1. Preventing Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks: 9 Critical Requirements for Your Business (April 12, 2022)

According to the latest Netscout Intelligence Threat Report, there were over 9.7 million Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in 2021. That is 14% higher than pre-pandemic  levels.

2. Introducing atlantech|softphone (February 22, 2022)

Do you need a desk phone any more? Many of our customers are electing not to purchase/lease handsets and instead have their workforce use soft phones. What is a softphone? It's software that can act like a telephone, even presenting a dialpad on your screen. Softphones bring all of the functionality of a desk phone onto a laptop or desktop computer or mobile device. I've used one for over 10 years and couldn't imagine going back to using a desk phone. Now, many of our customers are using them, too.


3. atlantech|cloudfax - Solution to POTS Retirement (June 23, 2022)

A customer recently asked me… “If POTS lines are going away, how am I going to be able to send and receive faxes? We have regulations that require faxing and some of our customers still prefer fax.” My answer was short and sweet… “atlantech|cloudfax!” Yes, using “the cloud” you can send and receive faxes. atlantech|cloudfax enables business and government to send and receive faxes without on-premises hardware or software. Instead, workers use an email program or web portal to send and receive faxes.
