Dear Friends, August 2019
As Summer 2019 rolls along, we are gearing up for the fall and back to school. I know it’s crazy to think of the summer ending! As we plan our back to school shopping and purchases for back to school, please keep your eye on Security and support. You should always be running a good anti-virus, doing updates and getting a tune-up monthly. If you’re not sure everything is done, please call the office, we will be glad to help decide which services is the best for you. With that in mind it is our pleasure to announce the addition of EDR to our managed services programs. EDR Prevents Ransomware from executing and Recovers your Data from a Ransomware attack should one sneak through. John is so excited about this product.
Since the start of managed services, we have noticed that many of your issues are solved just by the preventative managed service maintenance. Since the labor on our end has been reduced, we thought we would pass the savings on to you, our customers. The new residential plan will be at a reduced rate, the only downside to this is that it is without unlimited in shop labor. You may still buy the regular plan with unlimited in shop labor as well.
This month’s security tip is:
IT Security Tip The #1 threat to your security is…
YOU! And your employees. Like it or not, human beings are our own worst enemies online, inviting hackers, viruses, data breaches, data loss, etc., through the seemingly innocent actions taken every day online. In most cases, this is done without malicious intent – but if you as a manager or owner aren’t monitoring what websites your employees are visiting, what files they’re sending and receiving, and even what they’re posting in company e-mail, you could be opening yourself up to a world of hurt.
That’s because employees’ actions can subject the company they work for to monetary loss, civil lawsuits, data theft and even criminal charges if they involve disclosure of confidential company information, transmission of pornography or exposure to malicious code.
Two things you can do: One, create an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) to outline what employees can and cannot do with work devices, e-mail, data and Internet. That way they know how to play safe. Second, implement ongoing training (like these tips!) to keep security top of mind. We can also run phishing security tests and score your employees. That will truly show if they know how to spot a suspicious e-mail and will make them realize how easy it is to be duped.
If you need help with setting up an AUP or employee training, give us a call at 570-645-2075
This month is by far our most exciting month since I started
S & O Computers!! Our new next generation Anti-Virus software called EDR is released. This software not only protects your PC from the standard everyday viruses and malware, it stops Ransomware in its tracks before it can encrypt your hard drive. Should Ransomware somehow get installed on your PC, EDR will reverse it in minutes which means no more long recovery times or lost data. EDR is by far the BEST product we have ever released, and the most valuable Anti-Virus software I have ever seen.
Thank you for your continued support of S & O Computers
