Atlantic, Tomorrow’s Office Launches Private Cloud
May 14th, 2015 New York, NY
Bill McLaughlin, Chief Technology Officer, is pleased to announce the launch of the Atlantic Private Cloud with its partner Net Access, an industry leader in colocation and data center services. Atlantic’s private cloud is designed to offer the same features and benefits of public cloud systems, but removes a number of objections to the cloud computing model including control over enterprise and customer data, worries about security, and issues connected to regulatory compliance. It also allows for Atlantic’s world class IT support to manage and control the environment without seeking third party support.
Larry Weiss, Chief Executive Officer, states “Atlantic continues to find new, innovative and cost effective ways to support our valued customers. Our Private Cloud offers small and medium businesses a large economy of scale cloud infrastructure without the massive capital or human resource expenditures required to build and manage in-house. SMBs benefit with scalability, flexibility, freedom from system maintenance, and lower operational costs.”
Through this partnership, Atlantic is able to launch this easy to use, fully automated cloud infrastructure in Net Access’ secure and compliant Parsippany II data center.
“Net Access is extremely pleased to have this new partnership with Atlantic, Tomorrow’s Office,” states Steve Callahan, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Net Access. “Our data center services offer a secure and reliable foundation for Atlantic Private Cloud and will help to strengthen their ongoing commitment to meet the technology needs of the small business community in the New York Tri- State area.

5 Steps to Getting Document Management Right – From the Beginning
A new document management system can help you release the untapped potential of your business for greater productivity, efficiency and growth. But where do you begin?
An experienced, professional solutions provider can guide you with an easy-to-follow road map based on best practices. They can pave your way to achieving success.
Step 1 – Assessment: The purpose of an assessment is to learn from different departments which document types and processes could benefit the most. For example, would your CFO benefit from convenient mobile access to approve invoices and monitor workflow with instant status reviews? Or are your mission critical company records safely and securely stored in case of a disaster, either human or nature?
Step 2 – Client Presentation: Based on the findings in the Assessment step, you can receive a customized solution in the form of a demonstration for all the decision makers and department users. The decision makers and users need to feel comfortable with this solution. If there are any questions, this is the time to have the discussion. Everyone needs to feel confident in the solution....

Atlantic Tomorrows Office has been remediating issues with some of our Managed IT clients who have become infected with the CryptoWall ransomware exploit. This malware is becoming more prevalent, and to date none of the major virus protection programs such as AVG, Symantec, Kaspersky and McAfee have been able to come up with a method of blocking the Trojan.
CryptoWall is similar to the well-known CryptoLocker Trojan. Once executed on your PC, the malware encrypts your user files with an unbreakable code and prompts you to pay for the decryption key. Once the malware is removed, the recovery process is to restore your files from backup, which will cause any updates made since the last good backup to be lost.
Please note that this is a Trojan exploit and NOT a virus and, as such, is difficult for antivirus programs to stop. This is why users with up-to-date antivirus are getting infected. Below are recommendations to help your firm avoid getting infected by this crippling application:
- Advise the employees in your firm to question all of their attachments - this is the single best way to avoid infection. The majority of these infections are caused by unsuspecting users opening files that are attached to emails.
- Before clicking on a link, regardless of who it’s coming from, users should hover over the link with their mouse to see if the URL is the same as said link. For example, make sure if an email says “click here to retrieve your fax” that you verify (by hovering) that the link takes them to the fax service you utilize. When it doubt, simply leave the link alone and visit the fax service website to retrieve the data.
If anyone is unsure of an attachment, they should resist the urge to open the attachment to see if it is ok. Check with the author of the email in question.
While there’s no sure-fire way to guarantee you will not encounter CryptoWall, good judgment and caution will get you a long way towards keeping your files safe.
