Preventative maintenance is important for many aspects of your business, including IT solutions. Computer systems need maintenance just like your building’s HVAC and electrical equipment, as you need to protect sensitive data and online files.

Anti-Virus Software

Anti-virus software updates are crucial for work computers, as they will help to minimize the risks associated with receiving bad files. It’s crucial to keep your anti-virus software up-to-date and to perform regular virus scans on all devices- including any personal devices that employees use to open sensitive or valuable documents. This also includes anti-malware and spyware scans to prevent intruders (or hackers) from accessing unauthorized data access, identity theft, and corrupting your systems by malware. This is crucial for every business, but especially those with online shopping or online banking, as they involve secure transfers or confidential information from customers.

Data Backups

It is also essential to back up your data regularly with offsite backup protection and disaster recovery planning. Backups play a critical role in data protection against threats such as ransomware and increase your system’s uptime and data availability in case of data loss.

General Cleanup

It’s also essential to perform a general cleanup every few weeks to remove any unnecessary files and programs. This frees up disk space on your computer, allowing for an overall system performance improvement and optimizing system boot-up times.

Hardware Inventory

IT preventative maintenance also includes staying updated on the hardware inventory with periodic reviews and recommendations for necessary system upgrades. By proactively planning for hardware upgrades and replacements, you will prevent last minute, expensive purchases and maintain a continuous, functional system.
