If you’re in business, you need a computer. But having computers can raise other concerns. We’ve seen breaches, stolen personal identity information, and security concerns. Listed below are the 5 most common IT problems companies experience.
The 5 Most Common IT Problems
1. Internal Security Measures for Employees
Employees are responsible for a whopping 48% of all data breaches in business. This risk is a serious problem. Negligent employees can lose data to Phishing attacks, weak passwords, or unauthorized access to information.
For a company to mitigate this risk, they should create a map of who has access to sensitive information inside the company’s network. Then monitor it regularly. Restrict access when necessary to avoid a breach of important information.
Companies can overcome weak passwords by implementing a password program that keeps them all stored in one place. It will also create strong passwords and store them, so remembering them won’t be an issue.
2. Outdated Equipment and Software
Small businesses with tight budgets fall victim to this one all the time.
Because the budget doesn’t allow for the best of the best, they settle for what’s working, and because they know upgrades are expensive, and the integration of new hardware and software are costly, they choose not to do it. One thing that can help is regular maintenance on your computer and current devices. Use support services like All Synced Solutions whenever necessary to maintain the integrity of your computers, and prevent any errors like crashing, freezing, and slow performance. All Synced Solutions can also recommend the most cost-effective upgrades to your equipment.
3. New Technology Integration
To avoid integration issues, ensure All Synced Solutions evaluates your current hardware to determine if it’s compatible. As they say, you don’t want to put lipstick on a pig. Developing new technology to generate more sales may lead to old hardware and software that can and will expire.
4. Data Loss and Recovery
Do you have a data loss recovery plan in place? Is your data going to the cloud? Are you backing up your data? What if you knew losing up to 100 files could cost your company 35k+ dollars? Lost data results from several events, such as:
- Power outages
- Cyber attack
- Equipment malfunction
- Human error
Put a plan in place to get your company up to speed and use a cloud-based data backup so you don’t lose data or a ton of money.
At All Synced Solutions, we can help create a disaster recovery plan for your business. A disaster recovery plan should include:
- Backup, disaster, and business continuity plan
- IT support contacts
- Back up servers
- Cloud services
- External storage
5. Applying a Band-aid is not a Comprehensive Solution
The pace of business is fast-paced. It may be tempting to apply a band-aid to fix your technology, but it may not fix the root cause of the problem. If the same issues continue, you may be heading to a disaster or total meltdown. All Synced Solutions can help determine the health of your technology. It’s wise to do this before it becomes a disaster.
