Integrated IT Solutions partners with Conduit Systems

We are pleased to announce that we have recently partnered with Conduit Systems, Inc. a managed IT outsourcing provider to the small and medium-sized business community.

In 1989, Conduit Systems President, David Cameron and Executive Vice President, Dan Tully, combined their expertise in sales, marketing, consulting and business management to form CambridgeCAD Technologies. Responding to changing industry trends, they transformed into Conduit Systems, Inc. in 1998 in order to better provide accessible and streamlined IT support to the SMB market. Cameron and Tully will remain with Integrated IT Solutions to oversee the integration of Conduit and IITS.

Please join us in welcoming our newest engineers Dave Burgess, Antonio Vargas, Dean Ganz, Michael Surtees, Mike Baronian and Roger Lausier to our team. With their extensive knowledge and expertise, these gentlemen will be a great addition to our support and solutions groups and we are excited to introduce you to them!

Cyber safety tips for the holiday season

It's holiday shopping season and the National Cyber Security Alliance has just published some helpful tips for staying cyber secure this year.

Their advice includes avoiding reading and clicking emails that offer deals that look too good to be true, using the two-step verification process when accessing sensitive data and always making sure your anti virus software is up-to-date. Public WiFi hotspots are not secure, so make sure you use private WiFi when shopping. It's also very important to have complicated passwords and make sure they are different for all of your accounts.

They have created an informative website to help you navigate staying safe online, both personally and for your business.

Please visit staysafeonline.org for more information as well as other tips on how to better protect yourself, your employees and your devices this holiday season. Remember to change your passwords frequently!

One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say thank you and to wish you the very best at this special time of year.

Here's to a safe and prosperous 2015!!

Cryptowall update

It's not too late to sign up for the security implementation we have put in place to help reduce the risk of infection from the Cryptowall ransomware threat. We have been rolling it out to clients every day and it has been going smoothly thus far. For those who have opted in, our Managed Services team will reach out to schedule a mutually agreed upon time.

For those who haven't opted in yet, we are strongly recommending you consider having us implement it. While it's not guaranteed to fix future variations of this threat, it will help to prevent the current ones - and we estimate that all clients who do not take these precautions will become infected by this ransomware, it's just a matter of time.
