21 Oct The 5 IT Services Your Business Should Be Using
IT services are not a simple matter.
With malware, ransomware, and other security and data issues more important now than ever to make sure that your IT systems are equipped for a rapidly changing landscape.
Read on for an in-depth look at the IT services your business should be using right now.
Data Storage and Backup
One of the most important IT issues right now is security. Dangerous malware and ransomware attacks are on the rise.
If you’re not prepared, your business could end up in a situation that costs you both time and money.
Rather than simply hoping that you won’t be one of the few businesses to actually be attacked, prepare now with managed storage and data backups. One of the smartest things you can do for your business is to simply backup your data in a secure, offsite, managed location.
Network Setup and Security
Another area that is often susceptible to attacks or intrusion for many businesses is the local or WiFi network.
Setting up a secure and functional network for a business of any size is no easy task. There are many layers in most networks with varying degrees of access and other factors to consider.
While it’s certainly possible to set up your own local or WiFi network, this job can become very complex very quickly if you have more than a handful of employees. If you want a network that is secure and functional, setting up a network is often best left to the pros.
If your business maintains a database of any size — both large and small — you know how complex it can be to maintain this level of information.
Don’t leave your business exposed to internal or external vulnerabilities with a poorly managed or insecure database.
VOIP Phone Services
Voice over Internet Protocol, or VOIP, is one of the simplest and most efficient ways to manage a phone system at your business.
If your business needs a phone system, VOIP calling is one of the cost-effective ways to do it. It’s no surprise that this technology continues to explode in popularity with businesses across the globe.
Managed IT Services
IT systems can be complex. Trying to manage many different IT systems can get difficult very quickly and requires specialized, experienced staff to be done properly.
Rather than fragmenting your many IT needs, a managed IT service can consolidate your technical needs. Having one service provider manage everything from your network to security, to your database will ensure complete security coverage and continuity.
