What Our Clients Say

  • I don’t know if I can say enough about Marin Technologies.
    President, Concordia Finance, Inc. / Rancho Cucamonga

    I don’t know if I can say enough about Marin Technologies. I have known Steve Marin for 8 years. He was working for another company at the time but still made us feel like his only client. He even recommended a person to be our in house I.T. manager. The relationship continued as an additional source for our I.T. issues. When our I.T. manager left the company, Marin Technologies had been established. It was an easy decision to make the transition.

  • Marin Technologies treats me like I am their only and most special client.
    President, Accredited Tax, Inc. / Chino, CA

    The uniqueness I have experienced is one of being treated like I am their only and most special client. The response time and willingness to help and wide range of knowledge of technology is beyond my expectations of any firm.

  • Marin Tech provides excellent service with personal attention

Tip of the Week: Collaborate Better

Prioritize Concision and Clarity

While communication is vital to your business, it can become detrimental to your operations if it is abused. Think about the meeting that goes on endlessly with only a little being accomplished. This is never a good situation, and it’s only all the worse when the team you’re working with is a remote one.

Make sure your team is using its technology appropriately and keeping things efficient and streamlined. Adopting a company shorthand can help move communications along—a quick label tossed in the message can give it a little more context. For instance, adding NRN to a message for “No Response Needed” lets the person getting your message know that no further action has to be taken (provided that everyone understands what NRN means). Figure out what works best for you and your operations and make use of that.

Use the Right Tool

With as many communications as a business handles it only makes sense that there are so many methods to communicate with. Depending on the message, one form of communication may be the better option than another. Addressing a group via an email is much more effective than using an instant message, while the opposite may be the case when addressing an individual. This stands true for all your communication methods, from virtual meetings and other means of reaching out to your remote coworkers.

Test and Retest

Once you’ve decided upon a communication tool, don’t assume that there isn’t a better way to use it, or that it will be the best for your business in perpetuity.

So, instead of assuming that what you’ve selected is the be-all-end-all for your business, evaluate how your processes are working. If you find any inefficiencies, determine what caused them and figure out what needs to be done to eliminate them. Make your adjustments, substitutions, additions, and/or eliminations, and try it again. It may be that your employees just need more direction on what is involved in the process. Once you’ve made your changes, test it again, and repeat until things improve or a better option presents itself.

Marin Technologies is here to help, as we can help you implement the solutions you need as we monitor them for these issues. To learn more about what we have to offer, give Marin Technologies a call at (208) 329-6792.

COVID-19 is Having a Big Effect on Cybersecurity

It Was Bad Before, Now It’s Worse

Before this whole COVID-19 mess, there were a lot of different threats that businesses had to take into consideration. Now with the fear surrounding the pandemic, scammers have a lot of new ammunition to use to try to steal access and data. The problem is that with everyone distracted, people are being less vigilant and it’s creating more victims. Threats include:

  • Phishing attacks 
  • Distributed denial of service attacks
  • Man-in-the-Middle attacks
  • Network based user threats due to negligence or sabotage

Any of these can work to undermine your business’ network security and cause major problems from operational disruption, a loss of reputation, data theft, and even the unthinkable: a ransomware situation.

Any of these threats can undermine your business. Here are two of the direct problems businesses have been seeing during the COVID-19 pandemic:

Website Spoofing

It’s a shame that business owners and decision makers are forced to deal with these kinds of problems when their attention should be on sustaining their business’ operations. Scammers don’t care that this situation is stressful enough. They have been setting up websites that spoof legitimate ones and people have fallen for them. They have set up sites spoofing government websites, businesses, banks, and more. Here are a couple things you should keep in mind to not fall victim to these sites.

  • Check the URL - While a fake site may look just like the real thing, the URL will not. You need to move deliberately online when sensitive personal, medical, or financial information is at stake. Simply running your mouse over any links or buttons can expose spoofed websites and keep you from being a victim. 
  • Use Ad Blockers - As simple as any solution there is, is to use ad blockers. These browser extensions can go a long way toward keeping you off spoofed websites and on the legitimate path.

Email and Text Phishing

If you are a regular reader of our blog, we discuss phishing all the time. It is currently the number one threat to people online, and therefore, the biggest threat to businesses, too. Phishing tactics are known to adjust, and during the COVID-19 pandemic they’ve done just that, attempting to use the pandemic as a way to gain access to computing networks. With over three billion phishing emails sent every day, it is essential for any decision maker to make phishing training (and testing) a priority for your organization. It will pay huge dividends if that knowledge can keep your business from dealing with the litany of problems that come from being successfully phished. Here are two things you need to drill your team on:

  • Confirm the Sender - The only way a phishing attempt is successful is when the person receiving the message interacts with it. Your staff needs to know that an email has come from a legitimate source before they interact with it, period. 
  • Don’t Click on Links and Attachments - Phishing emails and messages require the user to take action. If there are links or attachments sent in an email, users have to know they are interacting with a reliable email before clicking on anything. It’s so important to not click on links or open attachments when you don’t already know where the message comes from.

Unfortunately, cybercrime will be here a whole lot longer than COVID-19. That’s why it is essential that your staff is trained and understands the risks of allowing unauthorized entities onto your network. If you need help putting together a cybersecurity strategy, or you would like to talk to one of our knowledgeable technicians, call Marin Technologies today at (208) 329-6792.

Three Ways Your Business Can Embrace the Cloud’s Benefits

Hosted Email

Email remains a critical tool for businesses, that much has not changed. What has been changed is how businesses can support this tool. Instead of the once-requisite investment of time, space, and monetary resources that an on-premise email server brought with it, many are using email solutions supported by the cloud. While we’ll go into the additional benefits of Software-as-a-Service aside from email later in this blog, this approach to email has opened greater opportunities to smaller organizations in a more financially feasible package.

Hosted VoIP

In a similar vein, VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, has offered businesses and even consumers an improved means of placing phone calls. Available to be hosted onsite or in the cloud, many businesses have chosen the cloud-based option.

Why? Well, like hosted email, a cloud-hosted VoIP solution frees the user of any considerable hardware maintenance and simplifies the scalability of the solution to meet a business’ use case. It also adds a mobile aspect to your telephony, through the addition of a smartphone application.

As-a-Service Solutions

We alluded to this above, and so now we return to the assorted business tools that the cloud makes available to businesses, such as Platform-as-a-Service, Network-as-a-Service, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Businesses require access to these resources on a regular basis, which makes the cost-effective services of the cloud an appealing option for them.

If any of these applications sound like a good opportunity for your business, or you want to hear more about your options regarding the use of the cloud, give Marin Technologies a call. Speak to one of our IT professionals today by calling (208) 329-6792.
