The server is…

At the heart of your entire business. Don’t let it fail.

Group Policy

Group policy is where all the magic happens.  You can set restrictions on what your users have access to and what times they can access their computer.  You can put users into groups, for example, an accounting group that only they can see the files left there for accounts to see.  This is the ultimate technological break through for any strong business to have.

User Security

Your users can get into trouble when reading and opening emails.  As said previously, group policy can protect against this.  Using group policy you can have your users permissions to the computer stop them from preforming special tasks that could harm or destroy the computer.  This is one of the most effective ways to prevent hackers.

Log your Network and Users

God forbid if someone hacked or stole your records.  Using a server database, you can log events happening on computers and the network as a whole.  This is critical if you ever need to go into court or find out what happened at a certain time of day.

Data Confidentality

Data confidentially is done through a number of means.  Windows Server has a suite of tools to protect file and information for only managers and executives to see.  Folders will be inaccessible to anyone who isn’t privileged to see them.

Secure VPNs

VPNs prevent man-in-the-middle attacks.  Basically if you don’t encrypt your network traffic then you are open to someone tapping into that traffic and reading things like Usernames, Passwords, or even tapping into your cameras and phone systems.  It’s crucial to use VPNs to encrypt and protect your traffic along with the use of technologies like TLS.

Ensure Data Availability

If one or two hard drives die, you can still keep your business running.  This is made possible by installing what’s known as a RAID.  RAID technology will keep your systems running in the case of a hard drive failure.  This is very important for businesses that rely heavily on their businesses technology.
