Cyber Security and the Holidays

The holidays are here and I hope everyone made it safely through Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Wait, safely through Cyber Monday? You probably never left the comfort of your sofa as you purchased that drone, did you?

Of course, I’m talking about Internet and network security...

To Cloud or Not to Cloud...

Is that the question?

Not really. First of all, unless you live in a cave (and a pretty remote one at that) you started using the cloud a long time ago. You use it every time you send or receive an email or look something up on the Web. You may be using it to stream movies, TED talks, cat videos and bicycle stunts. It’s where you go to participate in multiplayer games, to update social media and to access services like Dropbox or Salesforce. In fact, if your link to the cloud went down, you’d likely be limited to what’s on your desktop, laptop or tablet, and maybe what’s on the servers down the hall. You’d have to do a whole lot more phoning, snail mailing and walking to your colleague’s desk, and you’d be functioning more or less the way primitives did back in the 1980s. In other words, you already rely heavily on the cloud. We all do.

Take a closer look at the cloud...

Your GPS for Orders

The Benefits of Working with a Project Manager for Unified Communications

By now, most of us have used some form of GPS navigation. I have relied on GPS with varying degrees of success.  Sometimes I have been led in circles, in the wrong direction, through the most tangled routes available and directly into traffic jams. Other times, I’ve been led directly to my destination via the fastest, most efficient route possible. What does this GPS talk have to do with processing orders? Just as you rely on your GPS to get you to your desired destination, you can rely on a Project Manager (PM) to process your orders correctly and keep your project moving in the right direction.

See how you can benefit from working with a project manager to assist you through the post-sale process...

Fiber is the Future

Considerations When Shopping Around for a Business Internet Service Provider

Could you live without the Internet? If asked 10 years ago the answer would likely be, “Oh, I am sure I could find a way.”  If asked five years ago, the answer would likely be, “Umm…I doubt it.” If asked today, the answer would likely be, “Are you crazy? No way!”  Our entire world has turned into apps via the Internet. It’s how we now conduct a majority of our personal and professional business. Between computers, smart phones, tablets, and TVs, it is undoubtedly the way of the world.

Is your business ready for the future of fiber?...

Widespread Advances in Wifi: The Latest Wireless Technologies

I don’t feel that old, but find myself increasingly using the phrase “Back in my day…” 

When I started college in the early 90’s, no one had smartphones or tablets, Wifi didn’t exist on campus, and if you had your own computer a strange device called a modem could connect to the mainframe on campus. In today’s society, we realize the importance of handheld devices, ubiquitous wireless connectivity and the immediacy of communications. As a result, it’s amazing what we can do with today’s technology.

Wireless access in the enterprise, at home, and on the road has become something we all expect. It has to be available, responsive and secure. We also need to connect many different types of devices onto Wifi networks, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. And they all need to work together in harmony. We now have new wireless standards enabling faster, more reliable communications. The “Internet of Things” movement is bringing our cars, thermostats, light switches and more into the cloud so we can better manage our busy lives. Let’s take a look at a few of the technologies making wireless better…
