Your Team’s New Sport, Catching Phish

The good. The bad. The ugly.  Pretty much describes your inbox, doesn't it?

What's tough is sometimes you can't tell which are which. Is the email coupon from Round Table (20% off the Hearty Bacon Supreme!) good, or an ugly phishing attempt?

Is the notice from Netflix that your account needs renewing just one of those bad emails that wants your money for services, or is it an ugly attempt to just take your money?

If you had the Catch Phish Email Analysis icon in your email menu, you wouldn't have to wonder.

It’s Been 10 Years!


It all began at the Boot Barn. Well, actually in back . . . up concrete stairs . . . to a room above the Boot Barn.  That is where Adept Solutions was in 2010 when Larry and Patty Johnson bought the little IT company.

Ah yes, the good ole days of schlepping computers up and down a concrete staircase.

What, me worry?

I grew up in the era of Mad Magazine, and on almost every cover of the magazine Alfred E. Neuman would utter the intellectually incurious words ‘What, me worry?’ Now, as we reach Cybersecurity Awareness Month (October) and add in COVID-19 and remote work, his response would have to be ‘Yes, me worry’.

Small and Medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are not immune to cyber-attacks.
