UPDATED Bitdefender Module

... heck, I'm going to stop putting version numbers in the title ...

Bitdefender has an updated module v9.5.1.78 for VSA. It appears to correct some errors if you're deploying to Mac or Linux devices.  Read the release notes.

Pursuant to previous posts in September and August about this, download and import the new VSAZ file in the License Center.

Using Live Connect on Demand

One of the most important things in today's IT support world is remote access.  I mean, hardly anyone even knows what "rolling trucks" means nowadays, am I right? (Showing my age even saying that, I know.)

We all know that there's some way to get "there" ... but which way should we use?   Oh, and sure, this whole remote monitoring thing is great, but how do we get remote access to a device to install a remote monitoring agent that ... has our remote access service?!?

Hello, Chicken?

Wait -

Halt MacOS update Mojave

Sometimes, speed isn't of the essence ...

Yes, OSx might be awesome because of the free upgrade to the latest and greatest.  But with any software, there's that might in the sentence. It might go sideways too.  So why don't we put a pin on that little bugger and wait until the more gullible in the world figure out if they just got hosed?
