Technology poses a considerable challenge for small businesses, particularly when problems start to surface and hold back operations. When these problems start to impact workflows, you know that you need to address them. Today, we want to discuss how you can avoid these issues altogether through the use of preventative tactics and measures.
Keep Your Software Updated
One of, if not the best thing you can do, is to keep your software up-to-date whenever possible. Software updates are important for resolving known issues with your software, like bugs, vulnerabilities, and performance issues. If you deploy updates to your operating systems, antivirus software, and other important solutions used by your business, you will be much less likely to experience technical challenges.
Make Sure You Back Up Data
Data loss can be a serious problem for businesses, hence why there is such a focus on data backup and disaster recovery. You’ll want a robust system implemented to maximize the odds of your successful recovery, and Compudata can set you up with it. With our BDR service, you’ll have a network-attached backup system compounded with a cloud-based backup that can be restored to new hardware in a pinch, minimizing downtime and keeping your data safe.
Prioritize Network Security and Safe Browsing
With so many threats to your business lurking on the Internet, it makes sense to err on the side of caution whenever possible while browsing on the Internet. Security measures are only as secure as your employees’ actions and knowledge, so be sure to reinforce safe practices on their end too by educating them on how to identify threats like phishing emails, suspicious websites, and so on.
Rely on Expert Technicians
Technology problems can often be quite complicated, and if you don’t have someone on staff with the expertise to handle them, you might be out of luck. We recommend that any business—whether they have in-house IT resources or not—reach out to a managed service provider like Compudata for additional expertise on challenges related to technology management. More perspectives on issues and more knowledge can never be a bad thing.
