Why maintenance agreements matter
Because your IT systems underpin all of your business’s mission-critical processes, IT downtime simply isn’t an option. If customers can’t access your online resource – or employees can’t perform everyday work tasks – your business reputation, your productivity and your profitability can all suffer.
When a security incident leads to IT downtime, the results can be far-ranging and long-lasting:
- Failure of sales to customers – reducing your revenues
- Legal penalties – for failing to meet service level agreements
- Damage to supplier relationships – leading to supply chain problems
- Disruption of internal business processes – reducing your productivity
- Additional bank charges – if essential transactions are delayed
- Bad publicity – that can take years to recover from
- Damage to your brand and business reputation
- Direct costs of rectifying IT issues
Kaspersky Maintenance Service Agreement (MSA) gives you a choice of premium, extended support service levels that treat your security issues as high priority and help keep your business running smoothly.
