Security and Passwords

 

Within the past week we had 3 different clients have their online accounts hacked. In one situation, they cracked the password to a yahoo email account, sent urgent requests for help to everyone in the contact database then deleted the contact list so the owner couldn’t send out a follow-up. The hackers had access to every email in the account, including password information for other accounts. Hours were then spent in changing every password they used online.

 

In each situation the password was not complex and used on many different online accounts. We have all heard the need for complex passwords, but who can remember them all?

How to use a cloud drive as a file server

 

Request:  We are a small company, but have people working from home or branch offices in 6 different locations and we travel with our laptops, too.  It would be great to have a place for shared files rather than emailing everything back and forth, but it needs to be easy.

 

Solution: If we were at an office with a server, the solution would be to share a folder on the server, setting read and write permissions as applicable for the folder, and then mapping each computer to that folder using a drive letter (e.g., the S: drive).  Anything you put in the S: drive is available to everyone with permission.

What do I need to run Windows 8?

 

Windows 8 is out and there's been a bunch of news and reviews. As with most all technical products there are a ton of different opinions on whether it's any good or not. Windows 8 does bring some big changes and will appeal to offices looking to upgrade. However, if you are planning to upgrade from an older OS, it's a good idea to ensure your computers can handle it.

 

Here are three things you should focus on to ensure your system is Windows 8 ready.

 

Processor The minimum processor speed for Windows 8 is 1GHz. What this means is that almost every system from the past decade should be able to run it. Many modern smartphones actually meet the minimum requirement, so most computers should be able to run it easily as well. Of course, if you have a processor that's around 1 GHz, you will notice that the OS isn't as zippy compared to systems with the latest and greatest, but it should be able to handle everyday tasks.

NetManage

Stop waiting for your technology to break

When something goes wrong with your IT, everything grinds to a halt. With a standard break/fix service contract, you have to wait for something to break before your provider can fix it. That equation seems to make sense – even though it could easily result in hours of downtime. But what if you could keep your IT from breaking in the first place?

With NetManage services from INFO-TEK, you can expect:

·         Peace of mind – your systems are monitored 24/7

·         Less downtime – we identify and fix issues before they cause problems

·         Fewer disruptions –we provide most services remotely or overnight

·         Predictable budgeting – all-inclusive, all-you-can-use, flat-rate IT services that include hardware and software.
