Be Careful Using Zoom

During the coronavirus, many schools and companies adopted Zoom to conduct online lessons or video, but concerns about security and privacy have led to a ban on the video conferencing software across the U.S., including Google, NASA, and The United States Senate. Many of these organizations are switching to Microsoft Teams, a more secure alternative. If your organization is interested in utilizing Microsoft Teams during the coronavirus lockdown, we are offering a Free, Six-Month Trial of the software. 

Office 365 Is Turning Into Microsoft 365

Starting April 21, Microsoft’s Office 365 will be renamed Microsoft 365. For those that have been following, this rebrand is a natural evolution. This is a change to the product name only. The changes will happen automatically and there are no pricing or feature changes at this time.
