Digital Hygiene is as Important as “Regular” Hygiene
IT support providers in Dallas can help you keep your network as operational as possible through digital cleanliness best practices. This will include “hygiene” for both software and hardware applications.
Steps Toward Proper Hygiene of IT Systems
There are best practices as regards “cleaning” the IT infrastructure of your business, just as there are steps to properly clean your home, car, or anything else. Fix what you can in terms of software and hardware, get help for the more complex stuff. Consider the following moves:
Examine Physical Equipment, Eliminate Old Tech as Possible
There are businesses that have tech which was last relevant in the nineties, and said “legacy” tech is still in regular, daily use. Here’s the thing: a basic smartphone does more than the most advanced tech of yesteryear. Remember those old Technicolor iMac devices? They would only hold a handful of gigabytes. Your phone can have as much as a terabyte on it these days.
Go through the surface area of IT equipment defining your business, find “legacy” tech that would do better to be replaced, and replace it. If you can do this, it’s a wise move for tech hygiene; legacy tech just bogs a network down.
Look Into Present Security and Existing Privacy Settings
IT support experts in Dallas advise that you should examine operational security of devices and software on those devices. Do you have proper privacy settings? Does existing security keep malware out? Do you have “sandboxing” options that can “detonate” questionable attachments in a safe environment prior introduction to your network?
Managed service providers, or MSPs, will help you determine whether security is proper. Think of it as the difference between eating a meal without washing your hands, and washing your hands in advance. You won’t get sick most of the time if you don’t wash your hands, but eventually you will. Privacy and security won’t always compromise your network, but you just need that one viral germ, and your network gets sick.
