Does Your Network Management Seem Unmanageable?

Does Your Network Management Seem Unmanageable?

There’s no denying that there is a lot to do in a business environment, and some things take longer than others...or at least they should. Is your business investing enough time into its network management, and all the tasks, processes, and responsibilities that it involves?

Your network is key to your success, as it directly influences the capabilities of your end users. After all, if there is a network issue, some or all of your employees will have a reduced capacity to perform their duties--if they are able to at all. This is only exacerbated by the amount of applications that are migrated to the cloud; applications that are critical to the business’ function. If the network fails, these cloud-based applications can’t be utilized, and productivity grinds to a halt.

Fortunately, this can all be mitigated through proper network management and maintenance. Proper network management can assist a business by helping to improve its internal performance and reliability, as well as helping to keep external threats to the network’s security at bay.

As a few examples of the management and maintenance your network is going to need, please refer to the following list.

  • Updates, including those to your operating system, drivers, and your software.
  • Patches to your cybersecurity systems to ensure that they are updated and resilient.
  • Managing and maintaining antivirus across the whole network.
  • Predicting and avoiding hard drive failures.
  • Maintaining and testing backup solutions to ensure that data will be preserved.

However, there are still other things to be done as well--after all, your business still needs to be run, and those concerns cover far more than just how well your network is managed. Yet at the same time, with an improperly managed network, there could soon be no business for the network to support.

For instance, if your network fails for an extended period, you will find yourself dealing with downtime. This can be due to an improperly maintained piece of network equipment failing, or from someone in your organization improperly utilizing or configuring a part of the network. Either way, without the network being managed and documented, issues like these are likely to be a common occurrence for your business.

If you find that taking care of business has kept you from properly taking care of the business, there’s a solution for you: entrust the management of your network to the pros at OrLANtech. We can monitor your network remotely and keep an eye on it to make sure there aren’t any internal threats to your business, and that you aren’t unknowingly sacrificing productivity due to an unknown network issue.

We help ensure that a business’ network is in tip-top shape so that business has the ability to thrive. We could do the same for your business as well. Just give us a call at 407.228.7290 to get started.
