IT and Cloud Services

The Information Technology department of any modern business is vulnerable to cyber attacks. Even government agencies and banks have been hacked by rogue agents. Therefore, it is important for businesses to secure their networks with the latest cyber security measures that are available. First of all, the onsite network in an office should be protected by technology such as Firewall and encryption. A Firewall prevents any external users from logging into a wired or wireless network that consists of personal computers and other hardware. Firewall technology essentially limits network access to the hardware in a physical office space. It is impossible for anyone sitting outside of an office to try and log into a network.

Inside an office, encryption technology is used to secure usernames and passwords on each computer. In order to use the local area network of an office, a user must enter some unique information. Every time a username and pass code is entered, a random 256 bit encryption is generated. Such technology essentially prevents any hackers from decoding wireless information that is transmitted inside an office network. Without encryption protection, a hacker may sit outside of an office building and detect wireless signals that carry information about a network’s passwords. The wireless signals could be easily decoded from binary language into standard characters.

Why Buy An A3 Printer?

You might be thinking to yourself that you don’t actually need an A3 printer, because most of the stuff that you print out is in A4. This may well be true, but there are actually many uses for an A3 printer that its older brother simply cannot do well (or at all)!

The thing is, a lot of businesses, organisations and even individuals could do with having an A3 printer in their possession because it helps them to be more productive. Here are some of the most-common reasons why it makes perfect sense to get an A3 printer.

 

Blueprints and drawings

If you are an architect or illustrator, one of your daily tasks will be to print out some drawings or illustrations from your computer onto paper.

Although for some people using an A4 printer is perfectly fine for the job, having an A3 printer will help you to facilitate your printing needs because you have more paper real estate to print on, and you avoid having to stick two bits of A4 paper together!

 

Posters

Many folks get any posters printed out by a local printing firm, but if you print them out on a regular basis it can be more cost-effective to buy your own A3 printer and print the posters out yourself!

And if you need to print large volumes of A3 posters, you will be pleased to note that A3 printers are considerably quicker to print stuff out these days than older models. It’s also worth noting that the colour produced by A3 printers is pretty phenomenal!

LED vs. LCD TV: Which should you buy?

LCD television conquered the entertainment market soon as it was launched. It was very expensive then but competition and newer models especially LED Television made up for tight price fights. But what really is the difference between LCD and LED television? Which of these should you buy?

 

TV

 

LCD or liquid crystal display television actually works wonders to give us vivid black and colored images. It is lighted by via CCFL or cold-cathode fluorescent lamps at the back of the screen which is made of liquid crystals. The LCD shutters plus the colored filters are fixed in a grid so white light is controlled and only the colors red, green and blue passes through.  On the other hand, LED television is an LCD television that uses LED backlight instead of the usual CCFLs’ LED or light emitting diodes are used to illuminate the screen but it uses less energy making LED televisions more energy efficient and eco-friendly.

 

When quality is compared, LED is also boosts better brightness levels than the usual LCD screen television. You get more realistic and vivid images with LED TV. In terms of prices, LCD televisions are more affordable than LED probably because LED TVs are still offered as high-end products of today’s popular television brands.
