Hello and welcome to our December 2014 newsletter.

Can you believe it’s almost the end of 2014? Where has the year gone? It feels like only a few weeks ago we were welcoming you to 2014!

As the Christmas and new year period rapidly approach, now is a good time to consider arranging those crucial end of year backups – you know, the ones that are generally forgotten about until after you need them!

Now, for less than the cost of a packet of Christmas bon-bons a week, you can save all of your data files, photos, even music, to our Australian based cloud backup vault. This is proving to be extremely effective and has saved more than a few heads of hair from being pulled out! This is ideal for both work and home machines. Backups run automatically with unlimited cloud storage and the ability to grab previous versions of files. We support Windows and Mac. If you want quick, simple and secure data protection please contact us before you lose your next file.

Malware: we see an increase in malware attacks when there are special occasions – Christmas and Valentine’s Day are 2 of the key times. Be careful of emails you receive that might appear to be special greeting cards but actually contain something sinister. Anti-virus software is designed to protect you from computer viruses but not necessarily malware, which tends to attack in a different way. Some of the more prominent threats include Cryptolocker, which continues to rear its ugly head time and again. We are now delivering new technology that provides much better protection from these threats. If you have concerns you may not be adequately protected we’re only a phone call or email away, and you’ll be amazed how low cost it is too!

These are just a couple of simple things that can be applied to a computer to provide much better data and operating system protection, and can save you from a lot of potential grief. Depending on your particular circumstances there could be other things that should be addressed. But rather than get all heavy at this time of year, let’s finish off this newsletter intro with a bit of festive fun.

On behalf of all at Calvert Technologies we wish you and your families a safe and happy Christmas & new year, and we’d like to share the following bit of joy with you as our way of, hopefully, putting a little smile on your face.

All the best for the rest of 2014 and we look forward to working with you through 2015 and beyond.
