Debunking the Myth That Small Businesses Don’t Need Network Troubleshooting Solutions
July 30, 2014
As a small- to medium-sized business (SMB) leader, you may be under the impression that network troubleshooting is an IT tool used primarily amongst large enterprises. But network troubleshooting is useful for businesses of all sizes—especially smaller companies that lack the necessary resources for recovering from lengthy network outages. These companies require solutions that can provide extra network visibility to solve problems quickly when they arise.
Without the right tools to provide this in-depth visibility, merely discovering network problems can be a nightmare. Consider that network hardware failure is the leading cause of downtime for SMBs, accounting for 55 percent of all outages. Often, trying to find the root cause of a hardware failure is like searching for a needle in a haystack. It could take hours—even days—to locate the problem. In fact, it takes an average of about 30 hours for a business to recover from a network failure. (Source: above link)
