Let the IT professionals worry about it
If we take a look back even as little as 5 years ago, remote access was generally reserved for IT professionals. The average user is still unaware of the relative ease with which this wonderful feature can be setup, and just how beneficial it can be. But I’m getting ahead of myself, what is this remote access I speak of? Terminal Services. Terminal Services allow users to connect to a computer anywhere in the world remotely requiring only an Internet connection.
What are some of the benefits of Terminal Services?
Users can connect to a server from anywhere in the world with a simple remote desktop connection or with Internet Explorer. Whether you are at a client’s or out in the field, you will be able to access your data and stay one step ahead of the competition. While your competitor is travelling back to the office, you can be making changes on the spot.

Security is a major concern for any company. Is your vital data safe? Are you protected from viruses and hackers? Is your data backed up in case of accidental data loss or hard drive failure? By using a dedicated server in a Terminal Services environment, you can ensure that your data is safe and accessible. Your provider will ensure that your data is safe by physically placing the server in a secure location, protected by alarm and reliable backups. Your provider will also apply security patches and keep the antivirus definitions up-to-date. Scheduled backups will be set to protect your data. Data loss is a contributing factor to many business failures. According to DTI/Price Waterhouse Coopers, seven out of ten small businesses that experience major data loss will go out of business within a year. Worried about hackers? Terminal Services can be accessed through an encrypted connection to avoid the possibility of your transmissions being intercepted and exploited by hackers.
