ITCenter Bolsters Cybersecurity with Cyber Essentials Certification

April 19, 2023

ITCenter is Cyber Essentials certified since December 2022. This certification is a UK government-backed scheme that helps businesses of all sizes protect themselves against common cyber threats. Cyberattacks can come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are basic in nature and carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. Cyber Essentials is an information security scheme designed to prevent these attacks.

The certification provides several benefits to organizations, including improved cybersecurity by identifying and addressing common vulnerabilities in their IT systems and networks. This helps to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and data breaches. It also gives organizations a competitive advantage in the marketplace by demonstrating to customers, partners, and stakeholders that they take cybersecurity seriously and have implemented effective measures to protect against cyber threats.

Cyber Essentials' certification can also help organizations comply with various data protection and privacy regulations, such as GDPR, and may be a requirement for some government contracts. In addition, it is a cost-effective way for organizations to improve their cybersecurity posture, as it provides a clear framework for implementing basic security measures.

By achieving Cyber Essentials certification, organizations can rest assured that they have taken important steps to protect their business and customers from cyber threats. ITCenter's Cyber Essentials' certification demonstrates its commitment to providing secure and reliable services to its customers.

Hardware Maintenance

March 16, 2023

IT Operations are an increasingly critical part of the business. As technology has become more complex, so have the systems that support it. Today, technology departments have to ensure that the entire technological ecosystem supports the business in multiple dimensions.

We can help your company focus on your core business while maintaining a high quality of service for your operations.


Single hardware failures can interrupt your service for an indefinite time, and being offline can be damaging to your business.
Every time equipment in your data center fails, you simply place a call, and our team will promptly solve the problem.
The service includes on-site visits, labor, and parts, so there’s no additional cost for any repair.


The Service Level Agreement (SLA) is as flexible as you need it to be

You can define different levels to match the priorities attached to your equipment.


Single Point of Contact

Multiple brands and models within a data center can lead to a stressful and time-consuming task whenever something fails. By acting as your Single Point of Contact, our team takes the lead as soon as you call.


Avoid predictable failures

Our Hardware Maintenance service can be empowered with a preventive maintenance layer with addition of monitoring capabilities.

By monitoring your data center equipment:

  • Detection of pre-failure signs asap
  • Act in advance to reduce the impact on your service


We offer both support options to offer the solution that best suits your needs

Although our service is based on Third-Party Maintenance (TPM), we know the official support can at times be the better option.

That’s why we help you define which maintenance suits each equipment, so you can get a customized service that is still respectful of your interests.



Increase savings with TPM

  • Your maintenance contract savings can go up to 70% if you opt for TPM

Extend the life of your IT

  • Make the most out of your datacenter equipment               

"TPM contracts can offer customers 50% to 70% savings off net OEM support prices.” - Gartner, August 2019

Cyber Threat Predictions for 2023

January 23, 2023

In 2022, Fortinet made several predictions about how the threat landscape would evolve, ranging from attackers spending more effort on pre-attack activities to an increasing number of attack attempts impacting operational technology (OT).

At the beginning of 2023, Fortinet looked at how some of their predictions fared, and how they expect these threats to evolve as they plan for this year.

Fortinet predicted an increase in new vulnerabilities and more "left-hand" activity, or pre-attack reconnaissance and weaponizations, among attackers, paving the way for further escalation in the growth of Crime-as-a-Service(CaaS). And in the first half of 2022 alone, the number of new ransomware variants identified by Fortinet increased by nearly 100% compared to the previous six-month period, with the FortiGuard Labs team documenting 10,666 new ransomware variants in H1 2022, compared to just 5,400 in H2 2021.

This explosive growth in new ransomware variants is largely due to the growing popularity of RaaS on the dark web.

Like streaming media or food delivery apps, Fortinet expects cybercriminal organizations to embrace subscription-based services and purchase plug-and-play ransomware for a quick payday. To increase the pressure on victims, RaaS operators often threaten to release stolen data on the dark web if their demands aren't met.

While the number of ransomware variants introduced is skyrocketing, largely due to RaaS, ransomware payments are also on the rise. The U.S. Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) reported that organizations paid nearly $600 million for ransomware in the first half of 2021, putting the U.S. on track to surpass the combined payouts of the previous decade in a single year.

According to one survey, 72% of respondents said they have a ransom policy in place, and the procedure for 49% of them is to pay the ransom outright.

Fortinet now predicts that the CaaS market will expand significantly through 2023 and beyond, with new exploits, services, and structured programs soon to be offered to threat actors through subscription models.
