Hi *|FNAME|*,

I can't believe it is June already and nearly the end of another financial year.

There are still a lot of security issues happening out their with phishing attempts and malware being the main culprits. So be careful and arrange for training for both your self and staff before it is too late! Let me know and I can arrange some training.

As I have mentioned before Windows 7 is going EOL (End of Life) in January next year (see below). With June now upon us it is a good time to upgrade to Windows 10 machines now so you can claim the equipment in this financial year. Contact me to find out what you options are.

Out and About in May

During May we traveled far and wide with Stefan doing some work in Clare and Dave F installing some new servers in McLaren Vale (yes we don't always push clients to the cloud as we work with them and can install the best systems for their needs). We also worked with a couple of new clients to move their email and file hosting to the cloud.

Is Your Business Vulnerable in 2020?

Did you know that the life of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and MS Office 2010 will be ending soon? These operating systems and Office suites were released a long time ago but are still widely used today. As with all good things, they must come to an end and Microsoft is pulling the plug on its aging software on January 14th, 2020.

We have developed some resources to help you understand what is happening and how your business can stay safe in 2020.
