by | Oct 24, 2022 | Company

New Year, New You (and us!)

We are very excited to announce two new support members at Macro Connect!

First we have Herb Buckley. Herb comes to us with years of experience at Romulus Community Schools and has already been a huge help solving support tickets with a smile!

Second and most recently we had Antonio Smith join the team. You may have already seen Antonio helping get Chromebook carts ready for eager students.

Join us in welcoming Herb and Antonio to our team and yours!

‘Tis the Season

This last month, there was an influx in providing IT support for schools and as we wrap up another busy summer, we are reflecting on all that we and our clients in K-12 have accomplished. For example:

  • Detroit Achievement Academy’s new school buildout is complete, and staff and students are loving the renovations and improvements in their new facility.
  • Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School started the year with brand new interactive panels and MacBooks for all their staff.
  • Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences moved back to their main building after a tragic flood last school year created the need for a temporary location. They also launched anew reporting dashboard utilizing Power BI to empower teachers to identify at-risk students.

Cybersecurity Today

Given the state of Cybersecurity and the recent attacks in the news locally, we are offering a free trial of Huntress during October to help add another layer of security for your IT environment.

Huntress is a 24/7 Endpoint Detection Response and Managed Detection Response application that looks for the signs of a malware attack in the early stages and has the ability to isolate the infected machine from the rest of the network.

Reach out today for information or to start your trial!

Your Friends Are Our Friends

For the month of October, anyone you introduce to Macro Connect is eligible for a free Human Risk Report.

At no cost to them, we will complete a free phishing simulation, a scan through the Dark Web for breached credentials, and a scan for lookalike domains, along with a complimentary cybersecurity debrief to present their cyber security threat level.
