Implement MFA Everywhere

Implement Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) Everywhere!

In today’s digital landscape, securing your systems requires more than just strong passwords. Implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) across all aspects of your organization is crucial. MFA adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide two or more verification factors to gain access.

  1. Extend MFA beyond just user accounts: Implement it for critical systems, applications, and administrative access.
  2. Opt for Apps instead of SMS: Authentication apps like Google Authenticator or Authy offer more security than SMS-based codes, which can be intercepted.
  3. Educate your employees: Ensure that all employees understand the importance of MFA and how to use it effectively. Regular training can help prevent security breaches.
  4. Regularly update security policies: Stay ahead of potential threats by keeping your security policies up to date. Regular reviews and updates ensure that your MFA strategy evolves with emerging threats.

By implementing these practices, you add multiple layers of security, significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access. For more information on how we can provide comprehensive IT solutions tailored to your business needs, please contact Cinter Technology at today. Our team is ready to assist you in enhancing your security and optimizing your IT infrastructure.

Online Safety Guidelines: Password Hygience

Online Safety Guidelines / Password Hygiene

In today’s digital landscape, strong password hygiene is paramount to safeguarding sensitive information. Follow these tips to enhance your password hygiene:

  1. Complexity is Key: Create passwords with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters to increase complexity and resilience against hacking attempts.
  2. Length Matters: Opt for longer passwords, as they provide an extra layer of security. Aim for a minimum of 12 characters.
  3. Unique for Every Account: Resist the temptation to reuse passwords across multiple accounts. Instead, use a password manager to generate and store unique passwords for each login.
  4. Regular Update: Change passwords periodically, ideally every 90 days, to mitigate the risk of compromise. Utilize password expiration features when available.
  5. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Enhance security with an additional layer of protection. Enable 2FA wherever possible to add an extra barrier against unauthorized access.

By adopting these practices, you can significantly enhance your online security and protect your sensitive information. Strengthen your password hygiene today to stay one step ahead of cyber threats.

Practice caution as hackers use Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies

Practice caution as hackers use Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies

Malicious hackers have begun to use AI technologies to their advantage to fool the common person with voice and video able to be recreated in mimicking an employee. An example of this recently has been scams towards regular people to ask for money from relatives using their voice, and it’s just a matter of time before similar attacks are made on businesses. At Cinter Technology, we’re mindful of these advances in AI, and ready to deploy counter measures to avoid identity attacks on a client environment.

Take advantage of VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure)

Take advantage of VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure)

VDI allows you to work in a virtual environment with a virtual CPU, RAM, and storage space. This way brings a lot of benefits. For example, your local PC gets significantly slow and hot when running multiple apps but with powerful VDI you can run multiple apps smoothly. Or your local PC gets physically damaged or stolen but your data and settings are saved on VDI. The only requirements to start using a VDI are a physical PC with the minimum specs to run a VDI, a good Internet connection, and the subscription to one of those VDI services . You do not need a fancy, powerful, or expensive PC to run a VDI.
At Cinter Technology, we’ve been using Windows 365 Cloud PCs. Let us know if you need help with deploying or maintaining VDI in your environment.
