Is the Cloud For Your Business?

One of the the terms flung around these days besides 'Friend Me', "Tweet Me', or 'Let's Link Up', is the 'Cloud'. With internet connectivity becoming faster, many businesses are looking at the allure of off sourcing their email, documents, CRM to the cloud environment. However, is this the best place for YOUR company?

At Renascence IT Consulting, Inc. we have experience migrating companies to a cloud position for their email and other infrastructure needs. We are able to evaluate if the benefits might be outweighed by costs specific to your company. If you are considering moving to this new environment, contact us and we can make sure it is the right decision.

Email or contact us if you want a team of IT professionals that not only has years of experience in the field, but also is at the cutting edge of I.T.

Adobe Issues Massive Reader Patch

Adobe has released one of its most significant patches ever. This fixes over 23 bugs with its Adobe Reader product. While not quite as high as the 29 patches from last year, it is still a huge download to plug holes that could lead to malicious content being run on a user's computer.

At Renascence IT Consulting, Inc. we are committed to staying on top of programs your company uses and making sure that they are up to date, protecting your data from being leaked out to the internet. We also look at alternative programs that might be more secure and stable than some of the popular ones on the market. These products may be faster, cost less, and protect your environment better, thus leaving your business with more uptime and money in its coffers. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
