Your small business network is crucial to the daily function of your business. If the network malfunctions, it can cripple your business for however long it’s down. There are many things that can cause a network to stumble, here are just a few of the more common mistakes that business owners make with their networks.
Every Update is Important
After the initial setup, many business owners just forget about their network until something goes wrong. Downloading and installing every update is crucial to your network’s security and function. If you just leave things as they are, it may function for a time but it will eventually get so slow that it will hinder productivity. Those updates contain software that optimizes your network and makes it work for you. Your network should support your business, not inconvenience you.
Cords and Ports
Computers and networks have so many cords and ports. It is incredibly easy to put something in the wrong place. Partnering with a reliable, experienced managed services provider such as Global Harvest Networks will ensure every cord goes where it needs to go.
Securing Your Network
So many small business owners don’t think that they need to secure their network. Their logic is that hackers won’t be interested because they are just a small business. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Hackers will search the Internet for an unsecured port and break in and corrupt it just for fun. Securing your network is incredibly important, no matter how small your business is!
