Many people are comfortable with the knowledge that the information on their computer is protected because they have a nice complex Windows password. After all, if your password is not your name or simply “password”, then no one will easily be able to guess it…
This is not protecting you!
So what’s the problem? Well, did you know that it is possible to completely bypass a Windows password, and even Windows itself, by using software that is freely and easily available and one hundred percent legal?
However, help is at hand! If you have your hard disk encrypted, which is a simple software process, then nobody will be able to gain access to your data unless the correct password is entered as soon as you turn on your computer. This means that not even Windows will be able to load without that password.
Contact Southern Cross IT now, use our encryption service and be secure in the knowledge that the only person able to gain access to the data stored on your computer is YOU!
Incidentally, if you happen to have forgotten your Windows login password we can fix it quickly and easily!
Romsey-based company Southern Cross IT can help you to work more productively with a new piece of computer hardware …..
Traditional Hard Disk with platters and a mechanical arm
Your hard disk could be slowing you down! Up until now, traditional hard disks have consisted of a mechanical spinning plate with a metal arm, and although technology has advanced the speed of these hard disks significantly over the years they have now reached their performance limit. New technology had to be called in to save the day!
Step in Solid State Disk Drives …… SSD Drives are significantly faster than traditional hard disks as they have no “seek time”, which is the time it takes for a hard disk to find the data that is required. With a traditional hard disk this requires the spinning of the plate up to speed and then the movement of the arm across the spinning disk. All of this is eliminated with an SSD Drive as there are no mechanical parts – the information is found electronically instead.
A modern SSD with no moving parts
So, to allow your PC to be as fast as it needs to be, enter the world of SSD!
To find out whether your PC is compatible with a shiny new SSD Drive, please contact us at Southern Cross IT – we can help you with all your IT and computer needs (AND internet telephones, AND a new website, AND some very clever cloud computing!).
