Controlling computers in hazardous locations, such as in manufacturing plants, poses safety issues. In these situations, KVM technology can be effective, enabling users to control on-premise computers remotely, in a secure, safe location. They can access and configure servers without risk of harm and without compromising work performance. The latter is an important point to make, because KVM is necessary in these industrial settings in order to have access on a hardware level. In this environment, that is critical because, often, computer hardware in industrial settings must be in close proximity of the machinery being operated.

In addition to providing physical safety, KVM technology ensures a level of security that software cannot deliver. A KVM switch provides a direct connection with a keyboard, monitor and mouse, as opposed to remotely accessing targets via the Internet, which leaves the transmission of information vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

When optimizing your online presence it is important to make sure that you have a website that is actually worth optimizing.

Business website owners must create a website that visitors will embrace because it provides the information they need. The bottom line is that your website needs to be in shape before you bring in visitors through optimization.

The first step in creating a successful business website is choosing the right platform for your business goals.

The first decision a company needs to make before embarking on the creation of a website is what technology, or platform, the site will be built on. The options are endless, from custom codes and development environments to content management systems and free platforms like WordPress.

The important considerations to keep in mind when selecting a platform are as follows:

' Capability: Choose a platform that will support the sophistication of your design and be sure to check if any extra features will be easily integrated.

' Usability: Your platform should make it easy for non-technical users to add or update content, add new pages and add new sections to the website.

' Search engine compatibility: Your platform should allow you to produce clean, W3C-vaild codes, easily add meta tags and customize page URLs. Most modern CMS systems are relatively search-friendly, but it is a critical component for optimization.

' Scalability: Your website's platform should support the planned size and complexity of your website, as well as provide room for growth.

' Mobility: Although visits from smart phones and tablets currently account for only seven percent of online traffic worldwide, that figure is expected to grow rapidly. Make sure that your platform can serve up an optimized experience on both desktop and mobile devices.

It is important to choose your platform wisely, because you will be stuck with it until you reach the point of redesigning or redeveloping your site. Always avoid obscure platforms that force you to rely on a single consultant or website development agency for support.

Consider the following tips to develop a stronger Internet presence for your company:

  1. Offer a professional website design. Running a business can be expensive, which is why so many business owners look to cut corners. However, when it comes to tightening your budget, website design and website development are not areas where you should be skimping. If you want to be successful online and establish credibility, you need to invest in a professional, eye-catching, user-friendly website design.
  2. Elicit trust. If your website lacks the basics, like a phone number and address, you will turn a lot of potential customers off. Always post your full contact info, including your address, phone number and email throughout your website.
  3. Use logos. Do you work with a lot of great clients or brands? If so, feature their logos prominently on your website so that your prospective customers will know that your company is credible.
  4. Publish testimonials. Testimonials are important in developing your online presence. Remember that it is easy to spot fakes, so only use real testimonials to show your potential customers that you are the real deal.
  5. Show yourself and your staff. Use bios and photos to earn the trust of perspective clients and customers.
  6. Keep an eye on your online reputation. ‘Google’ your company’s name regularly for a chance to interact with your customers. If someone had a negative experience and is bashing you on a review site, you can leave them a comment telling them how to get in touch with you and remedy the situation.
