Hi *|FNAME|*,

Welcome to our September newsletter. Yes, things are still weird most of use do not know whether things are getting better or getting worse. It feels like we are all stuck in limbo land.

Personally, I am choosing to ignore the mainstream media constantly reminding me about things I can't control. Instead I'm doubling down on things that I can control that will make the world a better place.

Things like: Working on my business to deliver an even better level of service to our clients, helping our clients work ON their business and helping our team improve their skills - ready for the recovery.

If you'd like to map out a plan for working more ON your business and how to better use technology to be faster, more efficient and more innovative going into the future, then give me a call on 08 8326 4364 and let's chat.

Until then, stay safe,
David Perkovic -

Security Tips

Security is one of the most important areas in the IT. It is also one of the most overlooked areas, but if you loose all your data accidentally or in a hacking attack what would you do and how much money would it cost you?

As such I will be including a specific section in each months newsletter dedicated to security. We will start it off this month with a description of MFA.


MFA or 2FA (Multi Factor Authentication or 2 Factor Authentication) is a must for all online accounts. This is your first line of defence to help hackers gain access to your online accounts. With MFA even if the hackers have access to your username and password they will not be able to get access to your account as a secondary identification method is needed. Check out our blog article on MFA from a couple of years ago for more details.

MFA is a low cost way of adding an extra layer of security to you defences. It is already available in 99% of online accounts and just needs to be turned on and configured. If you need help let me know.

Out and About

Some of our work over the past month includes:

  • continuing our rollout of Cisco routers and switches for a major financial institution. We have done over 60 sites ranging from Victor Harbor to Kapunda and most place in between.
  • our techs attended the August SMBiT Professionals meeting. We networked with other local IT service providers and learnt more about networking, the NBN and Internet fail over policies and procedures.
  • David was interviewed by Scott from BizAdelaide. Check out the interview here on YouTube.

Stop Wasting Your Time Trying To Fix IT Issues

What we can do easily today was literally the stuff of dreams just 10 or 20 years ago.
