Outsource your IT

At AF Services, we will take the time to understand your business and provide a tailor-made IT Solution which will be flexible enough to grow with your business, whilst at the same time, not giving you technology you don’t need.  Worry about you business, and let us worry about your IT.

Leave everything to us…

We will project manage everything and deal with:

  • Electricians
  • Cable installers
  • Internet service providers
  • Procurement and delivery of equipment
  • Set-up of equipment
  • Training of staff.
  • IT Desktop, Server Support and Maintenance

Why Outsource?

Focus on getting your business  – whilst we focus on the technical jargon and deliver an IT Service that your business needs.
 
 Save money – you don’t have to pay a full-time employee, the average salary for an IT person is £28,000 per year. We have maintenance contracts from £200 per month, or just pay as you go with no commitment!

Benefit from an outside pair of eyes – External consultants see a wide variety of IT systems, and have a constantly evolving view of what works, and what doesn’t. It’s common for internal teams to have a narrower view of IT as they are only focused on the technology which you implement and do not have exposure to potentially beneficial solutions. Consultants are gifted with a sharp eye that can pin-point risk issues and recommend necessary countermeasures or actions.

Packages

We understand that every client is different, every business is different and therefore our packages are tailor made just for you. We are confident that our service is comprehensive and will not lock you in to any contracts.
Our services include:

Is your business secure?

Gibraltar is a wonderful place. It’s virtually crime free, and everyone knows each other.

With this assurance, its easy to become complacent when it comes to securing your organisations IT systems.  But did you know that over 75% of IT security breaches come from inside the organisation. Only 16% of these internal breaches are due to malicious intent of your own employees. The rest is simply human error and mis-handling of information they have access to.

AF Services can provide you a comprehensive vulnerability assessment of your physical and logical IT security.  The report will cover:

  • Physical Security
  • Access Procedures
  • Comms Room Environment
  • Network Security
  • External Access
  • Internal Access
  • Wireless Access
  • Email
  • Organisation Servers
  • Workstation Assessment
  • Data, Logical Access and Password Policies
  • Backups, Data Retention and Disaster Recovery
  • Portable Device Policies
  • Smartphones, Laptops, Removable Media and Tablets

All reports will highlight any potential vulnerability and recommendations for action for each section.

Ask yourself, what is the cost to your business if your information is lost, or falls into the wrong hands?

From just £500, can your business afford not to be assessed?
