Frequently Asked Questions
What is IT Support?
IT Support is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as technical help or knowledge provided by computing experts; a team or department in a company or organization that provides technical help to people who have problems with its computer systems.
At Lehigh Valley Technology Company, IT support is designed to provide you with the peace-of-mind knowing your data is secure, your technology is running as it should, and expert technicians are available in the event of emergency. Learn more about our IT support services.
What is a Managed IT Service?
A Managed IT Service can be explained as a preventative solution that adds reliability to your network and devices, thus keeping your data secure and systems running safely and properly. A customized plan is formulated based on your current and future business goals.
By outsourcing your IT to a managed services provider, your ability to embrace fresh solutions and systems will be turbocharged. And, of course, the improved affordability that this offers goes without saying. Learn more about our services.
How much should my company spend on IT?
A better question is would you rather spend money to prevent a cyberattack or spend money to react to a cyberattack? Many businesses won’t spend the money to keep a cyberattack from occurring, and as a result, get stuck paying even more to fix it. Let’s develop a plan that best suits your company’s needs.
What is a cloud-based service?
Companies use cloud-based services regularly throughout their day, whether it is to save and send files to one another or to write up a document or spreadsheet. Cloud services allow users to access all features and files of the system without having to keep the bulk of that system on their own computers. Some companies are seeing substantial gains from their continued cloud engagement. They’re benefitting even amidst global disruptions because they recognize the cloud as a launchpad for innovating and new ways of operating. Read more information about cloud services.
What devices and systems are targets for hackers?
Any operating system could potentially be a target for a hacker. Without the right protective technologies and systems in place, businesses are more vulnerable than ever. Cybercrime is rising every day in addition to ransomware and general hacking. Businesses need to think about how cybercrime is impacting them outside of the workplace as well as to their employees.
Can you tell if your email has been hacked?
You can’t sign in to your email because your password has been changed. This is one of the most obvious signs that your email has been hacked. The fact that your email password has been rejected as incorrect and you haven’t changed it may indicate that it has been changed by someone else.
