Boring’s Not So Boring
Boring Now Offers Expanded Solutions for Cybersecurity
Boring Business Systems, based in Lakeland, FL, has been named as a Tech Data Security Partner, which offers enhanced assessment, prevention, protection and recovery for IT network systems. With this new partnership, Boring is better equipped to help businesses make decisions about their IT infrastructure and improve their exposure as it relates to data protection and cybersecurity.
“Businesses are increasingly concerned about protecting their IT network for data breaches and massive hacks,” said Chris Hart, Chief Information Officer of Boring’s Managed Network Services. “It’s understandable when you hear about targeted ransomware attacks on government entities, such as what recently happened down the road in Riviera Beach. With our new Tech Data partnership, we can help keep data and information secure, while also maximizing compliance and certification.”
Hart explained that Boring starts by assessing a clients’ vulnerability and ensuring industry and governmental compliance. Options for data security include device encryption, backup, data loss prevention, and data classification. With security intelligence, Boring provides Security Information & Event Management (SIEM), threat intelligence and predictive analysis. They have intrusion detection and prevention, URL filtering and sandboxing for network and perimeter security. For endpoint security, Boring offers advanced malware protection, ransomware protection, and patch management.
“Cybersecurity is a pretty complex topic,” said Hart, “and Boring is committed to consolidating cybersecurity services and offering clients more qualified products and services. Our solutions strategically address a client’s individual needs based on the size and scope of their IT infrastructure and network system.”
In addition to being a leader in the field of IT services and cybersecurity, Boring provides document management, network support and print management for businesses all across Central Florida. This includes copiers and printers, VOIP Phone Systems, cloud services, and training. Boring is locally owned and operated with their headquarters at 950 E. Main Street, Lakeland, FL 33801. A Tampa office specializing in Managed Services and IT support is located in the Westshore area at 3614 W. Cypress St., Tampa, FL 33607.
“As our clients deal with the day-to-day challenges of compliance, regulation and security, we understand the importance of offering products and services to more proactively meet their needs,” said CEO & President Dean Boring. “Our company’s new partnership with Tech Data enables us to provide our clients with a broader range of industry-leading solutions for data protection and cybersecurity – all under one roof.”
