Macktez uses a carefully chosen collection of software tools (referred to collectively as “Macktez Management”) to proactively administer and support our clients’ technology systems.
For many businesses, to purchase and manage all of the software needed to do this on their own would be prohibitively complex and expensive, but by bundling services and pooling the time to manage them across our clients, we are able to offer them at industry leading costs and on a flexible monthly term. This reasonable monthly subscription covers both our cost for the software and our time required to manage, maintain, and support these technologies, and allows client costs to predictably scale up and down according to current needs.

When holistic improvements to a client’s IT infrastructure, digital security, and user experience are desired, we recommend enrolling in the Macktez Management Core Suite.
While each of the included services can be purchased individually, they have been bundled together here to reduce total cost, simplify billing, and provide a comprehensive solution to the myriad of needs in front of the most companies.

$30 per identity per month
Identity Management simplifies and tightens security by allowing staff to use the same passwords for their local computers and a range of critical web services, reducing the number of passwords they need to keep track of and streamlining the process of hiring and termination. It uses secure bindings to reduce room for errors and close security gaps without dependence on a physical office.

$35 per workstation per month
Workstation Management provides a core set of tools on end user computers that permits remote access, software patching, antivirus and malware protection as well as asset management, inventory, and documentation. Additionally, they permit enforcement of standard security policies such as screen lock, and local encryption. To keep this cost as low as possible, support is billed hourly and only as needed.

Backup Management monitors the status of backups and identifies potential issues before they cause disruption. Ongoing monitoring also better equips us to respond to vulnerabilities more quickly. Manual tasks are grouped together and performed on a scheduled, recurring basis, efficiently ensuring that automated tools are working properly.

$350 per server instance per month
Server Management includes automated monitoring of system health, installation of security patches and routine maintenance, as well as our time to supervise and administer local and offsite backups. For additional details, terms, and conditions, see macktez.com/management/server
$300 per network site per month
Network Management reports on device status to help to identify potential vulnerabilities before they cause problems. Ongoing monitoring of network infrastructure better equips us to respond to service outages, hardware failures, and security vulnerabilities when they do occur. Manual tasks are grouped together and performed on a scheduled, recurring basis, efficiently ensuring that automated tools are working properly.

$400 per domain per month
Domain Management is built on a foundation of thoughtful administration and industry-standard domain and DNS based tools, collectively leveraged to enhance your email and web security and address the need for fortified digital security standards. We ensure you are set up with a securely hosted and configured domain registrar and Domain Name System (DNS), then configure and enable industry standard tools for email security (SPF, DKIM, and DMARC) to minimize the ability of malicious actors to attack your domain while providing email recipients greater confidence that messages from you are authentic.

To simplify billing and reduce administrative overhead, Macktez recommends moving from a purely hourly support arrangement to one of Managed Support. The key differences are that we bill in advance, and for a fixed fee that includes up to a predefined number of hours. In addition to simplifying administrative overhead, Managed Support also includes quarterly check-ins with an assigned account manager, a custom web portal to streamline the submission and tracking of support requests, and a discounted rate for the number of hours purchased in advance. While overages are billed at our standard hourly rates, the specific cost and number of hours included in your Managed Support plan is only a monthly commitment, and can be revised up or down as needed.
