When starting a small business, getting your network and systems set up correctly can be critical. CenturyLink offers on-demand IT support for hardware and software. Depending on your small business needs, you can get assistance with wireless network set-up, advanced network configuration, and assistance with viruses or malware.

Security

Cybersecurity is just as important for small businesses as it is for corporations. CenturyLink offers two products to help protect your website and your email systems. First secure your email systems with Symantec Email Security.cloud. This tool offers inbound email filtering, outbound email protection and continuity assistance with email storage, access and use during a server outage. You can also take steps to secure your website, with SiteLock, which offers protection against hackers, malware, SQL injections, cross-site scripting and viruses. It can also protect you from ending up on blacklists with advanced reputation management and monitoring services.

Email archiving

When it comes to your team’s email, it may be important to store emails for future reference, especially if you need to be HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. MessageSolution Email Archiving & eDiscovery helps reduce the cost and complexity of email storage and backups, offering fully automated processes and powerful search features. This cost-effective tool allows you to store emails in the cloud, eliminating the need to set up a server.
