Recommended Actions

Absolute is a Microsoft Silver Partner! The value of our Microsoft Silver Partner status to our clients lies in the guarantee of professional expert support. As we continue to develop the expertise of our staff and provide total satisfaction for our clients, we are proud to celebrate this achievement and excited to continue to build upon our experience and knowledge.

At this time, we recommend to our clients work with us to identify and use a blend of long-term and short-term commitments to suit their specific licensing needs for employees.

While many are accustomed to a constantly changing Microsoft licensing landscape, the impact of NCE will require an even more extensive effort for both our clients and Absolute to navigate together. It is important to have a trusted Microsoft partner like Absolute in your corner helping your organization navigate these changes.

Absolute will be contacting all current clients during the first quarter of 2022 to discuss the upcoming Microsoft licensing program and term changes. Our goal, as your IT partner, is to ensure each client is setup to operate within the new Microsoft licensing program that best aligns to their business needs.

Email Security

Running a business comes with many risks, but email security shouldn't be one of them.

Absolute offers several security options including email encryption, endpoint security, phishing, malware and virus filtering, and more.

The following security awareness best practices are recommended for all businesses.

Phishing Attempt

Be mindful of phishing attempts

Any email with a web link that you didn't directly request should be suspect.
Password Protection

Setup Two-Factor Authentication

We advise all of our clients to setup two-factor authentication on their email accounts.
SSL Certificate

Watch for SSL certificate errors

If your browser is telling you something is wrong with a website but you aren't sure, reach out for assistance. There may be a problem or the site you are trying to access or it may not be legit.
Phishing Attempt

Verify requests for critical information

If the CEO sends an email needing an urgent money transfer, pick up the phone and call them.  Make it a rule not to allow those kinds of requests via Email so that everyone knows what to do when that happens.

Email Security Options

Email Encryption

$5.00
