With the increase in the internet penetration rate and the adoption of technology by many people around the world, the focus has now shifted to the safety of personal data and devices. The number of cybersecurity cases have increased significantly with time and some firms such as Unroll.Me have developed solutions to curb the menace. The organization was formed to help its clients to have control over their emails.
One is required to subscribe for the service for free to enable them to easily unsubscribe from unwanted subscriptions. A daily list of the subscriptions is automatically prepared and sent to the subscribers. Through the Unroll.Me service, you are guaranteed a clean inbox. Unroll.Me recommends internet users to adopt several measures to curb cybersecurity threats and hence improve their experience.
One of the common practices is ensuring regular software update. Recently, many internet users were threatened by cybercriminals through ransomware. In such a case, one is required to pay a ransom to avoid the destruction of their personal data. In early 2017, hundreds of thousands of people from 150 countries were affected by ransomware. The emails are one of the main platforms where ransomware are used.
Experts urge email users to avoid downloading software from unknown sources to avoid such attacks. Some of the institutions that were affected by the 2017 cybersecurity incident include hospitals and educational institutions. It was a lesson to many people that they should always ensure that all their software are up to date.
Many people don’t like going through privacy policies as they consider them to be boring. However, it is necessary to do so as they contain crucial information about what to expect from a company. One of the privacy policies for Unroll.Me is that the company may collect, use and sell your data provided it’s not of personal nature. One of the incidents that made people realize the need for this practice involved Uber and its rival company. Many people were surprised due to that policy by Unroll.Me. The other way that your personal information may get compromised and exposed to third parties is through the use of some third-party applications.
Marketing has become a very competitive part of the business as there are just so many new and innovative ways the companies try to woo its target audience. Marketing is what decided the outreach of the firm and helps businesses get an edge over its competitors. If the firm does not emphasize on their marketing efforts, it would sooner or later show in the revenue as well. It is because people consume what they are marketed, and in most cases, the market trends are set by the effective marketing campaigns. So, if your product or brand does not have an effective marketing medium that connects your brand with your target audience, you can potentially lose your clients to your competitors, every single day.

You don’t have to be within the industry to know that Talk Fusion has become one of the biggest video communication firms on the internet. Talk Fusion was founded by CEO Bob Reina way back in 2007. Reina hadn’t been able to find a platform he believed in so that he could market his products via videos embedded in emails. So Reina did the thing that every entrepreneur should do: he created the service he needed. Now, ten years later Talk Fusion is a hit and they are being awarded for their hard work. Talk Fusion was recently awarded the Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award by the Technology Marketing Corporation.
Rich Tehrani is the CEO of Technology Marketing Corporation and he was the first person to give a shout out to the award winners. Tehrani stated, “It gives me great pleasure to honor the recipients of the 2016 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.” Tehrani went on to call Talk Fusion a true leader within the industry and a representative of the “best of the best products and solutions available on the market today.” Tehrani’s words weren’t empty, either, as they came at the behest of Talk Fusion’s coveted Video Chat application.

The Video Chat app was designed to interface multiple people from any mobile device in the world so that they can communicate via video.

Not a bad price for something that can be seen as a game changer, right? Talk Fusion on Facebook.
Talk Fusion CEO Bob Reina isn’t one to let a chance to speak highly of his workers go by. Reina said, upon receiving the award, “This is just the beginning. Our talented IT team has big plans for the future.” Reina went on to praise how his team focuses on staying ahead of the curve and ahead of the competition. Looking at the results, we can’t argue with that.
For millennials in the business world things can take a dreary turn relatively quickly, but Billy McFarland does not think it should be that way. Indeed, so strongly did Mr. McFarland feel about the state of the current of millennials in the workforce in his residency of New York City that he created a business to cater specifically to them, Magnises. Magnises is a membership only organization which is, like it’s creator, based out of West 24th Street, New York City. Once membership is attain all customers will be given a little ebony card made of metal which can be flashed at any of the many businesses and other venues affiliated with Magnises whereupon the card owner will be granted a sizable financial discount on all goods and services at the given establishment as seen in Crunchbase.com.
While this might sound quite standard Magnises is far more than just a fancy coupon club. For the benefits of McFarland’s company do not stop with mere discounts, for in addition to the financial slashing, card holders will also be granted instant VIP status which means increased access. Additionally, the card can also be used in conjunction with the Magnises App which lists all of the affiliated business venues and tracks them in real time and lists their location. What this means is that you can easily plan out your calendar such that you never miss a Magnises affiliated event such as a concert, dance or gala.

Billy McFarland, a former computer engineer at Bucknell University, explained in a recent interview that the idea for the company came about due to the profligacy of credit cards. Ubiquitous items which people carry with them everywhere and use for financial interactions have a ritualistic quality, especially for millennials, much in the same way cell phones are viewed by most, not as a luxury, but a necessity for business. As such, McFarland gambled on ubiquity and ritual and won big time. Read more here in Wikipedia.com.
