Whether you have just a single server or multiple servers, we can provide installation and support, including server upgrades. This includes Windows, Linux and Mac estates.
Desktop PC’s, laptops and tablets
This is an area often paid lip service to by IT support companies. Ensuring that PC and Mac devices alike are kept up to date and free of viruses, malware as well as protecting against threats like these and ransomware is critical. We can supply new and maintain devices.
This is an area where we spend much of our time. Often, there is no need for a small business to retain a server in their premises. We can plan and manage migrations away from premises-based servers to cloud servers and cloud services.
Internet Connectivity and MPLS
Another area where there is much interest and action right now. It is possible and even likely that you are not using the most efficient or fast business internet connection – we can tell you what you can get within 5 minutes.
Microsoft Office 365 and other software
Most small businesses and moved or are likely to move to Office 365 as this provides the best and most up-to-date and agile way of working – we can advise on what version is best and manage the migration for you seamlessly as any IT Provider should.
Security, Anti-virus, Malware and Ransomware
As we eluded to above, this is a hot topic right now. We can provide standard offerings from leading software vendors or we can really ‘go to town’ on your IT estate and provide a bespoke project plan to eradicate as much vulnerability as possible.
Advice on GDPR
You may not know about GDPR but it will impact every organisation from May 2018 and you need to be ready for this new set of rules on data being brought in by the European Union. We can help you manage the pain which GDPR will undoubtedly bring. More information is here – GDPR
You can task us to try and hack into your network and when (or if), we do, we can report on how we did it and where the vulnerabilities are. Then we can come up with a plan to deal with them.
Firewalls and routers
Often, these are paid lip service to or left to age. We can provide configuration on many of the more common routers and firewalls and we can also recommend and manage upgrades for you.
This is often an area that requires improvement and people just put up with bad coverage…but there is really no need when you can have a great secure network with guest access for visitors. This can really help with mobility for both data and voice across a premises.
Remote and mobile working
Such is the advancement of technology now, it is possible to work from anywhere, anytime on any device securely and reliably (dependent on connectivity). Also, with Microsoft Office 365 and modern Unified Communications products such as hosted phone systems, there really is no reason for not doing so.
Network switches and network design
Often customer networks are ‘thrown in’ and ‘strung together’ as networks expand. Installing and configuring network switches using proper uplinks, backplanes, V/Lans and segmentation is often overlooked and can pay so many dividends – talks to us for advice.
Comms and Server Rooms
Again, designing your infrastructure correctly required knowledge, expertise and experience. Often, we walk into an area and someone instantly apologises! It doesn’t need to be that way and it is a risk to any organisation to overlook fundamental good practices.
Voice and data cabling – Cat5e, Cat6 and fibre back bones
Designing your structured cabling infrastructure and installing it properly is critical to every device working to industry standards. We find that so many installations are done poorly – an problem area which is often easy to remedy. Note often your IT Provider will not want to do cabling – we do!
