Is Your Phone Tracking You?

Is Your Phone Tracking You?

The True answer is, YES!

If you have a smart phone it has GPS, Global Positioning System, functionality.  

The real question is who has access to this information.  According to Apple and Google you can turn this function or Location Setting off for apps and in general.  Now they have opted to make the Covid location and notification function a part of the operating system as opposed to an app like Health or Four Square for instance that you can disable easily.  

To that end we have provided you with a step by step method to opt in or out.

It is our belief that YOU should always be in control of ALL forms of your Privacy and security.

Secure Policies and Procedures

As a company, one of the critical areas of security concern is how data is handled and by whom.  Working with our clients to develop policies and procedures we can help to mitigate security concerns.  On-boarding and off-boarding employees can be handled smoothly and securely without potential data loss and damage to the companies reputation.

These are just a few areas our Managed IT Solutions can assist you with!

How Can YOU Help?

How Can YOU Help?

Do you know someone who’s company is beginning to need technical help?
Are they great at what they do but are struggling with their computers?

As companies reach a particular size they begin to require specialization.  Accounting is usually the first to break off.  Shortly thereafter a business starts to need an IT expert to help.  One who can guide them through the myriad of offerings, services and technologies just to continue Business as Usual.

As companies grow large enough they can afford an internal IT department who can set in place policies and security procedures. This allows the company to leverage the advantages of new tech, while at the same time protecting the data that has given the company it’s fighting edge.

Are the back up procedures in place across the company to mitigate data loss?  Are the company’s data assets, including financial records safe from employee attrition and off-boarding?

These are examples of issues that enterprise level corporations deal with everyday and can be a costly lesson if not prepared for as a small business grows.

We are here to help!  ZeroLimits and Associates have a long history handling start up and enterprise level clients.  We are choosing to focus on smaller businesses that the large Managed IT firms have left behind.  

If you know of someone who might benefit from our special talents, Please recommend us to your friends and we will take it from there!
