Co-Managed IT Services
Every business is different, and so are its IT needs. With Braden’s co-managed services, companies can customize their service plans to include any of the following capabilities. You can choose how much or how little you want to keep in-house.
Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM)
RMM solutions monitor a company’s network including its hardware and software. When a problem surfaces, Braden’s IT team is alerted. Using remote management tools, they investigate and resolve problems in real-time.
With RMM, Braden can detect network errors, identify potential equipment failures, and proactively maintain network devices. These capabilities increase uptime, reduce unplanned maintenance, and provide consistent network operations.
Cloud Computing and SaaS Management
More organizations are looking to the cloud for computing. They use cloud services such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), or Platform as a Service (PaaS) to improve operations. Implementing these services enables businesses to operate without worrying about hardware capacity.
Managed IT service providers (MSPs) can integrate clients into a public or private cloud system that eliminates the costs associated with physical servers and network hardware. Experienced MSPs such as Braden can use cloud capabilities to scale resources to meet client needs and configure operations to deliver a more agile system.
Moving to the cloud often means using more SaaS-based solutions. Without proper management, employees can download unauthorized software, adding to the growing use of shadow IT. Braden manages SaaS implementations to ensure that only secure solutions are used.
Advanced Network Monitoring and Data Backup
Data is the heart of any organization. It is what separates a company from its competitors. Protecting your business data means monitoring data transfer and storage. By utilizing automated tools to manage multiple servers, Braden can check for data corruption or leakage, and escalate notifications to reduce compromises or downtime.
Braden offers onsite or offsite data storage. Because reliable backups are essential for business continuity and disaster recovery plans, Braden ensures that the process is working properly. In the middle of a crisis is not the time to discover your backups are not working. You want your business up and running as quickly as possible to minimize operational disruptions.
No business is immune from cyberattack, but a managed service provider with cybersecurity capabilities can help protect against a compromise. Braden’s cybersecurity capabilities include:
- Security Awareness Training
- Advanced Endpoint Security
- Email Security, including backups and archival copies
- Endpoint Detection and Response
Mobile device management should be part of any cybersecurity strategy. As more employees use their personal devices for business, it’s important to have a well-designed management program.
Infrastructures are becoming more complex as companies move to the cloud while maintaining on-premise operations. Sometimes, finding the expertise to manage the intersection of cloud and on-premise operations can be difficult.

Developing a comprehensive security plan that includes the following can reduce the likelihood of a successful security breach.
Braden provides security monitoring tools to help identify potential threats and establish controls to prevent intrusion to keep your company’s data and software safe. It can provide infrastructure control for cloud-based implementations. Security monitoring tools log activities and events to aid in network analysis of possible risks.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
Security Operation Centers (SOC) are groups of cybersecurity experts who analyze network data for potential threat vectors. SIEM tools help SOC analysts by collecting and aggregating data for review. As hackers become more sophisticated, the demands on SOC personnel have grown exponentially. By deploying SIEM tools, security experts can focus on analyzing critical data rather than on collecting it.
Managed Detection and Response
With Braden’s managed detection and response, monitoring tools are configured to detect and respond to suspicious activity on the network. Whether it is an automated response or an escalated notification, our team of cybersecurity experts is continuously analyzing your network for cyber risks.
Managed Vulnerability Services
Every system has weaknesses. Some are more critical than others. Managed vulnerability services help organizations identify weaknesses and prioritize those with the highest risk.
Compliance Managed Services
Industries such as healthcare, financial services, and government set security standards that organizations must meet. Failure to meet those standards can result in fines and other penalties. Many industries require annual compliance checks to ensure that security standards are being maintained. Braden’s security teams help clients comply with industry-specific standards such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and GDPR.
