Kerio Connect is an ideal solution for businesses that need a modern, full-featured yet affordable mail server. Powerful and reliable, it provides email, shared calendars and contact management to most email clients, web browsers and mobile devices. It also has integrated anti-virus, multiple layers of spam control, built-in archiving, and automated backup. What makes it even more ideal is Kerio Connect’s ability to work cross platform on Macs, PCs and mobile devices. This means everything is integrated even if Windows users are using Outlook and Mac users are using Mail, Contacts and Calendars.

The days before email became essential to doing business seem like a theme for a documentary on the History Channel. Gone are the days when businesses relied solely on snail mail and phone calls to communicate. Email is a critical component to business success and the ability for your mail server to multitask is just as important.

Ask yourself a few questions to determine if your email server is adequately meeting your current needs.

Two-Factor Authentication Adds Extra Protection For Your Apple Account

twostep-820x420

Protecting your identity and account information from theft and misuse is becoming more and more challenging. For Apple and Mac users, where all activity revolves around an individual Apple ID, protecting the information stored in your account is especially critical. Apple has added an extra layer of security to the log in process on new devices—in addition to the standard password protection--to do just that.

Two-factor authentication is designed to ensure that your account can only be accessed on devices you trust, such as your iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and only by you. When you sign in to a new device for the first time, you need to provide not only your password (factor 1), but also a six-digit verification code that is automatically displayed on one of your trusted devices (factor 2). This extra layer of security ensures that only you can access your account, even if someone else knows your password. By entering the code, you’re confirming that you trust the new device. Think of it like an electronic version of a job reference. Your trusted device is providing a reference by indicating that the newcomer is ok.
