Small businesses and not-for-profit organisations in Canberra now have affordable access to all of the sophisticated data security solutions enjoyed by the big end of town.

For years, our banks, government departments and large corporations have implemented costly and complex digital security and data systems, however WOT-LINK CEO Anthony Miller says his business can now offer this essential technology to everyone.

“Somebody should be looking after small businesses and not-for-profits because their data is no less important, but they don’t have the big budgets for a dedicated IT team,” he says.

From software installation to data migration, Anthony says the solution is simple and affordable – it’s called Hyperlink Your Office (HYO).

After 10 years of research and development, he says WOT-LINK can provide the ‘best in class’ IT solutions packaged for small businesses and not-for-profits, as well as the major players.

“Dealing with a whole spectrum of IT issues can be overwhelming and confusing as well as a huge waste of time and money for small business,” says Anthony.

“We appreciate the challenges and frustrations experienced by smaller organisations with increasing complexity, escalating costs, maintaining servers, or buying expensive hardware and software that too quickly needs to be upgraded.

“HYO is the world-class, personalised, low-cost solution to those IT headaches.”

The HYO software bundles offer a range of solutions depending on the size of the business, from charity groups and small sole traders, through to large financial firms and real estate companies requiring the most complex systems.

It’s a one-stop shop, personalised IT management service providing ongoing maintenance and upgrades, secure offsite back-up, and the latest antivirus and threat protection across all devices for a monthly fee.

“We bundle everything so businesses don’t need to worry about IT anymore,” says Anthony.

“All the client needs is an internet connection and we’ll do the rest.”

Anthony says WOT-LINK makes IT ‘hassle free’ and costs about 20 per cent of what clients would normally pay to do it themselves.

Having been a senior executive with Optus for many years, and a former consultant for PwC Australia, he has always had a passion for systems integration and IT.

Anthony says he has seen so much money wasted by small businesses and charity groups during the years and believes “it’s time somebody started looking after them”.

“We’ve taken the security, governance, rigour and processes enjoyed by the banks and government departments and made them available to everyone,” he says.

Anthony explains that during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, when many staff were forced to work remotely, hacking “went out of this world” and that’s when WOT-LINK specialists really stepped up to ensure people were working from home safely, securely and efficiently.

“We developed secure tunnels from people’s home PC so only that person could log on to their work computer, which meant a lot of people didn’t have to burn a lot of cash upgrading their hardware,” he says.

“We found that we were one of the organisations that made sure our clients were protected at a time when we had government agencies being attacked.”

WOT-LINK will soon be launching a new online space where businesses and organisations can sign up for newsletters, free tips and IT advice.

The company has also introduced a way for individuals and corporations to assist charity and not-for-profit groups to access the HYO package, by purchasing a discounted not-for-profit ‘seat’ for $25 per month.

“The charity group ends up with a fully supported IT service at no cost to them,” says Anthony.

“It’s a practical way people can make a difference and contribute to their community.”
