There was a time when networks were reserved for large companies with huge IT budgets and support departments to match. Not any more. Installing a home or small business network is not as expensive as you may think, and offers several distinct advantages:
• Easy file sharing between computers
• Cable/DSL internet connection sharing
• Printer sharing
If you network your machines you must have anti-virus software and a personal firewall installed. If you don't already have this protection, we are happy to supply and install it for you. See Security and Firewalls for details.
If you would like further information on networking, please contact us (ITM contact form link), or call 408.246.3707 to arrange for a FREE consultation with In the Moment Computing.
SECURITY & FIREWALLS
Whether you are networked or not, if you access the internet, you need to pay attention to the security of your computer system. Although your cable or DSL provider may recommend that you disable all file and printer sharing to reduce your risk of intrusion, In the Moment Computing can set up internet connection sharing that is safe, secure, and hassle-free while still offering all the advantages of file and printer sharing.
Firewalls can automatically block dangerous Internet threats - known and unknown - guarding your PC from hackers and data thieves. We can install a firewall that will give you the basic protection you need to secure your PC and keep your valuable information private.
VIRUS PROTECTION & REMOVAL
Another important element of your security system is up-to-date antivirus software than can scan your system regularly to remove viruses before they impact your machine. We can test your anti-virus software, making sure it’s current and has been run recently.
If you are having problems with your system and you fear you have a virus – do not install an anti-virus product. Call us immediately and we’ll take steps to remedy the situation before your data is lost. One way to minimize data loss is to set up a back up system (link to that section)
While we are onsite, we can do a thorough analysis of your current system to let you know which software programs need updating based on our knowledge and experience gained over 10 years in the computer field. We also carry a set of FREE utilities from which you can choose programs to enhance your computing experience.
The increased use of laptops, home offices, and multi computer homes has fueled the growth of wireless networking. Imagine being able to use your laptop to access data on your computer in the other room! In The Moment Computing offers complete wireless networking packages for home, SOHO, and small businesses, which includes products, installation and ongoing support.
