We find that the most efficient practice to manage your computers and business is with Managed Service care. OUTGROVE LLC offers three, flat rate, Managed Service options.
·OUTGROVE Health & Wellness
·OUTGROVE All Inclusive
We monitor your Mac Desktops, Laptops or Servers and warn of any issues related to backups, disk drives, malware & viruses, and system performance. Think of OUTGROVE Monitoring as a preventative practice to maintain your Mac Computers.
OUTGROVE Monitoring monitors:
· DISK DRIVES - We monitor when you are running low on disk space. Low disk space can happen unexpectedly and when it does, it potential to corrupt a system and cause data loss. We also monitor for disk input/output (I/O) errors (a precursor to a drive failure), SMART errors, boot disk selection changes, false mounts, and more.
· BACKUPS - Time Machine, external drive backups, server and cloud backups are checked and verified evry hour.
· SYSTEM PERFORMANCE - Keeping a Mac computer running at peak performance has never been easier. We'll alert you to issues effecting productivity such as kernal panics, faulty RAM, failing laptop batteries, unplanned reboots and even power-on self-tests which usually go unnoticed.
· NETWORKS - Slow network performance can be caused by poor cables, failing network hardware or your Internet service. We monitor to identify network errors as they happen and can help you narrow down the cause by alerting you when there is an excessive number of network errors.
· MALWARE & VIRUSES - No single Malware detection software can locate and eliminate all threats. OUTGROVE Proactive helps by adding an additional layer of Malware protection to your existing solution(s).
· DEMOGRAPHICS - While we're monitoring system resources, we'll keep track of other important information such as machine name, last logged in user, serial number, RAM, model number, OS & firmware versions, processors, uptime, and much more.
