MANAGED IT SERVICES.

Managed IT Services | IT Company | Edmonton

Managed IT Services is a proactive approach to network management. Think of this as a comprehensive insurance policy on your car! you don’t sign up for insurance after something happens to your car, you do so when you buy your car. Your car is valuable, your business is much more valuable so help protect your investment by investing in a Managed IT Services agreement. Each plan is carefully tailored to each of our client’s networks. The plan tailored for a law firm will most probably not be a suitable fit for a company in the manufacturing or oil & gas sectors. Our Managed IT Services always take into account where you are now and plan for where you want to be in the future. We don’t stop there, we actually help advise you during every step of your journey. K2 is not an IT company, we are a full-scale IT Solutions provider for your convenience. When enrolling for a Managed IT Services plan with K2, it will always be K2 and You!

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:

  1. What will happen if our servers crash?
  2. What is our disaster recovery plan?
  3. Are we covered against ransomware?
  4. How quickly can we get back online after a disaster?
  5. 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!

Pros & Cons of Using the Windows 365 Cloud PC

While many companies have moved most of their workflows to the cloud, there is still a key component of office operations that is location-based. This would be employee computers. Most companies still rely on desktops and laptops to allow employees to access critical software and as their main workstation. This can become inconvenient if you’re doing work from one location. For example, if you work both at the office and home, in one of those places, you’ll be without your “main computer.” This can be a real problem when it comes to needing to access certain files or possibly working from a slower device than you’re used to. Many technology companies, such as Microsoft, have an answer for this – put your computer workstation in the cloud. This is [...]

Are Two Monitors Really More Productive Than One?

When you see those people with two monitors, you may assume they do some specialized work that requires all that screen space, or they just really like technology. But having the additional display real estate that a second screen provides can benefit anyone, even if you’re doing accounting or document work all day. We get used to being boxed in by the screen size we have. This can lead to us struggling when trying to fit two windows next to each other or continuously clicking between layers of windows on the desktop. Most of us have experienced clicking around to find the window we actually need in a layer of different applications. This is one of the things that eats up time during the day and that using dual [...]

Microsoft Teams Plan Comparison: Free vs M365 Business vs Teams Essentials

The shift to remote work over the last two years has caused companies to realign their digital tools. Now, many meetings default to being via video conference rather than in person, and working from home has become commonplace. Seventy-seven percent of remote workers say they’re more productive working from home (a big reason is fewer distractions). Plus 85% of surveyed managers expect that having teams with remote workers will be the new normal. But for remote working to work without employees feeling disconnected and customers feeling you’re hard to reach, you need to use cloud communication tools. One of the most popular, which has skyrocketed in popularity, is Microsoft Teams. Between April 2020 and April 2021, the Microsoft Teams daily active users count rose from 75 million to 145 [...]

How to Protect Your Online Accounts from Being Breached

Stolen login credentials are a hot commodity on the Dark Web. There’s a price for every type of account from online banking to social media. For example, hacked social media accounts will go for between $30 to $80 each. The rise in reliance on cloud services has caused a big increase in breached cloud accounts. Compromised login credentials are now the #1 cause of data breaches globally, according to IBM Security’s latest Cost of a Data Breach Report. Having either a personal or business cloud account compromised can be very costly. It can lead to a ransomware infection, compliance breach, identity theft, and more. To make matters more challenging, users are still adopting bad password habits that make it all too easy for criminals. For example: 34% of people [...]
