And the winner of the GT86 is?
Congratulations to Imatec Solutions in Matamata for being the first winners of our Toyota GT86 sports car for two weeks, which will be wheeling their way at Labour weekend. Thank you to Ian and his team, and everybody else who went in the draw through buying VoIP products from Soft Solutions in the last month. If you would like to be the next lucky winners, the competition is open again now - resellers who buy selected VoIP products between 20 October and 14 November can go in the draw to drive our Toyota GT86 for two weeks. The small print: need to have bought at least $500 across multiple orders for VoIP products from Soft Solutions - that's 3CX, Grandstream, Yealink or other brands listed on our VoIP micro-site. You need to add the car to your insurance policy while you have it. You pay the tickets :-) We want you to have fun, but you pay for us to make good any nicks, dents or scratches. What can you order to get in the draw? Click to see the brands listed on the Soft Solutions VoIP micro-site.

SSL v3 POODLE Bug Addressed by PRTG
As you may already be aware, a new security vulnerability has been discovered in SSL 3.0. Despite being an older encryption technology that is only used in less than 1% of SSL traffic, most web servers still allow this protocol to enable older browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 to connect. Recently it has been found that hackers could exploit POODLE to covertly watch their victim's web browsing or even take control of their web sessions. It is therefore recommended that the use of SSL v3 is discontinued altogether. PRTG have released an update for their software to disable SSL 3 - PRTG customers with current maintenance can upgrade from their customer service portal. Read more about POODLE here.

WebMonitor for Application Control

The new version of WebMonitor has introduced a new form of licensing with a single full-featured edition to cover all environments making renewals a breeze. GFI WebMonitor 2015 Subscription starts at an RRP of $40.79 plus GST per user, with a minimum of 10 users. Read more in our blog or contact our sales team for more information.

OS X Yosemite & Dragon Dictate Issues?
With Apple's release of the OS X Yosemite as a free upgrade for customers, there might be issues for existing Dragon Dictate users. If an existing user has already installed Dragon Dictate 4 and are upgrading to Yosemite, there are no major problems. But users who have upgraded to Yosemite and then installed Dragon Dictate 4 or if an existing user creates a new profile, there may be some issues when completing the voice training. At the moment Nuance is testing a point release of Dragon Dictate which will be provided as a Sparkle automatic update for all customers. This will address Yosemite specific issues with Dictate and will be released at the end of the month once testing is complete. Nuance will be posting Tech Notes to address most common customer issues, you can find the tech note covering voice training issues here.
