- Calligo acquires third Irish MSP of 2020: Cinnte Technologies
Today Calligo announces it has completed the acquisition of Cinnte Technologies, a Cavan- and Dublin-based MSP, specialising in managed IT, cloud and security services. This marks Calligo’s eighth international acquisition in three years, and the third in Ireland in 2020, reinforcing Calligo’s position as one of Ireland’s largest IT managed services providers in terms of resources, market share and especially breadth of services. Calligo has targeted rapid growth in Ireland due to the region’s continuous economic growth and its position as a well-recognised centre for innovation. This creates a need that is ideally met by Calligo’s sophisticated, data-focused managed services, especially IT Managed Services, Data Privacy Services and Data Insights Services – a portfolio that no other MSP in Ireland can match. Cinnte Technologies’ managed cloud and IT services clearly mirror Calligo’s own Outsourced IT services, and its remarkable skillsets and track record in advanced IT security services merge easily with Calligo’s key focus of data safety, and will be of substantial and immediate advantage to Calligo and its clients. “The Cinnte Technologies team has done a great job keeping its clients’ data continuously available and secure, and we will immediately supplement our local resources with their skills. We also intend to help Cinnte Technologies’ clients build from their solid data foundations, offering broader data safety through our governance and privacy services, and greater insight into their data with our automation and machine learning services.” Julian Box, Founder & CEO, Calligo “We have always differentiated successfully in the local market on our service and our IT security capabilities. With this acquisition, we can now contribute to a highly regarded global service team, serving an international customer base with a wider, data-centric service portfolio. It gives our team the opportunity to use their skills to make a far greater impact, and gives our clients access to data services that Cinnte Technologies alone could have never offered. It is a big, positive step forward for everyone involved.” Danny Barr, Cinnte Technologies’ Managing Director and Founder
- IT Security Tip: Make THIS password different from everything else
You know you’re guilty of it: using the same password for everything, which is a sign of very weak IT security. It is also one of the most common culprits for enabling cyber criminals to easily access all of your data. Believe me, I understand how annoying it is to try and remember all those passwords; and if you’re using the same password for sites that don’t share sensitive information, like a login to a news feed you like to read, then it’s generally okay. HOWEVER, the ONE password you want to keep unique is your e-mail password. If an e-commerce site you’ve registered at or bought from gets hacked – and you’ve used the SAME password you usually use for everything to register at the site – you can pretty much bet hackers are going to gain access to your in-box. They’ll have your e-mail and your password to the e-commerce site and will use that to hack in. From there, they’ll have fertile ground for getting all your data and other passwords. If you are an SMB Manager or Owner, you should know that IT security has been more compromised than ever before since the start of the COVID pandemic. Increased remote workers with poor IT security in place while outside the office, has meant even greater opportunities for cyber criminals, hackers and those looking to take full advantage of weak IT security. In addition to this, if YOU aren’t giving IT security the attention it deserves, how do you think your CLIENTS would feel about that? If for no other reason, you need to do it to protect your clients’ data, even if the only information about them you store is an e-mail address. If YOUR systems gets compromised, hackers will now have access to your CLIENTS’ e-mail and can use that for phishing scams and virus-laden spam. I’m sure your clients want you to be a good steward of their information and privacy, so stop lying to yourself and get serious about putting essential security practices in place. Cybercrime is at an all-time high, and hackers are setting their sights on small and medium businesses who are “low hanging fruit.” You can get our free report on 'The Top 10 Ways Hackers Get Around Your Firewall And Anti-Virus To Rob You Blind' today by emailing email@example.com!

- IT Security Tip: If you’ve ever said this, you’re asking to be hacked!
Do you believe it's only huge corporations that are the targets of IT Hackers? What do most small or medium sized business owners and managers believe about their own risk in terms of their IT security? ''We're too small....nobody would want to hack us.'' It is this very attitude and the number 1 reason why people (companies) are victims of hackers. It is why their own and their client's data is stolen. One thing is for certain: NO ONE and no business is immune to cybercrime or IT hackers. In fact, one in five small businesses fall victim to cybercrime and that number grows every year. Plus, half of all cyber-attacks are aimed at small businesses BECAUSE they make themselves low-hanging fruit with sloppy or non-existent IT security protocols. The attitude that 'it won't be me,' or to save a few pennies in the short-term often has disastrous consequences in the long term. Indeed, it could potentially sink your business. And one more critical point to ponder: If YOU aren’t giving IT security the attention it deserves, how do you think your CLIENTS would feel about that? If for no other reason, you need to do it to protect your clients’ data, even if the only information about them you store is an e-mail address. If YOUR system gets compromised, hackers will now have access to your CLIENTS’ e-mail and can use that for phishing scams and virus-laden spam. I’m sure your clients want you to be a good guardian of their information and privacy, so stop lying to yourself if you are taking risks with your business by having poor or no IT security measures in your business. Now is the time to get serious about putting essential security practices in place. Cybercrime is at an all-time high, and hackers are setting their sights on small and medium businesses who are “low hanging fruit.” Don’t be their next victim!
