Hello IT Pro, 

Well that week flew by! We’ve been focused on Office 365. Gartner recently stated that 60% of Office 365 customers take an additional spam filter solution from day one, and another 20% purchase spam filtering within the first 90 days of service.

I thought I’d point out that EveryCloud sits neatly in front of Office 365 as an additional layer of security, taking care of spam and viruses plus giving you a whole load of new email management features. So if you sit in this camp, find out more here:

EveryCloud for Office 365

Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Free Tool

MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal for remote computing. It brings all the key remote network tools (SSH, X11, RDP, VNC, FTP, MOSH) and Unix commands (bash, ls, cat, sed, grep, awk, rsync) to Windows desktop in a single, portable .exe file that works out of the box. The free version includes full X server and SSH support, remote desktop (RDP, VNC, Xdmcp), remote terminal (SSH, telnet, rlogin, Mosh), X11-Forwarding, automatic SFTP browser, plugins support, portable and installer versions but only 12 sessions, 2 SSH tunnels, 4 macros, and 360 seconds for Tftp/Nfs/Cron. Thanks go out to lazylion_ca for suggesting this one.


 


A Podcast

Cloud Architects is a podcast on best practices, the latest news, and cutting-edge Microsoft cloud technologies. Nicolas Blank, Warren du Toit and Chris Goosen host discussions with various experts in the cloud space to gather helpful guidance and ideas.


 


A Website

How-To Geek is a website dedicated to explaining today’s technology. Content is written to be useful for all audiences — from regular people to geeky technophiles — and the focus is to put the latest news and tech into context.


 


A Free Service

BadSSL.com offers a simple, free way to test a browser’s security setup. This helpful service was suggested by Already__Taken who advises you to “test what your MITM proxy will happily re-sign and present to you as a valid site.”


 


Another Free Tool

WinDirStat provides free, open-source graphical disk-usage analysis for MS Windows. You’ll get a sub-tree view with disk-use percent and a list of file extensions ordered by usage. This tool was recommended by ohyeahwell, who likes to use it “for freespace as it can be deployed via ninite pro.”


 


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
