We use Mimecast as the first layer of email security and then we use a hosted exchange for our email, all I can say is thank god the hosted email system has spam & virus filtering as mimecast still let cr4p through.
Even our end point security has to grab the last scrags of vermin ware that have made it through all the filtering.
Multi layered approach is the only way and still beat sorry train end users to be vigilant.
Didn't bother ringing Sage lack of support we have just changed this month to the cloudy payslips after they told me I had to give our HR Drones Admin access to the domain and local PC to be able to send out the payslips by email since the last update....
Needless to say I hold their support people just below HP and BT.
Thankfully I will not have to deal with morons much more as we are having a sage 200 box installed that I will nothing to do with ... thank you External support people ...
Have a look at the B4RN stuff, they are stuffing the likes of BT (Where are the billions you got for doing fibre.... a$$wipes) or Virmin Media (thank you for the speed increase and price) cannot or won't do and the annoying bit where I am was supposed to be part of the SuperFastSouthYorkshite network there is a fibre cab with 1 GB in it at the end of the street approx 200yds away can I get it no way no one will supply it due to wayleaves and build costs.
Loved the write ups, love the in depth details on how they deliver the content, even though I only have their Fibre Broadband.
Well done more articles like this please - have a beer you need it after the write up unless you used a transcription service in which case a
Beer Wine for the typist.
"It is expected to launch on Wednesday 12 August or Thursday 13 August, depending on the weather."
Round these parts its Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th... This year at least...
Or will the higher resolution be able to break the time dimensions...
Mines the one with the sonic screwdriver and the tin hat on a string..
I work on the southern edge of Doncaster and you would think that you are in the wilds here.
We cannot get Digital Region, now defunct anyway, Virgin Cable not going over the motorway and railway lines, we are offered FTTC from a cabinet 2.8km away !!! download speeds on one line @ 8mb and the other 3mb upload speeds are 600k if we are lucky, we have a cabinet 315m from our gate and a BT trunk that runs past the end of the gate but they will not connect us...
We have even offered to pay for the Fibre from the cabinet to our premises only to be told by a "lovely lady" you DO NOT tell us where you want your connections from we tell you.
BT have a monopoly on the services and always have, so they just throw 2 fingers up to most and give the middle to the rest and the without teeth regulator.
We have looked at satellite as a back up but that has limitations...
We use MPH Mile Pints Lbs and all of the such like, that is until the BBC / SKY change us over via the backdoor or the EU force us to join the rest of the European wusses.
Off to block the channel tunnel up and stop johnny foreigner getting in and making me drink a Kilo of Warm Beer ;)
