In 2015, it’s all about keeping your technology close and your business operations closer.  Take-with-you software, security and gadgets that help you efficiently and effectively grow your business from anywhere – while protecting what you already have -are the name of the game this year.  If you are looking to take the next big step with your small business, consider the following hot technologies:

Cloud Computing

If you aren’t taking advantage of cloud technology, you could be missing out on the most secure method of file storage available and the convenience of being able to access and share your files from nearly anywhere. Consider the small business-friendly, Hybrid Cloud, which offers affordable and fast disaster recovery that combines the convenience of local backup with the strength of the cloud.

Cyber-Security Protection

Stories of security breaches at major corporations dominate headlines but, according to the National Cyber Security Alliance, small businesses are far more susceptible to cyber attacks than their larger counterparts. Make it a priority in 2015 to put a plan in place to protect your business from cyber threats.

Unified Communications

With businesses depending more and more on mobile technology for working on the go, unified communications will become increasingly important in 2015 and beyond.  UC integrates voicemail, email, SMS, web, desktop sharing, and video conferencing, etc. UC encompasses all forms of communications that are exchanged via a network.
