As the New Year begins, you might be setting resolutions not only for yourself, but also for your business. When you look at areas for improvement, you should take a look at your technology and security posture. Ask the following questions ensure that you have the right technology in place as you welcome in 2018. Seek the services of a technology solutions provider if you find you are not quite yet ready for the year ahead.

Do you have adequate support and monitoring?
Do your employees have dedicated support they can call on when their computers aren’t working or the network is down? Is your anti-virus and other software being consistently patched and updated? If it’s a challenge to keep up with the behind the scenes tasks, managed IT services might help you take care of the day-to-day so you can focus on your business.

Are you confident your network is secure?
Do you have a firewall that’s configured to meet your security needs? Are you backing up your data consistently, to prevent loss in the event of a disaster or ransomware attack. Do you institute policies with staff, such as secure password management and proper user behavior.

Is your business using the cloud?
Is it time to assess your cloud readiness.  It might be time to do a cost/benefit analysis of your legacy systems, to see if it makes sense to venture to the cloud. Often, a hybrid environment is the best approach but assessing the impact on your network, users, and budget would be prudent.
