules - to optimize backups.

  • Granular File & Folder Recovery and Browsing - targets only the files you want to be restored.
