Saving a little on your technology can go a long ways, but cutting too many corners can lead to additional problems and expensive downtime. Here are a few ways you can save money on IT without creating long term issues.
Half of your employees love the file server, since it is fast, easy, and centralizes all work files in a single location on the network at the main office in Singapore. The other half of your of employees likely hate the file server, since they must login with their VPN to sync up with the server when they are remote and more often than not, they often are missing critical files when they are in the field. The problem is especially acute for employees who are always remote. Over time, difficulties with remote access cause employees to get out of sync with the rest of the company, leading to data sprawl for corporate documents and to critical content becoming trapped in personal silos. There is a different way for best cloud storage and file sync.
As technologies advances and we become ever more connected, files and data sharing in Singaporean businesses is more and more common even if they are large in size, especially with international collaborations. (Refer to our past articles on how to share large files Part 1 and Part 2). Without a doubt it has make collaboration between parties easier, but at the same time it raises security issues within a business when files are being shared out external so easily.

Virtually every employee today has a smart phone. Many also have tablets, such as iPads and Android devices. Most businesses are underutilizing these devices, because they belong to the employee in most cases. They are BYOD, “bring your own device,” as they say. This is a mistake. Your hyper connected employees will be glued to their mobile devices, whether you want them to or not. Savvy business owners and executives have realized the secret to higher employee productivity is embracing mobility and the BYOD trend. Find ways to help your staff work more, work smarter, and serve your clients better. The key is to empower the mobile experience of your staff, without compromising security and control of your corporate data. Business-class file sync services can give you the best of both worlds: you can allow your corporate data to be synced to employee mobile devices, without giving up control of your corporate data. Here’s how:
If you have a server and you’re not backing it up, you are tempting fate. It’s only a matter of time before something tragic will happen: a hardware failure, a hacker, or a corrupted Windows update. Something will bring that server down and do everything it can to take your data with it. Here are some type of backup you can consider for protecting your servers before any disaster happen.
While consumers have embraced cloud-based file-sync systems, IT managers have been less enthused about bringing these services into the workplace because they lack many advanced features critical to the enterprise.
Consumer-grade file sync solutions (referred to as CGFS solutions) pose many challenges to Singapore businesses that care about control and visibility over company vital information and data storage. Here are seven of the biggest risks that these solutions pose in a business environment.
Is your company safe from Rogue Access? Organizations of all sizes have a problem that most of them are not addressing adequately: their employees store corporate data on various file-sharing and content access platforms and most of these people still have access to this data after they are no longer employees.
Worse, much of this data in what Osterman Research is calling “rogue applications” is sensitive or confidential and many former employees continue to access it and – in some cases – share it with others.
