Lessons in Data Backup

Do you have a recovery plan in place?

Are your files backed up every night?

Should you outsource your backup processes?

It’s important to have a backup when things go wrong. The power could go out, a virus could steal your files or your files could even be held for ransom. Are you prepared? If you’re not, you need to speak with a computer support specialist in your area to discuss your options for data backup and recovery.

Most business owners will agree that backups are important, but the problem is they don't actually do anything to a) put a comprehensive backup plan in place, and b) regularly monitor it to verify it is working.

Security is Everybody’s Business. If You Don’t Want it to Be Yours, You Better Sign Up for a Maintenance Plan!

Are you frustrated with your current IT Solutions company?

Or, maybe you don’t have anyone to call for help and support when things go wrong.

At Network Services Group, we work with small business to make their experience with technology both positive and productive.  We want our customers to experience the positive side of what technology has to offer, so that they can focus on what they do best – running their business!  

One of the things that we do is offer maintenance plans to our clients. These maintenance plans will keep your servers and workstations up to date, verify backups, scan for viruses and malware, and check system health.  

There are a ton of viruses and malware floating around.  If you aren’t careful the internet can be a dangerous place.  Here’s a short list of things you can do to protect yourself:

  1. Scammers are going to try to trick you.  Don’t click on stuff you receive in emails.  Be suspicious and always verify unexpected or unusual requests via a known source.
  2. Protect yourself and make sure you have good backups.
  3. Antivirus software is a good start, but you also need to be diligent about keeping your computers and devices up to date with security patches.
  4. There is no substitution for user training.  Make sure your entire team is aware and has some basic training.

You need to be proactive about protecting your computers and data from viruses and scams. Having a maintenance plan will help ensure your systems are safe and sound.  

Our formula for success is knowing what it is, getting it done, and effectively communicating the results. We put the best interests of our clients first, and we work diligently to put all of the pieces together to make them work. Above all, we believe in making it a great experience for you! Imagine how great you’ll feel when you know that your network and computers are secure, your backups are working, and your computers are working. 

We want to see you succeed!  We’ll take care of the technology so that you can focus on taking care of your business.  Technology that works the way you want it to, when you want it to.
