Why Infrastructure Maintenance Is Importance
By LIANNE MONACO
One serious problem exists within companies where the Information Technology (IT) area is neglected. Executives believe once their infrastructure (network, servers, computers, applications, etc.) are in place and being used, that is sufficient and no additional IT work is needed. That is far from the truth.
Regular maintenance of your IT systems helps your systems to run more smoothly as well as reduce the risk of them breaking down. A well maintained IT environment should ensure your staff and business has no technology roadblocks that hamper productivity and will also lead to a reduction in support costs.
If the infrastructure is not properly maintained, which includes updated service packs, firmware, and other critical updates to the systems, the chances of your company receiving a cyber-attack or worse, becoming a victim of ransomware increases dramatically. It is important for IT teams to conduct infrastructure maintenance every other week, scheduled, and include testing daily backups and restore procedures. Too many companies have found themselves paying more money than they had ever thought because their backups failed to restore.
How much is your company's data worth? How long could your company afford to be without its computers/systems?
