Lenovo Yoga 720

The Yoga 720 is a convertible laptop created for the mobile multitasking generation.

It offers a range of features designed to deliver a good Windows 10 experience for the home and office. The Yoga 720 and Windows 10 are designed to adapt to the way users work, not the other way around. Users can write or draw with the Lenovo Active Pen 2 (optional extra) and Windows Ink in the same way they would with pen and paper—no adjustments necessary. It has a responsive touchscreen which distinguishes between intentional pen input and accidental pressure from the user’s palm, so writing and drawing feel fluid and natural.

Multiple usage modes 

The Yoga 720 detects which mode it is in—laptop, tent, stand, or tablet—and automatically adjusts its performance and thermals accordingly. With optimized cooling for every mode, it is designed not to overheat in the user’s lap or hand.

Thanks to the integration of antennas in Lenovo’s hinge, it maintains optimum Wifi performance in any mode, so users can get continuous connectivity up to 200 meters away from the hotspot.

The Lenovo Yoga 720 is available at Takealot.com from R19 999

Vox launches customised firewall service for SMEs

In light of the growing number of cyber threats facing modern organisations, integrated ICT and infrastructure provider Vox has announced the launch of a Managed Firewall Service aimed specifically at South Africa’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Click below to read more about the firewall service.

Companies targeted by ransomware have to pay between R50 000 and R150 000, and most small businesses pay up rather than lose all their information – be it financial data, customer data, billing records and more. 

The risk is greater in the SME segment of the market. While corporates can prioritise security at the C-Suite level, these smaller companies often do not have the relevant experts within the organisation to set and enforce security policies and procedures, and need the expertise of a third-party to protect them.

“We have customised a Fortinet solution so that it can be made available at a competitive price point to smaller businesses,” says Craig Freer, Executive Head for Cloud and Managed Services at Vox. “They will now have access to best of breed technology from a global company that is at the forefront of innovation in cybersecurity.” 

Fortinet’s leadership in security has been recognised by a favourable Gartner Magic Quadrant ranking for over a decade, and local SMEs will now have access to some of the best firewall technology on the market.
Customers further get access to comprehensive reporting capabilities that allow them to make informed business decisions around security, particularly around user behaviour and their environment.

Freer said: “Apart from just monitoring for, and protecting an organisation from external cyber threats, a well-monitored firewall will also help better manage network usage and data consumption, which is especially vital for small businesses that often have to make do with connections that offer lesser bandwidth.”

The firewall solution for SMEs is also available as part of a managed service. In this instance, Vox will ensure that certified firewall engineers set up policies that are correct, comprehensive, and well enforced, in order to protect the business’s data and network. This includes crafting a strategy for what an organisation should do in case a breach occurs.
