Downtime? Not on our watch!

There are few things more frustrating than network downtime or connectivity issues, and most businesses stop dead in their tracks when they can’t access emails, the internet, or their file management system. The best case scenario for an outage is lost productivity, and the worst case scenario is lost revenue.

No one hates downtime more than Network Services Group, and the key to our success is keeping our clients online and connected. We can set up an email and scheduling system in your office that will keep a team of any size connected, and we guarantee 99.9% uptime for all of our clients. Here are some of the benefits of cloud-based server and exchange hosting from NSG:

Email on All Devices– These days, workforces are becoming increasingly mobile, and several of your employees may not spend much time sitting at a computer. An exchange system will seamlessly integrate with all devices, and will allow your employees to access email, contacts, calendars, and reminders on their computers, smart phones and tablets. 

Up To Date-You never have to worry about having the most current version of software. As upgrades become available, they are automatically downloaded and installed to all devices that access the network at no additional charge.

Scalable-Adding new team members is easy, and requires no additional network hardware upgrades. And if your company employs seasonal help, you won’t have to bear the cost of their accounts year-round. You only pay for the services that you use.

Secure backups-Your files will be backed up to a local server at your office on an hourly basis, and will be backed up to redundant offsite servers daily. Your data will be protected with military-level encryption, and can be easily restored at any time.

24/7 live and Help desk support-We offer help desk support for all of our services around the clock, and we also offer onsite assistance as needed.

Our Backup System Keeps Your Data Secure!

In the news we’re constantly bombarded with information related to the latest data breach and of hackers making off with hundreds of thousands or even millions of credit card numbers or other personal information. There are seemingly endless warnings related to computer viruses, malware, and other malicious software floating around in cyberspace just waiting to turn our world upside down.

In your computer network resides all of the information that tells your business how to function. If all of that is sitting in one place, you are vulnerable, possibly more than you ever imagined.

And not all threats are contained to cyberspace.

Consider this: It’s the middle of the night and you receive a call that your building has burned and is a total loss. Insurance will cover the building and contents but if your server is lost and there’s no backup you could be out of business. At best, the recovery will take much, much longer.

If not a fire, consider a tornado. Or a lightning strike. Sabotage from a disgruntled employee. Earthquake (the New Madrid Fault sits on our doorstep).  

Call Network Services Group before disaster strikes and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your data is safely backed up to an onsite server every hour and offloaded to offsite servers every 24 hours. Safe and sound and ready to restore your data should the need arise.

With the Disaster Recovery Service from NSG, you never have to fear threats from cyberspace or those closer to home, because we protect you like this:

  • Recover individual files and folders in minutes
  • Onsite and Offsite Backups
  • Detailed Recovery Plan
  • Military Level Encryption
  • Data and Operating System Backups
  • Backups can be restored as a Virtual Machine on the cloud

BEFORE a fire, flood, 44-ounce drink spill, laptop drop, tornado, lightning strike, cleaning service accident, disgruntled employee, hardware failure, accidental deletion, virus attack, or curious toddler takes out your data, call NSG at.501-758-6058 or contact us online and we’ll give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your data is safe.

Don’t Let Hackers and Viruses Catch You Unprepared!

If your business is like most, your computer network is your lifeline to the outside world, and you depend on the Internet to keep you in touch and moving forward. But ironically, the Internet, the very thing you depend on to keep you plugged in to the outside world, is filled with threats trying to shut you down. The bad guys cast wide net that takes strong security to keep you from getting hauled in.

A recent virus attack launched in early July, the SoBig.F virus, was believed to have been attached to one in 17 emails sent from all over the world in a 24 hour period, slowing Internet traffic to a crawl and snarling computer networks all over the world.

As of this writing, the virus is still rampaging through networks around the world, slowing computer networks to a crawl. Or shutting them down entirely.

Security breaches have become commonplace news, hitting big box retailers, banks, even the Pentagon and Social Security Administration. It’s a jungle out there on the Information Superhighway, but you don’t have to go it alone.

At Network Services Group, we’ve been managing computer networks since 1989, and we’ve navigated the Information Superhighway since it was a dial-up dirt road moving information in bytes, not gigabytes.

As the Internet has grown, computer networking has changed, and we’ve changed with it. We work hard to stay ahead of the curve because that’s where the next cyber-threat is waiting.

We’ll monitor your network for threats, back up your data every hour and offload it every 24 hours to offsite servers that utilize military-level encryption. If your network is breached, we’ll know it immediately, contain the threat, and have your data backed up and ready to get you back up and running.

Don’t wait for disaster to strike. Call NSG today at 501-758-6058 or contact us online and let us take the worry out of network security. At NSG, keeping you covered is our business, enabling you to concentrate on your business.
