Threat Trends for MSPs to Watch

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Hi,

Can you please suggest the best and cost effective Enterprise Cloud Storage/Sharing against Dropbox, box.com, and egnyte.com
We are evaluating it for our new project.

Hi, some time ago I have cloned and installed this project github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible on the VMs where SELinux was disabled
And now I can see this doc openshift.org , where they say: Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) must be enabled on all of the servers before installing OpenShift Origin or the installer will fail.
So my question is how does Openshift play with SELinux? What is the algorithm of this play?

Hi there. As the [sole] IT person for a <25 user small business, I am looking for advice on whether to dive into an Office 365 premium subscription, complete with cloud access to office as well as exchange, OR to do office apps only and keep our email domain hosted with a 3rd party.

I feel like our current vendor is going to deliver us news that we must change up our service due to Microsoft's "unplugging" the current shared exchange service (this I heard from a sales person).

We currently pay 12/month per user including complete admin support and management of exchange as well as an anti-spam solution (Symantec).

Microsoft says office 365 premium (incl. Exchange) costs 12.50/per month for 1 yr/user.

I feel like the Office 365 Premium subscription offer doesn't include the same level of administrative support as either 3rd party email host.

I feel like our current vendor is going to soon-deliver us news that we must change up our service due to Microsoft's "unplugging" the current shared exchange service (this I heard from a sales person).

Add to this Comcast business offering office 365 solution for $14.95/month per user.

I would appreciate a few inputs so I might make an informed decision for our company.   Many thanks for your consideration!  :)

Environment:
-Exchange 2010 with all services on Windows Server 2012 Datacenter (not R2)
-Barracuda cloud email filter

Issue:
Outbound/inbound emails seem to have about a 5 minute delay.
The outbound messages seem to be sitting in the Queue just waiting.
I spoke to Barracuda support and they said I needed to give them some logs.
I'm not sure what logs and they weren't being helpful in suggesting where I should look. You know, just some general logs, I guess.

If the emails are sitting in the queue waiting to be sent to Barracuda, there's not much else I can do to change that, is there?
Any ideas on how I can explore delayed delivery and reception of emails on my end?

You deserve ‘straight talk’ from your cloud provider about your risk, your costs, security, uptime and the processes that are in place to protect your mission-critical applications.

There’s a movement in Information Technology (IT), and while it’s hard to define, it is gaining momentum. Some call it “stream-lined IT;” others call it “thin-model IT.”

Hi,

I have an office that's running a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 (Dell Poweredge) that's about 6 years old.  Let me preface this question with: I've inherited the server from the former technician who set it up--it would not be the way I would have originally set it up (all IT guys say that, right?).  

There has been some indications with this server that it's nearing the end of it's life.  The owners would like to look at going to "the cloud."  They have recently had a taste of Google Docs from moving many of their Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to Google Sheets and really like it.  I've let them know about the pros and cons to using Google Docs.  They were curious about Google versus Microsoft.  They're considering moving their email server to Google Apps so that everything is on Google.  Their end goal is to completely get rid of their server.  They still need active directory for their 10 workstations on the network but I was thinking that can be possibly done with Microsoft Azure.  

I've been fighting going to "the cloud" for years but the current is getting really strong to go to a cloud based solution.  My question is two fold.  Have you had experience going to Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365?  What are the pros and cons?  Also, for Active Directory.  I've had experience with Google Apps and Office 365 but not with Azure for Active Directory.  What are the pros and cons for going to something cloud based for Active Directory?  Any help or …

Your data is at risk. Probably more today that at any other time in history. There are simply more people with more access to the Web with bad intentions.

Absolutely true! Backup is mandatory these days. I would recommend multiple backups (different hosts). The most common threat these days is indeed Ransomware and that's because it is very different from other types of viruses. Learn more about it and what you need to do to keep your data safe. Remember to always keep everything patched and updated!

Put Machine Learning to Work--Protect Your Clients
Put Machine Learning to Work--Protect Your Clients

Machine learning means Smarter Cybersecurity™ Solutions.
As technology continues to advance, managing and analyzing massive data sets just can’t be accomplished by humans alone. It requires huge amounts of memory and storage, as well as the high-speed power of the cloud.

We are developing a website and are looking to migrate to the google cloud. We are trying to decide if we are better of using app engine or compute engine.

The website is mainly build in php and javascript. it talks to a mysql db which will be hosted on google cloud sql

Eventually there will also be an app that talks to the same database.

My vcloud director doesn't sync up with my storage G-1000 in terms of space. It has a lot of difference.
Example: One LUN shows 1 TB used among 2 TB. Vcloud shows 76 % full.
Any suggestions on this?

Thank you

Hi,

We are looking for recommendations for a UK based backup provider.

At the moment, we like using crashplan, as we like the unlimited backup and the pricing is great. However, as its based in the USA, this doesn't suit every client.

Can anyone recommend a UK based backup provider that provides great value for money?

Thanks!

We would like to try a few different hosted server providers based in the uk for hosting cloud servers for our small business clients eg 1 - 2 servers upto 100 users max. Most are 5 - 10 users though

We would rather use a UK based supplier and secondly one that is tried and tested.

Can you guys recommend any reliable providers ?

That's awesome! I used to maintain a candy dish in the office and it would occasionally run dry... Applying the beer tracking system would have been handy. I may have to start up that candy dish again just to do this project! Plus, it'd be a better way to understand popularity of various candy by tracking the consumption rates (I had a spreadsheet to note when I refilled and what candy I added to sort of track that, but the real-time monitoring would be even better.)

I have a local backup in place. I now want a cloud-based backup as well. Please could you experts recommend one.
Price is obviously a consideration but it must be a reputable company that has a long term future.
It needs to provide a versioning function.
Something else that bothers me about backup - I am concerned about the possibility that if malware were to gain access to my system that it could theoretically delete the data in my local backup. We use external hard drives that are rotated, so there is always off-site disconnected backups, but this is still a concern. What do the cloud-based backup solutions do to protect against this eventuality? Are some companies better than others at dealing with this?

Thank you

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We have a hosting stating that we have reached our files limits within the hosting.  We ran FileZilla and from root folder and the total files is not even 1% (see  below).

ftplimit
We thought maybe the hosting has "temp" areas or folders, like in Windows where one deletes its contents and free up space.  Nevertheless,  maybe we didn't correctly  used FileZilla to determine how many files are in our hosting.  

That said,
  • does FileZilla really searches the root of our hosting?
  • did we use FileZilla correctly to search for total files?
  • is there another apps we can try to determine the total of files our hosting has?

I pay $222/month and I get:

- Land line
- FIOS Internet
- Cable TV

But I watch only a few channels and feel ripped off.

What options do I have?

I like having a land line for a phone conversation that is near perfect, which I sometimes need for job interviews.

My cell reception from home is not terrible, but it fluctuates. Hence, the cell network would be a high cost way to get Internet access.

I really do not want to go up on my roof, three stories up to put a put on a satellite dish. Plus, I may not be living here much longer.

Do I have any options?

Thanks.

We are looking at a new application which will be hosted on the cloud. There will be some sensitive information the provider holds. We haven't decided on Azure or AWS yet

Our INFOSEC people are asking if the data will be held on servers that are multi-tenant?

From a cloud perspective, what does this really mean? What is the real risk here?

I have a customer with a small 2008 Windows server. She thinks going to the Cloud will be cheaper and easier that using a file server.
I've looked to Del for a non-server solution that will work for them. They couldn't come up with a solution using Azure. I looked at OneDrive for Business  and I think it has a file locking if 2 people work on the same file. Plus not sure how Quickbooks will work when it's in the cloud.
I looked at AWS and looks like same file locking issues.

Any solutions for an inexpensive Cloud replacement that allows mapped drives and doesn't need syncing?

I'm downloading 66gb of photos and videos from my icloud to my Windows PC external USB drive as I plan to wipe my icloud drive.  If the download is interrupted, will I need to download the whole thing again or is it a sync tool such that it will continue where it left off when interrupted?

No opinions pls (JH), facts pls.

Thx.
