Preventing IT Problems
There are a few ways to prevent IT problems from happening in your business. The first is to have a good antivirus and anti-malware program installed on all of your computers. The second is to make sure that all of your software is up-to-date. The third is to have a good backup plan in place in case of data loss. And finally, the fourth is to have a team in place who takes care of all of the above. Most business owners do not have the time to stay up-to-date on the latest IT threats.

What Is Included In IT Support?
IT support typically includes computer support, network administration, and data security. Some IT companies also offer consulting services to help businesses with their IT needs. At BL Technical, we generally bundle IT support and IT consulting. But this is decided on a case-by-case basis.
What Is The Difference Between IT Support and IT Consulting?
IT support is usually more reactive in nature and focuses on resolving IT issues as they arise. IT consulting is more proactive and helps businesses plan for their IT needs. We like to combine the two in order to help our businesses continue operating even as they are making decisions about their future growth.
