A comprehensive review of your, security, redundancy and expenditure of your business’s IT systems.

How safe, secure and reliable are your computer systems and network? If your data became corrupted, do you have backups? Are you safe from viruses, malware, ransomware or external intrusion? How long would it take you to get things back up and running if there was a catastrophic failure? What would the cost be to your business per hour of downtime?

If you do not know the answer to these questions, or are not 100% satisfied with the answers you have, then please read on.

We have 3 main goals when assisting our clients with their IT Systems

* secure and reliable network

* disaster recovery strategies

* operational efficiency

As part of our IT consultation process, we like to run an IT and expenditure audit. This will allow us to discover if there are any security or reliability issues, as well as any areas that we can make recommendations to decrease expenditure and improve efficiency.

A lot of businesses are focused on doing what they do best and often don’t have the time or the experience to find out if they are at risk or if they are spending too much on IT and communication. We have done a number of Audits on businesses and found that they are susceptible to malicious attack or spending thousands of dollars more than they need to be.
