  • Bounce Rates – A Canary In The Coal Mine.

    No comments April 30th, 2018 51

    Consider that people find your website and visit you intentionally. They do that because they are looking for something. They believe that you might provide a service, a product, or information that they seek. Bounce rates show us how many people are immediately discouraged upon arrival or are suddenly convinced that we don’t have what they seek when they first lay eyes on us.

  • SmarterMail Upcoming Maintenance (POSTPONED)

    No comments April 27th, 2018 55

    This Saturday, the 28th at 10PM MST we will be performing an update to the SmarterMail service on our primary SmarterMail server. This is a minor bug fix release that addresses some issues reported by our customers.

    • The Chat With textbox is now hidden when you go offline
    • All subsequent SMTP Auth attempts try to use CRAM-MD5 after first CRAM login
    • Auto-responder is not using the Reply-To header field, if specified
    • Certain CardDAV clients may lose phone number after syncing
    • Trying to attach the same file more than once prevents the message from being able to be sent

    We have also resolved an issue where SmarterMail was stalling nightly between 6 – 8PM MDT. The issue was traced down to our backup software. Currently, the backup software has been disabled pending a review by the developers of the backup utility. We are also still working closely with SmarterTools to see if the exact cause can be narrowed down. Currently the system is stable and is not stalling.

    During this time, our incoming gateways will process and hold any incoming email and deliver them once we have completed the update.


    All dates & times are listed as UTC.

    Max Outage Duration: 1 hour


    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support department.

    Update: This scheduled maintenance has been postponed, we will announce once the updated schedule has been released.

  • 5 Examples of Machine Learning

    No comments April 24th, 2018 58

    Machine learning is a subset of AI systems that has become an essential tool for many. The phrase is used to describe the process of a programs ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Essentially, we are talking about programs that write themselves.

    Financial

    Investment firms, traders and hedge funds are using machine learning to create artificial intelligence with the ability to predict when the market will rise and fall. After making predictions these programs then automatically buy and sell based on those predictions. Rapidly implementing strategy faster and more accurately.

    Marketing

    More data than ever before is being collected about peoples personal lives. Between mobile devices and social media we are generating over two and a half quintillion bytes of personal data every day. Marketers are using that data to find and identify buying patterns, media preferences, dislikes, and preferences. The content and placement of advertisements is being customized using machine learning to find the optimal times, place and way in which to introduce their products to new customers.

    Health

    Machine learning is being used in the medical field to identify and treat illness much earlier than before. Early detection systems are trained just like other machine learning systems by training the program with tens of thousands of examples.

    Automotive

    Smart cars, driverless vehicles and data collection systems fitted on our driver operated vehicles are playing a role in collecting huge amounts of data about driving conditions, hazards, patterns and behaviors. As we transition to vehicles which are more connected to each us, each other, and the world around us that data will continue to grow. Wherever there is a lot of data there is an opportunity to use it and despite the already obvious impact machine learning is having on driverless cars we are only scraping the tip of the iceberg.

    Security

    Data security firms are making use of machine learning to analyze and react rapidly to cyber attacks. Being able to identify the signs of an attack and implementing quicker responses could prevent or neutralize many common threats including ransomware and malware.

    Every avenue of technology in our society is growing and evolving. The impact of these technologies is changing all of the time. The near future holds a lot of possibility and machine learning is just one of the technologies that is making a widespread global impact. In the next decade machine learning is expected to be a part of almost every industry. The question isn’t “if” but “how” will your industry use it?

  • Three reasons why the cloud is more secure than your legacy systems.

    No comments April 23rd, 2018 44

    New things can be scary. Especially with the way we handle our data. Before embracing a new platform, feature or technology we tend to worry at first. When it comes to cloud computing it isn’t any shock that the same thing seems to be true. Despite the fact that more than half of small to medium sized businesses use the cloud for storage there is still a good amount of confusion and even some uneasiness.

    Security

    This is the first of a few concerns people often have. A legacy system can be historically hard to access and because of its limited access, often hackers were blocked from getting into the system unless they were specifically on site. Today many companies use them in tandem with cloud infrastructure and backup services. This means that those systems which were previously secure because of their limited access are now often easily accessible. Its flaw was once its best feature and today that feature has vanished out from under you. A locked door is no longer the only access point to these systems.

    Cloud providers like ASPnix have physical data centers with armed security, redundant backup systems, cameras, and more. All activity is monitored and only authorized personnel come and go.

    Limited Access

    Cloud data is stored at a data center which keeps it geo-located separately from the data you have at your office. This means its more difficult to get all of the pieces of a puzzle and makes mission critical data harder to put together with stored cloud data. Human risk decreases and its harder for anyone to stumble onto data that can be used negatively.

    Cyber Security

    Due to the nature of things, obviously your information is more secure when you have professionals watching over it. ASPnix provides free antivirus, hardware firewall and other nice security features that can help keep you safe.

    Backup

    Redundancy is key and backups, power systems, accessibility all need to be 100%. Trusting professionals in a datacenter is a great way to have your cake and eat it too. Limiting the amount of responsibility on your part while also getting a better way to store your data, more accessibility without costing you more money.

    To sum up what I am saying. Migrating to a cloud option with a company like ASPnix is a great way to save money, get more out of your data, have better access to your data, control how it can be accessed easily, increase your security and to make sure it stays backed up without dealing with the hassles and issues and threats you may have with your legacy systems.
