Case Study: RMD Photography

Richard approached us with a requirement for a website to showcase his wedding photography. Being a photographer, attention to detail is crucial to Richard and we worked closely with him to create a bespoke website that  looks sleek enough to carry his beautiful images.

Another of Richards requirements was to enable his clients to view and purchase individual images through his website. GetOnIt has provided Richard with the facility to upload his portfolios and allow purchases through a bespoke content management system. This is a smart move at a time when there is a consumer expectation of being able to carry out transactions through online services. Online sales in particular have grown immensely in popularity and as a business it’s key to keep up with market trends. How much can your website do?

Free Internet Security is leaving you vulnerable – IT Support Bournemouth

Free Internet Security is leaving you vulnerable

Day in, day out we are all receiving emails that we have all learnt to recognise as containing computer viruses.  But what about the viruses that are not so obvious?  The viruses that are hidden/disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files?  Or even the viruses hidden within instant messages or downloads off the internet?

Are you protecting yourself and your business enough?

picA ridiculous number of new malware items are being unleashed by cyber-criminals every day and with businesses and their staff relying heavily on their computers and internet based programs, we feel that free internet security no longer offers a sufficient level of protection.

You need to ensure that you have a security solution that constantly keeps up to date with new threats, giving you maximum protection to ensure you (and your data) are always safe.

In our experience not only are the free internet security problems letting viruses slip through, there are also slowing the computer user’s general efficiency, by slowing their PC’s performance down.

Time to step it up to the next level of internet security and get proactive against cyber-attacks?  We think so.

Both companies and individuals need to get proactive and smart.  You need to protect yourself with a firewall that will defend you against both computer based threats and threats that are delivered via the local network or Wi-Fi.  Our product is constantly updating itself so that you always has the latest version and, most importantly, the latest database of known threats.

Our antivirus package prevents phishing, spam and malware. Instant messages are analyzed for threats and parental control features are strong. Although the product protects against keyloggers, users can even choose to bypass the physical keyboard altogether and use a virtual keyboard whenever it is necessary to enter sensitive personal data.

Protect your business from the worst

backup

Don’t just store your essential business information – Protect it!

 

You may think you have it covered with an ‘in house’ back up system, but how sufficient is it? Does it cover Outlook? All those essential emails… and how about the calendar? If the worst was to happen and you lost everything, how much work would it take to get back up and running? All those future appointments and re-occurring calendar entries, crucial email conversations!


Case Study:  Last week we had a client asking for urgent help – what they really needed was a magic wand. They had a corrupted hard disc and needed us to recover vital business information from their computer. They thought their ‘in-house’ back up system was sufficient, and it wasn’t. They lost all their Outlook data and, whilst we pride ourselves on getting our clients out of particularly sticky situations this was one step too far.  (Incidentally, even if their backup was setup to back their Outlook it was not taken offsite every night and therefore would be lost in a fire or major theft as well as all their other files and data.)

 

Unfortunately for this particular client they used Outlook for everything. From renewals to on going charges for every customer. They were back to square one!

 

Suffice to say they walked away with a tough lesson learned and a GetOnIT back up package to ensure he never has to face the same situation again.

 


Our unlimited off-site back up solution provides a secure archive of your most importation data, up to 30 versions old. The ultimate damage limitation package – peace of mind that your business is better protected.

Contact us if you have any backup or data concerns and we will ‘GetOnIT’ check what you have already (if anything) and help get your data better protected.

Windows 10 Free Upgrade

windows10 Grab it while you can- and get your staff to do the same!

Windows 10 is coming soon, and you might be able to grab this newest version as an upgrade for FREE.

Why would you want to?

Here are just a few of the features that we think make it worth while upgrading:

  • Easy – Windows 10 is a really familiar and easy to use platform. They’ve combined the best bits of Windows 7 and 8, so the Start Menu is back! Plus Microsoft will transfer all your pinned apps and favourites over for you, making it a quick and easy transition.

  • Fast and Safe – It starts up and resumes fast, has more built-in security to help keep you safe, and is designed to work with software and hardware you already have.

  • Improved Web browser – Windows 10 comes with Microsoft Edge, an all-new browser. Features include; being able to write or type notes directly on webpages and share them, getting instant access to key actions—like making reservations or reading reviews—without leaving the page you’re on and much more.

Most importantly though, we feel, is the fact that you can reserve it for free, with no obligation to upgrade it when the time comes. We would say that it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it!

 

How do you get it?

 

Have you or your staff noticed the little icon on the bottom right of your screen?

window-10-upgradeAll you need to do is to RIGHT CLICK on the little icon on the bottom right of your screen and click REGISTER. It will take less than 3 seconds, there is nothing to fill out, and there is no obligation to follow through with the upgrade once it becomes available.

However, there is a time limit on this offer so don’t miss out – and make sure your staff don’t either!
