How Safe Are Your Backups?

It may seem silly to wonder how safe your backups are; backups are rarely thought of as being at risk. It stems back to a time when backups were on tape—a medium that would be tough for even skilled developers to hack. But today’s backups are stored (whether on-premises or in the cloud) on disk or, more specifically, as files in a file system. Depending on how accessible that file system is, your backups may be vulnerable.

In fact, they could be at risk for ransomware. If cybercriminals can encrypt your backup files, you’d pretty much have to pay the ransom, no matter how high

Does your phone system have 250,000 miles on it?

What is the worst that can happen if you keep you premise based phone and IT system?

My company has been in the telecom business since in 1974. Premise based systems were the only show in town. You had all the equipment on-site and you had to set side real ester to for
these systems, and supply local power and surge protection
According to Frost and Sullivan 90% of all new telecom systems will be Cloud Based in 2020.

You can keep your current system however;
• Your vendor can enter bankruptcy or be purchased by a competitor that may or may not support future software upgrades.
• You can continue investing in parts and service contracts for system that will one day be obsolete.
• The next time you have a power surge, or a power failure and a component fail, you will be spending money essentially on a car with 250,000 miles on it.
• Avaya is bankrupt, Toshiba is gone, Shortel was purchased. Asatru was purchased, and phone systems were discontinued. Is NEC next?
• What system do you have? What is the future of your system?

With a Cloud based systems phones calls are free, you can have an upgrade every three years. There is no equipment onsite to deal with. Your cell phone can become an extension of your desk phone. Your tablet has access to all your files.

Voice Mail tips

Not sure why but some VM users don’t record ;
1 a personal greeting
2 Providing a bypass digit
When I call a co. and ask for Pete and I get ext number 123… I am not sure if I have the correct V.M.. Also instead of a caller having to listen to you entire message, most systems have a bypass digit, mine is 1. that brings them to the record message spot ……… much more friendly to the caller. Try it

What is unified communications UC

Unified communications, UC, “bridging the gap,” communications and collaboration, integrated communications … it’s being talked about everywhere – magazine articles, news snippets, tradeshows, software manufacturers and hardware manufacturers, among others. If you are in the phone, e-mail, chat, mobile or any other communications-related business, you’re being barraged by the term “unified communications.”
There is a wide disparity in perceptions in the marketplace as to what unified communications (UC) really is. The big picture is that UC is bringing in voice, video, workflow applications, social networking, etc. – all different forms of communications – to mediate one solution or interface. This is not an easy task, as it takes a lot of time, and companies need to chip away at each of these, working to get each one under their wings.
Unified communications will change the way you communicate, making you and your employees more productive and efficient in your day-to-day business activities. Easily start a video conference call with a co-worker and have a question asked and answered in seconds rather than minutes by not having to walk over to their desk or another floor, exchange the usual hellos and short talk and then get to the task at hand. By using these robust communications all of that fluff is no longer needed and it creates more efficiency in how people work. Get it done quickly and see the savings in quality of communications – things that would’ve been more difficult to explain over the phone are much easier to share face-to-face with video conferencing, sharing boards, etc. UC offers efficient use of employee time and less distractions outside of the traditional business requirements. It’s amazing how people don’t realize how inefficient they can be when they are relying on just voice alone.
