Frequently Asked IT Support and Consulting Questions from New York City Accounting Firms

Though the cloud is a popular business solution, it isn’t necessarily the right tool for every business. A managed IT services professional can best help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of migrating your systems to the Cloud.

The Cloud can, however, be used to help your accounting business to see an increase in office productivity while still providing you with secure and reliable access to all of your data and applications. Cloud-based solutions also often dramatically reduce IT overhead costs.

Employing a full-time IT person to deal strictly with security against cyber attacks is a costly and inefficient use of your resources. Moving to security services with Setton Consulting offers you guaranteed security backed by strict regulations governing the necessary precautions to safeguard your client data.

Best of all, new users can be added seamlessly, meaning they can get to work right away.
