- A truck has just run into the telegraph pole in front of your office. No Internet.
- “Somebody” ignored all the reminders from the Internet Service Provider that the Credit Card Expiry Date is past its use date. No Internet.
- Your IP address has been blacklisted because somebody connected a malware infected laptop which sent out a few thousand junk mails. No Internet.
Think again. All of the above incidents happened to one or other of our clients in the recent past. Never mind your modem or router simply going on strike, despite top phone and power line line surge protection.
How long can your company operate smoothly without Internet? In most cases, your administration simply stops. No emails means no orders, no client communications. No browsing. If your applications are “cloud” based, you might as well send everybody home.
How can you prevent this from happening? It’s relatively straight forward. Deploy a Router which has the ability to use a 3G or 4G modem as an alternative to the standard ADSL connection, and implement it straight away. In other words, don’t wait till the normal line has been cut. The higher-end routers (generally about the $300 mark) also have other benefits such as better firewalls.
But you get more: a Unified Threat Management (UTM) device. This goes far beyond the standard router. It includes top-notch Internet Security before it comes inside your network. It allows you to setup filters of what can / cannot be surfed. It will automatically block “bad” websites before they hit your network. You get a report on who surfed what and how much bandwidth they have used. It protects against Intrusions, Denial of Service Attacks and a swag of other nasties. Every business has its own specific needs and we treat your requirements on an individual basis.
