We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

        I have relied on Jeff and his crew for not only minor 'bugs' that occur but also for swapping out the entire data from an older laptop into the one I currently use. They have always been able to do the job and quickly. Most of the time they are able to resolve the issue over the phone, while controlling my computer from their office. Love it!! Makes my life so much easier. No more having to take the computer into the store.

      What You Should Be Mindful of Before Hosting Your Software in the Cloud

      According to a recent study, predictions say that SaaS offerings will make up 59 percent of the cloud computing workload by 2018--and with more and more businesses utilizing cloud hosting, those predictions seem well founded.

      If you’re looking to move your assets into a cloud environment, they must first be virtualized with other variables taken into consideration. What follows are two crucial considerations to implementing the cloud for your business.

      Are You Ready to Integrate?
      Unfortunately, many mission-critical applications and cloud services don’t play very nicely with each other, which can lead to issues with integration. If you plan to connect all of your most-used services to a new cloud service, you must be sure to test that they comply with integration requirements. In short, you have to do your homework and learn what the cloud service requires. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing resources and experiencing downtime due to incompatibility.

      Is Your Connection Reliable Enough?
      In order for a business to use the cloud, a reliable connection is needed. Can your in-house network provide enough bandwidth to access the cloud, even during peak hours? Does your ISP provide you with consistent Internet service?

      It is common for companies to upgrade their Internet service before making the switch to a cloud solution, to ensure that they have what it takes to support that type of data-intensive activity. Finally, you should look into the cloud service provider you are considering. Can they guarantee your connectivity and uptime?

      These considerations must both be fulfilled if your cloud service is to truly be of benefit to your business operations. We can help you optimize your network, and help you make a seamless transition to cloud-based services. For more assistance, call PC Technologies at 360-491-2227.

      Tip of the Week: Find Your Lost Smartphone With Ease

      For an iPhone or Other Apple Product
      If your go-to operating system is iOS, the Find My iPhone application can help you if you should find that your device has gone missing. If the device in question is linked to your iCloud account, or has the app installed, you can log into the app from another device to make locating the lost one much easier.

      The app allows you to track the movement of your device, as well as lock the device, and send a message to the finder so they may contact you. Just make sure you set up Find My iPhone while you have your device.

      For a Device with Android OS
      If you can perform a Google search, you can find a misplaced Android device. All you have to do is sign into the same Google account that you use on your device and enter “Find my Phone,” into the search bar. If you’ve connected your Google account to the device, you’ll be able to pull up a small map of the device’s surroundings. You can even ring the device if you’re nearby (and it’s turned on) to help your efforts to find it.

      Finding Other Devices
      Even if you aren’t an Apple user, and your lost device runs an operating system other than Android, you still have options. One of these options is an app called Prey. Able to be installed on up to three devices, you can use Prey to identify who has your device, assuming they have yet to wipe it. All the device will need is the ability to connect to Wi-Fi and have a camera in order for the app to do its job.

      Prey can keep you updated on the status of your device, issuing a new report every 20 minutes. These reports can involve images captured by the device of its surroundings and the person who has it, as well as images of the display itself and notifications of changes made to the device. If you aren’t suspicious of any foul play, you can even send a message to whomever has your device, giving them the ability to contact you directly. On the other hand, you can also lock and/or wipe your device if worse comes to worse.

      Did My Samsung Device Just Wink? Is it Spying on Me?

      First off, know that the appearance of an eye icon doesn’t mean that you’re being watched by a hacker. It’s a Samsung feature called Smart Stay, and when you see the eye, it means that the feature is activated.

      What is Smart Stay?
      Smart Stay is a clever feature that uses your device's front camera to sense when you are looking at the device. Once your face (or any face) is detected, Smart Stay will then prevent the screen from turning off, overriding any screen timeout setting. As you can imagine, this is a very helpful feature that prevents your screen from turning off while you’re reading a blog or an email, which can be a frustrating experience.

      You can adjust the feature from the Android home screen by going to Menu > Settings > My Device > Smart screen. From here, check or uncheck Smart Stay to turn the feature on or off. Of course, it’s such a helpful feature that you’ve really got no reason to turn it off. That is, unless you want to conserve battery power.

      How Do I Know if My Phone is Compromised?
      Now that we’ve established that Samsung’s Smart Stay feature is not spying on you, let’s go over some symptoms that you’ll see on your phone if it is hacked. Depending on the nature of the hack, some of these symptoms could even mean that someone may actually be spying on you via your phone.

      • Unfamiliar charges on your carrier’s statement.
      • Data access patterns that you don’t recognize.
      • Your battery drains quicker than normal.
      • You find apps that are downloaded from a third-party app store.
      • Strange notifications start appearing, especially related to finding and downloading new apps and games.
      • Your device has been rooted (aka jailbroken).
      • Your antivirus has been disabled.
      • You actually see the hacker’s remote actions of opening apps and navigating your phone.

      Of course, if you have any suspicion whatsoever that your phone is hacked, then it’s a smart move to turn off the device’s Internet connection, or even power it down completely. You’ll then want to take your phone to an IT professional like the friendly technicians at PC Technologies for us to confirm or deny your suspicion, and then remove the threat entirely should we find one.

      In today’s hack-happy world, it’s good to be suspicious when you see something on your device that you don’t understand, like perhaps the Smart Stay eyeball. PC Technologies is standing by to assist you when you encounter your phone doing something that you don’t understand, because when it comes to your personal data, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
