What Are The Benefits Of Using The Cloud In Your Workplace 

Cloud services are available on almost all devices now, you are able to use them on mobile, desktop and laptops and many people utilise them without even realising that they are.

The cloud allows you to access all your information from any device which is connected without storing said information on any one device. It exists within the internet and can be a great way to store data without using up valuable storage on your devices.

One of the most common ways people use the cloud in their everyday lives is to store images and videos. Most smartphones have a built-in cloud which will store photos and videos, allowing you to access them as and when you wish but without storing them on the phone itself.

This technology can be used in many other ways as well. Many businesses now use the cloud to store documents and data which need to be accessed by many different employees.

Rather than each employee having a copy of these documents stored on their own device, the information is stored in the cloud which is then accessed by all employees.

This can make collaborative work much easier as employees are able to work from the same document, rather than having to update documents as they go so everyone is on the same page.

It can also help to make data more secure, as the documents and information are stored in a secure cloud server, rather than everyone having individual personal access on their devices.

There are many benefits to using the cloud for your business and it ca revolutionise the way your workplace works. If you don’t already use the cloud, here are some reasons why you should make the switch:

The cloud is flexible and allows you to minimise the IT resources used by your company. The capacity of your cloud can be increased or decreased based on what you use it for, therefore allowing you to use the minimal amount of resources necessary.

This in turn leads to cost savings, as you no longer need to provide employees with the software and devices needed to handle large volumes of information.

Using less heavy-duty machinery and devices means lower maintenance costs and upfront costs as well as reducing the amount spent on energy in order to power these more hefty machines.

The cloud also allows for great collaboration between workers and makes working together much easier. Employees can work from a single file, with live updates and be able to see what other workers have changed or contributed in real-time.

There is also greater accessibility for WFH and Remote workers who do not have the same ease of communication as in-office employees.

Using the cloud is a great way to ensure all workers are fully connected, up to date and always have access to the data and information they require to do their job whilst still upholding security and safety in the workplace.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
