NSA Computer Exchange Corporation Unveils Data Protection Cloud Suite


Hicksville, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

After nearly six months in research and due diligence, Hicksville-based NSA Computer Exchange Corp. has launched its Cloud Suite solution. Cloud Suite powered by Axcient is a disaster recovery, business continuity, and monitoring solution for small- to medium-sized businesses.

The main purpose of the Cloud Suite is to protect businesses from data loss due to man-made issues (fire, theft, accidents, etc.), natural disasters (flood, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.), or server outages, and get them back on their feet in a fraction of the time of other solutions available today. NSAs focus and client commitment is providing the most user friendly, responsive, and intuitive cloud recovery system on the market. More focus was put into making sure the product could adequately protect businesses from the trials of sudden disasters.

Speaking of the new cloud computing tools, Patrick VanPutte, President of NSA Computer Exchange Corp., said that, “So many of our customers that have experienced natural disasters have suffered significant losses due to data loss. If the original hardware holding backup information is unavailable or damaged, this means weeks of waiting for data recovery. Catastrophic data loss is the demise of many companies — most never recover or reopen. I often talk to CEOs and business owners that are constantly worried about protecting their data. NSA has installed systems that help our customers sleep better at night.

NSAs Cloud Suite takes virtual images of client servers, operating systems, applications, and other vital company data, and caches it into an onsite appliance, which sends encrypted images to the cloud. Whether the main physical server is down or not, NSAs Cloud Suite solution can give a company access to its data within minutes. NSAs Cloud Suite gives businesses the tools they need to back up, monitor and access their data quickly and easily.

Providing clients with complete data protection in a simple web interface, no matter what the situation, is the main benefit of using the new NSA Computer Exchange cloud computing system. Cloud Suite mitigates risks that come with doing business in the digital age. “Even when a server is down, there will be no downtime for the business, as it is running from the cloud suite,” VanPutte said. “With just a simple click, the NSA Cloud Suite solution lets you restore lost data in minutes, not days, weeks or even months like other solutions. This clearly minimizes risks and hazard costs.”

About NSA Computer Exchange Corp.:

NSA Computer Exchange has been in the business of solving problems and providing solutions for wholesale distributors across the country since 1984. Neil Smilowitz, founder and Pat VanPutte, President and CEO continue to lead NSA today by providing innovative and personable solutions to businesses from coast to coast. Change, whether internal or external, is inevitable. With technology, the velocity of change is ever increasing. Business today does not stand still. Businesses that make proactive decisions instead of reacting to undesirable circumstances usually take the lead. Let NSA’s knowledge and expertise help you take the lead.

Bytes Computer and Network Solutions Adds Resident Shield and Expanded Scan Schedule to PC Complete Care Computer Cleanup and Protection Product


Scottsbluff, NE (PRWEB) November 29, 2012

We wanted to better protect our customers from virus and malware threats on the Internet, says Landon Clark, Bytes Computer and Network Solutions Network Specialist. Its important for us to stay on-top of protection because we are taking on the job of managing that for our customers. The company recently added Resident Shield to their PC Complete Care computer cleanup and protection package along with daily, rather than weekly, system scans.

It would appear they have good reason to do so. According to the most recent Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, vulnerabilities, or weaknesses in software, applications and web browsers that enable an attacker to compromise the systems running them, have increased 11.3 percent since the second half of 2011. Exploits, or the malicious codes that target these vulnerabilities, have also increasedparticularly those delivered through HTML and JavaScript on infected web pages.

While the PC Complete Care product has resulted in a tremendous reduction in the number of customers infected, we still had few who were accidentally getting malware on their machines, says Clark. Initially, we only scanned once a week to keep customers computer speed as high as possible. However, we discovered the scan doesnt utilize many resourcesit doesnt make the computer slowso we moved to daily scans. Its all about balancing performance and maintenance.

Resident Shield is another upgrade to the PC Complete Care protection package. Its a lightweight scanner that monitors activity and downloads on the computer for potential threats, Clark says. It uses heuristics technology, meaning it assesses files for the common behaviors and attributes associated with malware instead of relying on malware definitions alone.

Once again, this puts Bytes Computer and Network Solutions at the head of the class. Resident Shield will keep us a step ahead in detecting those zero-day viruses that may not have a definition yet, says Clark. PC Complete Care offers all the maintenance, protection, monitoring, and computer help support a home computer user needs. Its the ultimate fix and prevention toolwe just have to make people aware of it.

About Bytes Computer and Network Solutions

Bytes Computer and Network Solutions is the premier source for cutting edge service, on-site and remote computer help support, technology, custom applications, web design and cloud hosting for businesses and individuals in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and nationwide. Established in 2001, the company, led by a group of youthful software enthusiasts, now grosses over $ 1 million annually. Their newest comprehensive computer reliability service, PC Complete Care, increases computer speed and is earning rave reviews from business and individual clients.
