IT Security, not Sexy… but Necessary

When’s the last time you audited your IT security profile? We know the word ‘audit’ makes us all think of the taxman or worse… but it’s critical to make sure your business is safe and secure. You’re only as strong as your weakest link… and so on. Our team is well-versed in a myriad of IT security issues but two things we’ve noticed pop-up recently…

Ransomware is Alive and Well

In an election year, we’re sure to debate how good the economy is or isn’t… but one business that’s booming is ransomware. Last year saw a record $1.1 Billion exchange hands, returning to the upward trend that included a brief downturn/anomaly in 2022.

As you know, ransomware can easily infect your network – it only takes one click from one individual on your network to take your business to a place where you are running the cost-benefit analysis of paying the ransom. It’s a virus that doesn’t just infect your data- it’s encrypted and your access to the data is taken.

InfinIT can help prevent you from being a victim. This includes both preventive measures as well as comprehensive backups stored at our data center that are isolated from the rest of your network, giving you a clean solution to getting your data back, without paying a ransom.

AI is Not Helping!
