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.

A Clean Office is a Successful Office

Why Your Office Should Be Clean
In today’s day and age, it is extremely rare for a business to operate completely without technology of any kind. This means that, if the technology was to suddenly to stop working, the business would have a large organizational problem. The end results: downtime and lost productivity.

However, the cleaner your solutions are kept in a well-cleaned environment, the better they will function. If your environment isn’t maintained, your technology will suffer, and your business will feel the effects. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to avoid these consequences through best practices, diligent cleaning, and organization.

Organizing Your Solutions
How well organized are your organization’s documents and files? A document organization solution can help keep these critical files in a cohesive and usable state, organized in an intuitive hierarchy with integrated access controls. Compare this option to the tired, old filing cabinets that took up valuable space, offering minimal security and no protection against disaster for your critical files. The benefits of abandoning physical documents and going paperless can save your business capital, as well as do some good for the environment.

Keeping Your Network and Workstations Shipshape
Don’t forget to check the state of your technology and the files and data they hold. There are plenty of things that could be cluttered and disorganized there that can be resolved fairly easily. This includes your email inbox.

It’s remarkably easy to let your email inbox just pile up and become disorganized. However, thanks to the existence of automated filters, organizing your inbox can become just as easy.

If your desktop is cluttered and filled with files that don’t belong in your company’s shared filing system, you can emulate that hierarchy for these files as well. Creating a system of folders allows you to organize any files that you have, while moving any that should be shared to the appropriate spot.

Good, Old-Fashioned Cleaning Up
Of course, if you’re spring cleaning your office, you should probably involve some physical cleaning, so you can enjoy the benefits discussed above. Try going over your workstation with some canned air and have an IT resource open up your computing device and do the same to the interior. IT should do the same to the rest of your network infrastructure. Check your cable management for dust as well, making any revisions to cut down on dust accumulation and the risk of causing a fall.

There’s also the opportunity to participate in some old-fashioned spring cleaning as well. Give the floors of the office a good polish, scrub out the bathroom, and dispose of anything in the break room refrigerator that is no longer recognizable. As a result, your office will be a healthier and more pleasant place to work, boosting your employees’ satisfaction and productivity.

Tip of the Week: Which Headphones are Right for Your Needs?

Specifications
First, you should ask if the headphones in question will be able to serve your express needs. You’ll have to do a little bit of research into the specifications of each of the potential models you plan on looking at, as well as reviews whenever possible to see what the masses think about them.

The first factor you want to look at is the sound quality. Will you be using this headset to talk on the phone? In this case, the quality of the microphone and sound quality is going to be particularly important. Bluetooth headphones are often limited in their sound quality, but they are still perfectly usable for talking on the phone. If you absolutely have to use one of these devices, you should make sure that it’s a headset designed specifically for this purpose. The headsets that are primarily used for listening to music tend to fall short of expectations when considering phone calls.

Next, think about how your headphones might restrict flexibility in the office. If you’re using a headset that has a dongle plugged into your workstation, you might be limited by the distance your headset can travel from the source of the call. Some headphones will also have battery life variables that will need to be considered, and you can’t have your headset powering down in the middle of an important call.

Lastly, you’ll need to determine just how comfortable each pair of headphones is. You don’t want to be uncomfortable while being productive, especially since this could put your productivity in jeopardy. In order to get the most out of your headphones, make sure that they don’t hurt your head.

Other Concerns
There are other questions that you’ll want to ask about your headphones, but they will be based on factors within your office. These include how the headphones are used and inter-office noise. If your office doesn’t have a lot of noise, you won’t need noise-cancelling headphones, but otherwise they might be a worthy investment. To this end, over-the-ear headphones will prove to be quite valuable, but it’s best to err on the side of comfort for the sake of your productivity.

How to Identify If an Email is a Security Risk

It all starts by being aware of the issue at hand and staying vigilant of any potential threats. You should actively look for reasons not to click on links in suspicious emails. You can never be too careful, especially when there is so much on the line. Here are three warning signs that you can look for to avoid a malware attack via email.

Spelling and Grammar Errors
Nobody has perfect spelling and grammar, and it’s forgivable if they make a mistake here or there, but when an email is filled with errors that make it hard to believe its authenticity, perhaps you’re staring a red flag in the face. Professional messages will at least contain passable grammar that makes them easy to understand, but a malicious message might be filled with all sorts of nonsense that urges you to click on a link or download an attachment. Sometimes you might encounter a phishing email that’s very discreet, but this is more of an exception than the norm.

Links Leading to Suspicious or Unfamiliar Targets
Let’s say that you receive a message from your bank. When you hover over a link in the message, it shows that the link doesn’t lead to any site you’re familiar with. This is a clear indicator that you might be looking at a very well-orchestrated phishing scam. Before clicking on any link, just hover your cursor over it without clicking on it. In a bar at the bottom of your browser, you’ll see the target of the link. If it looks suspicious, you can easily disregard it or report it to IT.

Messages from Unknown Senders
Who did you receive the message from? If you know who sent the message, then perhaps the message is legitimate. However, it’s easy for hackers to spoof an email address and make it appear that someone else is sending a message. Remember, suspicion is better than falling into a trap. In a worst-case scenario, even a CEO or upper-level employee could have their account spoofed in a phishing or whaling scheme. If you suspect that this has happened, notify your IT department immediately so that measures can be taken against these efforts.

Thankfully, with a little bit of thought and caution, you can avoid most fraudulent emails, but it would be nicer if you didn’t have to worry about seeing these messages in the first place. An enterprise-level spam filter can keep fraudulent and spam messages at bay. To learn more, reach out to us at (909) 287-3621 | (208)-316-4357.
