Security, Security, and More Security

Security, Security, and More Security

By | News

With all the cyberthreats and attacks in 2017, your business is more vulnerable than ever before.

We saw the Wi-Fi KRACK attack threaten every device using Wi-Fi in the world, putting business and personal data at risk of theft and corruption.

We also saw Petya and Shark (later named Atom), notable ransomware threats circulating the internet encrypting computers around the world, forcing people to pay ransom to get their data back.

Those are just two of many threats to your cybersecurity in 2017, with more to come in 2018.

If your network isn’t protected by the latest security technologies, you’re leaving your business wide open for attack. Eliminate the risk with scalable, turnkey managed security and unified threat management (UTM) services.

A Note on the Wi-Fi KRACK Attack

A Note on the Wi-Fi KRACK Attack

By | News

As you may have heard, a serious weakness in the WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access) protocol has been found, allowing cyberattackers to intercept passwords, emails, and data on devices or access points within close range.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the technology specifics:

This is an extremely dangerous weakness and affects almost every Wi-Fi device in the world. Your personal and business devices are at risk.

This is an extremely serious issue that can drastically affect your privacy and personal information.

Usernames and passwords, banking information, and other private credentials can be obtained easier than expected.

Whether you are an IntelliSyn client or not, I strongly urge you to contact IntelliSyn today to keep your personal and business Wi-Fi devices safe.

IntelliSyn has been reminiscing on the last 20 years of business and the technology milestones along the way.

Take a look at the full timeline of all the major technology evolutions parallel to IntelliSyn’s achievements and growth throughout the past 20 years.

IntelliSyn Survey Raises $250 for CHEO!

By | News

In early June, IntelliSyn launched a survey about the IT industry and IntelliSyn’s role in it. With each completed survey, IntelliSyn promised to donate $5.00 to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Our survey process is complete and we received a great response, which has allowed us to make a donation of $250.00 to CHEO.

The survey asked participants to answer 10 simple questions, with the answers giving IntelliSyn insight into how the market views the IT industry.

One of the questions addressed the recent launch of IntelliShare, a customizable, managed enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) for secure access to business data from anywhere.

Participants who completed the survey were entered into a draw to win one of five $100.00 Amazon or Apple gift cards. The five winners were announced on June 6, 2017.

IntelliSyn would like to thank all of the participants who completed the survey. Your feedback is greatly valued.
