Like most businesses, you went into the business you love, and while you love doing your business, you may not love the IT duties that go with it.
In that, you aren’t alone. IT management in the digital age is a must for any business, but that doesn’t mean it’s why you went into business, and it doesn’t mean you want to put the resources together to manage your IT network, to keep it running, and to keep it safe from unwanted intrusions. But you don’t need a one-size-fits-none solution that crams you into a cookie-cutter program that works okay here and not so okay there. And you certainly don’t need an IT troubleshooter who sends you a bill every time you call.
You need Network Data Solutions. NDS is one of the largest IT providers in Arkansas, offering customized managed IT solutions tailored to fit your business, and the way you do business. For a flat monthly rate that fits into your budget, your IT problems become IT solutions, with NDS securing your network from hackers, viruses, malware, as well as internal sabotage and unauthorized access.
Plus, we offer data backups and disaster recovery that performs hourly backups of your system to an onsite server, and uploads a backup every 24 hours to our network of offsite servers, with military level encryption to ensure no gets access who isn’t supposed to.
Whether caused by man or nature, should the worst happen and your files get corrupted, damaged, or even destroyed, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing all of your data and system files are safe, stored on multiple offsite servers.
Since our beginnings over 30 years ago, we’ve seen computer networking grow from infancy to today’s modern computer age, growing with it to serve thousands of customers daily throughout the state.

In today’s interconnected world, information moves constantly in or out through your data network. If you don’t take the proper steps to protect your network, the effect can be like leaving the front door standing open and all of your files spread out across the front foyer, accessible to all. If you lack the resources or ability to maintain your own in-house IT department, Network Services Group offers data services for businesses that takes the headaches out of IT security.
NSG was formed when the Internet was in diapers and the cloud was something that sent you running for your umbrella. As the Internet evolved, we evolved with it, building over time an efficient and cost effective alternative to maintaining your own, in-house IT staff. We offer maintenance monitoring (to keep your data safe from prying eyes) and disaster recovery (to keep your data safe and secure from the worst man or Mother Nature can toss your way) with flat monthly rates you can set your operating budget by.
Here are a few advantages we offer that help you sleep better at night:
- Protection of Company Data – Internal monitoring of data flow, bandwidth usage, and ensuring vulnerable access points are blocked prevents unauthorized data access, which can place your employees or clients at risk, and can do long-term damage to your company reputation. We offer backup and disaster recovery with military-level data encryption to preserve your network regardless of fire, flood, weather, or sabotage.
- Establish IT Usage Parameters – Through design and implementation of security protocols within your network, NSG can regulate website access, monitor the network to prevent sabotage from within or without, prevent installation of unauthorized software or applications, and make sure the data you depend on is safe from theft or unauthorized access.
- Custom Security Designed for Your Business – There is no one-size-fits-all network solution. Your data network, like your business, is unique. At NSG, we design an IT platform to fit your business, not the other way around.
Managed IT is an affordable way for your small business to maximize uptime and keep your data secure. For more information, click here, or give us a call at (501) 758-6058.

You’ve often heard the old advice about hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst, and one of the worst things that could happen to your office is heavy damage (or complete destruction) by fire, severe weather, or some other natural disaster. It’s not the sort of thing that we like to think about, but do you have a plan? Obviously, the physical safety of your employees is the most important consideration, and the safety of your company records comes in a very close second. A building can be rebuilt, but if you don’t have a plan to restore your files, you could find yourself having to start over again.
The good news is that Network Services Group is not just a network support and IT solutions provider. We also include automated cloud-based file backup and storage services for our clients. In the event of any loss of data onsite, your files can be restored in a matter of minutes. Here’s how it works:
Hourly onsite backups
We’ll begin by setting up an onsite Network Attached Storage (NAS) server for you onsite, and your files will be automatically backed up on an hourly basis. We’ll show you how to plan for recoverability, and how to test your file restoration process to be prepared in the event of an actual onsite data loss.
Daily offsite backups
The next step is to backup your files offsite on a daily basis to our data center. In fact, our offsite backups are stored redundantly on multiple servers for the ultimate in security. And if you’re worried about valuable company data being intercepted from the cloud, you can relax. All of our cloud-based and offsite file storage is protected with military-grade encryption.
Whether by mother nature or human nature, accidents happen. Very few offices experience large-scale emergencies in their lifetimes, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be prepared. And in the event of a minor emergency, such as an employee spilling a cup of coffee on a computer, or damaged equipment due to a power surge, you can be back in operation in minutes.
