Top Co-Managed IT Companies in Oakland in 2023

Co-Managed IT

This year, Oakland was left in chaos and vulnerability after a devastating ransomware attack that resulted in a complete shutdown of government essential services and systems.  

The attack paralyzed vital services, such as transportation, healthcare, and emergency response, jeopardizing the safety and well-being of the city's residents. To prevent such attacks from happening again, stakeholders recognized the urgent need to prioritize cybersecurity and invest in a robust IT infrastructure. As a business, you should, too. 

However, due to the gravity of the situation, relying on your in-house team to reassess and manage your IT may not be sufficient. Thus, hiring a co-managed IT service provider may be a wiser option. If you’re reading this, you’re most likely considering a co-managed IT solution.
