Does your computer network really need monitoring?

This is probably one of the biggest and most costly misconceptions that business owners have.  Usually this is because they’ve been fortunate enough to never have encountered a major computer-related disaster, but that’s similar to someone thinking they don’t need to wear a seat belt when driving a car because they’ve never had an accident.

Computer networks and servers are complex and dynamic systems that need regular monitoring to make sure they stay running fast and problem free.  Without regular monitoring your network or server can quickly fail.  Think of your computer like a car:  if you don’t check the fluids and they become low without your knowledge your car will eventually breakdown and cost you FAR MORE to repair than the cost of monitoring the system.

Here are just a few areas that should be monitored on a regular basis:

  • Antivirus
  • Firewall
  • Backups
  • Spam Filter
  • Disk Space
  • Utilization
