Over the weekend, the world experienced one of the most severe ransomware outbreaks in history, with businesses of all sizes in over 150 countries impacted. As ransomware becomes a household name, one thing is for certain: Global cybersecurity has reached a moment of emergency (even forcing Microsoft to release patches for long since abandoned operating systems, such as Windows XP and Microsoft Server 2003).

Is YOUR business ready? Here are critical questions to ask:

Do you have backup and disaster recovery system in place?
Geek Easy Computers business continuity clients data can survive ransomware, natural disaster, and hardware failure.

Is all of your software up-to-date?
Geek Easy Computers managed clients rely on us to vet, distribute, and maintain patches, updates, and software deployments.

How’s your antivirus?
Geek Easy Computers managed antivirus service lets us handle antivirus updates, on demand and scheduling scanning, and behind the scenes remediation 24/7/365, without worrying about renewals or monitoring on your end. Currently based on BitDefender, this service was first to announce “zero-day” protection against the spread of this news generating latest ransomware.

Are your Microsoft products patched?
Let’s face it - Microsoft has a fairly hit or miss track record with patching, but it’s a necessary evil in today's world. We can take the frustration out of keeping your systems up to date, and limiting the amount of critical process issues caused by failed/bad patches.

This is the future of computing, beginning with ransomware attacks in 2017. We can get your business ready for what’s to come. Call us and schedule a meeting with one of our technology experts to find out how to best protect your important data.

Mobile Devices

While we don't repair phones, tablets or other portable devices, we do often get asked what to do when one is being slow or having software errors.

Here are the 3 steps you should take when dealing with slow, glitchy gadgets.

Reboot - The first step should always be turning it off and on again. This can help with a number of issues if the device has been powered on for a while or an app is having memory issues. 

Reset - If the problems persist after a reboot, the best bet is to back up any pictures or documents not saved anywhere else and reset the device to factory defaults. This will rule out settings and apps as the cause of the problem.

Replace - If the device is still having problems, the hardware is likely going bad. If it's older than a year or two, replace it. If it was less than $300, you'll probably still want to replace it. Otherwise there are mobile specialist shops that may be able to repair the device. Recommend calling in advance.

Are you a "cord cutter"? Have you abandoned cable for streaming content on the Internet? There's so many diverse options now (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube, Pluto TV, Google, etc.) that going cable free is a real choice for many! What is your favorite streaming service? Do you stream mostly movies or TV shows?
