In challenging economic times like these, it’s best to go with the safe bet when modifying your IT budget. We recommend investing in disaster recovery, security, and remote access. Scrutinize new product purchases carefully and then prioritize on the technologies that deliver the greatest ROI.
We are as susceptible to the allure of flashy technology as much as anyone else, but we choose to invest wisely and avoid succumbing to the temptation. Instead, focus on security, efficiency and redundancy within your network. This is especially for small to midsize businesses with lean staffs and tight budgets.
You can limit the financial affects of business disruptions by enabling your employees to work remotely and access critical network resources securely, from any location, using any device.
Choosing a managed system to block spam provides a central location to manage and monitor your messages, therefore streamlining the process.
Uninterrupted power is necessary both to keep systems up and running and to protect the data in those systems. Even small companies need to protect their equipment from power surges and outages, especially with the winter weather season ahead.
Off-site Data Storage and Backups
Storing your data off-site allows for remote access to your data by employees, even when your on-site company network is down. When choosing an off-site data center facility, consider whether it provides redundant conditioned power and air, reliable back-up power, security and fire safety to protect all hardware, network pathways and backbone connections.
