What Should You Do If YOUR Network Is Compromised?

Back in June, 6.3 million passwords were reported stolen when a hacker was able to access LinkedIn’s servers. The news made headlines instantly and everyone in the office (and online) was talking about it. Clearly this is a public-relations nightmare for the company and one that will, for sure, have a ripple effect for months, possibly years, as they deal with the fallout from their clients and potential lawsuits.

Alert: The Internet Has Run Out Of IP Addresses!

Are You STILL Using Outdated Tape or Disk Backups?

If your computer network and the data it holds got erased or corrupted because of a virus, hard drive crash, fire, flood or some other random, unforeseen disaster, how confident are you RIGHT NOW that your business could be back up and running again FAST?

If your answer to that is, “I don’t know,” or “I’m not sure,” you are taking a HUGE risk with your company’s most important asset—the data on your network.
