In this month’s newsletter, we’re focusing on how to make your business better by using the cloud.
Our starting point is a little WiFi 101 and discussing the main devices that make up a computer network today - from modems to switches. Then we look at the ways being “cloud first” can benefit your business. You may be surprised to learn how much your company is already using the cloud.
And although being “cloud first” can make your business better, it’s still important to make sure you're as safe as possible with your most sensitive systems and information. We share easy ways to make your business more secure.
On that note, we’re really excited about the recent launch of site-to-site VPN for the Router Firewall Plus (GX50). Not only does the GX50 give you additional protection, we also show how it can help your business grow.
WiFi 101: Networking Basics from Modems to Switches
Small business owners are often faced with being their own IT experts, so we take a closer look at the essential hardware of a network. Modems, routers, access points, and switches all play an important role and can help your business grow.
Cloud First: 5 Ways Cloud Computing Can Make Your Business Better
“Cloud first” is the new normal for businesses of all sizes. 94% of companies are using cloud services in 2022, largely because it’s needed to compete in a hybrid world. We explore what the cloud is, how you’re already using it, and ways it can make your business better.
Being "cloud first" has many benefits, but you may feel slightly vulnerable with so much of your business online. Nearly 50% of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses, so we explore six simple but extremely effective steps to staying secure in the cloud.
The Router Firewall Plus (GX50) now offers site-to-site VPN! In addition, you can manage multiple locations under one company name with the app or web portal. We show how Meraki Go can be your networking partner as your company grows - from client VPN to multi-site to site-to-site VPN.
Your Guest WiFi network name should be easy for your customers to recognize. However, in order to keep your company secure, the names of your business networks should not be obvious. Making those network names (like POS systems) complicated and confusing helps protect you from any hackers.
Meet the increasing demands of the hybrid business model with Meraki.
