It isn’t too late.

OK, so it’s February. You’ve settled into 2017 and, in many ways, it still feels like 2016. Of all those things you said you’d do, you’ve done…one? Half of one? You haven’t exercised, haven’t found time to read, haven’t eaten any healthier, haven’t started that new hobby.

Protecting Your Image

Last month, our blog featured a post we titled What’s Not To Like About Remote Access? It provided a 30,000-foot overview of how to position yourself (and your employees) for remote access to your IT network.

Where are you most vulnerable?

Hold that line, baby hold that line.
Get up boys and hit ’em one more time.
We may be losing now but we can’t stop trying.

What’s not to like about remote access?

First it was casual Fridays. Remember those? Then came laptops and smartphones and before we all knew it, we could work anywhere. Literally anywhere.

While some companies cannot (or should not) allow an offsite workforce, most can. But before any employee is allowed to work away from your office, particularly if it includes access to your network, the company, employee and supervisor ...

With a staff of seventeen at this 1,200-active-member, suburban church, Frank Norwood, Executive Pastor of First Baptist Matthews, was in search of an IT provider. Upon recommendation from a group of other area executive pastors and church business directors, he contacted Carolinas Net Care in March of 2012, specifically for a Wi-Fi connectivity solution for their large campus that has been a part of the Matthews, N.C. community since 1877.
