Hanson Headlines - Data Colocation: A Scalable Solution


Hanson Information Systems Logo
Last month, we talked about offsite backup and cloud computing. The heart and brain of either of those two systems is data colocation, but what exactly is colocation?

Data colocation is a solution for businesses that have a need to host their data in a data center, but either can't afford or don't have the physical space to have their own center on site.

Perhaps the best part of data colocation is the inherent flexibility it affords. Businesses large and small can benefit from having a data colocation plan in place. Interested in setting up colocation for your business? Call Hanson Information Systems today to discuss how our state-of-the-art data center can work for you.

Why Security Audits for Business Matter

Every component in your business' network acts as a link in a chain. If one component, small or large, is compromised, the chain could break.

IT security audits serve as the way to check your total system, top to bottom, to isolate any existing or possible vulnerabilities. At Hanson, we have the experience to know what to look for and have performed security auditing for clients in the financial sector, gaming, healthcare, and more.

To learn more about security audits, check out this article from Tripwire. Ready to get to the bottom of your security? Call Hanson today to speak to one of our skilled systems administrators.

Google Apps No Longer Native on Android in EU

In what is being seen as a major turning of the tide, the European Commission has determined it is unlawful for makers of Android mobile phones to ship phones without Google Apps built in.

Being that Android is a Google product, this is a huge deal. Imagine purchasing an iPhone and not having iTunes or Apple Music on the device. 

Read more about the European Commission's lawsuit and ruling against Google here, from the Verge.
