A strong and robust WiFi connection is now expected but a router tucked away in a corner or cupboard simply can’t deliver. WiFi extenders and powerline adaptors can help but often need rebooting, reconnecting and end up being the source of endless frustration. The solution is a managed WiFi setup.
If you’re considering whether to offer public WiFi then there are some serious considerations that you’ll need to take into account. For example, it’s necessary to ensure that you are acting responsibly legally compliant.
No business should be putting their WiFi users at risk whether they are internal staff members or customers.
It’s also important not to put your own business at risk by giving out unsecured access to guests. Make sure you offer a separate, isolated guest WiFi connection from your business WiFi which should always have a secure and private login.
We can install various professional Access Points around your buildings that appear as one large WiFi network to cover all areas. We securely isolate the business network from any guest network.

Why you should consider leasing your IT equipment:
Secure, expandable, collaborated and synchronised working for a single user or a large team.
If you use more than one computer, or have a smartphone as well as a PC, you’ve probably endured the hassle of trying to share your files across them. Cloud computing could be the solution.
Examples of Cloud computing are secure file sharing, emails, backups and disaster recovery. Depending on the number of users cloud computing could be the most cost-effective way to provide business-class IT services for your business.
The term Cloud computing is often used generically for software as a service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
Efficient, productive, convenient and cost-effective remote working.
Recently working from home or indeed working from anywhere has proved to be both productive and cost-effective. Many businesses have started to use video conferencing and team working from home for the first time.
Employers and employees alike are now facing the challenge of juggling work, childcare and home-schooling. Setting up home working provides a flexible working environment to meet these needs. We can set up both IT and business phones to function in the just same way as being in the office.
Sensitive data should be managed and disposed of securely and in full compliance with government regulations. Businesses now collect and store massive quantities of data. This information sits on local Computer hard drives and servers, mobile devices, and often, in the cloud.
Storage trends are continually evolving, there has never been a more important time to have a secure and reliable way to not only locate what data you hold but to also destroy it when needed. This is not just a matter of business security but also regulatory reform with GDPR – data subjects now have a right to have their data deleted from a company’s systems upon formal request.
This is particularly important today as the falling cost of mass storage has led many businesses to simply keep vast quantities of their information instead of operating a disposal strategy. Data is permanently destroyed using mechanical shredding or degaussing. Destruction certificates and reports are issued to the client as required.
