Top Online Security Threats

We’re fed up. We see so many people lose valuable time and money to breaches in computer security. People get their Facebook accounts broken into. Email gets spoofed. Passwords get stolen. At Banshee Cloud, wwhy-charactere’ve had to clean up servers and rebuild computers because people clicked on links and videos. Or because people were using passwords that were easy to guess.

So we developed a way to bring enterprise-grade computer protection to everyone…not just businesses. But even beyond that, we want to share what we’ve learned from our research and experience protecting computers. So we’ll be posting some of the threats we have seen over social media.

Over time, you’ll be able to check on the entire list by going to our blog and clicking on the category, Computing Security. You can always find a shortcut here: http://t2d.la/security

GET OVER THE TECHNOLOGY! YOU are more important!

“GET OVER THE TECHNOLOGY!”

This sounds odd coming from a tech company, but we think the latest computing tools should be used to move beyond whether this technology is better or that technology is cool. We use tech to bring the focus back to YOU. How you work. What you want to do. Who you are.

“YOU are More Important!

atomic-accounting: Custom Software That Saves You a Lot of Money

We are proud to present:  atomic-accounting

atomic-accounting-Logo-eCardOur team has over 50 years collective experience with accounting and software systems. And we’ve seen one thing happen quite consistently: Businesses worldwide spending countless employee-hours working around the shortcomings of their accounting systems.  If your business is anything like most, you’re paying employees to spend at least 50 man-hours a year copying data from your accounting system into spreadsheets to create the reports you need to keep track of your business.  And your actual number is probably around 100 man-hours or more.  That’s a lot of money leaking out of your accounting system.

When you look at it that way, spending a couple of hundred bucks on that popular software package at the warehouse store isn’t much of a savings.

Keeping this in mind, we at Banshee Cloud have come up with an innovative way to provide your business with a custom accounting system that yields a much lower total cost of ownership.  You see, we’ve seen how complicated modern accounting software has become and realized that we can build a new system based upon going back to the basics.  So by breaking electronic bookkeeping into its core components, it then becomes simple to develop a truly modular system.  A system that can be developed quickly and inexpensively.  And be quite fast and powerful.

Just as all matter can be broken down into atoms, we break financial record keeping into the basic transactions of debits and credits in balanced accounts.   And just as atoms make up some very complex molecules, we can build our system into whatever records, calculations, and reports your business and the government requires.  Because a sound double entry system requires balance.  Which seems to be something many of the most popular accounting packages have lost sight of.

And since we are experts in utilizing the most powerful and secure computing systems available, your data is automatically backed up and protected.  Like all of our data storage systems, it’s fully compliant with the most stringent certifications.  Plus guarded by a full-time security staff larger than what most regional banks employ.  It has always been important to us to make sure your data is accessible even during large-scale disasters, plus we also know from experience that many businesses have had suffered from a complete loss of accounting data.  So we’ve built atomic-accounting to the same standards as all our other data storage.

If your employees are spending just a few minutes every day copying accounting data into spreadsheets, we can show you how your business can save with a custom atomic-accounting system.  We urge you to learn more at www.atomic-accounting.com or contact us today for a Free Consultation.

Cybersecurity. It’s Not Just the President’s Concern. It’s Something EVERYONE Online Should Address

Today, President Barack Obama addressed the nation from the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection at Stanford University. Notably, several prominent tech CEOs were not in attendance. And perhaps the Executive Order Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing does raise some personal privacy issues. So understandably, debate has only just begun on this event.

But is this all just political? Statistics certainly support an increase in widespread breaches and vast amounts of personal and financial data from major corporations. A good majority of the American and indeed the world population have already been affected. And that’s just the headlines.

As with all other types of crimes, there are countless incidents that occur each and every day. Many of them are right in your town, your neighborhood…and yes, your home. Of this, our company can attest. We maintain networks and we work with software. And in both areas, we find ourselves appalled at the prevalence of attacks on the computers and systems that we deal with on a daily basis.

It has been a given fact for some time now that Wall Street and the world’s major organizations have all experienced some form of cybersecurity compromise. And that would be quite constantly.

But what about Main Street? All the local businesses and all the households in our country and throughout the world are just as beleaguered.

We truly find the situation outright ludicrous. If every business and every home that you pass by daily were to be the target of burglary, people would be outraged. Even the most impoverished neighborhoods do not have to deal with a constant barrage of criminals trying to break in. Such a scenario plays right out of a post-apocalyptic zombie movie.

Family in Front of HouseAnd yet our online lives are indeed embattled to that outrageous degree. Every business, every home, every one of us. We are all subjected to a literally unending stream of attacks upon our computing devices.

Attacks on the nation’s infrastructure and corporate databases grab headlines. But every minute and every hour of every day, millions worldwide are silent and often unknowing victims. We call them “The Hackers” in an attempt to categorize and make sense of this threat. There are state-sponsored programs out to cripple our military. There are organized criminals literally ganging up to obtain credit cards and other lucrative items. And yes there really are individuals trying to get into your system just because they can.

But they are there. And they go after all of us, without exception. Move over, zombies. You’re virtually nothing compared to the swarm at the gate. Or as we say in the business, gateway.

banSHIELD Clean is for those dreaded situations when your computer does get infected. Because computer security is just like home security…no matter how sophisticated the locks and alarms, nothing is impenetrable.

So we have applied our experience in cleaning up business systems to come up with ways to clean up your devices.
