Data needs protection. From accidental deletion, from dying hard drives, and from other threats. If your business has files that it cares about, then you simply must backup your data. There are several strategies, and we can help you find the right strategy for you. We recommend Symantec Backup Exec for backups, both on- and off-site. There are also many other strategies and options. Where will you store these backups? See Network Attached Storage (NAS), below.
Computer viruses and other malware have become very sophisticated and very dangerous in recent years. With so much at stake these days, the threats they pose have become very serious. For small groups and individuals, we recommend Norton Antivirus, and offer installation service. For enterprise installations, we reccomend Symantec Endpoint Protection, which is more cost-effective for centrally-managed multiple-computer or Windows Active Directory domain installations.
Bring bulk storage online with a NAS. Featuring data protection against dying hard drives, NAS appliances provide easy access to data in large quantites at very reasonable prices. NAS plug directly in to your network and are accessible in a variety of ways. They integrate nicely with an Windows Active Directory Domain permissions, or stand on their own for smaller groups of people. NAS is also a good solution if you need a place to store data backups from your main file servers.
