New Computer Set Up – Are You Protected?

When setting up a new PC, Laptop, Tablet, or wireless network there are many different areas that need to be secured to protect you from viruses, malware, spyware, identity theft and more.  Below is a basic list of what needs to be configured and secured to give you the best chance at being protected.  It does need to be noted that there is no way to completely secure a computer or wireless network but taking these measures will drastically improve the security of your computer, device, or network.
  • Wireless router password protected 
  • New active antivirus installed 
  • Antivirus virus definitions list updated 
  • Antivirus configured (including link scanning, email scanning, download scanning, password protection)
  • Firewall settings configured 
  • Secure your web browser(s) 
  • Parental control settings configured 
  • Create a password for Windows 7 
  • Install security patches and use automatic updates 
  • Create system passwords on tablets and/or phones 
  • Use mobile antivirus software on tablets and phones 
  • Increase personal security with features like phone find, remote lock, and remote wipe
With the new technology surfacing daily we need to make sure our systems are protected.  These are a few of the many different things you can do to protect your investment and your livelihood.  Fast-teks can help you keep your computers and your family safe.  We can set up new computers and we will look over your entire network for security issues and make everything protected and stable.

Windows 7 Upgrade

 

Are you still running Windows XP?  Service Pack 2 is no longer being updated and soon, Service Pack 3 will follow suite making XP more vulnerable to attacks.  Upgrading to Windows 7 will give you the latest protection and best of all, it's faster and easier to use!


When you are ready to make the move, let Fast-teks make it easy for you! 

 


 

Windows Tip

Tired of typing in the full web address?  Use this tip to cut down on key strokes:

If you want to visit Google, type in "google" (without the quotes) in your browser's address bar and then hold the <CTRL> key down and press <ENTER>.  Windows will automatically fill in the rest of the web address for you!

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!
 


Fast-teks is committed to protecting your data. Data loss statistics are frightening for both homeowners and small businesses:

  • Hardware and system failures account for 78% of all data loss
  • 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!)
