It wants its office phones back. If yours are 5 years old or more, it’s time to change them.

Why?

  • I’ll hazard a guess that your mobile phone was released in the last two or three years
  • And your tablet is probably the same kind of age
  • And it’s likely you’ve upgraded your laptop in the last three years too

So why haven’t you switched your office phones to a new, cost-effective, better quality, more flexible VoIP system?

We’ve created a new short video to explain the benefits for your business.

Your business is a prime target

Your business is a prime target

We don’t want to scare you, but do you know that your business is on the hit list for the fastest growing internet crime?

Ransomware is becoming increasingly more popular amongst cyber criminals. And is used to extort money from organisations by taking something they hold dear: their data.

All businesses are being targeted, all the time.

If you don’t protect your business from this type of attack, you could find yourself losing data, money, and ultimately customers.

But where do you start?

Don’t worry. We’ve put together a brand new comprehensive guide detailing ransomware and the steps you can take to keep your business as safe as possible.

It also contains the one piece of advice to ensure that you NEVER lose any precious data thanks to a ransomware attack.

Don’t hit ‘Later’ again

Don’t hit ‘Later’ again

We’re all guilty of doing it.

Whether you’re in the middle of an important piece of work, or just checking Facebook, when that notification appears to let you know there’s a software update available, it’s so tempting to just click ‘Later’.

And then forget to run the update when you’ve finished what you’re doing.

Especially if you’re working in the office one day and at home the next. It’s even easier to promise yourself you’ll install the updates when you’re in less of a hurry.

But it’s so important.

At the moment, we’re all more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Cyber criminals are taking advantage of how things are.

And there’s more to be aware of. Doing your updates means your devices will be:

  • Protected from the latest threats
  • Running the latest versions of your software
  • Generally in better health

Can you really face dealing with a data breach on top of everything else right now?

Nope.

Run the updates!

Reconnecting…

Reconnecting…

It’s frustrating isn’t it?

You’re in the middle of a great video meeting, full of ideas, solutions and plans for the future, and then…

A poor internet connection has been a pain for many people while they’ve been working from home.

What do we really expect? There are more people video calling, working online, streaming music, films and TV in their homes. All at the same time.

Things were never going to be working at optimum levels.

But it doesn’t help your productivity.

So what do you do if your team’s home connection isn’t what it should be? Especially for those who will be working from home as a more permanent option.

First, check what services are available in their location, and what the coverage of available providers is like. Are they with the best provider already, or would a move be beneficial?

Could your business subsidise their move to a faster internet service?

Next, look at their routers. Is there a better one available for the kind of work your business does?  Consider whether a range extender would solve any issues too.

It’s not always straightforward, but giving your people the right tools for the job is vital, right?

If you need any help or advice on upload and download speeds, providers, or any of this internet connectivity stuff, you know where we are.

“What I do have are a very particular set of skills…”

“What I do have are a very particular set of skills…”

We’ve all heard the quote (it’s from the excellent Liam Neeson film ‘Taken’), but have you ever been held to ransom?

While it’s very unlikely that you’ve ever received an anonymous call or letter demanding thousands in return for something you hold close… it’s not out of the question that your business won’t be attacked by ransomware.

What is ransomware?

Think malware – malicious software that damages your computer. But rather than all of your files being deleted, they’re taken away from you and you’re promised their return… only when you pay a fee.

Sound scary? It’s terrifying.

We’ve created a short video to show you how to avoid ransomware, including 3 ways to protect your business.
