Or perhaps you have malware on your computers mining bitcoin. Or perhaps your employees have dropbox accounts that draining all of your bandwidth, causing sluggish and inconsistent internet speeds. All of which
We recently had a client have their cable provider drop connection for a few hours one day. It wasn't the first time. Depending on many circumstances, it can be common problem that internet goes down, which can be a major cost of downtime for any business, especially one that runs their VoIP phones and has cloud servers/services. Although most national cable providers offer a business-class internet service, most of them are on their residential network. Hence the affordable price tag, compared to a carrier class internet connection like a T1 which come with a (SLA) Service level agreement. This means guaranteed uptime, and we can talk about at another time. A simple approach to having uptime, especially when your main internet connection can go offline at the worst unexpected time, is to setup a 2nd internet connection. This does not mean if you have a cable connection through Spectrum to purchase a 2nd internet from Spectrum, because if there is an outage in the area I can certainly bet it will affect both connections. Instead look for a 2nd provider from the phone company for example, like a simple DSL internet connection for backup. This will be your backup connection and sometime to failover to. It would be a hassle to disconnect your main connection and plug in a 2nd internet connection. Instead their are main routers that accept 2 internet connections, specifically known as dual WAN. For this client a PepLink balance 20 fit the bill, and was simple to setup. The router has some smarts and uses both active connections called "load balancing". This is better than failover as sometimes your primary connection will be degraded, not completely offline and the router will NOT know to failover automatically. Whereas load balancing

Had coffee with a colleague today, had some great conversations about the IT industry and even shared some war stories. Here's an example of how doing something yourself can turn into a major data loss. Even though we think something is simple, you should hire an IT Pro to complete the task. In this painful example the client's server kept powering off. The IT consultant quickly reminded the business owner they really need a battery backup unit for their server. The client took it upon themselves and bought a UPS or better know as Battery Backup. They plugged it in, connected the server and 'thought' they were protected. Fast forward 2 months and the power went out again. The IT pro was called to the scene to find the server off, even though the battery backup was plugged in. He tested the UPS unit, and as soon as it was unplugged it shut off again, no battery backup. Depending on the UPS manufacture the battery is usually installed backwards (disconnected!) for shipping. When they first setup the unit not only did they fail to read the instructions, they also never tested to see if the battery back up worked. Unfortunately this was a hard lesson for this small business, as they were not on any type of managed backup either. The newest working backup was 2 months old, they lost 2 months of company work and files! 2 full months, could you imagine? Can you afford to loose 2 months of data? Please contact your IT provider even if it seems like a simple task. We will even spec out the correct sized backup unit for your equipment.
There are not many ways to break into a bank; however, gaining access to personal bank accounts is becoming a very common way for criminals to get in. One way this is achieved is by clicking on a link within an email. Spam is very cost effective for cyber criminals, as emailing is a near free service to send tens of thousands of messages in very little time. And the fake emails are often disguised to look like a message sent from the bank. Email is an open door into your network; data passes through it every day. If you are like most small businesses, each email address receives a ton of messages. If criminals want to break in, some will be
