To our clients regarding COVID-19

The COVID-19 virus is all over the news lately, and while the experts’ consensus seems to be that it is not necessary to take drastic action at this time, we should be prepared in case things get worse. With that being said, it does seem a good time to discuss DR planning.

If someone was trying to break into your house…

What would you do if every night there was someone trying to break into your house to steal from you, damage your property or harm you in some way?

Would you:

Call 911
Install better locks or deadbolt
Set up security light and cameras
Get or update your alarm system
Get a gun or personal protection device
Hire someone to guard your premise

Maybe one or all of these things to protect yourself, your family and your property, right?

What if someone is trying to break into your business network and computers?

What steps are you taking to protect sensitive data, avoid stolen identities and fraud, avoid costly downtime and prevent phishing or virus infections? With the rise of Ransomware, hacking has become a very lucrative business.

The Secret Weapon Against Ransomware

According to Systematic, 2016 has been designated as the 'Year of Ransomware' due to the enormous growth in ransom thieving.
With no sign of this stopping anytime soon, companies must look at how to protect their most valuable asset, their data. Until now, Ransomware has seen an increase of 500% from the previous year.

Ransomware is Back with a Vengeance

By: Mark Richmond, President/CEO of Micro Doctor IT

Ransomware is a virus that encrypts the files on a computer and any network shared drives attached to that PC. Businesses are being hit with ransomware at an alarming pace. Once those files are encrypted there are 2 options: pay the ransom (averaging $1500.00 in Bitcoins) or restore from an unaffected backup.

The Micro Doctor Difference

What if I told you we had a way to protect you from Ransomware, Phishing Attempts and Harmful Websites? Yes, I know every other IT provider out there claims that they can protect you too, but do they? Are you still getting Viruses, CryptoLocker and Spyware?

What if I told you that our customers that implement our proprietary layered approach to security HAVE NEVER been infected with Ransomware like Crypto?

I go to several industry conferences and countless webinars to ensure that Micro Doctor has the best protection suite of products.

Micro Doctor Announces “After Hours” Business Mixer in Western Pennsylvania with the Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce

Micro Doctor has become famous for an event called “Wine Down Wednesday Business Mixer”. We typically hold only two per year, one in Trumbull County and a one in Mahoning County.

Because Micro Doctor has become more established in Western Pennsylvania, it made sense to take this show on the road and partner with the Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce to put on a Business Mixer like the Shenango Valley (SV) has never seen.

The Secret Sauce

When I talk to customers about our services they often ask “what makes Micro Doctor IT service different than the others?” My response is “it’s all in our secret sauce.”

First of all is our experience.  Micro Doctor has been in the business since 1989, and created a proactive IT management environment starting in 2007. Technology is always changing and to survive in this business that long, you have to adapt to stay ahead of technology advances.
