GAINING THE IT ADVANTAGE
THE EVER-INCREASING technological dependence of today’s business brings myriad opportunities for innovation, says Brad Pearpoint, managing director of solutions provider Advantage. “It also attracts ever-increasing risk,” he says. “At the forefront of next generation IT that’s facilitating bigger, smarter, faster operation, we are also waging the frontline war with proliferating cyber security risks and threats.”
Pearpoint says Advantage is not your usual IT company. “Yes, we offer the range of IT solutions that you’d expect – helpdesk support, architecture and design, security risk minimisation including AI technologies, and Cloud computing – but it’s how we deliver our enterprise solutions that sets Advantage apart.”
Pearpoint says Advantage takes seriously the role of partner. “Our expertise is what we bring to the table and our clients benefit from us being at the forefront of the IT frontier. We’re big on being proactive and our focus is on eliminating risks to IT infrastructure and systems to minimise problems and maximise uptime.”
Eschewing one-size-fits-all solutions, the Advantage team is geared to provide tailored, comprehensive IT support whatever size organisation, whatever budget, whether through ‘as-needed’ consulting, partnering with in-house teams or total outsourcing.
Central to Advantage’s edge, explains Pearpoint, is its range of Managed Security services, allowing businesses to access and benefit from solutions, techniques and expertise that have been previously only available to large-scale organisations.
“We continue to see attacks against New Zealand businesses increase in both scale and frequency, and we know that businesses of all sizes need to improve their security posture. Our goal with our Advantage Protect services is to provide holistic security solutions that protect your and your client’s data at a realistic price point, in a method that works with your business, no matter the size.”
