Portland IT firm Winxnet growing at blistering
Published in The Portland Press Herald, May

The 15-year-old company bought Portland-based
InfoSecurus last month, and it has three more
acquisitions in the works.
Many companies, by virtue of the
business-to-business services they offer,
remain out of the public eye. That was the
experience of Winxnet, a Portland-based
provider of information technology services
founded in 1999. Until recently.
Driven by organic growth and mostly word of
mouth advertising, the company has increased
its revenue by 189 percent from 2009 to
2013, a performance that got it named twice
to Inc. magazine's fastest growing company
list. Now the company is embarking on its
next growth strategy - acquisitions.
The Password that Could be Your Organization's

If we told you that a single password is all
that stands between hackers and the entire
Internet security of your organization, you
might think that we are exaggerating and
even full of it. Or, perhaps you would think
that we are referring to your coveted
Windows domain administrator credentials,
which you diligently keep protected and
monitored (hopefully). You will say that it
really is only available on your internal
network that is also well-protected, and so
on and so forth. However, that is not what
we are talking about.
You might not think about it when you're browsing the web,
but you and your colleagues are the first line of defense
against cyber security risks. The power to be
safe is in your hands and at your fingertips.
Developing and maintaining good habits can make
online activity much safer and more enjoyable
for you and your organization.
The following 7 good habits take only minutes to learn and
are easy enough to incorporate into your daily work life.
The Internet of Everything: Four Technologies

There is so much talk about the Internet of Everything, but
how much of it is a futuristic pipe dream? After all, for nearly
two decades, companies have tried to sell consumers Internet-connected
fridges and microwaves, automated home lighting and heating
systems, and smart entertainment devices, yet these devices
have never caught on in a big way.
Clearly, the IoE is colossal, and growing. According to a
January 2014 research report from Raymond
James & Associates, there were 12.5 billion devices
connected to the Internet in 2011, including
nearly every computer in the world and over a
billion smartphones. By 2020, that number will
grow to 50 billion.
