Updates and Security

Everyone knows that keeping your computer and anti-virus up to date is important.

What most people miss is that with Microsoft and Windows their products only get updated once a month. With the ever-changing nature of the internet and the endless wave of threats; hacking, malware and ransomware. We recommend using third party anti-virus software to keep your information as safe as possible. There are many options available to you and we would love to discuss these options with you.  BRP-IT recommends using Spybot™ ; this program provides updates once a week for the free version, and multiple updates a day for the paid version!

BRP-it! Do you know what it is & why it’s important?

Information Technology (IT) is more than just computers and networks! We found this awesome article on LifeWire written by Bradley Mitchell and wanted to share some important points regarding IT and your business.

Information Technology encompasses all layers of all systems from computer hardware to databases and servers including internet and phones. Many businesses and corporations add an IT department which is responsible for:

-Computer tech support
-Network Admin
-Databases and software

-Security of all data and networksAccording to Mitchell, System and Network Security issues are a primary concern for many businesses because this has the potential to cause a security hack and not only damage a company’s reputation, but cost large sums of money to fix. With the advancements in technology, it is important to always ensure that your data and client’s information is secure. Using a trusted professional is a great way to make sure your network protection is secure and up to date.
