2014 Out with the Old and in with the New

       Let’s talk about software upgrades . . . .

As we celebrate a new year, many people reflect on the past year’s accomplishments or failures. While others set goals for the year with the desire to start anew. Windows has announced that support will end on April 8, 2014 for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003. This is not because they wanted to, it’s based on their support life cycle policy. This deadline also includes companies that developed software for XP.

Windows 7 or Windows 8 are acceptable versions to use. If your business is still using an older version of Windows and you wish to continue obtaining Microsoft patch upgrades or support, start planning and testing immediately. The average deployment can take 18 to 32 months (Time based on Enterprise wide upgrades).  Failure to act on this could expose your business to risks when using the internet. ASK ME WHY!

 

Are you suddenly puzzled, 
confused and asking yourself:
1) Do I have Windows XP or something else?
2) If I do have Windows XP, then how do I get it changed?
3) If I do, then what are the costs associated with the change?
4) What are the risks if I don’t get it changed?
5) What’s the difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8?
Start the New Year off right by ensuring the safety of your business. Mobile IT, Inc. will provide expert advice, answers to your questions and valuable guidance.  ACT NOW!

Hurricane Preparedness

Lose It or Save It – It’s Your Choice

 

Remember all of the HYPE generated with the pending millennium and how all of the HYPE generated was for absolutely nothing. Well it’s hurricane season and that’s definitely a reason to generate the HYPE.  And for good reason – Typhoon Haiyan recently reminded residents of the Philippines how dangerous and damaging strong winds can be. Hurricanes have winds exceeding 74 miles per hour, with rain, thunder and lightning.  Storms of this severity can cause flooding, water damage, power outages, and the list goes on. If you’re not prepared, then you, your business or your family may suffer loss.

  

Every business should have a continuity of operations in place (aka recovery plan) in the event of such unfortunate loss. Your computers, ipads, and servers should be protected. Mandatory annual drills should be required and your equipment serviced to make sure you’re prepared. Even though the Atlantic hurricane season continues through November 30th make sure your data and electronic devices are safe all year round for all types of weather. 

  

Contact Mobile IT, Inc. to explore secure & safety measures for all your electronic devices.  Mobile IT, Inc. has affordable business continuity plans and backup plans for critical data files.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED DISH
Cotton balls, cotton candy, marshmallows and mashed potatoes all are fluffy. Most of these items come in white and resemble the clouds in the sky. So what is this thing called cloud computing?
    Cloud Computing versus    Conventional Computing
Cloud computing provides services to your business through the internet from a remote location. It has gained attention among large corporations, enabling a workplace with anytime & anywhere choices.

NOW SERVING. . .  Mobile Power
What does using cloud technologies mean for your business?  There is one very important commonality among most businesses; no longer having to deal with the issue of maintaining on premise servers but still benefiting from the ever-changing world of technology.
It’s not just for large corporations anymore, small businesses are cashing in on the benefits too.  Businesses are using iPads, tablets even smart phones to replace cash registers, and PCs.  Even receipts can be received by email using cloud apps. Some restaurants have eliminated paper menus altogether enabling customers the fun of viewing menus using smart phones.  It makes ordering food uniquely yours and less tedious and a whole lot more convenient.
Read the hyperlink below and expand your mobile freedom.

Do You Have a Mobile Defense System in Place?

 

If your desktop computers are a security risk then your mobile devices are
at risk too. As the nation’s employers incorporate teleworking (working
offsite) for employees, teleworking  presents a higher security risk.
Many organizations have become concerned with the potential loss of
company or customer data. A loss of any kind can be detrimental to the
operation of a business. Lost and stolen devices are also a major issue.

There are consumer concerns as well when it comes to mobile payments,
shopping and banking. Did you know, your mobile device can be hacked
without your knowledge? A hacker can eavesdrop on your passwords, call
histories, emails, & etc. without you experiencing any changes to
your mobile phone.

Contact Mobile IT , Inc. at 404-814-5255 to learn more about the security risks and ways to prevent them.

Working Mobile is Smart and Increases Productivity!

January 20, 2013 | By

Around 59 percent of knowledge workers said that the use of smartphones and tablets increases their productivity and 27 percent said that working remotely makes work easier, according to a survey conducted by IDC on behalf of Samsung of knowledge workers.

A majority of knowledge workers said that mobility is important for them to do their jobs, with 13.5 percent noting that it is “mission critical,”

More than one-third of workers said that their biggest challenge at work is not having access to necessary information remotely when they need it.

In addition, working in the cloud has become the norm for 45 percent of knowledge workers, and 36 percent would prefer that their company adopt cloud technologies.

A surprising 22 percent of knowledge workers said that the IT tools at work were worse than those they had at home, 49 percent said that IT tools at work were “okay,” while only 20 percent thought their IT tools at work were “awesome.”

A disturbing 65 percent of knowledge workers said that their company does not have a BYOD policy, with only 22 percent responding that they do have a BYOD policy at work.

This supports other surveys conducted about BYOD policies. According to a survey conducted by IDC on behalf of Samsung, less than one-third of companies had BYOD policies in place.

Not having a BYOD policy in place opens up enterprises to a “security nightmare,”Harry Sverdlove, chief technology officer at security firm Bit9. In a recent blog, Sverdlove said that companies without BYOD policies risk losing control over business data and being the target of attacks that steal data.

Companies that do not have BYOD policies in place are increasing the risks to their data and networks from employees bringing their mobile devices to work, with or without the permission of the IT department.
