No matter how large or small your business, it depends on the reliable flow of data. From the emails your customers send to the data resources your employees rely on, you need to know that information can flow into and around your business smoothly, quickly and securely. Choosing the right switching and wireless solutions for the job from the often-bewildering range on offer will help to lower your operating costs and drive profits higher.On or off the Cloud
Working with the right suppliers means that you can tailor your network to meet your needs today yet make sure it is flexible enough to grow with your business in the future. Wireless solutions can be combined with hard wired elements to create a unique configuration designed to deliver the access you need, when and where you need it.
Servers, end point devices and people are only as effective as the networks that connect them. Configuring data and communications networks optimally can deliver a competitive advantage if data is allowed to flow optimally, resiliently and securely around the organisation, which is why connectivity provision is every bit as important as the components it connects.Ethernet Reliability
The enormous range of Ethernet connectivity possibilities can be confusing for even the most experienced ICT professional. What’s needed is reliable, glitch-free data connectivity so your employees can communicate with colleagues, share resources and collaborate across the organisation as needed. Scoping requirements, understanding current and future needs and making the right network choices is often best done with the help of a partner with specialist knowledge of the market. It’s also the best way to minimise expenditure whilst establishing a solid foundation on which to build and evolve your business networks.
For speed, flexibility, security and scalability, you need to control your WiFi connectivity solution via the cloud. Instead of directly managing your wireless solution yourself, your network operator can be responsible for increasing capacity to meet demand, take extending coverage and increasing connection speeds.A Simplified Approach to Wireless Management
A simplified wireless management solution can drive efficiency. It’s also great for reliability, and results in less down time and fewer support calls – so your business works smarter, not harder. With management control in the hands of your own network operator, you’re free to work on the day to day operations of your business. With none of the technical overheads of operating, supporting or managing a WiFi network, it’s an efficient and cost-effective benefit.

The latest cyber crime report is never far from the headlines, whether it's a data breach, phishing attempt, or an email extortion campaign. However, one area that is often overlooked is phone fraud, where a hacker uses your phone system to either provide free calls to expensive foreign destinations or to gain some form of value from calling premium-rate numbers. If this happens you may be left with a significant bill.
At Chess, we offer a fraud monitor service where we check customer call profiles and lock them down if we notice unusual activity and I've noticed a definite uptick in fraud since the COVID-19 lockdown began. Here are a few security points that may be worth thinking about

Most people will by now have navigated the first month of lockdown and be working successfully from home. Your business may have moved to the cloud before COVID-19, or moved more recently. Many will still be working remotely on servers and devices with the data stored locally.
Wherever you are working and however you store your data, here are 5 key reasons to be taking BackUps and Recovery seriously.
