Helping you navigate the labyrinth of technology.
In today’s competitive landscape, modernizing your technology capabilities is more than a necessity; it can be a game-changer. From strategy to execution, we help transform your business by optimizing and securing your technology environment with innovative solutions that better position your company for the future.
Sometimes, just knowing if change is needed is a challenge, let alone what change. It's best to have a professional for the job when it's beyond your grasp. After all, that's why you have the business you do. The same concept applies to your technology. Sure, you're capable and resourceful and could likely get by to a degree, but why just get by when you can propel your business forward with the right tools! Brake Designs will be with you every step of the way through Assessing, Planning, Preparing, Executing, and Evaluating in any scope for tech support, graphic design, online marketing, and/or cyber security.
When beginning to look into any changes in technology, the first step is assessment. With our experience and expert knowledge, we can assess any situation to make recommendations. This provides the needed guidance to not just move forward, but to grow. Determining what, if anything, needs to be done is one of the most daunting tasks when it's something you really don't want to be dealing with from the start anyway. But with one free consultation per partnership, you can rest assured knowing that we have not only the assessment covered, but can help you into the next phase of planning as well.
Once the assessments are completed and it's known what is needed, then comes the planning. There has never been a highly successful person or business that got to the pinnacle without good planning. Or if they did, then they were quick to fall because they could not maintain! At Brake Designs, we know the importance if getting it right the first time. After all, a guiding concept we work and live by is that "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right"! When planning your project(s) we are not aiming to just make a quick buck, but looking to the future. It's important to plan for growth, accomplishments, change, and even the bad. We always hope for the best, but plan for the worst. So no matter what may come your way, you're always well prepared due to careful planning!
As the next phase in making your technology what it needs to be, preparing is just as key as the two steps prior. All of the assessing and planning go for naught if the preparation isn't what it needs to be. This is where the rubber meets the road. Good preparation is what will ensure little to no down time, prevent loss of data, time, or money and make any changes that much easier to deal with. It also is what leads us to the next phase: Execution.
Now, you're at the point of implementing the change(s)! This is where all of the other steps when carefully conducted come together and pay off. This is where the productivity begins to pick up, or the tasks get more efficient, or satisfaction begins to increase. But in every instance, is the moment of reckoning. It is this moment that you have worked hard for and now get to start reaping the fruits of your labor!
Once all of the work is completed, the changes are made, the dust has settled, then is the time to evaluate everything. It is a core value of Brake Designs that we take nothing for granted. Although we ensure you get a professional job each and every time, part of that is to ensure that things are going exactly as we want them to. But we don't just take our word for it, we go by what you our partner has to say!
Branding is a way of identifying your business. It is how your customers recognize and experience your services or products. A strong brand is more than just a logo — it's reflected in everything from your customer service style, staff uniforms, business cards and premises to your marketing materials and advertising. And most definitely your website!
But why stop there? Want a custom app to drive sales, share pertinent information, or to keep closely connected with customers? We have you covered!
And of course, don't forget about social media. In our ever growing world of technology, currently over HALF of the entire world population utilize social media platforms. That's a huge potential reach!
Websites have become an integral part of business branding, so it's imperative to have an expert AND functional design. It's true, there are many tools that make it easy to put up a website within a few hours, if not minutes. But there's more to a website than just some pictures, a few paragraphs, and a link or two. It's your business' home on the internet. If you run a store front, you're not just going to tape together some cardboard to make 4 walls, paint it, stick a few pictures on it and call it good. Why should your website be any different? It is, after all, the backbone and foundation of your online presence and an important piece in building customer trust.
Your brand should reflect what your business stands for and what sets it apart from your competitors — it expresses the qualities, strengths and 'personality' of your business. Our goal when helping you brand your business is to capture the essence of what you're all about! It's not just a catchy logo, it's an expression of identity! And then to keep it consistent across all platforms. No one likes a two-faced person and businesses are no exception. You want them to recognize your amazing company no matter where they encounter you.
Creating a strong brand involves in-depth market research to work out why customers should be attracted to your business. A strong brand will help customers to remember your business and feel greater confidence that your products or services will suit their needs. Customers tend to be loyal to a brand they trust.
Branding should be considered in the early stages of starting a business — launching a business with a strong brand will give you a greater chance of success. However, if you're somewhat established but not yet well branded, it's never too late!
What is cyber security all about?
A successful cyber security approach has multiple layers of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, or data that one intends to keep safe. In an organization, the people, processes, and technology must all complement one another to create an effective defense from cyber attacks. A unified threat management system can automate integrations across products and accelerate key security operations functions: detection, investigation, and remediation. If not practiced in all areas of business (operating procedures, tech support, website, and even online marketing) then you could be vulnerable. A chain is only as strong as the weakest link, and your business is only as secure as it's most easily attacked component. Which is exactly why we offer cyber security focused services as well as design.
Users must understand and comply with basic data security principles like choosing strong passwords, being wary of attachments in email, and backing up data. Training is key.
Organizations must have a framework for how they deal with both attempted and successful cyber attacks. One well-respected framework can guide you. It explains how you can identify attacks, protect systems, detect and respond to threats, and recover from successful attacks. This is the road-map to tech success in any business!
Technology is essential to giving organizations and individuals the computer security tools needed to protect themselves from cyber attacks. Three main entities must be protected: endpoint devices (like computers, smart devices, and routers); networks; and the cloud (online storage, services, and even your website). Common technology used to protect these entities include next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions among a myriad of other options. So it's vital to have someone to help you navigate those murky waters.
Why is cyber security important?
In today’s connected world, everyone benefits from advanced cyberdefense programs. At an individual level, a cybersecurity attack can result in everything from identity theft, to extortion attempts, to the loss of important data like family photos, tax documents, or financials. At a company level a breach of security could result in production down time, loss of information, compromised financial information, and loss of equipment functionality resulting in catastrophic fallout that could even lead to having to permanently shut the doors and close up shop.
Other vectors that could be impacted are those that everyone relies on. Critical infrastructures such as power plants, hospitals, and financial service companies. Securing these and other organizations is essential to keeping our society functioning.
We take these potential threats VERY seriously!
