“Just like that, our internet connection
has become an umbilical to the outside
world. We now depend on it to do our
jobs, to go to school, and to see other
people. It is our primary source of
entertainment. And we’re using it a lot.”
Will Douglas Heaven, MIT Technology Review
A stable internet connection is vital in today’s working environment. Remote access, VoIP communications, cloud computing, and so many other operations rely on a dependable internet connection. Right Click Solutions recognizes that with several internet service providers it can be difficult to manage and predict the reliability of the service. Understanding how our internet connections work is the first step to effective usage. Do you know the components of an internet connection? Are you aware of what service you are paying for, what you are entitled to, and whether you can upgrade?
With so many internet-based software companies offering products and services that allow us to be more productive and connected from virtually anywhere, the significance of the internet is becoming unparalleled. We are finding many of our clients subscribing to these products and updating their infrastructure to support more internet connectivity as well as taking security measures to minimize cyber risk.
One of the hottest internet-based services in today’s workforce is VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Due to an increased volume of businesses and organizations working remotely, Right Click Solutions has seen an uptick in the need for internet-based VoIP phone systems that can be used in countless locations. VoIP integrates all communication devices – desktop phones, mobile phones, and computers – into one flexible, economical, collaboration-centric, mobile-ready solution.
Upgrading to wireless access points to enhance internet accessibility within an office or building is also becoming a popular request for many businesses. WiFi (Wireless) is a facility allowing computers, smartphones, or other devices to connect to the internet or communicate with one another wirelessly within a particular area. WiFi is an extension of an organization’s internet service which provides the convenience of accessing the internet without having to be wired to an ethernet connection which accommodates mobility and distance within a given space.
The increased use of the internet sparked by the pandemic has, in turn, escalated the number of cyber-attacks, with hackers and malicious actors taking advantage of heightened digital engagement. Right Click Solutions offers a comprehensive suite of security software and services to protect against the latest cyber threats. We recommend layers of security solutions for your operation including using a Virtual Private Network, Multifactor Authentication, Email Security, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery, Virus Protection, Dark Web Monitoring, and Cyber Threat Education.
