Avira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaAvira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaPosted: 11 Jun 2020 12:00 AM PDTEvery computer needs antivirus protection, and one way companies can support that aim is to provide free antivirus to the masses. But these companies can't survive unless some users shell out their hard-earned cash for paid antivirus utilities. Piling on pro-only tools and components is one way companies encourage upgrading to a paid antivirus. Avira Antivirus Pro adds several components not available to users of Avira Free Security, but they don't really add much value. The biggest reason to pay for it is if you want to use Avira in a commercial setting, which isn't allowed with the free version.Avira's pricing is undeniably on the high side, with a list price of $59.88 per year for one license, $71.88 for three, and $95.88 for five. Admittedly, it seems to be perpetually on sale; just now, the one-license price is discounted to $44.99. That…

Ninja RMM raises money - - Enterprise Times

Posted: 13 Mar 2020 12:00 AM PDT

NinjaRMM Ninja Image by MichaelWuensch from Pixabay NinjaRMM has completed a $30 million funding round led by Summit Partners. Summit were not the only investors but NinjaRMM did not reveal who else participated. This brings the total raised by NinjaRMM to $36 million. As a result of the funding Summit Partners will have a minority shareholding. This means that the company will remain independent and founder led. NinjaRMM offers a remote monitoring and endpoint management solution which is G2 that ranks as a leader in its Grid for Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM).

Salvatore Sferlazza, CEO of NinjaRMM commented: "Summit's financing will enable us to move even faster, deliver more value to our customers and accelerate market leadership. We are excited to partner with Summit who has a wealth of experience advising highly successful companies, while giving us the flexibility to operate as an independent organization. We've always strived to deliver a product that continuously exceeds expectations, and as the largest independent RMM solution on the market, we're proud of what we've accomplished in such a short amount of time."

Where will NinjaRMM spend the money?

Over the last few years NinjaRMM has grown significantly. In the 2019 alone it grew its engineering team by 60%. It also doubled partners (customers) to more than 4,000 companies during 2019. It also added a host of new features including:

  • A Bitdefender integration
  • VMware integration
  • Extended the ConnectWise integration
  • A new mobile app for iOS and Android
  • New Remote tools to manage machines remotely
  • New security features including enforced MFA and node approval for new devices

With the funding in its pockets it is now able to deliver on its commitments and more in 2020. Those promised features include:

  • API 2.0: A vastly enhanced API offering which will allow you to add organizations, locations, identify system events and running actions, trigger scans, webhooks, and much more.
  • BrightGauge integration: Originally planned for 2019, but delayed so we could build out our API 2.0 in tandem.
  • BitLocker encryption key management.
  • Additional out-of-box monitoring templates: Saving you valuable onboarding time.
  • Clickable dashboards: Click on bars and graphs to instantly access the data that is most critical to you.
  • Maintenance mode: Pause notifications and alerts while you conduct site maintenance.
  • Linux agent.
  • Improved Mac tools: Including remote tools and OS patching.
  • Bitdefender Content Filtering, Firewall.
  • Bitdefender Mac.

Its intention is to "double down" on product development further extending the functionality of its platform. Enterprise Times asked the company whether it would look to use some of the funds for international growth. The spokesperson commented: "For the time being, our plan is to continue to grow our Berlin office. No new international offices are currently planned, but that may change as we expand into Latin America and Oceania over the next few years."

Enterprise Times: What does this mean

The RMM and ITSM sector has seem some significant investment recently. Kaseya raised $500 million in a funding round led by TPG and Insight Partners. Connectwise was acquired by Thoma Bravo. Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo acquired Solarwinds in 2016. Summit Partners have also made investments in the space with Jamf and Red Canary. It was also an investor in Continuum which was recently acquired by ConnectWise.

Andrew Collins, a managing director at Summit Partners and member of the NinjaRMM Board of Directors noted: "NinjaRMM is focused on disrupting the status quo by bringing better products and better service to highly skilled IT professionals. The company's powerful, intuitive platform is backed by incredible customer support and takes a fresh, innovative approach to remote monitoring and endpoint management. We believe that the MSP and IT software market has been underserved for years, and we are proud to support Ninja's continued expansion in the sector."

NinjaRMM's growth to date alone would indicate that this is a good bet by SummitPartners. The investment will enable it to strengthen its portfolio faster than some of the smaller competition. Whether the decision is right not to accelerate international growth, only time will tell. The risk is that others will take market share in other territories and NinjaRMM may face an uphill battle in the future.

Response from NinjaRMM

On our opinion about their international plans NinjaRMM further clarified how they are looking to expand internationally.

Kodie Dower, Media Relations Manager at NinjaRMM stated: "We are accelerating international growth. We're actively working on translating our website to all European languages and we plan to invest heavily into our presence in Berlin so we can dominate the EMEA market – a market with a fast-maturing MSP population which has been underserved by our competitors. France, in particular, has been a major source of growth for us.

"Once we've translated our website into Spanish, we'll be in a much better place to then expand into Latin America. We hope to do that this year. Whether that means opening another office in Latin America or increasing the size of our Clearwater, FL, office, we haven't confirmed yet."

Novel cyberthreats: how to stay safe when working from home - Best gaming pro

Posted: 27 Mar 2020 01:33 PM PDT

protect yourself and your company from cybersecurity risks. Luckily, there are some easy-to-follow and practical tips on how to secure your home and corporate computer while working remotely. Most people would benefit from using a VPN and a trusted antivirus at minimum, but some of our tips are dependent on whether you're using a company device, a personal device, or a shared computer.  

Working on a company device?

· Use your company's VPN or invest in a personal VPN provider in order to secure your connection. While a VPN won't protect against all attacks, it is a helpful first defence against opportunistic hackers.  

· Use two-factor authentication whenever possible, especially if you have access to corporate resources. Without two-factor authentication, it's hard to track users and identify if a login is real.

· Be extra careful with clicking on email attachments and messages with links, especially if they appear to be from a health agency. All the uncertainty around coronavirus has given digital thieves the perfect chance to perform phishing attacks by using fake CDC or WHO emails that offer alerts on the Covid-19 updates in your region. It's better to avoid opening such messages, clicking on similar ads, and installing tracking apps. You can easily get all the updates on official websites, without any personal data required.

Working on your own device?

· Make sure you are running the last updates of your operating system and software. These updates are critical for both macOS and Windows computers as they often provide security patches for known exploits.

· Use a trusted antivirus software like BitDefender, Avast or a bundled security suite such as Mackeeper (which includes features such as antivirus, VPN, and antitracking) installed directly from the official website.

· Turn on data encryption on your computer to prevent unauthorized access to your information. Use FileVault on Mac and BitLocker on Windows.

Sharing a family computer?

· Explain cybersecurity basics to your kids. In the disease control world, kids are sometimes called "super-spreaders" because they share lots of things, good and bad. The same can be true for online viruses. Remind your kids not to ignore messages from strangers, avoid opening unfamiliar links or attachments from friends, and to never download apps without your permission first.  

· Use different accounts on your home computer for every member of your family. Often, all members use one account with admin rights, with the same access to everything and the same saved passwords. Create different accounts without admin rights for each member of your family.

· If you do suspect you've been targeted with a virus or have been hacked, run a scan with your local antivirus. Most antiviruses allow you to restart the computer in a safe mode and check it. If you still have trouble, contact your computer's technical support for help or reach out to our team.

Along with social distancing, practice virtual distancing: don't click on any links, attachments, or emails from unknown senders and be cautious with things sent from friends. And as we all relearn the importance of good old-fashioned handwashing, it's a good time to remember that antivirus software is the best way to protect ourselves online.
