With the COVID-19 pandemic still amongst us, a lot of companies are still working remotely.
The majority of companies take time to protect data through cloud-based backups and software updates but many neglect to protect their physical infrastructure. It is this physical infrastructure that keeps equipment running at optimal performance and reduces downtime and data loss if things go wrong – it is essential to protect it effectively.
A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) system is critical equipment for any business, and it is advisable to install trusted reliable brands. All businesses will inevitably experience downtime due to I.T. issues.
Increasingly, these issues are caused by power interruptions such as spikes and surges, as well as complete mains failure. During these electrical power problems, businesses with adequate back-up power will remain protected and sensitive I.T. equipment will continue as usual.

Imagine being off site, working from home and being able to remotely monitor all of your sites connected assets on your P.C. Laptop or mobile device? There is a solution. EcoStruxure IT by APC Schneider Electric will increase your ability to manage your entire connected site.
