Efficiency Expert: Data Backup and Disaster Recovery

November 8th, 2011 Comments off

Performing regular data backups is a mundane but essential job that is often not appreciated until the inevitable happens – the loss of your business’ critical data. This can be caused by many occurrences – hardware failure, data corruption due to a malware infection or virus, physical damage to your place of business such as fire or storm damage, theft or vandalism, or simply an innocent employee error. The task is becoming ever more difficult due to exponential data growth, which leading IT research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc. estimates to be about 45% annually. It is challenging to find backup and disaster recovery solutions that are both efficient and cost-effective as the amount of your critical data continues to grow.

Data backup and disaster recovery planning are best practices for every business, regardless of size. Small Business Technology Solutions can provide you with a simple, reliable, affordable AUTOMATED backup system that integrates both on-site backup for situations where local data recovery is feasible and cloud-based off-site backup in the event of the complete loss of data. Backups can include email messages, contact lists, files, databases, or even entire volumes. Data is encrypted during transmission to the cloud and is immediately available for remote recovery. Three copies of the data are maintained at separate locations – one locally at your place of business and two others in geographically separate data centers. All backups are managed and monitored by professionals and require little effort or expertise on your part.

Contact Small Business Technology Solutions today for a review of your data backup needs. For just a reasonable monthly fee, you can have this little slice of heaven and rest easier knowing your data can be restored if and when the need arises.


Why we choose Barracuda – SPAM Filtering

September 16th, 2010 Comments off

Here is an interesting article put out by Barracuda, the worldwide leader in Email protection. Our SPAM filtering service employs their technology to protect our customers and their businesses. For more information on our service please visit our website, or call one of our offices.

You may have heard about a rampant email Trojan – dubbed “Here You Have” – that circulated late last week. According to our Barracuda Labs research team, the spam first appeared at 8:44 a.m. PDT on Thursday, Sept. 9 and continued to spike throughout that afternoon. Volume dropped off rapidly once the account hosting the malware was shut down.
The virus spread like wildfire. According to reports, it nearly halted work at offices around the world as these messages flooded the inboxes at major organizations including NASA, Comcast, AIG, Disney and more.  I am very happy to report that our security analysis team worked quickly with engineering to ensure that immediate protections were in place to protect our customer base.  And in fact, we immediately blocked more than 200,000 of these messages outright.  This is a faster response time than the majority of our competitors and is an illustration of Barracuda Networks’ ability to respond to the latest threats quickly, and through the power of Energize Updates, we are able to arm our products with powerful protections to keep the networks of you and your customers safe.
The Barracuda Labs team posted a blog entry (“
Here You Have” spam teaches an old worm a new trick) with additional details on this attack, and it is the current Featured Entry off the Barracuda Labs home page. Please check the site often, as we will continue to post updates regarding major outbreaks and trends that we are monitoring as part of our ongoing commitment to providing our customers with the best protection possible.
Thank you for your continued support!
