In the spirit of the season, we’ve taken a moment to appreciate all the positive ways in which technology impacts our daily lives and businesses.
Since its first application, technology has transformed how we conduct business. Not all of these changes have been positive – hackers and cyber-attacks are just as much of a part of our lives now as effective malware and system updates. But for every downside that comes with technology, there’s an equal if not greater benefit we are more than thankful for.
Although there are many aspects of technology we are grateful for, here are the top 3 reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving.
  1. Cyber Thieves Keep A-Knockin’ But They Can’t Come In. A study presented at the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks showed that small-business networks are attacked every 39 seconds by some type of hacker or malicious software. Thankfully, having the proper firewall and office network security tools can prevent even the most determined cyber hacker from getting his hands on your network. Are your systems covered?
  2. Downtime Should Be A Thing Of The Past. Thanks to monitoring and maintenance tools that are openly available, any reputable computer company can now actually notice when things go awry and prevent your computers from having issues. Hot fixes, patches and security updates are generally items that, when maintained on a regular basis, keep a network healthy and up and running. If, for some reason, your network still has some kind of downtime, cloud-based remote management tools allow your IT professional to access your system from anywhere, getting you up and running more quickly than ever before.
  3. If Disaster Strikes, You Can Be Back Up & Running In Minutes Instead of Days. In addition to lost data, many businesses’ operations would be completely down for days or weeks if a major disaster like fire, flood or theft ever occurred. Here’s where Backup & Disaster Recovery solutions (BDR) can help you feel very thankful indeed. Most of today’s BDR solutions include a “Virtualization” component, which means an exact “picture” of your server and computers is taken throughout the day and stored elsewhere. If you ever need to get back up and running, your IT company simply restores that image…and you’re back in business.
