Let’s face it: IT can be a pain. Whether you have a small in-house IT team or contract out to a technician, IT issues can result in unexpected costs, unplanned downtime, and ultimately loss in revenue and client confidence. So why not leave IT to people who love it? When you partner with F12, you are drawing on a diverse pool of technically trained staff who understand your business and the importance of uptime, reliability, productivity, security, and, above all else, being someone your clients can count on.
The financial industry is always changing, and it can be expensive to keep up. With our Operational Expense solution available through F12 Plus, F12 makes the upfront investment of hardware, software, and labour to advance your business at a fixed cost per user. We know that, just like technology, your needs are always changing, and that customization is key. That’s why our technology solutions are scalable, allowing you to add resources during tax time and reduce your costs to normal for the remainder of the year.
Your clients trust you with their financial information, but do you trust their data with your current IT systems? There is an inherent risk in managing confidential data. That’s where we come in. F12 looks to alleviate risk by helping you define IT policies and procedures and implement the necessary tools and safeguards to make your network secure. And in case of an emergency? We’ll develop a disaster recovery plan so that you can be confident that your business will be back online with minimal disruption, no matter what.
F12’s technical assessment will reveal any vulnerabilities in your network security to help ensure it is fully compliant with all applicable regulations, equipped to protect confidential client information, and able to stand up to any due diligence requirements. Why should you trust us on this? F12 is a SOC2 Type II and CyberEssentials Plus certified provider with over 20 years of experience in IT security.
