Integrated Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (IES), based in New York’s Hudson Valley, provides IT and cybersecurity services to companies ranging from large enterprises to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Co-founder and CTO Eric D. Gorman leads a team of ten experts in serving a diverse client base that includes financial institutions, nonprofit organizations, and more.

Their technical know-how keeps the company’s computer network—the engine—processing at peak performance and functioning with full force. But with the current high level of cybercrime, and the many ransomware variants, SMBs are more vulnerable than ever to serious downtime threats. To properly protect their SMB customers, this means adding managed security services.
Yes, it can be a hard thing to admit. Nobody wants to speak up about it. For everyone’s sake, though, someone has to break the social taboo and just come out and say it—Macs are not impervious to malware. As secure as Macs generally are, the fact is that hackers are targeting them more than ever.
It’s a common misconception that Macs run perfectly from day one until the day you give it away. We wish that were true.
