You’re hard at work on your computer or device and a message suddenly pops up saying, “a software update is available”. You’re busy, so you click “cancel” instead of “install”, thinking you’ll get to it later, but you never do. Sound familiar?
The truth is it’s easy to skip software updates because they can take up a few minutes of our time, and may not seem that important. But this is a mistake that keeps the door open for hackers to access your private information, putting you at risk for identity theft, loss of money, credit, and more.
Here Are Some Tips To Help You Stay In Control of Your Domain.
We see it far too often. We begin working with a client and need to access their domain name, and the fun begins. The domain is registered with one service provider, the primary name server (what routes all internet, web, email traffic on the internet) points to another provider and the website and/or email are hosted somewhere else. And the worst part is, the client has no idea how or where anything is registered, no account credentials, etc.
Your domain name is extremely valuable and businesses should take management of their domains seriously. This means understanding, or at least having an idea, of how their domain is setup, but most importantly, have any and all credentials on file to access their domain and any related services such as email and website.

One of the most common questions we get asked is “What is a good computer to buy?” That is a loaded question and varies greatly depending on what the computer will be used for.

We have created a guide that will help you choose the right type of computer for your business.
Mobile technology has come a long way in a relatively short space of time. In less than 30 years we’ve moved away from big, brick-like cellular phones and a nascent internet to a world of super-slim and powerful smartphones, tablets and convertible laptops that are able to transmit and store data, as well as hook up the internet, with a simple tap.
While these devices offer us increased internet connectivity and day-to-day convenience, they also carry considerable security risks. In this feature we take a look the reasons behind the growing threat of mobile-related cyber-crime.
