Small Business Security

I read an interesting article that one of our clients dropped off from The Wall Street Journal (click to here to read, it is worth your time). It talks about a new trend in security. Hackers have recently been all over the headlines by tackling large companys like Sony, however now they are targetting small businesses. Key stroke loggers, a popular virus designed to capture every single keystroke made, are being slipped into computers to capture everything from credit card information, accounting data, video game accounts and even social network information.

Small businesses typically run bare essentials when it comes to security practices. Sometimes people don't even notice when their anti-virus is expired or malfunctioning. I see weak passwords almost on a daily basis, however it is getting better as myself and the rest of us here at Rayne Tech preach best security practices. Hardware firewalls are almost non-existent in many cases.

Weak passwords are worse than no password when it comes to Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 as the system will not allow remote connections to the computer if a password is not present. A strong password that changes from time to time with up to date anti-virus/malware software is one of the best defenses you have against hackers.

New Service - Spamurai

It's been over a year since we have posted anything on our blog. Mostly because we are busy serving our amazing and talented client base. We return to the blog bearing gifts: we are excited to have launched our new advanced anti-spam and mail queuing service with our partners SunStar Media called "Spamurai".

Spamurai is our in-house mail solution that almost any business should not be without. It provides advanced anti-spam filtering and up to 96 hours of mail queuing (holds your mail if your server goes offline until it comes back up) which is replicated to a cloud for redundancy. Contact us for pricing information until we have the dedicated Spamurai web site active.

Website Launch

After being in the dark ages for what seems like an eternity, our partners over at SunStar Media got tired of scoffing at our "Under Construction" page and upgraded our web site for us.

We finally have a clean website! Working with SunStar has been a very pleasant and refreshing experience. If any one is looking for some serious professional web developers, head over to and give them a call. Their knowledge, patience and dedication to their work is something the rest of their industry only dreams of.

Keep it up guys!
