Lake View is our in-house branded managed service platform that comes fully deployed, configured, managed, and monitored real time by our staff. You can get similar software, but the software by itself does very little without being properly configured. Then monitored real time by technicians that understand the alerts and know how to interpret the data to deploy fixes that actually resolve the issue. Also, the ability to spot false positives that are non-issues but that might not be under certain circumstances or configuration types. We include the service in many of our billing plans or a la carte by its self.

Virus Protection, Detection & Removal
Deploy antivirus software to all the devices managed via lake view through s single easy to use pane of management.

Then real time reporting of virus detection for fast mitigation and removal of the unwanted code.
Backups & Disaster Recovery (BDR)
A single pain of management for making and restoring backups on any device managed via Lake View. Alerts for backups that failed, didn’t finish on time, or finished with the amount of data backed up. The ability to backup the data offsite providing another layer of protection disaster recovery through loss of the office and all the equipment. A rule of thumb is you are only as good as your last backup. There are lots of ways to lose your data including corruption, accidental deleting, CryptoLocker/virus, or a failed drive, performing a grandfather father son (GFS) backup rotation is crucial. This gives you a monthly, weekly full, and a daily incremental backup. Which allows recovery from each day and saves on space since we aren’t doing a full every day. The recovery time can take a while, that’s why snapshots are great because they backup/restore almost instantly and the files can be in use. This does require special software or a virtualized environment. Then we have disaster recovery which snapshots your entire system offsite so your protected against building loss and the restoration time is much quicker. The downside is its much more expensive because you need a second set of your infrastructure at another location. If you can’t afford any downtime it really is the only way to go.

Automated Operating System, Driver & Third-Party Software Updating
Set Patch Policies for Protection take your pick from multiple out-of-the-box options to automate patching within systems. Define which patches should be approved, if they should be staged, when they are to be installed, and how the agent should react in case of a reboot. Prepare for More than Patch Tuesday gone are the days of Microsoft releasing updates, hotfixes, and rollups only on the second Tuesday of the month. Since the release of Windows 10, the update schedule is more fluid. Let your team know within hours of an applicable update being released. Guard Against Third Party Software Attacks
Third-party software is one of the most common attack vectors for hacks and exploits. Get visibility into the industry standard CVSS at the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), and go beyond basic Microsoft patching with protection for commonly exploited third-party software.
