Are you taking the necessary steps to protect your organisations?

While modern technology offers amazing gains in productivity, you also need to make sure your organisation is protected from increasing security threats. Your organisational data is valuable and needs to be protected. Data breaches are a fact of life, and the costs continue to rise:

  • 4.2 Billion customer records compromised
  • 99 days from breach to detection
  • 17 million is the average cost of a security breach 

Information loss is now the most expensive consequence of cyber-crime.


Wouldn’t you feel more confident knowing your business assets are protected and secure?

Is cloud a leap of faith or stepping stone to success?

Why moving to the cloud can transform your business to a modern one

In recent posts, we’ve explored cloud and mobility and how they are transforming the business world in which we live and work in every day.

by Guido Marchetti, cloud solutions specialist, MJ Flood Technology

Following the end of the world’s largest BETA testing program, Microsoft has announced that as of 29th July, 2015 Windows 10 will be available.

Microsoft are actually giving away their latest and greatest operating system for free with no hidden costs into the future.

This is part of the ‘new look’ Microsoft and believe me when I say there is no reason that you shouldn’t take them up on their offer.

Are you all at sea when it comes to Windows Server 2003?

by Guido Marchetti, cloud solutions specialist, MJ Flood Technology

Here we are again. Yet another large, software platform is being retired. On 14th July, or Bastille Day as it’s known to our Gallic brethren, Microsoft will cease its in-life support services for Windows Server 2003. This means it will no longer develop patches, security updates/fixes or any updates for the platform.   So if you haven’t updated by this deadline, your business will be using unsupported software.

So what about those of us who choose to blissfully ignore this impending date or for legacy reasons just can’t move?
