Saluting small businesses during their week

By Zachary Goriszewski Posted May 03, 2023

It’s National Small Business Week, a time to celebrate the contributions that small businesses make to our economy and communities. At LRS Small Business Tech Services, we are proud to support small businesses by providing managed IT services that help them compete and thrive in today's digital world.

Recently, we had the opportunity to work with a business that was experiencing a significant issue with its cyber insurance policy renewal. This client’s insurer had updated its requirements regarding cyber security. The policy required multi-factor authentication (MFA) before the user could sign in. MFA is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism. This solution needed to be in place on all 300 of their company user accounts within the next 30 days, or their cyber insurance policy would not be renewed.

After conducting a thorough assessment of their policy, LRS Small Business Tech Services suggested a specific service that could help the client resolve the issue: Cisco Duo. This two-factor authentication solution helps organizations boost security by verifying user identity, establishing device trust, and providing a secure connection to company networks and applications.

The results of the project were transformative for the client. Implementing Cisco Duo immediately resolved the issue, allowing the client to obtain secure connections to applications, improving the trustworthiness of tech devices, and allowing them to maintain their cyber security insurance policy.

Today, this client is thriving, thanks in part to the innovative solutions provided by LRS Small Business Tech Services. We are proud to have played a role in their success, and we look forward to continuing to support small businesses as they navigate the ever-changing landscape of technology.

At LRS Small Business Tech Services, we are committed to helping small businesses succeed by providing innovative IT solutions that help them stay competitive and grow their business. We’re working for small businesses 52 weeks a year, not just this special week.

If you're a small business looking to improve your IT infrastructure and stay ahead of the competition but don’t know where to start, contact us today! We can provide solutions that will help you worry less about the technology your company needs and focus more on providing the products and services your customers love.
