Corporate Sabotage


Today's Deseret News carries a story about corporate sabotage. Seems a company in American Fork fired a systems administrator and the guy took their systems down. The story is a little lame, but the business owner claims $20,000 per day in losses and says they've been down five days. This is a big problem for small businesses---maybe bigger in relative terms than it is for large businesses who have more resources.

As small businesses rely more and more on computers, they have very few resources that they can lean on to provide computer support. Companies like Direct Pointe can provide first class IT support for standardized things like file, print, and messaging, but that doesn't help with things that require more custom approaches.
