Backup Minded is Forward Thinking

You cannot use what you do not have. And if you lose data and have no way to recover it, then it is as useless as never having it at all. When it comes to business, this can translate into catastrophic loss.

In many cases, your digital data is your entire business. And if that is overstating it for some business types, chances are they still depend on digital data in lots of ways (some of which they probably have not even considered).

Pro Email for Your Business

In the fast paced marketplace of today, you simply cannot afford to fall behind in your communication. Every hour without communication (much less a full day without it) costs money and impacts customer relations.

With email being the gold standard that it is for business communication, you want to make sure you have a professional grade email platform that will not let you down when you need it most. SIO solves this concern for its customers with CloudCollaborate powered by Storeitoffsite.

Serious Protection from Ransomware

Cybercriminals are always looking for a new angle, and everyone is a potential target. Over time, organized crime has become better at targeting people and entities that are more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

One of the most popular ways to obtain money illegally is to engage in ransomware activity. This is the process of encrypting files or otherwise restricting access to a computer system until money is paid to the criminal.

Using IT Flexibility to Your Advantage

Too many times, businesses get stuck in situations where they are prevented from utilizing their own tools because they are not in the right physical location or they are not using tools that work well together.

SIO has long recognized compatibility as one of the top wish list items for companies of all varieties. Running up against these types of limitations causes unnecessary headaches and brings productivity to a standstill.

Welcome to a 3D Printed World

3D printing has come a long way in recent years. Here on our blog, we have catalogued quite a few of the notable innovations as they have been rolled out to the real world. At this point, all aspects of life have been impacted.

The expansion of 3D printed applications in the past few years has been driven by a lot of rapid improvements that have been made with regard to the printers themselves, the printing materials, and the hardware and software that help make the magic happen.

Beating the Ransomware Game

During the month of May, we have seen a real increase in ransomware activity across the globe. Ransomware is a type of cyberattack that utilizes extortion tactics in order to obtain money from unsuspecting users.

With the largest recent attack being referred to as WannaCry (or some variant of that name) about 100 different countries have been affected so far, resulting in some 75,000 cases of ransomware attacks. And these types of attacks are poised to continue.

Using SIO as Your Business Grows

Successful planning takes experience and hard work. As your business expands, your support and resources need to keep pace so that production can continue at the proper pace and reach your customers in the marketplace.

One of the ways that SIO helps you keep up is by providing constant monitoring ability on virtualization resources and performance. That way, you always know your IT system status, plus you have projections on future usage and needs.

Your Best Bet on New Tech

Technology has always proceeded at a fast pace. It is the inherent nature of tech to blast a trail that is essentially ahead of itself because the latest innovations are not always polished finished products when they first arrive to market.

Do not go it alone. Utilizing the services of SIO ensures that you have a direct pipeline to the latest technology advancements. We are experts in the IT field, and we eagerly consume new ideas and integrate them into plans for our customers.

Don't Lose Data: Use Data

Everyone knows that data is important. Not only is it essential to keep data from falling into the wrong hands, it is just as important to utilize data to the advantage of the business, altering services and product offerings in accordance with the needs of those served.

Still, though, many organizations and businesses proceed with their daily business, ignoring the fact that they have neither a data protection plan nor a data recovery plan. Many also do not have protocols in place to handle a data breech or any situation that prevents them from being able to access their data.

Your Checklist for IT Spring Cleaning

Are you getting the most out of your IT systems? Are you maintaining the essential balance between performance and security? These questions are often easier to ask than to answer. Obtaining the services of an IT professional is a great place to start.

SIO specializes in partnering with area businesses, providing a full array of IT services to help each business achieve goals and implement new technology. SIO eliminates the guesswork and coordinates tech services so that everything is working together efficiently.

Store It Offsite is hands down the best IT support services group in Lexington. A few years ago, my company was looking to overhaul its current backup system. While I looked at various online services, the group that stood out the most to me was Store It Offsite. Their pricing structure is very competitive, but being local took them over the top for me. Three years down the road now after making the decision to use Store It Offsite, I could not be happier with my decision to do so. Their service has been second to none, support is prompt and on task, and customer service is impeccable. Our rep is outstanding at listening to what a client's needs are, putting together cost effective proposals, and provide a quality of service beyond what other IT support firms can do. The bottom line is this, if you need cloud server services, off site data backup, or simply hardware supply, give Store It Offsite an opportunity to earn your business.
