Dark web security concerns

When your data is on the dark web You have to act fast when your data is on the dark web. I.e., the part of the Web that is not indexed by web search engines. We all read constantly about changing your passwords, to make them secure. But, can you act fast enough when...

G Suite vs. Office 365

I have implemented both G Suite & Office 365 for many different clients over the years.

For reasons that are not obvious to end-users, I prefer G Suite over Office 365. In my experience, clients often choose Microsoft without giving due consideration to Google.

If you are about to decide between G Suite & Office 365, engage your IT Support provider. This decision is too important to leave to them to figure out on their own.

Not only do I handle the transition to G Suite (for my clients), I also continue to support everything that I install.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular website builder in the world, but it is not your only option.

Wix is a drag and drop builder, if you want to build your own website without hiring a website designer. But, WordPress also lets you create a website without learning to code.

The biggest drawbacks of using a website builder like Wix is that your website will not be portable. In contrast, with WordPress you can decide at any point to move your website to another web host.

Your website is your your intellectual property. Ensure that you remain the rightful owner of your domain and your website. Keep it portable!

Rather than build your own WordPress website, why not leave that to me? I have done it many times and I follow best security practices.

Free PC Malware Protection

On Windows PCs, I recommend using Bitdefender’s FREE Antivirus app.

It has a small footprint that won’t slow down your computer as it makes the Internet safe for you. It does this by using machine learning. Its real-time protection offers anti-malware and anti-phishing. And, it has a near-perfect malware detection rate. Its advanced technologies protect you from all types of fraudulent content.

MacOS Malware Protection

On Macs, I recommend using Bitdefender’s PAID Antivirus app.

According to Malwarebytes’ 2020 State of Malware Report, the virtual landslide of adware and PUP detections on Macs, is now far outpacing growth on the Windows side. The days of thinking your Apple product is safe from malware, and that only people using Windows machines have to take precautions, are over.

Why pay for Bitdefender rather than installing a free alternative? Because most other antivirus solutions impose an unacceptable hit on the performance of Macs.

Why Choose Me?

Open-Minded Support

In 2015, I switched a MacBook. I did so even though I resolve Windows issues more often than I need to work on Macs. This has allowed me to be as productive as I could be.

Google G Suite

In 2009, I converted my first Small Business Server to Google Apps. I have been transitioning small businesses to G Suite ever since. Google Docs helps them stay organized and focused.
