Today feels a little like I'm going back in time. You see, I've been suggesting to all of my clients for quite some time now that they move to a storage system that doesn't require local access.

Our first, and usually only line of defense is Malwarebytes AntiMalware, and it is the platinum standard for antivirus software.
