You may think that because you have a password on your laptop, your data is safe.
This is wrong!Anyone can use a USB stick (with free, openly available software on it) to get all your files, data and even email, without having to know your password.
If you leave your laptop on the bus or it's stolen from your car, any data on it can be accessed. Not only could this be damaging to your business, but it also has serious GDPR consequences.
The only way to make a laptop or PC secure is encryption. Encryption scrambles your data to make it unreadable. Unless you have the key to unscramble it, the data is unusable
Modern operating systems have encryption features built in. Not only can this be used to protect your laptop or PC it can also encrypt USB sticks and servers. Not only is this good security practice but it also gives you the peace of mind that if something unfortunate should happen, any data will be unreadable.

Two out of our top 10 customers are currently using on premise Exchange server 2010 for their email. One has about 50 employees whilst the other 100. Exchange 2010 is hitting end of life in January 2020. Microsoft will stop supporting it making it unsafe to use after that date.
There are two realistic migration options for Exchange server 2010: either replace the server or move your email to the cloud. For businesses of this size, it doesn’t make sense to have an on-premise email server. Working with our customer we devised a plan and have started a migration to Office 365.
Office 365 isn’t just cloud email it can also help make a business's entire IT better. It allows your employees to work anywhere and collaborate easily whilst providing you with the latest software and security. The subscription based model means it can easily scale with your business.
If you would like to talk about how we can help your business migrate from Exchange server 2010 - please get in touch.
