Building The Raspberry Pi: Securing the Raspberry Pi

Raspberry PiThis post is part of the series on building my new Raspberry Pi; this series is a sub-series of the Adventures with a Raspberry Pi.

The official Raspberry Pi site has details on how to secure the Raspberry Pi. The page covers the following:

  1. Change your default password
  2. Change your username
  3. Make sudo require a password
  4. Ensure you have the latest security fixes
  5. Improve SSH security
  6. Use key-based authentication
  7. Install a firewall
  8. Installing fail2ban

I’d recommend taking a read through the page and enacting at least some of the above.

Implementing SalesHQ Portal: Conclusion

SalesHQ PortalThis post is part of a series on Implementing SalesHQ Portal, which is one of the GP Elementz Portals from my new employer, ISC Software Solutions.

I realise working for the company who created and sells the Sales HQ portal prevents me from being a neutral reviewer, so I won’t try to offer a conclusion as I have been doing on recent series. Instead I’ll leave you with a quick recap of some salient points:

  • Responsive design which works on desktop, notebook/laptop, tablet and mobile/cell.
  • Portal is hosted on Azure; but no inbound ports need to be opened on your firewall.
  • Salespeople can be assigned multiple customers to look after; customers can be assigned to more than one salesperson.
  • Access for customers to view their account.
  • Salespeople can create prospects or raise quotes/orders/invoices.
  • Free trial connected to your system available so you can try SalesHQ risk free.
