Managed IT Services | IT Company | Edmonton
Managed IT Services is a proactive approach to network management.

BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY.
Disaster Recovery Plans aka DRPs | IT Company | Edmonton
Not all backup plans are created equally! There are “backups” and there are BACKUPS. Our definition of a backup is an applied system that continuously and safely stores copies of data for either individual file recovery or full server restoration in the event of a disaster, regardless of the cause.
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is a full backup and recovery system that allows us to recover a full server within less than an hour in many cases. Our unique approach to DRPs employs best-in-class backup software and actual disaster-proof storage systems complemented by a secure encrypted cloud backup.
Business continuity should not be taken lightly. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What will happen if our servers crash?
- What is our disaster recovery plan?
- Are we covered against ransomware?
- How quickly can we get back online after a disaster?
- How much will each hour of downtime cost?
Those are just to list a few. The actual list is much longer and is designed not to generate fear of the unknown. It is designed to prepare you for the unknown. Our job is to think about almost every possible scenario and plan a resolution plan so you don’t have to worry about the safety and integrity of your data. K2 and You all the way to future growth!

Top 5 Mobile Device Attacks You Need to Watch Out For
Smartphones and tablets are often the preferred device for communications, web searching, and accessing many types of apps. They’re more portable and can be used from anywhere. We’re seeing the takeover of many activities that used to be performed on traditional computers. Now, people are using mobile devices instead. For example, Microsoft estimates that up to 80% of the workload in many enterprise organizations is now done via mobile devices. Over half of all web searches are also now conducted from a mobile device rather than a desktop PC. This has caused mobile devices to become more targeted over the past few years. As hackers realize they’re holding many of the same sensitive information and app access as PCs, they’ve been creating mobile malware and other exploits to breach [...]
