Whenever you have the opportunity, back up your data. This way if you are the target of a cyber-attack, you will not lose any data despite not being able to access your computer, phone or devices. You can back up your data by getting an external hard drive for an offline backup or utilize a cloud-based service, like you would if you turned to MSEDP. Cloud backup is a safe way to keep your data safe. Backing up your data regularly, like every week, ensures that you keep your data despite cyber threats. And in the case of attack, you are not at a catastrophic loss.
As a trusted Long Island msp, we can install antivirus software while utilizing the latest in vulnerability scans to ensure everything is working properly. Our antivirus software helps to detect and remove malware and viruses from your system. We also monitor your systems 24/7 with our vulnerability scans, so we will detect any issues that arise in your system. The sooner we are aware of the issue, the sooner we can fix it. Our IT department uses the best and latest in cybersecurity technology to combat hackers and malware and have years of experience in this field. Our tech team will work with you to ensure your system's safety. And keep you apprised of any changes, as well as offer recommendations to help.
It is one of those simple, yet often overlooked aspects of cybersecurity: keeping apps, hardware and devices up to date. Updates in this realm are not just about adding new features. These updates are often about fixing vulnerabilities in a device or app that attackers may use to hack into your system. As well as upgrading the security for the app or device. Ignoring these updates for too long can result in serious consequences.
When you turn to MSEDP, we track and update your devices for you, so you do not have to think about it. And if you have a device that cannot get updates anymore, we recommend upgrading the device. Same goes for your hardware. Our IT team can help you select the best and latest hardware and devices that are ready for 2023 and beyond! And for your apps, set those to update automatically and remove any apps you do not use.
If you are regularly sharing confidential information, then we highly recommend using a secure file-sharing solution. Because this is the sort of information that attracts hackers and malware the most. Regular email is not meant for exchanging sensitive information, because if those emails are intercepted, then unauthorized users can gain access to your data. Using a secure file-sharing solution means your data is automatically encrypted, so you do not have to worry about a data breach. We follow various data encryption standards to ensure the full safety of the websites we manage. One extra step for protection is the use of a VPN. A VPN will encrypt your connection and protect your private information even further.
You will be shocked to find out that many clients, before using our services, simply used the same passwords over and over again. This is a big no-no! If one password is hacked, then they are all susceptible to infiltration. When you turn to MSEDP, we help you create unique passwords for each account. Ensuring that if you are the target of a cyber-attack, the hacker or malware will have a difficult time cracking it since we use software to create random passwords. And if they crack one, it will not give them access to any other account. We act as a password manager, in a way, helping to keep your system and devices safe. Do not let your system get hacked because you had easy passwords to crack!
Another way MSEDP protects clients from hacking is through two-factor authentication. By doing so, you can have a code sent or generated on your device that authenticates who you are each time you log in. So, even if someone gets access to your password, they do not have access to your phone or device that receives the code. Limiting how a hacker can gain access to an account. Using two-factor authentication is a simple and easy way to protect against cyber-attacks. And you do not need to use the hurdle for all accounts. Keeping it to the most important ones is also a great way to stay safe.
Scams, frauds and phishing emails are common ways to trick people into giving away their personal information or financial details. These endeavors often pretend to be legitimate businesses in an attempt to gain your trust. So it is important to be aware of these types of tricks and attempt to decipher what is not genuine. Do not give out your personal information to anyone unless you know who is asking and why they are asking it. At MSEDP, we have software to help with phishing scams via email. Notifying you what is spam and what is legitimate. But even with this protection, stop and check before replying or even opening any suspicious email. And check all links before clicking on them to make sure they are also legitimate. It is a good habit to form. And if you are not sure of the validity of the request, pick up the phone and call if you can. This way you can personally authorize the request.
When you connect to a public network, you are sharing the network with everyone who is connected. So, any information you send or retrieve on the network is vulnerable. We recommend staying away from public networks and using their Wi-Fi when you can. If you do have to use a public network, connect via a VPN or at the very least avoid sensitive transactions, such as online shopping or online banking. By avoiding these situations, you are maintaining your security.
Every time you post on social media, whether it is Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, it is an opportunity for someone to steal your identity. These personal posts give cyber criminals the opportunity to get the information they need to access your data or steal your identity. In order to limit this impact, you can check the privacy controls so your friends and family can only see your full details. And the same tip about passwords applies here, where you want to have passwords that are not obvious in order to protect your account.
This falls out of the realm of our IT services, but we recommend keeping an eye on your bank statements. Because oftentimes red flags can be found via suspicious activity or fraudulent purchases and be a precursor to a hack. If you see unusual activity, please contact your bank immediately. You can get ahead of the attack by being aware of this issue. And also check your credit card statements as well, because all of this information is tied. Getting one piece can lead to a larger theft. Also, getting a credit check can help and will let you see if anyone else gets access to them. Getting a credit check will let you see if anyone's using your personal details to get loans or credit for a big purchase. So, keeping an eye on your credit record can alert you to unauthorized activity sooner.
Now that we went through 10 helpful tips to improve your cyber security, we have one more bonus tip: invest in upgrades. When there is an opportunity to upgrade a system or anything pertaining to cyber security, we recommend following through on it. The cost up front to pay for more security and improved upgrades outweighs the potential damage of being hacked down the road. At MSEDP, we understand how money can be tight, which is why we offer maintenance packages that are affordable. We do this by tailoring these packages to the individual, because not all aspects apply to everyone. Get in touch with MSEDP today to learn more about how you can improve your cyber security in 2023!

We utilize the best firewalls that can quickly detect an attack in progress and identify malicious activity currently on your network. Our top-of-the-line threat intelligence feeds will quickly detect and alert on unknown processes or low reputation endpoints that are interacting with assets inside the network.

The number of threats out there putting you and your network at risk is higher than ever and more complex. These malicious attackers are becoming more creative in how they attack and break into networks. Whether it is through phishing, malicious websites, emails, or links to videos, cybercriminals know exactly what type of information they need and the best ways to get it. Which makes the practicing of cybersecurity services all the more important. In a perfect world, software developers would discover every single vulnerability while creating their product. Then fixing the issue before a release to the community. But we do not live in a perfect world, so these are risks that everyone has to protect themselves from. And you do that by using the latest in cybersecurity technology.
When you turn to MSEDP, you will be getting the best cybersecurity services for your money. Protect yourself with top-of-the-line cybersecurity technology. One of the ways we do this is with risk-based vulnerability patching. Risk-based vulnerability patching is a great way to protect your network and keep your data safe. Get in touch with MSEDP today to learn more about how we can be your managed cybersecurity provider.

Vulnerability patching is simply the process of fixing vulnerabilities within software. A pretty straightforward concept that typically involves the developer of the software discovering the vulnerability and then fixing it before an official release. Vulnerability patching also refers to the updating of an operating system or other software with the hopes of fixing any discovered vulnerabilities. So, to fix the issue, software or network providers need to make a vulnerability patch. Users can regularly check whether any patches are available for their system. Then install those updates as soon as possible after the release.
Since MSEDP offers top-of-the-line IT and cybersecurity services, we can stay on top of these aspects, so you do not have to. It can be very difficult to run a business and manage some important aspects of your website. Perhaps you have an in-house IT team, but if you do not, then turning to MSEDP allows for professional care an attention to your IT and cybersecurity needs. Leave the computer stuff to us! We will make sure that your network is not compromised by utilizing the latest in cybersecurity services and implementing those updates.
Since the landscape of threats for cyber-attacks is every-growing and complex, it is impossible to patch every single vulnerability in your software before any release. If a developer does miss a vulnerability, someone can file a report after the discovery. But this means that the vulnerability can exist in your software for months, or even years, before there is a report and a fix. During this time, malicious actors can discover the vulnerability and exploit it with great precision.
All of this leads to more importance with your cybersecurity services and the overall protection of your network. And makes the importance of sound risk-based decision making even greater than before. When the decision is made for risk-based vulnerability patching, it is important to understand three things: the risk of vulnerability, the discovery date of the vulnerability, and the release date of the fix.
The Risk of Vulnerability
If a vulnerability is very easy to exploit, then it is likely that the discovery has been made. But if a vulnerability has been discovered, there is no real way of knowing when a fix is going to be complete. In fact, the vulnerability may have been published online by the malicious actors themselves. Which means it may be included in hacking tools, such as ransomware, malware, and trojans. With MSEDP by your side though, you will have firewall protection that alerts you of these vulnerabilities and keeps your network safe from hackers.
The Discovery Date of the Vulnerability
If a vulnerability has been reported, but has not been confirmed and fixed, then exploitation by hackers is likely. The longer the vulnerability remains unpatched, the higher the risk for exploitation. Leaving you and your network open to malicious attacks by hackers. Our IT team is constantly on these issues and will implement changes to keep your network and data safe from any vulnerabilities.
The Release Date of the Fix
If there is a release to fix the vulnerability, then you should apply it as soon as possible. By having MSEDP as your managed service provider, we make these updates in a timely fashion. Ensuring your protection from malicious intent.
If you do not have a clear strategy for deciding which vulnerabilities to fix and when, then you are risking the chance of leaving some vulnerabilities unpatched for too long. Which, of course, leaves your systems vulnerable to malicious attacks. By having MSEDP as your managed cyber security provider, you can rest assured that we are on top of these issues for you. And have the means to assess these vulnerabilities as they present themselves. When it comes to implementing risk-based vulnerability patching, there are three steps:
Aside from the very obvious dangers of malicious attacks, there are also other reasons why you should implement risk-based vulnerability patching. MSEDP can help you make these decisions or simply make the decisions for you. We have years of experience as an IT service provider and know how to effectively handle these issues. If a vulnerability has a low-risk association and there is no report, then there is no pressing need to fix it. The malicious actors likely will not waste their time trying to exploit something difficult.
By understanding the risks, we make sure to handle the most pressing updates quickly. With every update and patch, we follow all guidelines and regulations to keep your network and software up and running. But by implementing risk-based vulnerability patching, we can manage the complexities of your cybersecurity issues by protecting you and your business from the more pressing malicious attacks that make themselves present. By working with MSEDP's cybersecurity team, you will be getting the care and attention you deserve. We will go above and beyond to make sure that your cybersecurity needs are meet at all times.
Many businesses smartly choose to outsource their IT support and services to a professional managed service provider. The decision to outsource saves most businesses time, money and resources. However, it is not always an easy decision to put your IT services in the hands of someone else. MSEDP's managed IT services offer clients a wide range of features and benefits, which you can read more about below. We hope to ease your worries in making this decision.

When you call, our friendly staff can discuss with you the various IT services available to you. Let's take a look at why outsourcing your IT services is the smart decision in 2022.
We understand how difficult a decision it is to put your IT support in the hands of someone else. MSEDP has been providing clients with trusted IT services for years. As a Long Island managed IT service provider, many in New York have turned to us for the best in IT support. Our IT team is knowledgeable and can help you with many different aspects in the IT world. And though we are a local Deer Park IT company, our service area spreads nationwide. So businesses across the United States can turn to our company for expert IT service.
So take a look at some of the benefits of outsourcing your IT services. MSEDP can help you with all of your IT services and needs.
For many businesses, an in-house IT specialist is a luxury that you simply cannot afford. Or your in-house operation is too small to handle a growing company. A small, ill-equipped staff may be using outdated systems due to the inability of affording updates. And with a small staff, then you may suffer from periods of downtime, which leaves employees spending extra time trying to fix an issue rather than working. So the overall costs involved with this loss of productivity adds up.
But when you outsource your IT services, you are potentially reducing costs of your operation. As an experienced IT team, we can save you money by keeping your systems up to date with the latest technology. And with our disaster recovery systems, there is little to no downtime to slow productivity in the workspace. By outsourcing your IT services, you can save money by paying only for what you need. So your costs get rolled into one fixed monthly payment that makes it easier to budget. Whereas if you are on your own it can fluctuate depending on what happens, which makes it more difficult to save money.
For many small businesses, they are over-worked as it is and short-staffed. Which leads to complications when issues arise, since only so many hands are on deck and you are stretched thin. But when you outsource your IT services, you get IT support when you need it. With MSEDP, we are just a call away and can help with any issue that arises. And you can rest assured that your IT systems are always being monitored to prevent issues. If operations are running smoothly, then you have the assurance of a team of IT experts at your disposal should you need them. This peace of mind comes without needing to hire additional staff.
If you do have a dedicated IT staff and/or manager that looks after your website, then outsourcing can act as a nice complement to your staff. There are times when a critical failure may stop operations in their track and your IT manager is out sick or on vacation and you need someone to help. This is when you can turn to someone like MSEDP and our dedicated IT support team. With an outsourced IT support team on your side, you can guarantee that there will always be someone available to take your call and provide solutions that complement your own internal IT staff. So you do not need to panic to get in touch with an employee on their day off. Allowing for a smoother day-to-day operations.
There are many different types of issues that arise in the world of IT, so having someone who can handle a given task is crucial. When you have a small staff, some important aspects may slip through the cracks. And hiring the right people can be difficult, as well as costly as you build a larger staff.
However, when you outsource your IT services, you can rest easy knowing that our staff has the right skills for a given task. With our years of experience and full staff, our IT support team has seen it all. Outsourcing your IT support takes away the time and stress of recruiting for an in-house role. With an expert IT team on your side 24/7, you know you will always have access to someone with a full range of technical skills and the latest in industry standards. Get the best in cybersecurity services when you turn to MSEDP.
If you and your employees are constantly handling IT issues and struggling with technology and problems, then it cuts into time running your business. For many small business owners, any downtime can lead to a huge cost. So you need to be spending time on what matters and that is running your business. And leave your IT services to the professionals. Outsourcing your IT services can give you a peace of mind that the issues are in good hands. No longer do you need to stress yourself out trying to fix a problem. MSEDP can effectively handle any issue that comes our way. Leaving you to focus on your business with us focusing on your IT services.
Whenever a technical issues arises, it can lead to disruption of the workflow and a time-wasting financial loss. Even if you are not experiencing any technical issues, handling IT services on your own is a time-consuming aspect. So when you outsource your IT services, you open up more time for work and thus increase employee productivity. Modern IT support teams offer proactive services, which prevents issues from occurring whenever possible through firewalls and other cybersecurity measures. And when something does happen, it is our job to tackle the issue head on fix the issue.
Also, aside from dealing with technical problems freeing up your employees, when you utilize an outsourced IT team, like MSEDP, you also get the benefit of other technical advances, such as the use of Microsoft Teams. By using Microsoft Teams, you and your team become more productive due to the wonderful features that Teams applications offers. Helping to bring your workspace together and improve communication among coworkers.
The IT landscape is constantly changing, with new advances in technology and services happening all the time. So it can be hard to stay up to date on all the new updates, products and applications available. And to even know if they are worth your time. Also, staying up to date on these aspects is expensive, so it is often not a cost-effective decision, despite the importance of being safe and secure.
However, when you outsource to a MSP, those updates and advances are at your disposal. As an IT company, it is our job to stay up to date with the latest in IT technology and advances. So you get the benefit of having access to those updates, all at a fraction of the cost that it would normally be on your own. And inform you on these updates, helping you and your business succeed.
If you are reactive when it comes to IT issues, then that can lead to more substantial loss and downtime than anticipated. "If it is not broken, don't fix it" is not a motto that applies to IT services, because things can be happening behind the scenes that you are unaware of and once they make it to the forefront then major complications can arise.
But when you effectively outsource your IT services, you can trust that your systems are being monitored 24/7 to help identify and fix potential issues before they impact your business. Which means that downtime is kept to a minimum. Keep your business and its systems safe and secure with MSEDP's IT services.
Everyday issues and critical failures are the first things that come to people's minds when they think about needing IT support and a trusted MSP. However, where outsourcing your IT services comes in handy most is with a long-term strategy. It is not just about fixing the obvious problems, though of course that is important, but it is about using this technology to your advantage on a daily basis and making your work life easier. Having a trusted IT team at your side allows you to effectively plan ahead for aspects like remote working and tech support, cyber security, and potential disasters.
So, with a managed service provider on your side, your options are not limited to reactive IT support. But rather long-term support and protection, as well as consultancy services that you and your business can benefit from on a daily basis. Get the help you need for your business to grow and succeed.
Microsoft Teams has become a crucial tool for many businesses and companies over the last few years, especially for those who have remote workers. And MSEDP helps companies utilize the benefits of Office 365 and its many great applications, including Microsoft Teams.
When you opt to use Microsoft Office 365 and the Teams feature, then you are opening up you and your business to a world of possibilities. Not to mention many wonderful benefits that will help you run your business and coordinate operations. Microsoft Teams is the go-to option for any staff working remotely, as it will help keep everyone in touch and on the same page. But you do not need to be remote to gain the benefits of using Microsoft Teams.
Learn more about the benefits of using Microsoft Teams. And get the help of MSEDP to help get you set up with it!
The number one benefit of utilizing Microsoft Teams is how it can act as a hub for your team, streamlining your work and saving everyone on staff valuable time. It brings together chat, meetings, calls, and all Office 365 apps. As well as allowing for the integration of third-party tools. By having everything in one place, you save time by not needing to jump around from platform to platform. And as a result the team works better together and becomes more productive.
One of the ways to do this is with streamlined file sharing, which benefits both employees who seek to collaborate, as well as IT companies that want to maintain data security. It enables users to create a shareable link for any file that gets stored in Teams and sets the right permissions. You can set who can see what by setting up the file share permissions, which is something we can help you with once you go down that route. But it is a great way to keep items safe and secure and being seen by the right people.
Setting up a video meeting can be tricky, especially for anyone who is not tech-savvy. But with Microsoft Teams, it is simple and easy to host video meetings and conferences. And their features make these meetings even more effective. One such feature is automatic noise suppression, which removes any potential background noise and makes everyone easier to hear. No more straining to hear someone speak on chat because of something happening behind them.
When joining a meeting, the launcher provides clear options on how to do so. All users are prompted to join the meeting online, with the downloaded Teams client, or join the native Teams client. And there is also an end-of-meeting notification that automatically alerts all participants when there are 5 minutes remaining in a meeting, so they know to start wrapping up. From beginning to end, teams makes meetings and conference calls easy!
When you use Microsoft Teams, you can collaborate with your coworkers seamlessly by using many great features. Let's take a look at some of these wonderful features you get when using Teams.
Users can create and manage tags in order to reach the right people faster in Teams chats and channels. The tagging capability allows you to better organize and categorize people in Teams based on roles, projects, skills, location, or expertise. However you want to structure the employees, Teams is there to manage them. Saving you time and effort when getting work done.
There is a shared calendar app that allows you to create and share a calendar with specific people or specific channels. So when you schedule a new meeting, a notification is posted in that channels' feed. Alerting only those who need to know the information. Another great way to organize the workplace and update people on a need-to-know basis. And no inundating people with scheduled meetings they are not even going to attend.
The Approvals feature in Teams allows you to create, share, and manage approvals directly from Teams. This includes client agreements, expense reports, and more. Anything that needs the approval of someone. You can send a new item for approval from a Teams chat or a channel conversation and the Approvals app tracks all previous and pending approval requests. Get the status, source, requesting party and all approvers with the Approvals app. No more searching random documents when you have Teams to organize all the important ones for you! And once there is an approval, it quickly updates all who need to know, so there is less downtime in waiting have needing to check it about a status update.
The Offline Auto-Send feature allows users to stay productive even without an internet connection. When a user is offline, their Teams messages are queued on their local device, which get automatically sent out once the device is back online. With this simple feature, you can answer emails and get other work done offline. And once you get the internet, those messages and emails automatically get sent out. Saving both time and the hassle of going back to click "send."
One of the greatest killers of productivity is switching between platforms or interfaces. However, with Teams, it packages all of Office 365 in one spot and through one interface. Which reduces the need to jump between apps, tasks, and projects.
The history menu for any Teams desktop client further builds on this functionality and enables all users to quickly return to places that they have recently visited. Which includes items such as activities, channels, conversations, tabs, files, apps, and anywhere else teams can go. This way you are not wasting time searching for something across platforms. With everything through Teams' History Menu, you can quickly backtrack without losing productivity and find exactly what you are looking for.
Teams is a great way of keeping a remote workforce in touch with one another. Despite being apart, workers still want some human connection. With Teams and its various features, it makes conversations and connections more meaningful. It does so with breakout rooms, live reactions and together mode.
Breakout rooms are perfect for larger workplaces that are looking for more focused operations. Hosts can set up smaller groups for brainstorming and meetings and hop into any of the rooms to check in. And at the end bring everyone back to the main group. Sometimes it is easier to discuss something in smaller groups first then bring the conversation to more people afterwards. Once ideas have been thought through.
Live reactions allow participants to better express themselves in meetings by choosing from four different options: like, love, applause, and laugh. Get clear communication through non-verbal chat with live reactions while in a live meeting. Instant feedback. And a great way to get a sense of how people are thinking without any interruptions.
Lastly, with together mode, everyone in the meeting can be in the same virtual space, such as the same meeting or conference room. Or you can make it more fun, like an outdoor theater. But no matter the setting you choose, it is still better than being in your own box. This feature allows people to feel like they are together when they are not, which can lead to more effective meetings. And at the very least bring a sense of camaraderie.
You may have gotten this sense already, but the use of Microsoft Teams keeps everyone informed. Aside from all of the ways already discussed, Teams also utilizes bulletins and milestones in order to keep everyone informed about the goings-on of the workplace.
The bulletins app can be easily integrated within the Teams software and provides a space where managers can post memos, announcements, and other company news. Videos and images can be posted in this space too. And the app is optimized for mobile devices, so employees will never miss important updates or alerts.
And with the Milestones app, it is a central place to plan, track, and update the progress of work items and projects. All of the users can track tasks by owners and status, or view them in updates in the activity log. Get a full 360-degree view of a project from beginning to end. With it, you can easily check in on any project to make sure it is hitting deadline.

In the meantime, let's take a closer look at the importance of pay-per-click advertising and how your business can benefit from it!
Pay-Per-Click is an advertising model of internet marketing in which advertisers pay a fee each time someone clicks on their ad. In a nutshell, PPC advertising is a way of buying visits to your website, rather than gaining clicks organically.
Advertising on search engines is one of the most popular forms of PPC, since it allows for advertisers to bid for ad placement in a search engine's sponsored links when someone searches for a business-related keyword. Instead of depending on organic clicks, these paid clicks appear at the top of searches. Thus allowing for an improvement in users to the website.
However, every time an ad is clicked on, the advertiser pays the search engine a fee. Whereas organic clicks are essentially "free" since you pay nothing for those clicks. But those organic results are not at the top of a page. Those spots are reserved for the paid ads. When working correctly, a PPC ad campaign can be very profitable. Paying a small fee for a click that might result in a sale or service is a small price to keep your business going. And you may be reigning in decent profit margins.
When it comes to building a successful pay-per-click campaign, a lot goes into it. So it is important to put your trust into the hands of a professional. Here are the common aspects that make up your typical PPC ad campaign:
When done properly, search engines will reward advertisers who create intelligently targeted pay-per-click ad campaigns. If the landing pages and ads are useful and satisfying to users, Google may charge less per click, which only improves profits. So setting it up right can be a huge boon to your business. MSEDP can help set up and manage your Google Adwords campaign. And we can create the perfect landing pages for these PPC ads in order to boost your ability to gain traffic.
When you are building an ad campaign that revolves around paying per click, then there are some important focuses that need to be folded into the marketing strategy. Google gets massive amounts of traffic. So it time and again delivers impressions and clicks for your ads. But how often your ads appear on Google's searches depends on the keywords and the match types you select. There are a few different factors at play, but these are the four main factors that may determine the success of your campaign with Google Ads:
You must craft relevant keyword lists for pay-per-click campaigns, as well as tight keyword groups, and informative and proper text for the ad.
The Quality of the Landing Page
Crafting optimized landing pages with persuasive and relevant content is a must. On these landing pages, there needs to be a clear call-to-action that is tailored to the specific search queries.
Google offers a Quality Score, which is the rating of the quality and relevance of your keywords, landing pages, and PPC campaigns. When an advertiser has a better quality score, it will get more ad clicks at potentially lower costs.
Creative & Engaging Ad Copy
Creating enticing ad copy is crucial to the success of a PPC campaign. Google wants to make sure they are sending their users to pages that will deliver what they are looking for.
When you work with MSEDP, we can make sure that these focuses are met. So you can reap the rewards of your PPC ad campaign.
When you have a PPC campaign up and running, you of course want to maximize your return on investment. A pay-per-click campaign can be a very cost-effective way of generating new leads and sales for your business, thus proving to be a good investment. But only if you set up your Adwords campaign properly. With the help of MSEDP's sales team, we can ensure that you get the most for your money with your Google Adwords campaign. We know how to properly set it up so you are reaching your marketing goals and finding your audience.
We will analyze your business and the climate it operates it. Determining the factors that will lead to the bid placements. In order to see a positive return on ad spend, the cost-per-click (CPC) needs to be lower than your average cost-per-acquisition (CPA), which is the cost to your business in order to acquire a new customer or lead. The cost-per-acquisition is sometimes known as a cost-per-conversion, too.
So, in order to run a successful PPC campaign that maximizes your return on investment, targeting keywords is crucial. Our team will do the research to make sure that we identify the keywords that are cost-effective, relevant to your business and align with your ad budget. We do all that we can to ensure that you are getting a good return on your ad spend. And we will work with Google Adwords, so you don't have to!
A key aspect of cybersecurity is data encryption. Most businesses have a lot of data stored in their systems. From financial information to customer details to private information, this is data that needs to be kept safe. And what makes all of this data safe is encryption. It allows users to protect their data while still keeping it accessible to legitimate users. However, data encryption is not infallible, but it is an important step in order to properly safeguard all of your information. And when you turn to MSEDP, you can rest assured that the best technology is being used at all times.
Knowing how data encryption works and what options you have is important and this post will attempt to get into that. We want you to be able to minimize your risks and protect your most valuable resources. MSEDP offers affordable and reliable cybersecurity services for all our tech clients.
For more information about the IT and cybersecurity services available from MSEDP, please do not hesitate to reach out! MSEDP is located on Long Island, New York, but can provide professional cybersecurity services to tech clients across the USA. The number for our office is 631-761-7600. When you call, we can provide you with a no-obligation consultation to go over whatever IT and tech services you require. Check out all of the IT services we offer our tech clients.
Now, let's learn a little more about data encryption and why it is important for businesses to stay on top of it.
Let's start with the simple question. What is data encryption? In a nutshell, data encryption is a method of protecting data confidentially. It does so by converting the data to encoded information that can then only be decoded with a unique decryption key. This key is generated either at the time of the encryption or beforehand. You can use data encryption for data storage or transmission. And it is usually used in conjunction with authentication services to ensure that keys are only provided to and used by authorized users. We offer cloud backup that utilizes data encryption in order to keep all of your information safe.
Data encryption is important for a few reasons. Of course the obvious reason is enhanced protection for your information, but data encryption also helps in the following ways:
The combination of increased internet use and the value of data to hackers makes data much more accessible and desirable than in the past. So it also increases the need for better protection.
When it comes to data encryption, there are two common types: symmetric and asymmetric encryption. The type of encryption to use will depend on how the data is intended to be accessed and who has access to it.
Symmetric encryption uses a private encryption key. This is a single, private key for encryption and decryption. This is the faster of the two methods and is best used by individuals or within a closed system. When you use a private encryption key with multiple users in an open system, it requires the transmission of the key and creates an opportunity for theft.
Then we come to asymmetric encryption, or a public encryption key. This encryption uses paired public and private keys that are mathematically linked and can only be used together. Either one can be used to encrypt the data. However, the paired key must be used in order to properly decrypt it. An asymmetric encryption is used by multiple users across open networks, like the internet. This is due to the fact that a public key can be freely shared without risking data theft.
When it comes to data, it is valuable regardless of whether it is being transferred between users or sitting on a new server. And it needs to be protected at all times. But ultimately, the data protection depends on the state of the data. There is data encryption in transit and data encryption at rest. Both impact how your data is kept safe.
Data Encryption in Transit
What makes data in transit? Well, data is considered in transit when it is moving between devices. Some examples are when it is moving within private networks, moving through the internet, or moving from a laptop to a thumb drive. When it is in movement, the data is at greater risk. This is due to the need for decryption prior to transfer and the vulnerabilities of the transfer method itself. The encrypting of data during a transfer will ensure that even if the data is intercepted during the move that it is also kept private.
Data Encryption at Rest
Data is at rest when it is stored on a device and is not actively being used or transferred. When data is at rest, it is, for the most part, less vulnerable than when it is in transit. This is due to the device security features that will restrict any access. But of course, it is not immune. And not for nothing, but at rest data is often more valuable, so it becomes a more appealing target for online hackers and thieves.
When you encrypt data at rest, it reduces any opportunities for data theft created by lost or stolen devices, inadvertent password sharing, or accidental permission granting access to the information. And thus increasing the chances of discovering data loss, ransomware attacks, remotely erased data, or changed credentials. And keep all of your data protected.
When you turn to MSEDP, we provide our tech clients with cloud backup services that help in times of crisis. So you can rest assured that your data is safe, despite a potential breach. And as a trusted firewall reseller, we can get you the protection you need to keep your data and information safe.

MSEDP offers trusted and affordable SEO services for websites across the United States. Any business, but especially small businesses, need effective search engine optimization in order to break through and rank on Google. Here is a rubric on how we effectively handle the SEO for small businesses. We have the tools to get your website and business over the hump! Our SEO copywriters use these rules and guidelines in an effort to provide for the most comprehensive search engine optimization content writing possible. When you turn to MSEDP, you will have at your disposal professional content writing that gives your website a purpose. And populates it with clear and engaging content that will entice any visitor. Here are some ways we effectively write search engine optimization content for the websites we handle.
When you are a local business, you want to rank for local-intent keywords. Such as "service" + "near me" or "service" + "city." This way you can attract potential customers in a certain area searching for a product or service you provide. This is called targeting an audience, and the SEO writers at MSEDP can pinpoint these areas in their writing and ensure that you are ranking in those areas.
However, not all websites work locally. Perhaps you are a small business that has a wider reach or wants to aim for a wider reach. There are ways to effectively market to those audiences too. At MSEDP, we build websites and can customize a website to cater to your specific needs and help you grow your business. So no matter how big or small your service area is, your small business website will be seen.
One effective tool to help with local SEO is managing your Google My Business account. This is a great way to make sure your business is thriving. Many people will use Google My Business to search for goods and services. We can help you set it up if that is a path you wish to cross.
Another important aspect of writing SEO content for small business websites is to fulfill the user intent. When someone searches for something, they have a desired outcome for that search. So instead of trying to trick the system into ranking higher with black hat measures, our content writing aims to fulfill that user intent. Give them what they are looking for through clear and engaging writing.
Here are some common types of user intent that we take into consideration:
This is when someone is searching for information. An example of this search is, “What is the best type of tool for paving?”
Navigation intent is when someone is searching for a specific website.
A transactional intent is when someone searches to buy something. For example: “affordable websites" if you are looking for someone to build an affordable website (something that MSEDP can do for you, too!)
In order to get a sense of user intent in searches, our team of SEO writers researches your competition to see what they are doing. You always want to compete, so having an idea on how they are driving traffic can clue us in to important details on how to handle your SEO campaign.
But at the end of the day, simply having high-quality, engaging content can get the job done. There is a saying in SEO that "content is king." So with our SEO content writing for small business websites, we will populate your site with relevant content.
Every website is different and has different goals. So it is on us, your SEO writers, to know the goals of your website and your customers. By doing so, we can determine which areas to focus on, where to track conversions, and how to set goals for the campaign as a whole. We are constantly in contact with our SEO clients, which helps to keep the goals aligned. And when something new comes up, we can shift gears to help promote a new aspect.
There are key performance indicators (KPIs) that we use to help measure the success of a campaign. It ultimately depends on exactly what your small business is attempting to accomplish with the SEO content we write, but here are a few common KPIs we may use to measure a campaign:
Each campaign is different. But our staff of writers will make sure we are aiming for the right goals to ensure your business and website flourishes.
When looking at these KPIs, terms such as "ranking" and "traffic" are not mentioned. We use a system to track the rankings of your keywords. And send monthly reports to update you on their progress. However, they are not the be all end all for your SEO campaign. Of course it is great to have a bunch of keywords ranking on that first page of a search, but if no one is clicking through or interacting with your site in a meaningful way, then that is an issue. One way to fix it is with our professional website design. We can build you a new website that shines. So when people land on your site, they are not turned away by an older looking site. Having a new looking website also tells the visitor that your company is doing well.
But back to the SEO. The overall aim of our search engine optimization content writing for small businesses is to help your business. In many cases, when you have a lot of keywords on the first and second pages, those sites perform well and people use the websites. However, that is not always the case. We want to make sure you are getting the most out of your website. Here is a quick example of a scenario. Which of these situations would you rather have?
Of course you are going to choose the one with more contact forms filled out. Because that means that someone is interested in buying what you are selling. We talk with clients often about the importance of having people use the website. The rankings and traffic are not the be all end all. You want the people who find your site to use your site. And that's what we do at MSEDP. We effectively target an audience with SEO and help you grow your business. When SEO is done well, it can help small businesses achieve real goals!
