4 Reasons Remote Monitoring Is Essential For Your Biz

Remote Monitoring

If your company is like most businesses, your computer systems play an important role in your daily operations. You want to make sure your systems are secure and operating at peak efficiency, right? One of the best strategies for fast and reliable services is to use a remote monitoring service to watch over your network and gather information. This method not only provides data about your systems, but also offers you peace of mind. Ah! Peace of mind about your office technology – sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Almost any tech device can be monitored remotely, including servers, routers, firewalls, and laptop and desktop computers. In addition, security updates and other changes can be implemented without you or your employees needing to take any action. Almost like magic!! (Well, not quite, but if you have been manually updating all your office security patches, it will certainly feel magical.)

Here are four reasons why you should use a remote monitoring service to keep an eye on your computer systems:

  1. Your Business Can Avoid Downtime

When your computer systems go down, you lose precious time and money. The ideal is having as little unplanned downtime as possible. With remote monitoring, NoWorriesIT can set alerts that trigger when a problem starts to develop. This early notification system means issues can be resolved before they develop into a crisis that causes downtime. For instance, NoWorriesIT can be notified if your server is offline; if a hard drive is showing signs of failure; or if a backup is failing, to name a few.

  1. Problems Can Be Addressed Immediately & From Any Location

With remote monitoring, your computer systems are watched around the clock – 24×7. Thanks to remote monitoring, it does not matter where you, your computer systems, or your employees are. When an issue arises, you will be contacted by NoWorriesIT to find out how you want it handled, and those instructions will be carried out. This means that you do not even need to leave the comfort of your own home to take care of a problem. This aspect of remote monitoring is especially appealing to businesses with facilities in distant or rural locations.

  1. Security Measures Are Monitored

Folks often think that cybercriminals only target large corporations, but that is really not true. In fact, often small and midsize businesses are especially targeted because they are unprepared for attacks. A remote monitoring service can keep an eye on the security measures you have in place so that you know they are working properly. Plus, if you are attacked, you will know immediately rather than finding out days or weeks later. Early detection often limits the damage and reduces the level of effort needed to restore the affected systems. This is a huge value to using remote monitoring, particularly in these times of very active cyber attacks.

  1. Your Computer Network’s Health Is Tracked

Remote monitoring collects data about your computer network and systems over time. When viewing this data in monthly or quarterly reports, long-term trends can be identified before they reach levels that would trigger an alert. Another way you, as business owner, can plan ahead and stress less!
