Our September issue begins with a "refresher course" in Malware.  We throw this term around frequently, and it covers many threats that can impact your PC and data.  So, we present a recap of what is lumped under the term "malware" and steps you can take to harden your defenses against possible infections.  We also debut a new desk phone from Zultys, our Unified Communications partner, featuring a 7" screen for those using Skype or other video conferencing tools.  Plus we discuss new tools from Zultys to improve business collaboration.  Microsoft is working on DaaS - Desktop as a Service.  This is really nothing new if you were into computers in the 60s - a centralized source for your programs and such - only now it is positioned as a Cloud-based service. We explain what Microsoft is up to in our coverage.  Google also makes news with the G Suite, trying to take Microsoft Office head-on for dominance in the workplace.  And, speaking of workspace, Facebook Workspace brings social media into the office to promote team knowledge exchange and group collaboration, and we have details.
