The Reasons Why You Need Server Support

Servers are the lifeblood of any business. This is where your critical information is stored and accessed. As a result, your entire business is affected when you experience an issue with your server. Data loss and downtime are common results of server issues.

In fact, an unprotected and unsupported server should be a business owner’s worst nightmare. That’s why we recommend server support! Having a Server Support system on hand ensures that your computer network systems are operating efficiently and reliably. If your server goes down, your whole network is affected, from the daily operation of your business, to your private and necessary data and information. That’s why it is critical to keep your servers and workstations up and your networks safe. Read more

How to Gain from Outsourcing Your IT

If you’re a business owner and you’re constantly struggling with the increasing need for and use of technology and the frustrations that can come with it, then you’re not alone. Technology is a blessing and a curse. It can be the best thing that has ever happened for your business and simultaneously cause catastrophic and financially devastating roadblocks.

For many, choosing an internal IT department is the best choice. Having 24/7 access to an internal team of technological wizards is priceless – except that it’s not. An internal IT department comes at a cost and few businesses can afford to invest such a large portion of their budget in this. Read more

Your Business is at Risk: The Cybersecurity Threats Every Business Owner Needs to Know

Every business is at risk of a cyber-attack – including yours. While some industries are more at risk than others, no industry or business is safe. In fact, one study proved that hackers attack every 39 seconds. If you, your business, and your employees don’t perfectly follow proper cybersecurity measures, then you have a problem. A key thing to remember is that cybersecurity is a journey, not a destination. You always need to be thinking about how you’re protecting your network. In the world of cybersecurity, we’re always dealing with new kinds of threats because they’re constantly evolving. Unfortunately, it’s not just a box you can check off and forget. You must constantly be monitoring and evaluating your environment and making changes when you see a hole. Read more
