Need a strong password but trying to remember something like Ewvo$%s! is impossible? Try using a phrase that is easy to remember and swap out letters for numbers and vice versa. For example, use "FastTeks" as your password phrase, but use this instead: F@$tTek$. Stay consistant with your characters and you'll never forget!

- Over 700,000 new viruses were identified last year alone 93% of companies that suffer a significant data loss are out of business within 5 years.
- A hard drive crashes every 15 seconds 100% of all hard drives eventually fail! Think about all of the critical data that is on your home or business computer. Financial documents, important letters, spreadsheets, presentations not to mention all of your music files and irreplaceable photos!
While CD’s and desktop backup devices are a good first step, what would happen in case of a fire, flood or break in? Your best (and safest) solution is off site data backup. Your data is securely encrypted and then sent via the internet to a level 4 data center.
Call us and we can explain all of that ‘tech talk’ to you!
