Don't Let March Become Madness for You

This time of year, the people of Lexington rally around UK basketball as the team prepares for competition in the SEC tournament and then the NCAA tournament. March is an exciting month, one that brings our wonderful community even closer during the big games.

Too often, however, the madness we see on the basketball court rears its ugly head in the office, as well. And this isn't the kind of madness anyone enjoys because it involves lost data. Oh, no!

Staying on the Edge of Computing Technology

This month has been all about the tech we love here at SIO. We have enjoyed writing about it, sharing the latest information about it, plus offering our own tech basket giveaway valentine. No better way to spend our February!

Before the month gets away, however, we still have time enough to touch on one more tech trend. As we mentioned back in December, edge computing is just beginning to show an impact on business productivity and efficiency.

Adding Cameras and Security to Your Defensive Mix

We love technology. And considering this is the month that gives us V Day every year, we are exploring some of the tech gadgets that are not only cool but lovably useful, too! Today, we explore camera technology and how business security has benefited from the growth of this industry.

At SIO, we specialize in using technology to help protect businesses in a variety of ways. We protect data by providing secure methods of data transfer, and we also protect data by offering offsite cloud data backup storage, as well.

How Tech Took Over Our Hearts

We have always been fascinated by technology. New and different ways of performing tasks are interesting, but what really puts it over the top is when tech allows us to do things we have never done before and when tech allows us to cut down the time it takes to do something we already do.

Who does not enjoy having new fun options in their life? And who could not use a little extra free time? Indeed, it is easy to see why there are always people working on the next technological innovation. It is exciting and rewarding crossing over into that next frontier.

The Importance of Password Security

Did you ever pass notes in school? Maybe even a Valentine's Day card to that special someone across the classroom? If so, you know the particular humiliation of having that note intercepted and either shared by harassing peers or a disapproving teacher.

Well, the concept is much the same with Internet security except the stakes are much higher. While you may have risked some temporarily hurt feelings with the schoolroom notes, your business is passing and storing much more sensitive information that could affect a greater number of people.

Talking About Love, Drones, and 3D Printing

February begins tomorrow. And around here at SIO, we're enjoying the lead-up to the enchanted holiday smack dab in the middle of the month: Valentine's Day. So with that in mind, we thought it would be fun to address some of the things we love this month in our blogs.

Anyone who follows us regularly probably has noticed that we keep tabs on drone technology. Over time, this has taken us into the realm of federal regulations guiding the use of drones, as well as the companies that build and improve the drones themselves.

Microsoft Office 365 is the most widely utilized platform for work email. As such, it is important for companies to understand their options with regard to email backup and recovery.

Monitoring and Enhancing IT Performance with SIO

Keeping an eye on IT performance isn't always as easy as you might think. For one thing, there are so many variables that it's sometimes difficult to get a read on which factors are influencing the end effects, even when you know what you're analyzing.

For SIO customers, however, it's a totally different story because we provide tools that eliminate the guesswork when it comes to assessing IT performance. And once armed with real statistics and metrics, business owners can make wise decisions about their IT departments.

New in 3D Printing: A Software Push

3D printing is an industry with a lot going on, to say the least. You have inventors, hardware manufacturers, software creators, and people contributing from then private sector, public sector, education sector ... well, you see what I mean.

And all of these factors have an influence on how the industry evolves. New hardware equipment allows software developers and 3D printer users to perform new tasks, while new user demands help propel the next generation of hardware units.

Fast, Secure Data Sharing Via SIO

It has been said about businesses in the 21st century: You are your data. Indeed, the internal information you process in order to offer goods and services is combined with the data you collect from your customers on a daily basis. And that paints the picture of what your business is.

SIO understands the importance of data security, data management, and data sharing to its customers. Businesses run on data, and they need it to be safe, organized, and available so that employees can do their jobs and customers can get what they need.

I've used this company for over two years and have been completely satisfied with their services. They have been great to work with, and I always feel that my data is safe.
