Cybersecurity Alert

Cybersecurity Alert

Recent geopolitical events have heightened the risk of cyberattacks against U.S. interests.

This is a good opportunity to reiterate the important things you can do to protect your systems and your data.

  • Ensure that you have solid malware and antivirus protection.
  • Maintain and enforce a robust password complexity policy.
  • Avoid opening suspicious emails, and always exercise great caution when clicking on embedded links and/or email attachments.  If you don’t know the sender, don’t click.  For our Hosted Exchange clients, please talk to us about how we can enhance the protections by implement scanning technology on all links and attachments.
  • Install any security updates/patches on all software, important note, if you are still operating Windows 7, Microsoft no longer supports that product and no longer issues security updates—this is a security vulnerability.

We take very seriously the stewardship of your data under our control in Hosted Exchange and ShareSync environments and to that end we work daily with our engineers to ensure that intrusions are prevented, and warded off.

If you are a managed services client, your servers are monitored 24/7 and critical system updates and patches are timely implemented to protect your data assets.   Workstations are monitored five days a week, eight hours a day.

Cybersecurity is the responsibility of everyone in your organization.  As we have seen in recent years in companies large and small, there are no impenetrable systems anywhere in the world, but we all need to do our part to zealously guard our systems and employ common-sense safeguards at the user and company level.

We’re here to help and answer your questions.
