September 22, 2015 |

Keystroke logging is a common practice in big companies when it comes to monitoring their employees’ computer activities, especially when the employees use gadgets or devices that the company provides.

High Speed SMBs: Why Internet Matters to Small Businesses

May 15, 2013 |

As little as 5 years ago, the internet sales market was completely geared towards selling businesses on the benefits of speed. The speed of your internet connection was framed as a make-or-break factor for businesses, one that could be the difference between success and failure. Yet in the eyes of many consumers, we have hit an internet speed plateau. Now that most people use a broadband connection, pages appear seemingly instantaneously. The only reason speed supposedly matters anymore is to ensure that downloads and streaming work as efficiently as possible, and these are perceived as the worries of homes—not businesses. In the eyes of offices everywhere, paying extra for super-speed broadband might not seem worth the cost.

Yet in reality, the new malaise about opting for high-speed internet can be extremely damaging to businesses. There are a multitude of reasons why high speed is important for small businesses in this day and age. A robust … Read More
