Zoho CRM vs. Freshsales
Zoho CRM vs. Freshsales

Freshsales CRM and Zoho CRM are two feature-rich and powerful CRMs for your company. Are you unsure which one is best for you? This Blog provides a detailed feature comparison with everything you need to make an informed decision.

Is Freshsales equipped with everything you require?

Freshsales CRM is a simple CRM with a minimal user interface designed for small businesses and startups. Built-in email, phone, chat, and telephony help users have a more streamlined experience. Furthermore, its native integration with the Freshworks platform allows users to extend the CRM's scope by integrating with native help desk and email marketing software.

However, businesses grow quickly and soon require enterprise-level functionality, which Freshsales falls short of. Freshsales has limited customization options as well as a lack of process automation capabilities, in-depth analytics, and developer platform functions, which may be less important for small businesses with limited budgets looking for a quick solution, but are essential for larger companies. Businesses that are thinking bigger or more long-term about their future growth may prefer to start with a fully equipped scalable solution like Zoho.

Here's what Zoho CRM can do for your business.

Feature comparison

When selecting an Enterprise CRM, ensure it not only manages your traditional sales activities well, but also provides your organization with industry-leading CRM capabilities such as artificial intelligence, journey orchestration, and advanced analytics. See how Zoho CRM Enterprise and Freshsales stack up in terms of the most important CRM functions.

  1. Lead and deal management

The lead management functionality in Freshsales provides basic tools for capturing, qualifying, and nurturing leads. The detail view displays all of the contacts' calls, emails, meetings, notes, tasks, associated deals, and activity updates. You can define lifecycle stages based on the stage of a deal (prospect, MQL, negotiation, etc.).

The Freshsales iOS and Android mobile apps allow you to add tasks, notes, and appointments, send emails, and make phone calls. The Uber integration, which allows you to hail an Uber to on-site meetings directly from the app, is a standout feature. However, we discovered that some essential features, such as business card scanning and caller ID, were missing from the app.

Starting with the Growth plans, predictive lead scoring is available. You can also import leads from CSV files and map them to system fields. However, some important features, such as artificial intelligence for lead assignment and real-time prospect notifications (similar to Sales Signals in Zoho CRM), are not available in all Freshsales plans.

  1. Omnichannel support

Freshsales provides standard customer engagement channels such as phone, email, and chat. It integrates with Outlook and Gmail, giving sales representatives the ability to respond to emails directly from their CRM. All editions include live chat, and you can use chatbots to engage website visitors automatically when they arrive.

Social media engagement is something we have come to expect from any modern CRM, and Freshsales' lack of it is a letdown. This means you can't link your account to Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter to schedule and publish updates, monitor key terms, or analyze performance.

In any edition, there is no email parser function to capture data from customer emails. The BCC drop-box feature is also missing, which allows you to automatically pull emails sent to your leads and contacts from an external email service into your CRM by BCCing a unique email address for each user. Overall, we found Freshsales' omnichannel capabilities to be quite limited when compared to Zoho CRM.

  1. Process management and automation

Freshsales workflow rules enable you to automate routine sales tasks like sending emails, setting reminders, and updating records.

Macros are an important feature that Freshsales does not provide. At the click of a button, a user can send emails, create tasks, and update the value of a field in multiple records. Macros are available in all Zoho CRM editions.

We discovered a few other key automation features that were missing, such as a review process to prevent incorrect data from entering the system, an approval process to streamline deal approvals, and webhooks to send third-party app notifications from your CRM.

  1. Customization

In comparison to Zoho CRM, Freshsales provides fewer customization options. Basic customization features like creating custom modules and custom fields, as well as rearranging groups, are only available in the Professional edition.

The advanced customization options are limited. There is no sandbox to test changes before deployment, and there are no multi-page layouts. Picklist history tracking, web tabs, validation rules, sub-forms, and tab groups are also missing, making Freshsales difficult to recommend to any Enterprise.

  1. Analytics and Reporting

Freshsales provides basic analytics reports and dashboards to help you track your sales process. It includes a set of pre-built templates that you can use to get a bird's-eye view of your organization. You can also customize reports based on the modules you want to include, add filters, and select from a variety of chart types before sharing them with your organization via role-based access.

Freshsales lacks many analytical features offered by Zoho CRM, such as target meters, quadrants, cohort analysis, and zone maps. Drilling down to fine-tune your data is limited, and the lack of Google AdWords integration into analytics leaves a significant gap in your ability to assess how your ad spending translates into sign-ups.

  1. Sales Intelligence

Freddy, an AI-powered sales assistant, is part of Freshsales. Freddy uses CRM data to learn and provide insights, predictions, and recommendations tailored to your business and processes. Predictive lead scoring, predictive deal and forecast insights, and automated website chat responses with the Freddy AI answer bot are all AI features.

However, Freddy's lack of other useful AI functions such as voice and text conversational assistance, anomaly detection, competitor alerts, image validation, a prediction and recommendation builder, and intelligent workflow suggestions make him a difficult sell for organizations looking to improve their with AI assistance.

  1. Sales Enablement

Freshsales provides a basic set of sales enablement tools. Managing quotes and sales orders is included in the CPQ plan, which is priced separately at $19 per user per month.

The CPQ plan includes all of the core features, such as creating document templates, syncing invoices with deals, and tracking document activity. These features are included with Zoho CRM by default. Price books, wizards (to help with step-by-step data input), and review processes (to prevent data with errors from entering the CRM) are not available. A major disadvantage is the lack of a feature similar to Zoho CRM's Sales Inbox, which automatically prioritizes and organizes your emails based on deals.

  1. Marketing automation

Freshsales provides only the most basic marketing tools, such as mass email and email templates. To access more advanced features such as email campaigns, segmentation, and customer journeys, you must purchase and integrate Fresh marketer.

Freshsales lacks native, out-of-the-box marketing automation functions, making it difficult to understand your customer demographics and target specific customer groups.

  1. Team collaboration

Freshsales has a very limited feature set for team collaboration when compared to Zoho CRM. Even basic features such as instant messaging and group chats are unavailable, and there is no dedicated feed for teams to discuss ideas or post updates. To organize team communication, you will need to purchase a dedicated team collaboration app such as Slack or Microsoft Teams. Zoho CRM, , includes Zoho Cliq and team feeds, eliminating the need for additional team collaboration software.

To sync events and appointments in Freshsales, you can use an integration with Google Calendar or Office 365 Calendar.

Elementor

If you’ve been looking for an easy-to-use and powerful way to build your App or website, it’s understandable. Designing your site from scratch can be time-consuming, and confusing, and requires you to learn the ins and outs of a complicated system. Luckily for you, there are now two options: Elementor and Builder.io.

What’s Builder.io?

If you're new to web design or just looking for an easy way to create a responsive App or website, you may be wondering what Builder.io is and how it compares to other popular web design tools.Builder.io is a visual drag-and-drop website builder that makes it easy to create responsive App or website without any coding. Just add your content and Builder.io takes care of the rest, creating HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code for you.Builder.io also includes a built-in CMS so you can easily manage your website's content from one central location. Plus, with our growing library of free and premium templates, you can get started with Builder.io in no time! So, if you're looking for an easy way to create responsive websites without any coding, Builder.io is the tool for you!

There are several reasons to choose Builder.io over Elementor when it comes to App or web design. Here are some of the key advantages:

1. Builder is more versatile and flexible. It offers a wider range of features and options, making it easier to create complex designs.

2. Builder is better suited for advanced users. If you have experience with coding or other web development tools, you'll find Builder.io much easier to use.

3. Builder offers more control over the design process. With Elementor, you're somewhat limited in how you can customize your App or site. With Builder.io, you have complete control and can make whatever changes you want.

4. Builder is faster and more efficient. It's built on top of React, making it much faster than Elementor (based on Angular).

5 Overall, Builder is a better tool for those who want more control over their App or web design process and who need a more flexible and powerful toolkit.

There are a few cons to using Builder.io that should be considered before choosing it as your App or web design tool. First, it is a bit more expensive than some of the other options on the market. Second, it can be challenging to find support if you run into problems while using the software. Finally, Builder.io does not offer a free trial, so you must purchase a subscription before trying it out.

What’s Elementor?

Elementor is a WordPress plugin that allows you to create beautiful, responsive websites with drag and drop. Elementor is the best WordPress page builder because it's easy to use, and affordable. You can use Elementor to create any type of website, from a simple blog to an online store. The Pro version is ideal for larger websites and businesses. It includes all of the features of the free version, plus some advanced features like WooCommerce integration, pop-ups, and more.

Elementor is a web design tool for those who want complete control over their website's design. With Elementor, you can create custom designs for your website without having to code. This makes it a great option for those who are not familiar with coding or who want to create a unique website without having to learn to code.

Elementor has a few cons that you should be aware of before using it to design your website. First, Elementor is a bit resource-intensive, so it may slow down your website if you have a lot of content or plugins installed. Additionally, while Elementor offers a lot of flexibility in terms of design, it can be challenging to create a truly unique website with it since there are only so many elements and options to choose from. Finally, Elementor's customer support isn't as robust as some of the other web design tools on the market, so you may have difficulty getting help if you run into problems while using the platform.

Quick Comparison Between Builder.io and Elementor

There are a few key differences between Builder.io and Elementor that you should know about before deciding on which App or web design tool is right for you. For starters, Builder.io is a much more powerful tool than Elementor when it comes to customizing your App or website.

With Builder, you have complete control over every aspect of your App or site's design, from the overall layout to individual elements like colors, fonts, and images.

Elementor does offer some customization options, but they are limited compared to what Builder.io offers.

Additionally, Builder is far easier to use than Elementor, with a drag-and-drop interface that makes creating complex Apps or websites a breeze.

Finally, Builder offers a free plan that gives you access to all of its features, while Elementor charges a monthly fee for its pro version (which is the only way to get access to most of its features). So, if you're looking for a powerful and easy-to-use web design tool, Builder.io is a clear choice.

If you're looking for an App design tool that's powerful, yet easy to use, then Builder.io is the perfect choice for you. Here's why:

IT Alignment
IT Alignment

Every company turning into a tech company is a term that you've undoubtedly heard more times than you can count. It's no longer so much a novel idea as an ancient adage.

However, within the triteness there is also a truth: The use of technology permeates every aspect of a business. Without automated tools, what would sales and marketing be capable of? Without robotic process automation, what are operations teams? Without UI/UX optimization on product teams?

That also applies to human resources. This group is in charge of hiring, educating, and supporting the continued development of a company's most important resource: its workforce. It's not a simple job, and a growing number of technological instruments are needed to complete it successfully.

This is why the partnership between HR and IT is so crucial. Together, these teams can create an environment where present workers and those who might join them in the future feel appreciated and empowered.

The Role of IT Alignment in HR

How does IT integrate into a business's entire HR management strategy, beyond just providing computers for HR professionals to use for work? We've outlined a few use scenarios to demonstrate how incorporating IT into HR processes can increase efficiency.

Corporate job opportunities draw an average of 250 applicants, per a Glassdoor survey.

While sourcing experts put in a lot of effort to give each candidate a fair evaluation, it may be challenging, especially when you're a one-person team.

software for hiring, please. These tools sort resumes identifying applicants who most closely meet the requirements for the position. If you've ever reviewed resumes as a "gatekeeper," you are aware of how crucial this duty is. Hours could be wasted simply trying to weed out candidates who are manifestly incompetent or who are sending the same generic résumé to every job posting they come across.

Finding candidates for upcoming positions or ones that haven't yet been listed is another task that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) tools help with. They keep the resumes of previous applicants on file and can provide recommendations for whom to get in touch with when the time comes.

A new employee certainly doesn't want to hear any of the following after a difficult hiring process that included interviews, presentations, and technical challenges:

What causes this to happen? Because the new hire's tech requirements are essentially being communicated by the HR department, the new employee's management, and IT. There will inevitably be some miscommunication with all the back and forth. It is crucial for HR and IT to work together during the onboarding process.

The majority of HR departments make every effort to make an employee's first day as smooth as possible.

However, there are so many things that need to be done before or in the first few hours after their birth that it's possible to forget anything crucial. When this procedure is automated, HR only needs to let IT know the team, role, and date of a new recruit. The IT team may then make sure the employee gets the necessary hardware, software, and system access from day one in order for them to succeed. Furthermore, by standardizing hardware, expenses can be predicted and peer tech envy can be reduced.

The management of all the paperwork pertaining to benefits, payroll, and evaluations is one of the least attractive aspects of HR. Many operations and HR professionals still have to filter through a rising quantity of digital data dispersed across various cloud and on-premise locations, despite the fact that fewer and fewer businesses are dealing with physical sheets of paper in file cabinets.

This is risky in addition to being obnoxious. Employee privacy information is exposed through disorganized information management systems. The maintenance of appropriate rights and access is significantly simpler when HR and IT are on the same page about document management.

Employees can update their personal information via self-service systems in addition to going directly to HR or a manager. By setting up these portals, HR employees are relieved of routine duties like updating an employee's address or tax information.

We frequently consider being data-driven in terms of external commercial goals. We analyze measures like cost per acquisition, click-through rates, and conversion rates mostly with the use of digital tools.

HR can benefit from using analytics software that is administered by IT and integrated into internal systems.

Your strategic goals for headcount, growth and corporate culture can be informed by information gathered about the present and potential personnel. Here are a few examples:

-  Recruiting: Following the original job advertisement, how long does it take to hire someone? Which recruiting channels provide the best candidates? The solutions to these queries can assist you in creating a hiring procedure that is more efficient.

Performance management: While the majority of businesses use some sort of performance review, they may not necessarily have the mechanisms in place to act on the data they yield. Using digital technologies and an analytical approach, you may create superior training programs for all of your employees, especially those that require a course correction.

 - Retention of Personnel: One of the most expensive aspects of operating a firm is replacing employees. You can improve worker retention by quantifying average tenure and the reasons why certain employees leave their positions.

Employees at new and small businesses wear multiple hats. To keep the firm running, you must be prepared to accept any task that is asked of you. But eventually, both the business itself and the employees pay a price for this. This is especially valid when there is growth.

Although you might have a worker that has a talent for solving tech problems and changing passwords, is that really the best use of their time? In the startup sector, HR and IT shouldn't involve HR personnel performing technical computer duties. It entails having the technical resources (internally or externally) necessary to achieve company goals around hiring, data privacy, and employee well-being.

Your HR team will value having some IT-related responsibilities relieved as your business expands. Onboarding and offboarding are two places to begin. You can automate the onboarding and offboarding process for new hires when you work with Electric and our proprietary platform.

Standardized processes can be entered into the Electric platform instead of HR or IT hunting down team leaders to determine the tech that an employee needs. While you concentrate on your main business, Electric conducts the labor-intensive work.

Hiring

In the competition to hire the best and the brightest, businesses invest a lot of time and money trying to find and hire the top individuals. However, without a strong hiring strategy and tools, even the best efforts will be futile.

A solid hiring process is one of the most important—yet usually overlooked—elements of managing a successful business. Not having one is a significant red flag for potential prospects.

The right talent assessment tools enable you to accurately evaluate your candidates’ preparedness for a specific position by assessing their hard and soft skills, potential, and knowledge.

Resumes aren’t a good indicator of a candidate's future job performance, as they cannot give you precise insights into someone’s personality, cognitive abilities, behavior, and attitude. They also don't assess whether a candidate would be a good fit for your company culture.

This blog will look into the different talent assessment tools you can use and some of the best options. 

-        Testgorilla for hiring

Managers can use TestGorilla to add lengthy or multiple-choice questions to exams and email invitation links to several candidates. Applications can be sorted by ratings, alphabetical order, most recent activity, or custom answers, and administrators can monitor the status of applications in real time. Users can also analyze test results for candidates, add confidential notes, and create thorough performance reports.

Testgorilla Benefits:

1-     Save time and resources

Getting the time back of your hiring team is the main advantage of employing online candidate assessment tests.

Although online applications make it very simple for people to apply for open positions at your business, the large number of applications can be very taxing for your hiring team.

You may quickly exclude applicants who lack the fundamental abilities, information, or character attributes required for the position by giving candidate assessments as soon as a candidate applies.

2-     Identify qualified candidates

Even if a candidate is totally truthful on their resume regarding their qualifications and experience, it can be challenging to determine whether they are a good fit for the position from a cursory glance at their resume and a few brief conversations.

They might be highly competent, yet their talents might not be appropriate for the position.

3-     Compare qualified candidates

You might have two qualified candidates, for instance, with resumes that look comparable on paper but have totally different personalities. The decision of someone you hire can therefore come down to intuition. Sometimes our instincts are correct, but interviewer bias frequently has an impact on them.

You can identify applicants with the help of additional variables provided by online candidate assessment tests. Once you assess a prospect's job-relevant talents or cognitive abilities, one candidate might stand out above the rest.

4-     Reduce time to hire

You get better candidate response times when you use online candidate evaluation tests.

Assessment tests are a subset of a larger class of recruiting automation tools that help you find top talent more quickly, reply to the best candidates more quickly, and lessen the likelihood that they'll look for other jobs.

5-     Improve the quality of hire

The mentioned factors all contribute to higher hiring quality overall. This translates to better employee performance, lower attrition and retention rates, higher management satisfaction levels, and better company outcomes.

-        HR Avatar

Candidates are evaluated using HR Avatar assessments based on important criteria such as work history, skills, knowledge, simulated job duties, and cognitive aptitude. The examinations are animated, with portions that evaluate actual workplace scenarios, and a moving host that directs the job seekers. Therefore, potential applicants perceive it as a genuine job and like the testing procedure as a whole. The Test Score report includes both numerical numbers and a 5-star rating system.

HR Avatar Benefits:

1-     Detailed Test Results Report

A summary including the overall score, competency scores, and comparative information is included in the PDF report. Competency descriptors score information, and expert interview questions customized for the test-taker are included in the report's details.

2-     Reduce Candidate Complaints and Mitigate Risks

Job simulation-based evaluations are clearly tied to the job, which lessens candidate complaints and the danger of charges that the exams are not appropriate for the position.

3-     Improve Test Fairness and Reliability

Each whole-person test is created for a particular profession and includes various forms of testing in a single test session, including cognitive ability, personality, knowledge/skills, behavior history, and essays that are automatically evaluated (for those jobs that require writing ability.) Employers don't have to be concerned about choosing the incorrect test or losing out on important information as a result.

4-     Whole-Person Approach

Cognitive ability, personality, knowledge/skills, behavioral history, and machine-scored essays are just a few of the various assessment categories used by HR Avatar exams in a single assessment session. This results in a superior overall measurement that is more trustworthy and equitable.

Comparing merely enables you to choose the tool that is best for your business because some elements of hiring tools make them superior to others.

For instance, the TestGorilla tool can support 1000 users whereas the HR avatar can support up to 500 users. Therefore, TestGorilla is better suited for businesses with more users.

On the other hand, the HR avatar can do video interviews but TestGorilla cannot. As a result, the HR avatar can assist you in observing the candidate's response, which is necessary for particular positions.

We highlighted the benefits and for you, and now it's up to you to decide which is best for you.

Technology

If you own a business, you're probably already using a variety of technology tools to run and grow it. However, there are specific ways to utilize cutting-edge technology to boost productivity and customer service.

The following are 8 ways you can make better use of technology to achieve your business goals:

1.  Incorporate Automation

There are numerous tools available that can automate a variety of business-critical tasks. Paying bills, responding to emails, and scheduling employees for shifts are just a few examples. There are even useful automated programs that can help you manage your social media platforms more effectively.

Automation system investments can pay for themselves in a relatively short period of time. Automation reduces human error and waste while also increasing productivity. Even implementing automation for a few simple tasks can save your company a significant amount of time and resources in the long run.

2.  Use Productivity Apps

Calendar apps are a great example of how to use your time efficiently to achieve business goals. Choosing and implementing a good calendar app is critical for almost any business. It can take a long time just to schedule all of your meetings and phone calls. A scheduling tool can help you save time and stay organized.

Fast Company recommends a number of apps to help you organize your time and work more efficiently. Grammarly (for improving your writing) to camera and scheduling apps are all available to help you move your business forward.

3.  Evaluate Your Networks

It is necessary to evaluate your networks for security and efficiency on a regular basis. Security issues and system failures can result in lost data, decreased productivity, and, in extreme cases, the loss of your business.

60% of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyber-attack.

This process is frequently lengthy while requiring adequate preparation. These evaluations must be performed on a regular basis in order to detect and eliminate problems as early as possible. Many businesses may require the services of an off-site IT team to effectively evaluate and maintain their networks.

Security technology can assist in keeping your network secure, preventing the need to deal with cyber threats in the first place.

4.  Invest in the Best Technology

Subpar home computers or outdated phone systems can make it difficult for your employees to perform at the levels you require. You should think about investing in a cloud-based VoIP phone system. You may also want to consider investing in artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, depending on the nature of your business.

It's important to remember that even the best technology won't help you if your employees don't use it correctly. When you invest in new technology, it is critical that your employees receive the appropriate training so that they can make the most of your new investments.

5.  Effectively Manage Passwords

Weak or stolen passwords can pose a significant security risk to your company. To begin creating stronger passwords, avoid using personal information such as birthdays or children's names. Because password-cracking software exists, it's also a good idea to come up with words that aren't in a dictionary.

Finally, avoid using the same password on multiple networks or websites. We understand how hard it is.

That is why you should use password manager technologies to keep your passwords secure. When key employees leave, for example, certain passwords should be changed. Password sharing should also follow strict communication guidelines. They should never be printed, emailed, or distributed to unauthorized people.

For the fourth consecutive year, ‘1234’ and ‘password’ topped the list of leaked passwords.

6.  Take Advantage of CRM

CRM is a system that can help you organize and manage everything from customer contact information to specific marketing strategies. According to Forbes, CRM software can specialize in a variety of areas. Marketing, sales, service operations, and customer data analysis are just a few examples.

There is also collaborative CRM such as Zoho CRM, which allows businesses to share data.

When you have a variety of data in a CRM system that is all linked together, you have the tools to target and bring in new customers. You can also target existing customers more precisely. A CRM platform organizes data such as what services and products your customers buy and how they use them.

7.  Utilize Mobile Technology

It is critical for your employees to be able to perform a variety of tasks both on and off the job. When employees are connected from different locations, using mobile technology can increase productivity. Using mobile technology can also help you reach out to your customers more effectively.

Another way to make the most of mobile technology is to ensure that your company has its own app that customers can use. Before you begin, you must have a clear idea of what you want your app to do. You should concentrate on customer engagement and the types of promotions, sales, or services your company provides.

72% of organizations were already permitting BYOD or planning to do so.

8.    Outsource Your IT

Outsourcing IT is a smart move for most businesses because technology is becoming increasingly complex. Outsourcing immediately frees up time and resources, allowing you to focus on achieving your business objectives. In the long run, you will almost certainly save money. You have the option of investing more money in improving your products or services.

Internet

A failed internet connection can be disastrous for any professional business, exposing it to lost productivity, revenue, and customer complaints. The cost of internet downtime can be exorbitant. A few minutes of downtime due to Wi-Fi or internet connectivity issues can have a significant impact on your company's bottom line.

Because of these potential consequences, you must arm yourself with the necessary skills to troubleshoot and address the issue head-on.

Can't access the internet? If your internet is down, use these network troubleshooting tips to get it back up and running.

All of these steps may seem cliche and pointless to you, but any specialized IT engineer should go through them first in order to get the issue fixed.

Can't connect to the internet?

Here are 9 Troubleshooting Techniques.

1.    Check for Physical Connectivity Issues

A loose or unplugged network cable, modem, or router, for example, can cause an internet connection to fail. If you're connected to a wireless network, your computer's wireless network interface card may be disabled. First, check your Wi-Fi settings by going to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi and then turning Wi-Fi on. Check the settings that turn Wi-Fi on and off on your phone or tablet and make sure it's turned on.

Check the Ethernet cables that connect to your router for wired connections. If you suspect that a cable is a problem, try replacing it or switching ports.

2.    Restart the Router

Restarting the router can occasionally help resolve internet connectivity issues. If your router has been turned off for an extended period of time, a quick restart may be all that is required to get it back up and running.

The hardware and software components of a router or modem are prone to malfunctioning for a variety of reasons. Similarly, your computer should be restarted every now and then to refresh running processes and clear the cache.

Rebooting your router can help, but if you have to do it every day or multiple times a week to resolve connectivity issues, you may need to replace your modem or router. In this case, you may need to contact your local ISP.

3.    Evaluate Software Problems

Your connectivity issues could be caused by strict firewall rules or security policies. Many new-generation antivirus solutions, such as Norton and Malwarebytes, include network intrusion protection, which functions as a software firewall, filtering and blocking malicious traffic.

When two software firewalls, such as Windows Firewall and a private, third-party firewall, are installed on the same computer, the contention between the two can incorrectly block traffic. If you recently installed or upgraded a firewall on your computer, consider temporarily disabling it to see if it's the source of the connection problem.

4.    Check If You’re Outside the Wireless Signal Range

If you're using a Wi-Fi network, you should be aware that the distance between your wireless access point and your device affects connection performance. The further you move away from the Wi-Fi router or a wireless access point, the slower the internet connection becomes, and any further drift results in a complete breakdown. Signal interference in your area can also limit the Wi-Fi connection's effective range.

5.    Check Service Isn’t Being Blocked

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) may decide to block access to your account if you do not pay or violate the provider's Terms of Service. It's easy to forget to keep your subscription updated if you use paid hotspots that charge hourly or daily.

Your ISP may also block your account if you exceed bandwidth limits, download illegal or inappropriate content, or send spam emails. Most internet service providers will notify you by default when you attempt to access a webpage if your account has been suspended; however, it is always a good practice to contact your ISP as soon as possible if you suspect your account has been suspended.

6.    Open Windows Network Diagnostics and Check Your DNS settings

Windows includes a tool called Windows Network Diagnostics that allows users to troubleshoot internet connection issues. Simply navigate to Windows Settings > Network & Internet > Status to get started. Next, navigate to Network Settings and select Network Troubleshooter.

The Windows Network Diagnostics tool will then run a few tests to see what's causing your internet connection problems. If an issue is discovered, Windows will provide you with a list of possible solutions to restore your connection.

Many SoHo (Small office/Home office) routers use themselves as DNS servers by default; however, many cheaper devices are not designed for the CPU stress that the DNS service can apply to the device; therefore, it is best practice to manually replace the primary and secondary DNS servers in your NIC (Network Interface Card) configuration with Google DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

7.    Reboot the Computer

Failures in the operating system software that controls the adapter are common.

This is why it is always a good idea to restart your computer; by doing so, you can clear the cache and ensure that the settings do not revert to previous configurations.

This happens all the time. Sometimes, after making all of the necessary changes, we expect the solution to work, but it does not. The fixes are only applied after the computer has been restarted.

8.    Contact Your Internet Service Provider

If you use satellite internet, you may notice that the connection is less reliable during extreme weather. In densely populated urban areas, internet service providers or cellular internet carriers may be unable to support network traffic peaks, resulting in sporadic outages for some users. If you can't figure out why you can't connect to the internet, your ISP should be able to help.

9.    Reach Out to IT Professionals

Finally, if you've tried everything and your internet connection still won't restore, it's best to contact a professional IT support team to troubleshoot your problem and restore your connection before the downtime has a negative impact on your operations. Although there may be a service fee involved, it is worthwhile at the end given the potential loss of business and man-hours.

Network Security

The internet has literally brought the entire world to your fingertips. However, it also brings with it a number of security risks.

You may be the owner of a thriving business that is breaking records, expanding its customer base, and increasing revenue. All of this, however, will vanish in an instant if you are the victim of a well-executed cyberattack.

As a result, you must take concrete steps to safeguard your data and improve network security threats. Continue reading for a step-by-step breakdown of preventing network security threats.

Step 1: Keep Your Software Up to Date

Malicious threat actors are constantly attempting to exploit some security flaw or bug in corporate networks. It is for this reason that software developers frequently release new updates to their software applications and programs in order to address vulnerabilities.

Unfortunately, the majority of businesses do not apply these free security patches. They continue to use the outdated and unpatched versions because they find it easier to use the software program on an as-needed basis than to take it down for some time and update it.

In some cases, organizations are unaware that they can apply a patch to eliminate vulnerabilities. This is due to owners failing to keep an accurate inventory of the software used on their business network.

In such cases, you should consider conducting a security policy audit and assessment to create a network map, an inventory of all software applications on the network, and whether these programs are up to date with security patches.

This will enable you to address network security concerns proactively and close any vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

Step 2: Identify Your Biggest Network Security Issues

When conducting a network security audit/assessment, you must consider how important each risk factor is to your company. Consider how much money you would lose if your company lost all of its data on a database, or whether you will end up breaking the law if certain data is lost.

Furthermore, this figure should take into account the following:

Reviewing all aspects of various security threats will assist you in developing a structured response. Once you've identified the risks and how much of an impact each one will have on your business, you can begin prioritizing them in order of impact, from most to least, and then work on mitigating them.

Step 3: Apply the Principle of Least Privilege for User Access

Many business owners overlook insider threats. This is their biggest blunder.

According to a Harvard Business Review study, insiders were responsible for 60% of all attacks. Three-quarters of these attacks were malicious in nature.

Isn't that shocking?

Clearly, your own employees are the source of a significant portion of all cybersecurity threats. Your most valuable asset can quickly become one of your most serious network security concerns, whether they intentionally abuse their access privileges or accidentally expose your business to risks.

Using the principle of least privilege for user access limits network access to only the information required to perform their jobs for each individual user account. Logically, no employee in your organization should have unrestricted access to your sensitive assets. Why should an intern have access to the board members' personal information?

This way, even if the access is ever abused, the resulting damage will be kept to a minimum.

Step 4: Create Redundancy Within the Network

A concept known as "single point of failure" is discussed in the business continuity and disaster recovery modules.

The term "single point of failure" refers to how the failure of an asset affects the network, i.e. whether the network can continue to function. Surprisingly, the asset on your network can be anything, including a single database, access point, server, traffic routing device, and so on. A single point of failure is any asset that would compromise the network if it failed.

Redundancy is the solution to single points of failure, which is having multiple additional assets that do the same thing as the first asset so that if the first asset fails, the network can still function.

Your job is then to look for redundancies in your system and add more if necessary.

To do so, you must first draw a network diagram. This will provide you with an overall picture of whether you have enough redundant systems to pick up the slack if any part of your network fails.

When evaluating your business's continuing tea solutions, keep the following in mind:

-         RPOs (Recovery Point Objectives): If you have a data backup system, how recent are the backups? More frequent backups can significantly reduce data loss and associated business disruptions.

-         Solution Reliability: You must conduct frequent testing to ensure that your business continuity solution meets or exceeds its recovery point and time objectives on a consistent basis. After all, discovering that your backup doesn't work after one of your databases explodes isn't ideal.

-         RTOs (Recovery Time Objectives): This will require some experimentation. Determine how long it takes to restore normal network function after deploying a redundant resource. Of course, the duration will differ depending on the asset being replaced and the nature of the destruction, but shorter RTOs are unquestionably preferable.

Having redundancy in place will protect your network from a variety of issues, particularly attacks that target common single points of failure in a network.

You should also have a business continuity plan in place to reduce downtime in the event of a disaster, which will reduce the overall impact of the data breach on your company.

Step 5: Implementing Network Segmentation with Strong Internal Security Layers

Network segmentation is an excellent method for monitoring network security issues and limiting their impact.

This is a "defense-in-depth strategy" that divides a large computer network into smaller subnetworks for those who are unaware. Then, using internal firewalls and other security measures, each of these subnetworks is isolated from the others.

When you isolate each search network, attackers—even those who are already inside the organization—find it more difficult to break out of one system and into the rest of the network.

Cybercriminals will have to work their way through each individual sub-network defense rather than just one set of perimeter defenses. This will not only slow them down but will also make it easier for your IT security team to detect and mitigate a breach before any significant damage is done.

To be clear, implementing strong network segmentation can be time-consuming and difficult. However, given how significantly it can deter future attacks, it is well worth the effort.

Step 6: Train Your Employees in Network Security Best Practices

Your employees should be aware of the growing threat of cyberattacks. You must provide appropriate training and encourage them to participate in awareness programs to make them aware of how significantly they affect the organization's security.

Adequate training for all employees will help reduce threats and hassles for your company, preventing security breaches.

Inform them on advanced methods and how to protect themselves from external threats. You can also teach them the following:

Installing antivirus software such as Trend Micro to detect and prevent malware infections on the network and improve email security is another good strategy.

These programs are intended to detect malicious software and assist in the elimination of problems.
