5 things every computer needs to avoid disaster (special offer!)
When you run a business that relies on computers to get the job done, something going wrong with those computers is nothing short of a disaster.
If you’re a one-man-show, managing your own device seems simple enough. But, if you employ others who use your company’s computers, ensuring protection isn’t so easy.
You cannot always guarantee that they are going to back up their work. You cannot guarantee that they won’t visit dangerous websites or download risky files. And you cannot expect them to know how to care for the machine to protect its hardware.
Obviously you can’t be in 10 places at once, and although you could try mandating certain practices and installing an antivirus on each user’s computer, it’s often not enough. Not when an issue or attack could ruin your business.
This is why it makes sense to engage IT professionals for managed services. For a moderate monthly fee, you can rest assured that the top 5 things that every computer needs to avoid disaster is taken care of:
- Back ups
As part of our Managed IT Services arrangements, we ensure that every file on every computer (and/or your servers) is backed up. This means that if anything goes wrong, you will not lose all of your hard work.
And when you think about everything that exists on your computer right now – from important emails to complex documents that took you 6 months to create – the value far exceeds the cost.
- Remote management
Imagine you’re working on a report due in an hour, and your computer locks up. You can’t access the file, and you can’t figure out what’s wrong. Who do you call?
If you have a managed services arrangement, you can call us anytime – and we can automatically connect to your computer remotely and identify the problem.
Even more impressive is that the remote management tool we use will automatically alert us to any impending issues on your computers (even if you can’t see them). This means that we will know before they disrupt your work, and can fix them in real time to minimise their impact.

- Endpoint protection
General consumer antivirus software is usually not cut out for business use. It’s also true that many of the most well-known antivirus software are also the lowest rated by IT professionals.
For effective protection from dangerous viruses that can leave you at risk of thousands of dollars (or more) in damages or ransom payments, you need endpoint protection.
Endpoint protection safeguards your entire network of devices against security threats. It ensures every computer, laptop, tablet and other devices have the same standard of security.
Our remote management tool (above) can be linked to this endpoint protection, so that we are always aware of possible attacks, and can take any necessary measures to avoid them affecting your business.
- Web filtering
If you want to stop your staff from visiting certain websites, either to keep them on task or simply to protect your company’s security, you need web filtering.
Otherwise known as content control software, web filtering can easily be added to any managed services agreement, and we can update or change the listed sites whenever you need us to.
- System clean
You may not be able to see it, but your computer accumulates a heap of “junk” over time. This junk can build up, and make your computer slower and less effective.
As with any physical object, your computer also collects dust which (over time) can damage your hardware.
Our managed services agreements can contain system clean provisions, which include:
- Deleting temporary files
- Getting rid of dead space
- Physically removing dust
- Reapplying thermal paste to the CPU and graphics card
If you want to avoid serious damage to your business, you need to take the protection of your IT seriously.
For a reasonable monthly fee, we can manage all of the above for you, so you can focus on running your business without disruption.
