UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)
Provides battery backup power that allows you to work through short and medium length power outages. Also safeguards your equipment from damaging surges and spikes that travel along your utility and phone lines.
Quality PC Power Supply
Poor quality generic-brand power supplies are often the root of PC failure and data corruption.
First and foremost, a power supply should deliver clean, consistent power to system components. Power supply efficiency is also important; an efficient power supply can save you money on every electricity bill, especially if you have your system running 24/7. Environmental variables like temperatures and noise levels matter, too.
Viruses/spyware/adware can leave your computer system vulnerable to data corruption and or theft of your data. It is crucial to maintain an up to date security system for your computer. "BEST of BREED" – TrustPort's Internet Security Antivirus & MalwareBytes Anti-Malware are two of the industry leaders in data security, specializing in Antivirus protection against email and web based security threats.
Regular backup habits are essential to everyone who uses a computer with important information. It takes just a few accidental clicks of the mouse - or worse, one isolated hardware failure - and valuable data can be lost.
One dilemma for backup users is often where to put their backups. Storing them on your own hard drive is one option but obviously not the best option. Not everyone wants to split their backups into several parts using a CD or DVD burner, and an external hard drive isn't a standard fixture on many users' desks. Backing up to a computer offsite means that your data will end up on a different drive or computer, which basically halves the chance of catastrophic loss. This can be especially useful for office users.
System and Software Updates
An important part of maintaining complete PC system security is keeping your Anti-Virus and Operating System updated. Frequent updates protect against the latest security threats lowering chances of data theft and corruption.
