Networking
As companies grow, it becomes increasingly important for IT equipment to be linked so that staff can easily communicate with one another, share files and use common printers. A network solution provided by Armco IT will ensure that all of your IT works perfectly together, saving you valuable time and resources. Read about how we helped staff at Patrick Stephenson Limited to work more efficiently by networking their office.

Server systems
In simple terms, a server is a special computer that 'serves' files, data, print and fax resources to other computers, both within an office and for companies that have branches at different sites. Every company is different and we have extensive experience of finding the right server to suit a specific business. This will streamline your operation and allow you to work more efficiently and effectively. Not only can we provide advice on the best options available, but can also install the server with the minimum of disruption. We can also suggest options that have less impact on the environment. The servers that we installed at Zarafa Holdings Limited have made a significant improvement to the way in which this expanding company works. Read more in their case study.

Backup and storage systems
Your business handles more and more data every day, making it essential to have the computer storage capacity to deal with this securely and efficiently. Let Armco IT review your current storage capacity, assess what backup you require and ensure that the solution chosen is ready to meet the future growth of your business. Armco IT offers comprehensive data protection solutions to optimise backup and recovery processes, helping to reduce the risk of data loss or corruption.

Remote access
We can fix a large proportion of issues remotely by accessing desktops via a link from our offices. This system is easy to set up and very secure, saving time and resources. This has proved to be an extremely efficient method of working.

Security solutions – anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewalls
Electronic information is undoubtedly one of the most valuable assets within a business and you owe it to your business and your customers to protect this data from online threats. These threats, which include viruses, spam, spyware, phishing and inappropriate content, present real business risks such as impact to business continuity and loss of confidential information, all of which can have significant financial implications. We offer a wide range of affordable security packages to stop both known and unknown threats and to provide around the clock protection for your business, whatever its size.
If you are unfortunate enough to have already downloaded a virus, prompt action can often limit the amount of damage caused. Read our advice about what to do in the event that your computer picks up a virus or alternatively contact our offices.

Businesses are increasingly demanding higher quality and faster broadband to enable them to work more efficiently. For this reason, we have teamed up with Nynet, a commercial venture that was originally established by North Yorkshire County Council to provide high-speed broadband to the public sector. Additional funding means that extra capacity in this network can now be used to open the market up to Internet Service Providers who can supply the private sector. This solution has numerous benefits that help users to be more efficient and cost effective. Find out whether your company can benefit from Nynet by contacting Armco IT. [LINK TO PDF]
