In our November issue, we look at Internet-Protocol (IP) based video systems.  The convergence of video over the same networks as PCs means companies no longer have to string coax cable for video as the video signal can now piggy-back on the same network as computers.  Companies are installing video for security, safety and as a crime deterrent, and SIM2K can specify, install, configure and support these video systems.  We also take a look at two of the popular note-taking programs, Microsoft's OneNote and Evernote, and compare the pros and cons of both.  Users of Google Chrome browsers will see some improvements with the new update that also fixes lots of security issues.  Microsoft is rolling out a new authorization policy for Windows 10 Enterprise which may foreshadow where the company will go with all Windows licensing in the future. And, we re-cap Cybersecurity Month with a look at the "Bad Rabbit" ransomware released at the end of October and cover our tips for securing your network from malware.

In our February SIMformation, we look at spearphishing attacks on Indianapolis businesses that target W-2 tax forms, giving the scammer all employee names, addresses and Social Security numbers.  We want everyone to be aware of this activity, and provide tips on what to look for to prevent falling for this scam.  Also, we discuss "Scareware" and how it differs from Ransomware, another scam hitting many of our clients.  

We discuss pointers for installing or expanding a Wireless network for businesses.  Just going to a chain store and buying an access point won't work for business traffic, so we provide details on planning, equipment, installation and security for any business offering Wi-Fi connectivity for employees and guests.

And, we look at the declining market share for Microsoft browers, both Internet Explorer and Edge, and new technology attempting to use LED lighting for network connectivity.  Plus, new Chromebooks can now run many Android Apps, bridging the space between PCs and smartphones.

Microsoft will unveil a browser not named Internet Explorer (IE) alongside Windows 10, according to an online report. Industry observers say unnamed sources within Microsoft say the browser would be separate from the existing Internet Explorer, would sport a minimalist user interface, and would support extensions, sometimes call addons, like Google Chrome and Firefox do.
