We Chucked the Auto Attendant a Long Time Ago, and Here’s Why

Please listen carefully as our menu options have changed, for sales, press 1…

Come on! Is it just me, or do phone system auto attendants just drive you up the wall?

March 31 is World Backup Day!

disaster recoverySmall and medium-sized business owners must take every precaution against cyberattacks, and World Backup Day is the perfect time to assess the cybersecurity tools in your arsenal. In the current high-threat environment, it is good for business to add as many layers of digital protection as possible. That’s where File Folder Sharing (FFS) comes into play.

FFS is the practice of sharing digital resources, like documents, multimedia (audio or video), graphics, programs, images, and e-books. While the most obvious business benefit of FFS is convenience, granting your team members the ability to collaborate no matter where they are, FFS also gives you an added layer of cybersecurity protection.

Using FFS to Back-up Your Business Data

Securing backups in the cloud can save files that would otherwise be compromised in an attack. Your device may be infected, but with your files backed up in the cloud, you can restore them quickly and easily. This backup ability empowers business owners over hackers. When hackers demand ransom to unlock your devices, their threats are significantly weakened if your FFS solution enables you to restore your files.

At first glance, FFS products may appear to be identical, but the features they offer vary. Most importantly, certain systems offer more protection than others. Which FFS solution is optimal for your needs?

How do you decide which FFS solution is right for your business?

  • Is it safe to choose your FFS product based on cost, or are there specific “must have” features for your business?
  • Is a popular, well-known, and widely used product really the best, or does it just have the most name recognition?
  • Is it worth spending more for a product that offers end-to-end encryption to avoid higher costs in the event of an attack?

These can be tough questions to answer without the time to devote to complex IT matters. Assessing which FFS product is right for your business takes research, expertise, and time. At Capstone Works, we are experts who stay current on the best practices for cybersecurity and the tools available in today’s market. Save staff time by partnering with Capstone Works to determine how to back up your data and increase productivity with the FFS solution that best suits your business.

The right FFS product can make a critical difference for you when hackers strike. Differentiate yourself from your competitors who are not investing in the right cybersecurity solutions. Avoid the pitfalls of cyberattacks by consulting with Capstone Works to determine the best strategies and products to meet your security needs.
