Microsoft confirm summer release of Windows 10

Microsoft have said development is ahead of schedule of the much anticipated Windows 10 operating system which will run on a range of devices including desktops, laptops, smartphone, tablets and Xbox consoles.

The completely re-designed operating system will improve on Windows 8’s attempt at a unified platform and will see a customisable Start Menu and new streamlined browser Spartan.

Expect to see Windows 10 devices for sale around June time.

 

Why do I need an SSL certificate or multi-factor authentication?

The IT industry has been product driven for years moving so quickly that sometimes security comes as an afterthought.  Mobile and Cloud  technologies have been developed so quickly that the risks posed in deploying such solutions haven’t always been considered.

Protect this data using a secure certificate so the information passed between the 2 endpoints is encrypted. Your data is more valuable than the hardware it runs on so prevent it from being stolen. If you’re still using older remote / VPN technologies the risk is greater so it is even more vital that you implement more secured company standards.

For customers wishing to protect their website we offer a range of domain SSLs to get you covered. SSL Certificates are an essential way of keeping your information safe and also offer your customers confidence. And to add to that, Google have recently announced they offer a boost in rankings to those sites that are SSL protected!!

Multi-factor authentication is a system that is used which when enabled requires more than just a password  to gain access to a service or device and we need this because we are human. Because we are human we leave passwords on post it notes on computer monitors, we use the same passwords for everything & and we have a tendency to use passwords such as “password1”.  A 2 factor of authentication usually in the form of an APP on a phone, a text message service, or an RSA / YUBI key will prevent hackers from gaining access to your sites & services. Yes they may guess your password but they will need the 2nd factor of authentication to break the encryption. This part is so secure it is adopted by the banking industry. Why risk it? SSL is just part of the answer. A successful security solution will combine both SSL & multi-factor authentication.
