Jack Shaffer likes staying busy. And he likes to make a positive impact. So when he decided to join the Advantage Technology team earlier this year, it was a match made in technology heaven. (No wonder his expertise is in Cloud-based systems!)
You wouldn’t expect an HVAC business to repair a car. They hire that work out to a mechanic, who is trained to do that work.
The same thing goes when a business needs someone to manage its computer and phone systems. Advantage Technology offers managed services that allows that HVAC company to worry about heating units and air conditions rather than servers and laptops.
Phone systems are not a one-size-fits-all solution. But Advantage Technology can help businesses determine which system is best for them.
“I think that’s probably the most important thing to answer and make clear,” account executive Brad Williams said during a recent Facebook Live chat on Advantage Technology’s page. “We’re not going to say here’s this neat little package and this is what will work for everyone. That simply is not the case.
Starting in January, the entire Advantage Technology team began our Weight Loss Competition. And this is not just for mere bragging rights; cash prizes were offered to everyone who lost a certain amount of weight. We started off by dividing into teams of four with a total of twelve teams. After the initial weigh-in, we struggled to lose every ounce until finally, twelve weeks later, we had the official weigh-in. The team to lose the most percentage of weight got to walk home with a cool $500 each!
Watch as the winners were announced live on Facebook:

Jonathan Knight always has loved to fix things. Growing up on a farm in Elkview, he always had something that needed to be repaired. So, he learned a lot of electrical and mechanical skills out of necessity. And, he learned as he went. He didn’t have the internet, so most of his beginning knowledge came from the encyclopedia. He says he “would’ve been dangerous” if he had the internet available as a kid.
On October 16, 2017, Belgian security researchers made public their findings that demonstrated fundamental design flaws in WPA2 that could lead to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks on wireless networks.
Named KRACKs, or key reinstallation attacks, this technique can theoretically be used by attackers to steal sensitive information from unsuspecting wireless users leveraging these flaws in the WiFi standard. Based on their research, CERT issued a series of CVEs to address this flaw, and most vendors affected have issued patches as of this writing.
