Tip of the Month...

Super Bowl Sunday is February 4th and the New England Patriots are back (shocking) and will be up against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Whether you are in it for the game, competition, commercials, social factor or the half-time show, it is a free-pass to eat whatever you want.  Competition can be tough and we must all stay fueled.  Enjoy some pizza football bombs, waffle fry sliders, and more!

Solution Spotlight

Why do you need 2FA – Two Factor Authentication?

  • Global ransomware damage costs exceeded $5 billion in 2017!
  • Over 90% of breaches today involve compromised usernames and passwords. Once an intruder steals login credentials they have the ability to freely move around your network undetected.
  • Hackers can create a computer bot that will try every combination until they guess your password. When using a two-factor solution you prevent hackers from guessing your password and gaining immediate access.

February Reads

There are probably very few people who haven’t dreamed about how nice it would be to be able to work at home.  I only have a 10-minute commute into the office and I occasionally dream about staying home in my pajamas, on my couch with the TV on, and getting work done…Ok, maybe the couch and TV aren’t good ideas for remote work, but the pajamas I refuse to give up

Technology in 2018 has become ubiquitous. The first thing many people do in the morning (wisely or not) is reach for their smartphone to check their missed notifications. New cars are being shipped with built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, LIDAR sensors, and a whole host of other bells and whistles. The computers we use have become smaller, faster and more versatile than ever before.

Meet our New Team Member

Ricardo Guerra

We are excited to introduce you to one of our newest members of the Business Development Team, Ricardo Guerra, who also goes by Ricky.  Originally from Venezuela, he recently moved to Stamford, CT from Mexico City to join The TNS Group.  He was drawn to TNS because of the family-like feeling and the friendly company culture exuded throughout the organization.

Since moving to the Northeast, he has been taking in the wide array of personalities that he has encountered since moving to Stamford, and the fact that the City offers so much in a close proximity. To quote him, “It’s the perfect balance between the fast-paced lives of New York, and the mellow lifestyles of the Midwest.”

Ricky may be new to The TNS Group, but he’s certainly not new to the world of technology. 

His interest began when he was a child where he always envisioned the future as a time filled with technology. From there he went on to get a degree in Computer Science from the University of Missouri, Kansas City and received several technology certifications including; VMware, Cisco, IBM, Arista, Lenovo to name a few. This path lead him to work for several technology companies, including one in Mexico City, where he specialized in selling Cloud Solutions.

Outside of the workplace, Ricky relishes in spending time with his newborn baby boy, Luca James, and his beautiful wife Sarah.  He enjoys cooking and likes to kick back with a nice craft beer while enjoying a game of soccer with his favorite team, Real Madrid.  Word is spreading that he makes a mean baked ziti dish.

Where will you find him when he’s 60?  Somewhere in the Midwest watching his son’s professional soccer game.
