It's our end-of-year hardware sale, take advantage! 

Here are 5 reasons why you should update your hardware.

 

Why Should You Outsource Your IT 1) Meraki offers awesome cloud capabilities 

An option for small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB's) is to go from a physical server on site to a meraki MX device and then putting all their apps and data up in the cloud.  These MX devices (firewalls) are businesses first line of defense against cyber attacks, which is a huge topic of discussion these days.

"For companies looking to upgrade their security, Meraki's best in class firewall solutions are an easy pick."  -Michael Rivera, IT Network Technician

 

Wondering if making the switch to the cloud is for you?

2) A better life cycle

Does your computer take forever to turn on? Are new internet tabs slow to open? Sounds like your desktop/laptop needs replacing. Don't worry, this happens! A typical life cycle for desktops and laptops is generally around 2-3 years, while servers last a tad longer at 4-5 years. A server at the end of its time is harder to notice, which is why businesses make sure to keep those up to date. A server past its cycle would be more vulnerable to cyber attacks.  They're also vulnerable if their software/OS isn't up-to-date and/or receiving all the patches they need. 

3) Unlike humans, computers can add memory

For random-access memory (RAM), over time as new software is developed they use more memory. Therefore, you need more RAM so you can run multiple programs at one time. This is the same for graphics processing unit (GPU), as new games/photo editor programs are made they may need a newer more powerful GPU to process them. 

4) Security you need

With bring your own device (BYOD) becoming more prevalent in businesses of all sizes, having a mobile device management (MDM) solution is essential. Allowing users access to company resources with their own devices while maintaining control of security requires a focused mobile security policy that doesn't interfere with the user's personal data.
