As more and more core business functions (such as database management, accounting, and recordkeeping) move online, it’s also become apparent that a company’s connectivity needs to be as secure as it is efficient. Whether you’re setting up your office’s connections for the first time or are upgrading your existing connectivity solution to something more robust, here’s why wireless technology should be your first choice.
In the past, wireless connections (or WLANs) were reserved for specific access points, with a limited range and high cost making it accessible to very few. As time has passed, more compatible devices have been created leading to increased demand in coverage across the country. Service providers have improved their network to meet this need, making wireless technology an affordable investment for most businesses.
It’s Easy To Access
Wireless technology devices for businesses have become smarter, shrinking in size while doubling in capacity. This means that you will be able to access it in your business without having to install cables or make other major changes to your infrastructure. It also means that you can scale up or down easily according to demand.
It Keeps You Safe
It’s unfortunate that with any new technology comes threats posed by those wishing to exploit it for personal benefit. With most banking and data collection and storage taking place online, your business will be at risk. You need to ensure that the wireless technology that controls your access implements firewalls and makes use of monitoring software.
Why You Can’t ‘Set And Forget’
A common mistake that businesses make with wireless technology is investing in hardware, software and security solutions without having ongoing maintenance and assistance on hand. The problem with this is that it doesn’t grow with your business and leaves you vulnerable to security breaches. You also won’t be getting the most out of your systems and won’t have help on hand should you encounter technical problems that could cause your business to grind to a halt.
If you’re ready to improve or install new wireless technology systems in your business, there’s never been a better time to start than right now. For free consultation on how you can benefit from wireless, contact the Odessi Group on 1300 ODESSI (633774) and get started.
