Introducing an Alarm System for your business Network

Guard Dog Network Solution

You have an alarm on your car and house. Why don’t you have an alarm on the most important piece of your business? Someone alerts you of imminent issues with your house (power failure, motion detector). Guard Dog can alert and resolve issues before they stop your business in its tracks. Proactive network maintenance is the most cost-effective way to avoid disruptions to your business. It is easy to think that the new innovations in computer hardware and software would make your equipment virtually “bullet-proof”.  It should work perfectly all the time. Set it up, plug it in and it works just the way we want it to, right? 

The truth is that your computer network is a collection of complex machines and software, communicating simultaneously and performing trillions of calculations using hundreds of parts and wires. Then if we add in the constant strain of the processing needs of various mission critical applications, unwanted viruses and spyware and your own users, it’s a small miracle that the network can operate at all let alone with any type of efficiency. Computer networks like humans need regular check-ups to make sure all parts are functioning as they should and to prevent problems before they start. Guard Dog Network Solution offered by PC Innovations can help you keep your network in peak health, prevent “down” time and operate at maximum efficiency. Here are ten reasons every small business needs regular and proactive server and workstation maintenance:

• Critical security updates need to be applied at least once a month
• Firewall, virus and spyware protection needs regular review and management
• Daily use of servers and workstations by office staff can create random network issues
• Management of backup status, data selected and data testing is critical to data recovery
• Proactive server and workstation standardization minimizes problems
