Consider Encrypted Cloud-Based Storage For Extra Security

As a small business owner, you already know that one of your most important assets is your data. In fact, the thought of suddenly losing it all due to a massive power surge (or a clumsy employee who accidentally reformats your hard drive) is terrifying! Unfortunately, storing your data files exclusively on a local computer is about as safe as stuffing your life savings under your mattress at home. How do you keep your data safe?

The answer is cloud-based storage! By connecting your office to the cloud, you’ll be able to instantly access your files from anywhere in the world. And if you’re worried about data security, you can rest assured that your files will be quite safe from prying eyes! Our team at Network Services Group will be glad to schedule a service consultation to show you the numerous benefits of using cloud services for secure online document handling. In the meantime, here are the answers to a few questions that you might have:

What is the cloud?

Not unlike the internet itself, “The Cloud” is not a physical thing, but a network of powerful computer servers that serve different functions. Some power social media sites, some support subscription-based software services, and some are designated strictly for file storage. One big advantage of using the cloud is that you don’t have to transfer all your files over every time that you get a new computer.

How will my office connect to the cloud?

We’ll set up a server and exchange system for your office with Network Attached Storage (NAS). The system will automatically update your software and antivirus definitions during off-peak hours. The system will also backup your files locally on an hourly basis, and offsite every night.

Are you sure my data is safe?

For starters, all of your files will be protected with military-grade encryption. And, in the event of a data loss, all you have to do is select a designated restore point, and you’ll be back in business in minutes. Additionally, our offsite backups are also backed up to redundant servers in other parts of the country!

Cloud-based data storage has revolutionized the high-tech industry, and if you haven’t made the switch, you risk getting left behind! Schedule your free, no obligation, consultation here, or give us a call at (501) 758-6058.

If Your Phone System isn’t VOIP – We Have 3 Reasons Why it Should Be

More and more people are now becoming “cord cutters,” and abandoning landline telephone service at home. Over 90% of people now have mobile devices, and it’s hard to justify the expense of a home telephone. But as a business owner, it’s still important to have a main phone number that won’t change, even if your personnel does.

Network Services Group has been central Arkansas’s leader in business telephone services since 1989, and our reputation for offering cost-effective managed IT services is second to none. We also offer our clients top quality VOIP phone systems at competitive prices. Here are a few of the reasons why transitioning to internet phone service makes sense:

Advanced Features

With VOIP Service, you’ll have all the features of a standard telephone, plus a whole lot more! Your phones will be integrated into your server and exchange system, which means that your voicemail messages can be copied to your email. And for employees who don’t spend much time sitting at their desks, you can also easily transfer a phone call to a mobile device!

Lower Cost

The days of telephone service monopolies are long gone, and that’s good news for your bottom line! We work with over 35 telecommunications providers, and they all know that if they’re not prepared to offer our clients a bargain price, their competitors will! When you switch to VOIP service, you can expect to save up to 70% on your telephone bill!


As your company grows and the size of your workforce expands, adding telephone lines is quick and easy! And VOIP service is also a great option for companies that employ seasonal help, because it’s just as easy to remove them when they’re no longer needed.

There’s never been a better time to upgrade to VOIP telephone service, and we’re ready to show you how easy and affordable that it can be! And we don’t just set up your system and say good-bye; we’ll make sure that your staff is trained on all of the features of your new telephone system, and back you up with 24/7 live and helpdesk support. Schedule your service consultation now, or give us a call at (501) 758-6058 if you have any questions!
