The Standard Office Systems South Office is receiving an upgrade in the form of new residency in Newnan, GA. Although the company has had a presence in the area for several decades, the South Office needed more space for its growing operations: “Moves are always big deals [from a logistics standpoint], but because of our growth and our projected growth, a larger office made sense,” stated Bryan Ammons, President of Standard Office Systems.
Standard Office Systems has been named one of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2017 Best Places to Work! The honor was announced to the company back in August, and awarded to SOS at ABC’s annual awards banquet on September 6th, 2017. The honor is a symbolic example of the commitment that Standard Office Systems holds to foster a culture of teamwork and camaraderie within the workplace.

Let's explore what to consider when searching for managed IT services, and then see what you can expect it will cost your business.
In 2012, the Federal Communications Commission created a committee that listed the 10 best practices for small businesses pertaining to cyber security solutions. With the near constant news of data breaches occurring within large corporations, we thought it would not hurt to publish another list of “Best Practices,” that are not just good for small businesses, but all businesses. With 4,000 businesses being hit by cyber-attacks every day, companies can no longer afford to assume they are too small to be a target. In fact, smaller companies are more often a target because their security is far simpler to work around. Following these simple protocols within your organization will have a significant impact on your company’s network security.
