Are You A "Sitting Duck"?
Small businesses are under attack. Right now, extremely dangerous and well-funded cybercrime rings in China, Russia and the Ukraine are using sophisticated software systems to hack into thousands of small businesses to steal credit cards and client information, and swindle money directly out of your bank account. Some are even being funded by their own government to attack small, virtually defenseless businesses.
Don’t think you’re in danger because you’re “small” and not a big target like a Target or Home Depot? Think again. 82,000 NEW malware threats are being released every single day and HALF of the cyber-attacks occurring are aimed at small businesses; you just don’t hear about it because it’s kept quiet for fear of attracting bad PR, lawsuits and data-breach fines, and out of sheer embarrassment.
In fact, the National Cyber Security Alliance reports that one in five small businesses have been victims of cybercrime in the last year – and that number is growing rapidly as more businesses utilize cloud computing and mobile devices, and store more information online. Quite simply, most small businesses are low-hanging fruit to hackers due to their lack of adequate security systems.
As a local IT support company, we work day and night to protect our clients from these attacks – and unfortunately we see, on a regular basis, hardworking entrepreneurs being financially devastated by these lawless scumbags. We are determined to WARN as many businesses as possible of the VERY REAL threats facing their organization, so they have a chance to protect themselves and everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
It is our company’s mission to stop cybercrime, so we have put together a FREE Executive Report titled “7 Urgent Security Protections Every Business Should Have In Place Now”.
Inside this report you will discover:
- The #1 threat to your business that even the BEST firewalls and antivirus software can’t protect against.
- The biggest security risks with cloud computing and what you need to do to stay safe if you’re going to store client data, confdential data and financial information in the cloud.
- A common misconception about business bank fraud that will shock you – and 3 simple things you can do to protect your bank account from unauthorized access and theft.
- How to keep your network secure with the proliferation of mobile devices, cloud applications, e-mail, and social media sites connecting to your computer network.
OTHER IMPORTANT TIPS AND STRATEGIES FOR BUSINESSES
Just wanted to report that Jordan did my tech service from DataStream this afternoon. He got everything running including docking station, hub and printers to two systems (laptop and desktop). I was very happy with the service, it was effective and personable.

We often found ourselves having email and computer problems that took time away from doing other jobs. Luke came in and updated various programs (email, antivirus, etc) that have greatly improved the performance of our computers. He also installed a wireless connection between our buildings making for easier access to information. With our DataStream service plan we know our system is backed up and up-to-date. We are very thankful for the excellent service DataStream provides.

We would recommend Datastream to any business! We hired DataStream to manage our small business IT needs and Luke has been a pleasure to deal with every step of the way. He is professional and very responsive to our needs and would recommend Datastream to any business that wants to ensure their IT systems are up to date and running smoothly.

Quick response to problems and their knowledge of network systems and computers allows them to fix the problem right the first time. I never have to worry anymore about our network going down and how I am going to get it fixed. Most of the time you know as soon as I do that we are having a problem. That peace of mind is a tremendous benefit for me. You have the best network/computer service company I have ever experienced.

We have worked with several IT providers over the years that promised great things but failed to deliver. DataStream is the first IT provider that actually backed up their talk with real action. They have exceeded our expectations and continue to impress. Computer frustrations are a thing of the past and our productivity has soared. I no longer have to think about technology. They have become a real part of our team. If you are looking for a true partner to oversee your technology and look after your best interests, DataStream is the answer.

I will continue to count on Data Stream in the future! I made an appointment with Luke from Data Stream to do an Audit of my Network and Business computers. He was on time, well informed and tremendously improved the way my business computers and network systems function. I will continue to count on Data Stream in the future! Thanks Luke.

The DataStream solutions work great! I previously used SpyHunter & Norton Antivirus. Luke installed their simple and light app and it is way better. Norton and SpyHunter were resource hogs and slowed my computer boot up & I couldn't do anything when they were running in the background. The DataStream solutions work great!
Duane Pinkney – CEO
Thank you for your excellence in our network support! Our systems and network were running ok, but we were not receiving an adequate level of care and communication from our IT provider. DataStream installed a new backup service, replaced our Anti-Virus, and established a roadmap for future projects. DataStream thoroughly cleaned up our file sharing, password control, and smoothly transitioned us to take back control of our network.
Luigi Mansueti – President
Victoria Truss Ltd.
DataStream always answers the phone and responds quickly! From our existing IT provider we experienced issues with unclear billing, changing staff on our account, and felt we weren’t receiving good service. We decided to switch to DataStream and they did a full network assessment, network repair, and vastly simplified and streamed our computer systems. We are very happy with the dedicated IT support and care that DataStream has provided.
Bahig Wanas – Division Engineer
Precision Engineering Ltd.
DataStream smoothly transitioned us to take back control of our network! Over the course of several years we had used support staff that was not focused on the IT infrastructure and used outside contract IT providers as needed to maintain our systems. DataStream worked with us to address priority issues as budget would allow and implemented a project plan to update our network, software systems, and work with our existing operations. DataStream always answers the phone and responds quickly to whatever we need.
Wally Price – Owner
Price's Lock & Safe
DataStream is always quick to respond and I know our best interests are being looked after as they ensure we have the best solutions for our needs. Their proactive approach to technology means problems seldom crop up, however, they get things sorted out quickly and efficiently when they do. DataStream is a provider I would strongly recommend.
