Applications and services
Reliable IT server and network management
Servers and network devices have been the mainstay of SMB computing for many years. A May 2020 report by ZDNet indicates that despite growing interest in the cloud, 63% of SMBs use internal servers, either on-premises or in remote data centers, and 40% plan to purchase additional servers soon.
Supporting your IT systems and communications networks is the core of our managed services platform. You can count on Carefree IT to provide competent 24/7 management of your internal equipment racks, towers, data centers and infrastructure.

Smartphone and mobile app integration
Smartphone and tablet adoption have virtually exploded since Apple introduced the first iPhone in 2007. Billions of users worldwide now have at least one smart device. A new movement called mobile-first advocates designing apps and services primarily for mobile devices rather than PCs.
Carefree’s IT support experts can help you develop and implement an optimal strategy for your company, one that considers productivity, cost, security, and your business and users’ needs.
Server and application virtualization
Virtualization is a technology used for many years by larger organizations to drive more efficiencies from their IT investments. Essentially, virtualization uses special software to convert a single physical server into multiple virtual machines (VMs). This configures the server to perform many tasks concurrently, and because today’s computers are so fast, the processes appear to be occurring simultaneously.
VMs can be set up and configured quickly, and can be reconfigured or shut down equally promptly when no longer needed.
While technologies exist to virtualize most of today’s servers, your best approach may be to consider cloud-based solutions that allow you to lease preconfigured virtual servers, applications, databases, security and more on demand.
Cloud migration strategy and implementation
It’s hard to find anyone who doubts the cloud is here to stay. In January 2020, Information Age reported on the top 10 benefits of cloud computing, concluding that many companies are jumping on board because the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages and it is now much easier to move to the cloud.
Many companies start with a hybrid approach. They move a few services, like email and office applications, to the cloud and leave their main production apps in-house until later.
Our cloud experts can help you select a cloud strategy that’s right for your business and provide ongoing IT support services that bolster your implementation team every step of the way.
Data analytics and big data
Companies are increasingly using internal data to track results and manage performance against KPIs.
However, modern data analytics has evolved beyond tracking and analysing the past, to predicting future performance. Today’s analytics programs collect data from multiple internal departments, both structured and unstructured, including streamed data from website visits and social media posts, and external data from government or commercial sources.
Data is consolidated into warehouses and data marts, where sophisticated statistical analyses are performed. Then projections are generated and displayed on interactive, user-friendly dashboards.
Our team and network of data consultants can help you design your analytics strategies and data management programs.
Cybersecurity and data privacy
Growing security challenges are crucial factors in every aspect of today’s business. Malware, phishing and ransomware attacks are producing huge yearly increases in the number of data and privacy breaches.
Your security program should not only employ strong technical controls but maintain a continuous program to educate users and reinforce the need for good security hygiene among staff, contractors, third-party suppliers and business associates.
Our security experts can help you analyze your security risks and craft a comprehensive, multifaceted defence against cybercriminals.

Why Choose CarefreeIT?
CarefreeIT was the first IT managed services provider (MSP) company in Ontario to develop and market a comprehensive cybersecurity bundle specifically targeted to the small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) market. We realized early on that SMBs were being targeted by hackers, were vulnerable, and were getting compromised. Unfortunately, cyber protection services were designed for enterprise-class companies and was unaffordable for SMBs. Our unique Total Protection Plan (TPP) solved the problem by delivering leading edge security protection to SMBs at an affordable cost.
The TPP provides 24x7x365 cybersecurity expert “live eyes” on your network. It also provides education for your team, a set of policies for you to implement, and dark web scanning on your behalf. It’s designed and delivered by certified cybersecurity experts. If the security of your systems and data are essential to your business, the TPP gives you the peace of mind to sleep well at night knowing your IT, your valuable data, and your reputation are protected.
No other MSP has the cybersecurity expertise, experience and services to protect your business both reliably and cost-effectively. We’re successfully protecting many business in the insurance, finance, accounting, legal, retail and non-profit industries.
