Mobile Device Cyber-Security

Posted by Mark Nash on Mar 18, 2022 9:00:00 AM

The convenience and efficiencies that the rise of mobile devices has brought about are indisputable. However, despite the increase in mobile device reliance, their security has not kept the same pace of improvement. Contrary to what many people think, mobile devices are just as susceptible to malware as any other computer or smart device connected to a network. Many of the same cyber-security practices that you should use for computers are the same practices that you should use for your mobile devices.


The first tip is the most obvious one, enable authentication on your device. Every device, mobile or not, that you keep private or sensitive data on should be protected with some form of authentication to restrict access to only those who are approved. This is usually a password or PIN that must be entered to get past the lock screen, but some devices allow for methods such as facial or fingerprint scans.

Voice as an Application: Why is it time to think VoIP?

Posted by Griffin Ball on Oct 3, 2017 4:13:00 PM

What if your email only worked on a special computer? Or even only in your office?

Something amazing happens when communication becomes an application. It is no longer hindered by traditional constructs, instead it becomes a tool that enables your staff to encounter your clients anywhere. It is a single point that allows them to reach you wherever you are and lets you deliver a unique customer experience.

However, email is quickly becoming impersonal and customers are seeking more than just perfectly worded text or automated email responses. They're looking for someone on the other end.

Why is a VoIP phone better than traditional Analog phone systems?

Posted by Keith Davis on Sep 7, 2017 9:00:00 AM

The difference:

IP phones are great, especially as business phones! They offer much more than the traditional way most businesses use, analog. VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems are better because they only require one connection point or network to operate on. With analog, you need several cables and a network (in addition to the IP network) for data. An IP phone can be moved all around the home or office and they will still pick up the configuration data. IP phones also retain any extensions as soon as they are installed while analog phones will only carry one extension and are not retained.
