One thing all financial services firms need is great IT support. Between the fast pace of the industry, strict regulations, and the need for super-tight security, working with an IT support company that has a deep understanding of the way your business works is critical to your success.

What Financial Services Firms Should Look for in an IT Support Company

At VC3, we openly admit that our services aren’t the best fit for every business. Your needs are unique, and your IT processes will be too. But weighing your options with the right information can lead you down the path of stable IT success.

When it comes to finding the best IT support for your financial services firm, make sure the company you choose hits (at a minimum) the big 3:

  1. Security - the IT company should insist on layered security measures to keep sensitive data and systems safe.
  1. Business Continuity - if something goes wrong, you still want to be able to process transactions and keep business moving. The IT company should identify points of failure and the impact of downtime, then create a plan to prevent those events from halting operations.
  1. Backup and Disaster Recovery - in the event of a virus, hardware failure, or accidental deletion (human error), you’ll need good backups. Make sure the company you choose will work with you to determine the best data retention policies, will backup your data multiple times per day, and will test the backups regularly. After all, what good is a backup if you can’t actually restore the data?

We genuinely want you to help you get the best business results from technology. As a company with a track record of success in this industry, we hope this information is helpful in choosing the right IT company for you, even if you don’t pick us.
