Cyber Security Brief

White House Cyber Security Briefing

The White house has released a briefing on the steps your business should have already taken to protect itself from bad actors!

If you look at these steps and convert them to checkboxes…how many does your business actually do? If you are missing some boxes, Tech Tyler PC Can help shore up those misses and ensure that your business is protected.

I always say that it is a matter of “when”, not “If” you are going to be attacked. It is business critical that you have a plan in place to recover from an attack and a robust defense for the day to day attempts on bad actors attempting to compromise your data.

Tech Tyler offers a wide range of solutions that are effective and affordable for any IT budget you may be working with. We work with a wide array of vendors, partners and experts to strengthen your business’ defenses and give you the ability to recover from an attack quickly.

The majority of bad actors look at small businesses to victimize as they typically lack in cyber security and awareness. A great article from Microsoft lays out why these cyber criminals target small businesses and what you can do to try and minimize your attack vector.

Cost Effective PC’s for Lab Environments!

I have been upgrading our labs and came across a fantastic product by Minix PC. I have implemented over 50 of these devices in my public facing labs and have had no issues at this time!

I am using their Minix Z83-4 Plus model currently. It comes with Intel X5-Z8350 (64-bit) CPU, 4GB of DDR3L memory, 64GB eMMC 5.0 Storage capacity, built in Wi-Fi and a windows 10 Pro License! All wrapped up for an astonishing price of $239.90.

The best feature that I like about this product is that it comes with a cage that you can mount to the back of any VESA compatible monitor. It creates the illusion of an all in one PC, but none of the painful repair experiences those devices can bring.

All together, I can build a lab computer for an average cost of $350. When I was tasked with replacing 80+ lab computers and to stick within a certain budget, this was the best value I could find on today’s market.

I am able to join these to our Azure Environment and control them through our Intune Management Portal. The CPU and memory capacity are well within the requirements of a basic end user needing access to a simple web browser to check e-mail or complete job search activities.

If you want to check out these products, you can visit https://shop.minix.us/ or find them listed for sale on amazon!

If you’re looking for a cost-effective, lightweight machine for a light weight user this is the one to go with!
