Internet Identity: Changing the Way You Interact Online

Imagine you’re having a conversation with someone you just met. You aren’t going to tell them your entire life story after having known them for only 5 minutes. Instead, you might tell them where you are from and they will observe things like your height and eye color. Over time, the two of you may have multiple conversations in which small pieces of your life can be pieced together. Eventually, you both get to know each other from talking, observing, and sharing parts of your own story. In much the same way, your Internet identity can be revealed every time you go online.

Out of Date Virus Scanner

You probably get that annoying pop-up window down in the lower right hand corner of your screen about your virus scanner. If you’re like most users, you probably even click on ignore or update later, but if you knew the damage that could cause, you wouldn’t. Out of date virus scanners can actually be just as harmful to your data and your computer as not having a virus scanner.

Could Buying A Computer Actually INCREASE Your Cash Flow?

If you dread writing checks for a network upgrade because it hits your cash flow in a big way, then you’ll want to look into HaaS or “hardware as a service.”

HaaS is becoming a more common option for businesses because it allows you to pay for ALL your IT services – hardware, installation, security, backups, applications, Internet, etc. – as a flat-fee service, thereby eliminating the heavy cash-flow hit of upgrading or expanding a computer network and giving you the ability to write off 100% of your IT expenses without having to depreciate those assets over time. Additionally, your IT provider takes total responsibility for the maintenance of your network.

Like businesses that lease their equipment, HaaS customers pay monthly for their infrastructure. This allows them to keep more cash in their pocket and gives them the tax advantage of converting a typical capital expense into an operational expense. But unlike leasing, HaaS can also do the following:

  1. No More Expensive Surprise Upgrades. With HaaS, your computers are automatically replaced with new ones every 3-4 years, ensuring compatibility with almost any software refresh. No end-of-lease buyouts of outdated equipment or ever having to release equipment again.
  2. Warranties Are A Thing Of The Past. With a HaaS program, you get your equipment AND the service included in the monthly cost. Anything that goes wrong with the computer (like the inevitable computer crash just days after your warranty expires) is our problem to resolve. Plus, since HaaS computers are replaced on a regular schedule, you don’t have to settle for refurbished parts or old computers for long.
  3. One Easy Invoice. Purchasing via a HaaS program is like having a condo. You get control of what goes in it, but don’t have to worry about maintenance, building-code issues or updating the façade. Everything in one low monthly fee!

Looking to upgrade equipment while saving cash?
Call us today at 317-524-5700 to find out if HaaS is right for you.

 

Checking Your Software Sources

 
Imagine sitting down to your computer first thing in the morning, opening up the software you downloaded last night, and then realizing that nothing is working properly. It can be a completely frustrating and overwhelming feeling to know that your computer has been hacked, corrupted, or even attacked with malware. Knowing where your software comes from and who it is coming from is the first line of defense when it comes to keeping your computer safe.
