  • Old: There's a great chance that your business uses Windows, specifically Windows 7, on most of its computers. While Apple's macOS enjoys popularity in industries such as design, Microsoft Windows is far and away the most popular due to its ubiquity and enterprise-friendly features.

  • Old: If your small business only houses a couple of employees, you might be tempted to use a free email service for your company. Going with Gmail, Yahoo, or your Internet service provider's (ISP) email service might easy and free, but you get so much more with Office 365, a designated email for business.

  • New: Four years ago, Dropbox was hacked. At the time, public information said that only email addresses were stolen. We now know a copy of users' encrypted passwords were also taken. Knowing that your information could be compromised, what should you do to protect yourself? Since the stolen passwords were appropriately encrypted, instead of the hackers seeing plain text passwords, they were instead greeted with a series of seemingly random characters.

  • New: If you haven't updated your iPhone or iPad in a while, now is a good time. Apple just released a critical security update that resolves a rather nasty bug.

While Microsoft offered a year-long free upgrade to consumers running Windows 7 or 8.1, most businesses haven't upgraded yet. This is understandable, since rolling out an operating system (OS) to an entire organization is a lot more involved than updating it on a single PC. However, now that Windows 10 is out of its infancy, it's time for businesses to take a closer look at the OS and why it's a good idea to think about upgrading soon.
