3 Technology Resolutions for 2018

Nov 24th, 2017

As you know, a lot can change in a year, and it’s no different with technology. But is your tech ready to power you through another year? Are you falling behind your competition thanks to out-of-date technology? Do you feel prepared to take on the uncertainty 2018 could bring? It’s a lot to think about, but before you start stressing, here are a few tips on how you can ring in the New Year with confidence:

Reach Out for New Opportunities

Cloud computing is more than just a trendy buzzword, it’s the new normal for creating new opportunities such as:

  • Enhancing efficiency with seamless collaboration between employees, customers, and third parties.
  • Boosting flexibility and enabling employees to access data off-site and work from virtually anywhere.
  • Increasing data security and the ability to keep data backed up and fully recoverable in the event of a disaster.

If the cloud is nothing new to you, you should still take a look at how you’re already using cloud technologies. How’s your bandwidth? Could you use more server space? Are your subscriptions about to run out? There are always new opportunities to be found in cloud computing. You just need to know where to look.

Make a Toast to the Future

With the turn of the year, it’s common for people to take a look back at the past 365 days. Do you recall your computer crashing on you? Did you face unexpected server downtime? What about struggling with a dodgy network?

It’s difficult to feel confident about the future when the past year wasn’t so bright. You need reliable, secure, and scalable infrastructure to keep up with current trends and meet your growth goals. So, take the time to fully evaluate your infrastructure and look for room to improve efficiency for 2018 and beyond.

Ensure a Safe and Happy New Year

The year 2017 was a big year for natural disasters, from the hurricanes that barreled through the Southeast to the fires along the West Coast. And, we can’t forget about the cyberattacks that had everyone worried – WannaCry, Petya, and WikiLeaks, just to name a few. One thing 2017 has definitely taught us is that you have to be prepared for anything. Conducting a vulnerability assessment covers every inch of your environment to identify where you’re at risk, including:

  • Policies and procedures
  • Application and databases
  • Networks
  • Email
  • File storage
  • Compliance requirements

An effective vulnerability assessment examines your entire infrastructure to find the fragile points, prioritizes liabilities based on impact, and recommends steps to close gaps.
