Key indicators that you may need our services:

 Are you growing too large for the in-house “expert”?

Many small businesses have an in-house go-to person that helps with all things computer related. This works in the beginning. It’s cost-effective and easy. Usually, the in-house expert has a primary role in another capacity and helps out when someone needs desktop support. Soon, it grows to be too much for that individual both in time requirements and skills needed. As the business grows more complex, mistakes and costly downtime occurs more frequently and frustration sets in amongst the team and leaders. Customers feel the impact.

Is hiring or maintaining a full-time staff to cover your business cost-prohibitive?

In order to maintain an in-house department, the skills needed to support your business extends far beyond a desktop support person. Knowledge of server management, data recovery/ back-up solutions, 24×7 monitoring of network and server hardware and availability when something goes wrong typically means hiring multiple people with different skill sets and salary grades. This is a very costly endeavor for most small to medium sized businesses. Managing and leading that team after they are in place is another consideration.

Do you need someone you trust to help guide your business on network infrastructure planning?

As businesses grow, planning for capital expenses and investing in the right infrastructure becomes increasingly more important and more challenging to your business leaders. Your business needs a trusted advisor (a CIO) to provide input and guidance on the direction to support your technology needs.

Does the technology pose a threat to your ability to grow?    

Your organization has reached a size where a major, unexpected outage resulting in downtime could lead to devastating losses for your business. 70% of businesses who suffer a serious data loss are out of business within 2 years. New viruses, cyber-attacks and data disasters pose a serious threat to your brand and reputation.

Do you need extra help when it comes to IT projects and initiatives?

Your existing IT team needs added support during peak times but hiring another person isn’t financially viable.

If any of these business indicators sound familiar or describe the current state of your world, we would appreciate an opportunity to talk with you about how we can help.

Good Advice: “Avoid smothering it with a pillow.”

Windows is updating… And the next thing it says is to not turn off your computer. So here you are putting your life on hold while your computer appears to be doing nothing for quite some time. Maybe you really need to get to work and have deadlines to meet. There isn’t an easy out when the computer is updating the operating system and some of the Windows 10 updates are pretty hefty. It is true that we could install Windows 10 on a new hard drive more quickly than some of these cumulative updates take to install and we have had many calls about this in the last few months. The quickest way to see your friendly Eagle Technician at your desk is to shut it off or unplug it. It will usually damage the operating system and require a reinstall. Yes, we know how it happened. Here at Eagle headquarters, we refer to it as “smothering it with a pillow.” Letting the update run the course might take some time, but it almost always completes eventually. We have seen some updates take up to 2 hours depending on the age and speed of the computer, which is a good reason to refresh your hardware on a regular basis. Time is money, and slow computers cost more and more in the long run. Another scenario is that it’s the end of the day and you want to leave as soon as possible. You click Start and the only option is to “Update and shut down.” How frustrating! If you have a desktop you don’t plan on taking home,...

What happened to the Internet?

Last Friday October 22, the information superhighway hit a few potholes by way of a DDoS attack. Some of you might be thinking “DOS,” or “Disk Operating System,” but this is a Denial of Service attack. Officially, it is a DDoS attack – just put the word “distributed” in front of the acronym. Some of our clients were impacted by this, but mostly because they could not reliably access certain websites. This only appeared to affect the United States. This maneuver was pretty well thought out. For years there have been reports that malware and viruses can attach to a phone or any other internet-connected device, but if you don’t see a virus warning then how do you know that there is a problem? If you don’t have an antivirus application looking for viruses, then you probably would not know. Can you install antivirus on a network connected printer? Despite best efforts, some malicious programs evade mitigating mechanisms anyway because they are not displaying signatures that the antivirus or firewalls are programmed to look for. So what really happened last week? Gizmodo.com reported “today a massive DDoS attack took out a major piece of the internet infrastructure.” That paints the picture of crews of workers gathering smoking piles of internet and hauling it away in dump trucks while other crews install new pieces of internet. First, it helps to have an understanding of how the internet works. It’s basically a bunch of wires that connect devices together. I describe it as a highway and road system. You leave your house and drive onto your street. You see road signs...
