IT Solutions suited to your business

 

Have you ever ordered seafood in a steakhouse? Or prime rib from a seafood restaurant? If you have, then you probably have experienced a poor dining experience and more than likely have left the restaurant wishing that you had ordered the fillet you fancied when you were at the steakhouse, or that calamari you coveted when in the seafood restaurant. As a general rule of thumb, if the restaurant you are frequenting is renowned for a specific type of cuisine, then stick to ordering their specialty and you are certainly more likely to get a more satisfying meal.

In the same way, if your core business isn't IT, why would you do your own IT? Sure, you may have an IT guy who has been supporting your business since inception of your business and who has been called out to your workplace from time to time to disaster manage your email emergencies, or sort out your server when the firewall goes down. Your IT guy is there when you need him but does he proactively attend to your IT issues before problems occur? Are you just moving from one firefighting situation to the next instead of moving forward in your business?

Information Technology is so fundamental to your business that when its not working at optimal performance, chances are, your staff aren't working either and that plays havoc with your profit margins. Any IT downtime doesn’t just cost you to get your IT guy in to investigate and repair the IT issue, but also valuable production time and possibly loss of customer income. The stakes are too high to risk anything less than the best IT support London.

In order to keep your business competitive in a highly aggressive business world, you may then consider creating an IT department and hiring full time technical teams to manage your fundamental information technology. However what you may not realise is how many skills are required to sustain a fully functional IT department. Chances are that you will need more than just one person to replace your IT guy as there are a variety of skills and different expertise required to sustain your company’s IT department. Consider why would you turn your “steakhouse” business into a “seafood” provider, ifyour expertise is preparing and cooking meat?

Its time to outsource your IT department to Knowall IT - a service provider who fully understands every aspect of IT support and who delivers exceptional customer service.

Where to go for the best IT Support

What should a company look for when they are looking for a new IT provider? It’s important to understand your business’s IT needs before embarking on the search for an IT support London provider. But as the saying goes “you don’t know, what you don’t know” so where do you start going about finding out what you don’t know, so that you can make the most informed decision? After all, if you were an IT genius you wouldn’t be looking for someone else to assist you with your IT support in the first place!

Your relationship with your IT provider is a very important one, and must be based on a foundation of trust. Any IT service provider worth their salt understands the importance of technology within your business, hopefully, even better than you do and should come with new and innovative solutions to help you to use your IT effectively and efficiently. If there is an easier way to make your business work through the use of technology and innovation, while also saving you money, then why not take advantage of the benefits that they can bring to you and your customers. If your IT service provider is not able to give you the services which you require because of a lack of expertise or due to a lack in hardware or software on their part, then they are not the provider you should be spending time and money on. The key to remember about technology is that it is always improving and innovating, which means that it is easy for a business to get left behind if they do not constantly keep updating their hardware and software. Any suitable IT support company must stay ahead of the pack in order to set themselves apart from the rest or risk becoming as obsolete as a floppy disc.

One of the most important things to look for in your IT Support service provider is whether they have a good reputation in the industry. Knowall IT Support Paddington are recipients of the “Innovation in Business” award at the West London Business Awards, proving that not only do their clients appreciate their reputation as innovators in the service and IT industry, but so too do their peers within the industry in and around the UK. Knowall IT understands that each business has its own specific IT requirements. Taking a stock standard approach to all of their client’s needs would not be cost effective or appropriate for the client. Take for example a payroll company who provides a cloud-based services, experiencing constant downtime and connectivity issues, data loss or virus outbreaks. While this would be detrimental in any business, it would be of even more importance that the Payroll client receives proactive IT support, excellent network and cabling options, and most of all impenetrable firewall and security. This is where Knowall IT Paddington is proactive in ensuring they provide everything that clients thinks they need as well as the things which they did not even know about, proving just why they are award-winning.

Securing your data is never easier

As technology becomes more sophisticated, so too do those determined to hack their way through to your personal information making the act of protecting such information and that of your clients, even more difficult and significantly more important.  Cyberattacks have made victims of Equifax, GitHub, BadRabbit and more resulting in a loss of BILLIONS in loss of productivity as well as financial repercussions thereof. And according to the cybersecurity experts, the rate and severity of these attacks will only continue to spiral out of control. Online Trust Alliance stated that 2017 was the harshest year yet for data breaches and cyber incidents, with the gigantic increase in ransomware leading to close on double the number (160 000) of cyberattacks in 2016 (82 000).

Small and medium, start up and entrepreneurial business owners must wonder how soon their own data and information will be accessed and destroyed or sold for profit. And you can’t be blamed for thinking that way. Even though the incidents of cyberattacks has been lavishly reported through the media, it is often surprising to find out that companies are not taking this threat as seriously as they should. Where in a matter of milliseconds, everything that your business operates on a daily basis on, can vanish before your eyes. And recovery will certainly cost you, if it is even at all possible to recover the information which you have lost.

Sage Cloud is an answer to those who are aware enough to be concerned about cyberattacks within their business. Only the latest, up to the minute technologies have the capacity to combat these attacks. Often times when businesses are looking for solutions, they consider the traditional approach of desktop-hosted software which is far easier to hack than encrypted cloud-based technology which is your most viable alternative.

Utilising Sage Cloud means that companies can avoid the previously high costs partnered with setting up of new technology on local hardware devices, eliminating the need for on-site servers and other technology which has previously been required. High enterprise server technology from UK-based locations ensure that your business and all of your employees are able to access the cloud which is high performance technology, from any device in any location, using a wide-ranging array of underlying resources, faster and more efficiently than ever before. No fail access ensures productivity and performance at all times. Discounting the savings which will be enjoyed as a result of eliminating hardware costs, there is the added benefit of avoiding large and on-going amounts of financial outlay for localised IT support as well as supplier expenses.

Securing your data is never easier as back-ups are performed regularly and servers are automatically maintained at no added expense to, or intervention by the user. And data is completely isolated and contained for each individual enterprise ensuring absolute security, provided by your hosts, Knowall IT.

Windows 10 remote apps fix instructions

Windows 10 is unlike any Windows version that has preceded it. However as innovative and dynamic as the Window platforms are, they are not without their issues. This is mostly as the result of the ever changing needs and functionality that Windows is providing.

Microsoft describes Windows 10 as a service and by this they mean that the service will be better once software updates have been performed. This is similar to the updates that your phone does. It updates the service capability every so often to bring its customers the latest version of the software thereby giving immediate access to the best that the product has to offer. To this end the lastest Windows Update we have been receiving calls regarding the below error. This is caused by a windows update corrupting the RDS fix we have been deploying to fix the various issues Windows has with RDS currently.

RDS Active X Error

  1. Download the EXE fix – http://knowall.net/CloudFix_x86_x64.exe
  2. Right click – *RUN as Administrator

CLICK HERE – IF YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE WITH REMOTEAPPS

[UPDATE]

“We have found out that it is a known issue and our internal team is working on it.

EVENT_SYSTEM_FOREGROUND comes too soon on the server. We end up sending the incorrect z-order to the client because in some scenarios the z-order calculation has not completed before we send it. A race condition exists in RemoteApp when a window is activated resulting in the activated window opening behind the previous foreground window. After the RemoteApp widow is activated, RdpShell.exe checks the server z-order before win32k.sys finishes computing the new z-order. When this condition occurs, Rdpshell.exe sends the wrong z-order instructions to mstsc.exe on the client. This fix introduces timer code to cause RdpShell.exe to wait for win32k.sys to finish computing the z-order before sending the new z-order to the client.

The fix is likely to get released by March or April.

I will provide you with the update, as and when if there is any.”

Also:
“I’ve been informed by Microsoft Support that the the hotfix currently is scheduled for release at March 21st.”
